Good guitar
Pacho, 03.04.2018
I have a lot of time wanting to do with a Majesty or some JP Music Man but, not having the budget for it, I bought the "younger sister" and I have to say that I am very happy.
For starters, I love the finish (although it came with a small dent on the left side edge - seen from the front - with purely aesthetic damage but it saddens me a bit ... anyway), and it's very comfortable but, comparing it with my Jackson JS22-7 Dinky SB (lower range), the latter feels more comfortable and lighter.
The color chosen is Beautiful (except for the small injury it has).
In cuenato to the quality of sound came something de-calibrated with an intense flushing throughout the neck, more accentuated in the first and last, which also annoyed me a bit. The pills that come standard do not sound bad, but could put some more according to the "corresponding signature" (Illuminators?)
For the rest very good instrument.

My first 7 strings
Sebo_, 27.09.2018
Guitar of good quality compared to its price. Possible adjustments to the height of the ropes on arrival, but nothing bad (and it depends on everyone also, personally I did not have to do).

Advantages:
Relatively versatile, possibility to have a good clear sound (certainly less slamming on a Strat, but with a good definition though). The saturated sound is good, the 3 positions and boost (big positive!) Allow to have a wide panel of sounds. The vibrato is nice to use, and we move easily on the handle.

disadvantages:
The guitar detuned often when using the vibrato excessively, which surprised me a little. The stem of the vibrato fits just, so that it can fall easily if you play standing up and you have a little choppy. Small artifacts at the frets but nothing too bad.

In summary, a very good first 7 strings, with good value for money. I recommend it for small budgets who still want a quality guitar, and send big riffs of Dream Theater without having to put 4 000¤ :)
