UTILIZATION

This guitar is going to get a glowing review from me in every category, as it is one of the best guitars I've ever played. It is so well-designed in every aspect - ergonomics, playability, weight, sound capability, vibrato stability, neck stability, beauty. The smoothness of the neck and also of the vibrato system is remarkable. It is truly a great guitar, and one of the most original designs of the last 50 years.

SOUNDS

Electric tone wise, this guitar seems to live in shred-land, although it is way more than adequate at a variety of other genres. The bridge pickup screams, with lots of bite and upper harmonics. The neck tone is very smooth, and silky, and the middle position provides plenty of spank. Jazz, blues, rock, and country tones abound here, but shred is where this guitar shines.

Acoustic tone - well, what other electrics do you know that will do acoustic tones? The sounds are very convincing, and can split to another amp or be blended into the main amp. This allows the jazz, pop, and even other experimental sounds to happen, all "on the fly".

OVERALL OPINION

I give this guitar a perfect ten. It is a steal for the price, it is incredibly durable, it plays like a dream, and can get nearly any tone imaginable. The only way this guitar could be better is if the electric pickups had a 5 way switch or a 3 way with push-pull coil tapping, but I'll take what I can get.
