Frank Zappa? More like a Bug Zapper.

General Your general opinion of this product. First off, the thing plays like butter. Best guitar I've ever held in my hands, bar none. The tone possibilities are vast, the external craftsmanship, the wood, it's all exquisite. But then there's the... BUZZING. I read a couple reviews online about the buzzing, but man is it terrible. Playing through the clean channel, it's barely noticeable but add some gain to it & it is awful. Sounds like a cold solder issue. I can't record this thing, even using a noise gate. Just too loud. AMS has agreed to exchange it & hopefully the next one is dead quiet or I will opt for an SG Reissue or the like and go buy it from a place with a storefront in case any issues arise. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? I think it's a beauty, but how can you give it a thumbs-up on quality when it has such a glaring electronics issue after supposedly being "quality-checked?" Nope. Bad electronics = bad quality. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Endless tone possibilities, given all the control knobs/switches. That is, if you can get one that doesn't sound like a bug zapper. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The most beautiful thing I've ever laid eyes on. One solid piece of perfect wood, with a beautiful satin, rusty finish.
Beautiful Guitar
