It is a tell-tale sign that a guitar is going to shred when you pull it out of a box, tune it, and then throw it through some gnarly distortion and it just screams for more. At first glance the finish is far, far darker than advertised, but it is still beautiful. All of my other guitars are black, so I went out on a limb to get a flamed charcoal, but is more a trans black (It still looks gorgeous though).
I got the cinnamon color, although every color of it is shockingly beautiful. The sound is amazing, but i do have to admit it could use some more high end, which i think the i91 would have, but that would also cause it to have more noise, so i would still rather go for the i81. I use a Crate GLX (the newest crate model) combo amp with it and it sounds like a dream, especially on te distortion channel, but it is also very clear on the clean channel. It does not come with a whammy bar, so if you really want a whammy bar, dont get it, but personally, i never use a whammy bar and i think it makes your guitar go out of tune. This guitar has more bang for the buck than any guitar out there. I recommend this guitar to anybody, (Bigginer, intermediate, or expert)
I have owned this guitar for over a year. It sounds amazing, no matter what music you play. I often play it through a crappy little practice amp, and it can even make that sound good. The best thing about this guitar is the neck - it's perfectly shaped, fairly thin, and it allows you to play fast licks like mad. I've compared this guitar to guitars that cost over twice as much, and this Brian Moore blows them all away. The only thing I can possibly think that I wish i had that I don't with this guitar is the single coil in the middle like with the i91.
If recieved this guitar after doing research on the brian moore line, and thought that it would be a great deal, this turned out to be wrong thinking on my part.When I recieved the guitar, their were several problems, the first being that the pickup selector did not function, it would work the bridge pickup and the neck pickup, but when put in the middle position only the neck pickup would function. The other problem was that the setup on the guitar was terrible, the strings would buzz all over the fretboard, and because of this the sound was terrible.The guitar comes with a quality control checklist that shows that a person went over the guitar, but it looks like all they do is check off the proper boxes without ever really checking the guitar out.
I was looking for a guitar that would be excellent right out of the box and I found it with the i81. For the most part the guitar sounds great for most types of use and the pickups do a good job at picking up the higher notes. Really, the only thing I seem to have a problem with is the guitar seems to come out of tune easliy, espically if it's over night or longer between sessions.
