UTILIZATION

This guitar plays very well. It arrived needing a setup and calibration but once that was done - every fret is accessible and no buzz...PLays like a dream as I like to keep my action low...

The EMGs really crank out a hot signal and I'd be careful with sensitive amps as it can clip a clean signal at hot levels...
The sound for hi gain apps is sick! The EMGs just rip right through the mix...High end bite is crisp, lows and mids are well defined...The clarity of the notes is surprisingly clear...

The design is great, typical Les Paul type guitar...It's thin and light but solid...

SOUNDS

I use this guitar as my jazzy clean and my heavy gain beast...It cuts through a mix very nicely with or without distortion...It takes a clean or gain boost nicely too with little noise...That one beautiful thing about this guitar, lots of signal but not much noise..Don't forget to keep a fresh battery nearby as that can affect the tone greatly...Lithium is recommended...

This thing is built for Metallica but can deliver pop, rock, jazz, blues, etc...SHape the tone with the knobs and roll off a bit of volume to get a nice crunch...

OVERALL OPINION

This guitar rounded out my collection as I needed a hot EMG monster...This thing more than fits the bill...It surprised me with how well it can do jazz cleans...

The value is good...Sure there's better in this price range if you are looking for something different...But overall, it's worth it and no where near a bad price...It's held its value pretty well over the years although I have no intention of selling her...

I would buy it again but would insist on a good hardshell case...
