Chose this guitar over a Fender Texas Strat and a Yamaha Pacifica. It has all the qualities I need as a beginning guitarist and more. Traded in my first electric for it and would buy this model again.
Price: $700.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Musicmart, State College, Pa
Features:
Made in the US with a mahogany body and maple top. Nice looking green transluscent finish. Coil tap for the bridge pickup. Tele style body with a deep cutout for reaching the really high frets. Control knobs even have little rubber grippy things to let you adjust on the fly.
Playability:
The action straight from the shop was perfect for my playing. I could do all the bends I wanted and more. Very smooth!
Sound Quality:
Use it with a tube amp (boutique so the name doesn't matter) But it gets the perfect bluesy sound. It has enough range to do any cover band type playing, and can sound anywhere from tele-like to strat-like. I don't see as much difference out of the coil tap as I'd like.. my only complaint about the guitar.
Durability:
This thing is built to last. I'm not going to intentionally beat it, but it's solid as a brick outhouse. Haven't had it long enough to see about long term adjustments though. I bought straplocks to insure against dropping it.
