For the price nothing comes close to this guitar.
Model Year: 2001
Where Obtained: Hickies Music Store
US made Metallic Blue Basswood sculpted body in the Ibanez vein.
24 fret Maple hard rock bolt on neck with unusual headstock.
Volume and Tone dials and 5-way selector for Hum/Sin/Hum Mightymite pickups.
Floyd Rose trem for those Dave Murray moments.
It took a couple of weeks to adjust to the extra length after a Squier Strat but now suits and sits nicely during practice.
Selector switch is a bit to close the teh strings but I'm adjusting around that.
I have only used this with a practice amp and headphones but I am due to go into the studio soon so will get a chance to check it out against LP's etc.
It feels very well bolted together for a cheaper brand guitar and I would have no problem taking it around for gigs.
