Overall Rating:
I would really like a custom, semi-hollow body. For the price range, this guitar is of excellent value, however, I would definitely try to move up into something closer to what I really want: exotic woods including EBONY fretboard, push-pull pickup selector (10 settings), light lacquer/finish (minimal), through-body (maybe).
Model Year: 1988
Price: $900.00
Where Obtained: Previous Owner
Features:
Made in California, Body wood unknown, fretboard is Indian Rosewood, neck is spruce (bolt on), Grover tuners, 21 frets, 2 tone/1 volume knob, standard strat pickups (fender), classic fender bridge.
Playability:
Playability is pretty nice, but I've really beat the heck out of this one. I've played hundreds of gigs with it as well as making it my main practice instrument. I call it "the workhorse" because I really don't have any regards for the looks; I am purely interested in tone and playability. It needs a couple hundred worth of maintenance work right now, including: fret crowning, intonation check, setup check, electronics resoldering, locking strap pegs, new bone nut.
Sound Quality:
I have been using a Roland Jazz Chorus 77 for about the last 10 years. I just can't seem to get rid of this amp! I rarely turn it past 5 and it screams above and beyond everything else if I need it to. I play all musical styles and this setup really caters to whatever I'm looking for in a sound. Overall, it's pretty warm, round, and lush sounding. There certainly are much nicer guitars but this one has served me well. I use a TS9 (vintage) Tube Screamer and a DOD envelope filter as well as a Dunlop Cry Baby Wah unit (vintage). If I don't use a good, grounding power strip, it tends to have a little buzz. It sounds great on stage and in studio, although I would have to lean towards the stage as far as the final sound.
Durability:
The finish is severely cracked from making the journey from California to Colorado, however, the specs have not been affected THAT much. Truss rod adjustments (minute) have corrected and warp/bow issues. Durability is probably the most outstanding feature of this guitar. Once the strings have a day to stretch, it stays in tune relatively well.
