  1. Almost perfect...

    Posted by Matt Lane on 8th Jul 2014

    The guitar is so perfect in so many little ways. It was assembled almost flawlessly, and arrived in pristine condition. It was fully set, and I didn't even need to adjust anything. It was literally perfect from the box.
    There was a technical issue, however. When I use the tone switch to flip over to use the neck pickup, the output of the guitar quiets. This seems to be a wiring issue, which doesn't occur every time I switch to that pickup. I've ruled out the fact that it may be the volume knob specifically for that pickup. Switching to the neck and back seems to be an effective tool in countering this.
    Other than the single pickup issue, this guitar sounds beautiful, and resonates quite wonderfully.
    As a small addition to this review, that master volume knob was absolutely genius! Wonderful guitar, and definitely worth the money.


  2. Outstanding guitar

    Hands down the nicest guitar I have played. The neck is so comfortable I can literally play for hours without discomfort. Well balanced eye catching design with versatility in tone. Finish is flawless and detailing beautiful.


  3. Hold on to your Hat this baby rocks!

    Posted by Ronm on 14th Apr 2014

    There are so many different combinations with the control of the 3 pickups both tone and volume (heavy metal to blues / rock) also neck is very fast and love the Bigsby Tremlo. and it screams play me. One Volume control was a great idea!

    Just a cool guitar. and looks are tops.
