It's HUGE!!!

jimdandy, 19.10.2013
Going from the head down on the guitar.....

Tuners work great. Held tune perfectly whilst I was jazzing out!

Truss rod cover I thought looked a little cheesy, but easy to replace for a standard looking one.

Neck has a nice feel to it. Fretwork is excellent and didn't need anything to rectify. No sharp edges, and set up well.

Body is a Mahogany laminate and finished in satin. I'm not a fan of satin, but each to their own. I'm sure it will polish to gloss if try hard! ;-)

The pickup is a mini humbucker with adjustable poles to even out the sound. Handy.

How does it sound? Well, plugged in it has a nice acoustic tone, and wind up the gain on a good tube amp and it screams in a dirty wonderful way. Overdriven woody tones..

It's a great guitar to fill a void for the archtop in your collection.

NOTE: If you've got an archtop with pickups on the top (humbuckers etc), this is a totally different beast. It's loud, it projects, and more importantly, it has a full tone, I can hear bass, everything. With the thick poly double humbucking guitars, you loose all depth.

okay, so this guitar is great.
the unplugged sound is rich and resonant, plugged in, the humbucker is very clean and bright, when playing at higher volume you can feel whole guitar vibrate against your body, also, it generates some beautiful feedback.
neck has medium thickness, but feels great, the tuners are... i would say okay, they stay in tune just fine

Pros: sound, body shape is really comfy, the pickup is mounted on the neck, not to the body which has its own unique sound, tuners are okay, you can tottaly use this guitar as an quieter acoustic. the electronics are working fine, guitar is really light, about 3 kg

Cons: the finish is not perfect everywhere, the pickguard is just a piece of wood, but you can take it off, there is a fret buzz on few places, trust rod cover also looke bit cheap

Guitar was shipped very well, strings very bit high, but intonation was really close to perfect, but as every guitar it needs a bit adjustment
another thing, the brige is not mounted or glue to the body, it just sits on the top and strings hold it in place,

overall 7/10
