  1. Beautifully built guitar

    Posted by Mark Kenific on 18th Aug 2014

    I have owned this guitar for over a year now and I still can't believe how nice it is. Having been a fan of Grand Funk, and especially Mark Farner when I was younger I was surprised to see a review of this beautiful tribute and had to have it. The quality is top notch. The fit, the finish, the paint, everything. I am sure this is a much finer guitar than the one it was based on. It's comfortable, beautiful to look at, easy to play, and the mini humbuckers are great! Sounds outstanding. Buy one!

  2. Superb instrument

    I have owned this guitar for several months now and cannot say enough good things about it. The pickups are extremely detailed and the tone is fantastic. Workmanship is top rate and this has become my go to guitar (I own 8 guitars including a Stratocaster).
