Just a great guitar
By: Tonefiend from Tallulah, LA, USA
Your general opinion of this product.
Just a beautifully constructed instrument. Binding and finish are flawless. Tuners are wonderful, as is the bridge. I've put Tonepros on all my other guitars. This one came with it. The tuners are smooth, fast, and hold tune wonderfully.
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Haven't owned it long enough to say it's "dependable", but the build quality is outstanding. I figure it'll hold up. But the build quality is equal to or better than any $2k guitar I've handled. And the neck will smoke any Les Paul. ANY Les Paul.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
The Seymour Duncan JB and '59 will come up with most any tone you could want. Love the EMGs but I already have an Ibanez S920 with that pickup combination, so I went with the Duncans. Glad I did. Sounds fantastic, but I did have to kick the gain on my Blackstar amp up a bit to get the sound I want. (Compared to the active EMGs on my Ibanez)
How did the stain or paint job look?
I did my best to find flaws, and couldn't.
