Sounds Like fender modded by the devil
By: Billy Potter from New Jersey
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
I own a Prs Tremonti SE, Limited edition Gibson Les Paul classic, A Gibson Les Paul studio and an Epi Les Paul. It is Up to par with My Gibsons in quality Aside from the FINISH as I will explain below.
How has it stood up over time?
Had the guitar for a few days now, bought it from American-musical.
Your general opinion of this product.
Overall, its a metal lovers dream, nice fat and clear chunk, with great clarity.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
It's a fast neck indeed, but not as thin as other similar style guitars, which is fine since I like a little width in the neck. Def skinnier than my Les Pauls. It has that feel of good craftsmanship via PRS, Parker, etc. It feels better than my 2000 gibson classic. The controls seem solid, unlike my Gibson models, which easily loosen up. Such as the toggle, volume pots, chord input, etc.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Tone reminds me a prs Mcarty without the muddiness, Perfect for metal, would go after the passive for any other genre other than hard rock and metal. Has a crisp clear and tight sound. I am liking the Seymour duncans better than the emgs i have on my other guitars.
How did the stain or paint job look?
Here's the issue...the paint is perfect, beautiful. However the binding around the headstock on my guitar is very un even on the left side. It's as if someone was doing it by hand and slipped forming an "S" or swurvy shape instead of a straight line. Also the binding on the fret board on each side fades in and out. But hey, it is a SOuth korean guitar, so that's what happens. Main point, a guitar's sound isn't effected by a bad factory binder...the guitar it self is impeccable excluding that. If this is the kind of stuff that keeps it from being a schecter custom shop 4000 dollar guitar so be it!
How was the action out of the box?
Action was luckily perfect out the box, absolutely beautiful.
