« A good standard guitar »Published on 06/08/22 at 02:07
The sound is tight/good, the pickups put out a good signal, but there is no special character to it in any way that makes it stand out on it's own. As I say, you can emulate sounds of other types of guitars because of the single coil tap and humbucker configs - plus it has a whammy. The best sound for my liking is when you back off the vol. pot to about 75% on the neck humbucker for that half distorted rich clean with a treble bite. So it's my soul-less working guitar that can be modelled to sound like most things by amp and pickup config, but that's not a negative in my view because it's versatility is what made me choose it for a good allrounder to take on cover jobs where you need to sound like Jimi Hendrix one minute, then Chet Atkins the next.
If you want one iconic sound - then this is not really your axe, but if you want versatility, then it's a good deal.
