Overall Good Guitar - But Pickups Make Hissing Noise
By: db from Atlanta, GA
What is your overall opinion of this product?
Good Guitar - but pickups need to be replaced. I get a hissing noise as a note trails off. Happens in all pickup combinations (5 way switch) of the guitar. Read about static from the pick guard possibly contributing to the noise. I will just purchase some noiseless pickups and call it a day. I bought two (2) of these guitars - so I know that the problem is not isolated.
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
Build quality is good - although pickups leave much to be desired.
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Neck and feel of the guitar is good.
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
Tone is adequate - however, I plan on replacing pickups.
How did the stain or paint job look?
Finish was good.
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
Good value - Fender should ship them with better pickups.
How was the action out of the box?
Guitar was playable out of the box. Some adjustments were necessary - due to the Floyd Rose - but that is expected.
