Bought this unit from SweeLee, Singapore at around SGD$470/aft discount. I did well for exams and was looking at the Ibanez RGseries but perhaps it was not up to expectations. The guy there then recommanded me this guitar.

The sound is good! The Mightymite pickups lives up to its name. The guitar has a solid feeling too. The volume knob is at the correct position, dosent come in my way when I try to plam mute the strings. The tone is also superb. The Floyd Rose Licensed Bridge is excellent, but I had a little problem with it, I'll write it below. I usually play song from bands like Sonata Arctica, Dream Theater and Symphony X and this guitar fits in nicely. I dont know why other reviews say that the input jack comes loose easily, because it dosent seem like the type which can come loose.

One this i dislike about this guitar is that This guitar is pretty heavy, even heavier than my friends Yamaha bass. On my way home after I bought it, I found that the bridge was out of place, but no worries, just sent it back to the shop and they helped me correct it in no time. Oh, the tremolo-lock bridge can be abit of a problem too if you plan to change the strings within a short period of time. If you want to tune your guitar onstage, youre dead if you dont have the alenkey with you.

This guitar has a solid feeling. So far my guitar has yet to be scratched, dropped it once of the floor but everything was still in perfect working order. The body is made from basswood, nicely cut edges, and the neck if Im not wrong, is made from maplewood.

I would recommand this guitar to both starters and professionals alike. However, if youre pretty small built, might want to consider getting another one because this guitar is quite heavy. If this gets lost or stuck by lightning or anything, I wouldnt get the same one tho, must try new stuff all the time:)
