  • great guitar

  • Pros: any tone possible with s-1 switching system. pickups are very quite. roller nut and locking tuners keeps you in tune when using the whammy bar. very good neck profile.
  • Cons: setting up the floating whammy was a bit difficult. installed a tremol-no system in rear and replaced factory springs with heavier springs to tighten up the whammy. replaced frets with medium jumbo frets.
  • Experience: I own it
  • this guitar is capable of doing just about anything. good looks. good tone. you won't see man...

  • Pros: plays like a custom shop guitar. super quiet pickups. just about any tone possible with s-1 switching from spank to crunchy.
  • Cons: a little pricey, (still worth it) limited availability
  • Experience: I own it
  • buy this guitar
