Product Review

A wonderful instrument, similar to a Gibson ES-335, great looking mahogany wood grain with a Bigsby tremolo and a hard shell case. 2 mini humbuckers. Overall, a fantastic playing guitar. I first saw Neil Geraldo, Pat Benetar's husband playing one. Rich tone!

This is the one to have!

Your general opinion of this product.

This guitar plays like a dream.

I couldn't find so much as a finger print on this.It is perfect. One really well made guitar. As good or better than any custom shop guitar!

I also have a Starfire v, and this guitar is much lighter. It is balanced quite well and not neck heavy. The switches and knobs feel strong and in a good position. The neck is also smooth and not chunky. The frets are cut very well and as smooth as glass.

I've always liked brighter pickups. They're not dark and heavy, but have a really great tonal range. They are quiet. You can pretty well dial in most any sound you want.They're not P90's, but are bright and really get the job done!

Right out of the box I wouldn't change a thing. For me the set up was right on.I even liked the strings, and it stays in tune.

Like I said before, the finish on this guitar is flawless. Even the case was clean.The wood grain is amazing and the cherry red is right on.

I own 25 guitars from Gibsons,Gtetsch, Guild, Hagstrom,Epiphone,Ibanez, a couple 60's harmony's and others, just to mention a few.I've been playing for 48 years, so believe me this is one fine guitar. I've only had it a while, but so far it appears it will stand the test of time. I would play this guitat anywhere anytime.
