What We Think

Weight: 7.6 lbs.

Oomph! This is one of those guitars that will make you remember why you first started playing in the first place: because nothing feels better! The comfortable C Vintage neck with a 1.650 nut width just feels right in your hands, and I don't think there is a single gig this one can't handle. For heavy handed pickers, legato masters or chicken/hybrid pickin' maniacs the Classic TS is smooth, fast, responsive, dynamic and easy to play! The action, intonation, and fretwork are all perfect meaning that those wide-stretching, close interval Holdsworth chords you love will jump out effortlessly. The tonal options are practically infinite. This guitar will scream for you at high gains, pop with your funk chuckin', twang like a Tele and give you a neck tone smooth as velvet. The Indian Rosewood feels and sounds amazing while the nickel cover of the humbuckers will add a little sweetness while cutting out a bit of top-end harshness. If you want a guitar that is heavy, bright, versatile, and warm, this modern take on an overwound PAF-type vintage tone will capture all the subtle nuances of your playing with expert clarity, power, and mojo.
