Overall Rating:
IT WAS THE FIRST MAJOR GUITAR PURCHASE I HAD MADE SO I GOT THE GUY IN SHOP TO GIVE IT WORK OUT, IF IT WERE LOST OR STOLEN IT WOULD REPLACED WITH THE SAME.I HAVE ONLY BEEN PLAYING FOR SIX YEARS SO SO THIS GUITAR IS PERFECT FOR ME .THE BEST ABOUT THIS BABY ITS PLAYABILATY ITS STUNNING LOOKS,THE DRAWBACKS ARE GETTING USED TO THE THREE PICKUPS . IF ANYONE SEE,S A BLACK BEAUTY PLAY,S A BLACK BEAUTY THEY WILL BUY A BLACK BEAUTY.
Model Year: 2002
Where Obtained: one way music wolverhampton united kingdom
Features:
MADE IN KOREA HAVENT GOT A CLUE WHAT THE BODY IS MADE FROM ,THE NECK HAS A ROSEWOOD FINGER BOARD WITH 22 FRETS AND ABALONE MARKERS , IT HAS 2 TONE AND 2 VOLUME CONTROLS AND A 3 WAY SWITCH [2RYTHYM 1LEAD ] IT HAS 3 CERAMIC DIPPED HUMBUCKERS,THE FINISH IS A HI GLOSS BLACK LAQUER INCLUDING THE BACK OF THE NECK,IT IS SINGLE CUT R/H,IT HAS LOCKING TUNERS ,
Playability:
I HAVE THE ACTION SET LOW [I JUST PREFER IT ] THE ACTION ALLOWS ME TO GET AROUND THE NECK WITH RELATIVE EASE,ONCE YOU GET USED TO THE THREE HUMBUCKERS IT IS A FANTASTIC GUITAR TO PLAY. THE ONLY DRAW BACK OF THE BLACK BEAUTY IS THAT IT IS HEAVY EVEN FOR A LES PAUL.
Sound Quality:
I HAVE PLAYED THIS BABY IN MOST STYLES ,IT IS AGGRESSIVE ASYOU NEED IT TO BE ,SOUNDS AS WARM AS ANY ARCHTOP WHEN PLAYING JAZZ TYPE CHORDS,AND IF YOU WANT PLAY LIKE ANY OF THE 3 KING,S IT,S AS GOOD AS SEX ,THE LOOKS OF THIS BABY WILL OUT SHINE ANY THING ELSE ON STAGE
Durability:
I HAVE USED THE BLACK BEAUTY MORE THAN ANY OF MY OTHER GUITARS PURELY BECAUSE I FEEL COMFORTABLE WHEN I PLAY , I HAVE MY GUITARS SERVICED EVERY YEAR ,IT HAS STANDARD STRAP HARDWARE,IT DOESNT FARE TOO BAD IN THE FICKLE ENGLISH CLIMATE.
