I wish i had another. if that doesn't say enough i don't know what does. If you have the opportunity too try one out, you may fall in love.
Price: $500.00
Where Obtained: Uncle Ike's Music
Features:
Made right here in the USA, neptune, NJ to be exact. Three piece maple 24 fret (6105 size) neck, with a ebony board. The body is made out of mahogany. The controls are very simple one volume and P/up selector switche (3 way les paul style). Two humbuckers, came stock with a duncan JB and full shred, now it has an EMG 81 and 60. Mine is the metallic red finish. Spertzel tuners, and and floyd rose double locking trem system.
Playability:
The way it plays is amazing. The action can be set extremely low and the 24 1/4 scale makes it a very light playing guitar. The neck is great, very thin and fast combined with some tall frets it's awesome. I wish i had another or if i could get the same neck shape on another guitar i'd do it in a heart beat.
Sound Quality:
I run this guitar through the following: Dunlop wah wah-->Marshall 9001 pre {loop} MXR 31 band EQ {loop}-->BBE 362 sonic maximizer-->Digitech time machine-->Mesa boogie 50/50-->H&K warp 4x12. It's sounds pretty awesome. I play mostly hard rock, so it's well suited for that. I find the tone from the guitar to be relatively dark, it's very rich sounding. I like it a lot especially on the clean channel. I've also used it for some jazz stuff, the floyd provideds a very stable tuning. It's noise when i'm in a situation when my rig isn't properly able to grounded but other than that it's fine.
Durability:
Climate changes affect it as much as anyother guitar with a vintage style truss rod. I take it in abotu twice a year for a full setup. I use it live all the time, i like how stable the tuning is (thank you floyd) so i don't have to worry about being out of tune. It came with straplocks, so no dropage problems. It's holding up pretty well, it's got a few dings, but that can be expected from a 10+ year old guitar.
