« Decent Beginner Guitar »Published on 04/01/11 at 21:15
It is super easy to access the top notes. The neck is fast, smooth, and easy to use. The guitar, being made of basswood, is extremely lightweight, and prone to neck dives (at least the one I had was). The shape is a bit ridiculous for my tastes. The headstock is waaay too big, and seems like it would be very easy to break.
This guitar has a decent sound. Not the best in the world, but not the worst. The pickups are not all that great. The cleans are lackluster and the distortion is harsh and trebley. It would benefit greatly from a pickup swap, but it's not worth it. This is not that great of a guitar. Everything seems to be lackluster and sterile. Nothing seems to have a good sound coming from this guitar. It's decent, but not anything truly great. Nothing sets this guitar apart from the others except the paint-job and Dime's name.
This is truly a beginner guitar. It seems to be of a low-quality and seems to use cheap parts. The Tuners are ok, but the stock tuners on my Jackson JS-1 Dinky are far better. The switch is decent as well. The body is very light, so that's a plus coming from someone with a bad back, but it's not enough to make up for the lackluster and sterile sound that comes from this guitar stock. This is a beginner's guitar and that's about it.
