Good axe to get for an entry into 7-string, multiscale guitars.

Johnboy69, 18.10.2017
Inexpensive, beautiful, and easy to play.

PROS:
Looks - It seriously looks amazing up close. It's more burled-maple than quilted, though.
Playability - No dead frets, flat fretboard, nice neck carve, decent fret edges below 18th fret.

CONS:
Pickups - Bridge pickup is muddy with gain, while neck pickup is too bright for cleans. Neither have much definition, making it easy to get lost in the mix.
Finish - Headstock (sides and back) feel/look rough and nearly unfinished, as if it wasn't sanded completely. There's also a small but definite "grove" between the different woods on the neck, making it feel like the neck also needs to be sanded.
Fretboard - Fretboard needs to be oiled, as it feels overly dry. Upper fret edges are rough. Two frets (14 and 17) seem to be less than level with the rest, with both giving more muted sounds on the A and D strings.
Intonation - Intonation is hard to get perfect, specifically on the B and G strings.

Overall, as my first 7-string and my first multiscale guitar, I'm happy enough with it to use it for practice. That said, I would sand the neck and headstock, change the pickups, file down the upper fret edges, level the frets, and change the electronics before I gigged with it. With all that work, I wonder if an different guitar would've been a better buy.

JYP Canada, 25.08.2017
Just got that guitar. Looks really good.

Just to set the context, I play for almost 30 years and I have bunch of more expensive guitars.

After a good setup, I got the action at a decent level. I like my action extremely low (less than 0.6mm on small E at 12th fret), this is not an option with the factory fret job on this guitar (closer to 1mm).
Fret edges are nicely rounded, no sharp edges, but leveling is just OK.

The back of the neck feels a bit rough, I'll have to sand that a bit. One of the darker strip even feels like it sticks out a tiny bit and feels sticky.

I play mainly with neck pickup and the one on that guitar is really bad... It sounds super dark and have no treble. I'll have to change that.

Tuning key are ok.

Finish on the body is perfect. Love it.
The fan fret is really cool. I have multiple fan frets guitars and love that.

So conclusion, it is ok for the price. Excellent guitar for beginners. Need rework and mods for more advanced guitar player.

I'm happy to have it, but not sure I would buy it again.
