The best semi-hollowbody guitar you can get for the money

23.12.2016
The guitar came with nice case, in a near-perfect condition (no wear, scratches, dings or any of that) but it was freezing cold because of the weather outside.
Even though i was a little skeptical about this guitar being made in China, the finish and quality is gorgeous. I was very surprised with it.
The sound is similar to a Gibson with '59 pickups, which to my ears sound astonishing. EXTREMELY versatile guitar, and the split coil switch makes the guitar sound bright and nice, but i don't think that i like the tri-tone setting, but oh well, who knows, maybe it'll come handy one day.

One problem that i had with this guitar is that it came out of the box with a poorly placed bridge pickup, i had to push it down with my finger to fix it ( it was placed very high) , and it still wiggles pretty badly if i touch it.
The second thing was the fret buzz. Oh my God the fret buzz was horrible. Almost all frets had fret buzz on every string, and I blamed that on the fact that it was sooo cold when it arrived, so i let it sit for a day or so at room temperature and most of the fret buzz was gone, but not all of it. It still needs a little tweaking.

In conclusion, I really really recommend this guitar, because i don't think you can get a nicer sounding and looking guitar for this price. It's and absolute steal !
