What We Think

Condition: Very Good. Shows no real signs of wear.

This guitar is really a joy to play! Its large fat neck feels great, even with my smaller hands, and has such a smooth inviting feel to it that I couldn't help but slide a few notes up and down the neck to feel how smooth the transition is. There is a certain elegance to its simplistic design that is impossible not to love. A singular master volume and tone really make it easy to transition pickup settings, without any rough dynamic transitions you might encounter on an ax with volume controls for both pickups. And the coil split is great for a little added versatility on the tonal front. It's no joke that this one was designed to rock out. It has a big and punchy tone that begs for a little bit of grit and attitude to give it a kick into the stratosphere. Both rhythm and leads feel right at home on this one and it gives back every bit of effort you put into it. If you need to rock out to get your kicks this ax will keep you smiling for years to come.
