This guitar will not dissapoint. It initially grabbed my attention visually (I have the black version). This is one classy looking guitar. Sustain and playability is excellent. Output from EMG pickup's work well w/ my Mesa tube amp.Finish is impeccable. Only drawback is with active pickups, you cant get that "weak, out of phase tone" but thats ok for me. I just cant decide wether to get another one in black or the other finish, for a backup.
Before I even begin, let me just say that this the guitar I use the most, out of all my other guitars. Whether I am playing a gig or recording, this is the one I predominately use. I have other guitars but nothing compares to this. I got the black version with custom EMG81 and EMG85 pickups. These things were created to blow people's minds. From playing rhythm to lead, there's nothing I can't do with this guitar. I find myself playing lead more often than rhythm and the pickups definitely do their job. From the Pixies to the Strokes, I can get any tone I want; provided I have the correct setup and gear.As I have read before, the first thing I noticed when I took this out of the box was the finish. It seems to always have a shine and the abalone binding is splendid. I have never played a top-loading guitar; meaning a guitar where strings are placed on the body and not through the body. This guitar is a string-through, just the way I like it because I believe that it adds tone and quality to the sound. There is a TonePros locking bridge and this has always worked for me. I can instantly go from high action to low action without any trouble at all.One of the most important features, according to me, are the Sperzel locking tuners. These things are lifesavers. They always keep your guitar in tune, no matter how hard you play or how far you bend your strings! I don?t have exceptionally large fingers but the extra-jumbo frets are excellent for soloing and playing complicated riffs.It?s simple yet still intricate. Instead of having random knobs all over the place, there are just two: a volume and tone knob. The toggle can switch three ways: the bridge, middle, or neck. I personally find it more feasible when there are only three switches as opposed to five or even, seven! For the sound of a Les Paul with the body of a Strat, this guitar is perfect and the extra dough you spend on it is worth it, trust me.
Iv'e only been playing for five years. But a very continual five years. And with that I had 12 years of piano and 10 years of violin under my belt. So I caught on quick to guitar and a style close to that of buckethead. This is a great guitar whether playing live or recording. Clean, or max distortion this thing will rock. I play through the VOX Tonelab SE. And though the recorder I use is far from professional level the sound quality is awesome. I recomend this to any musician of any style. Smooth action, excellent sustain, and great overal playability.
I have the H-1000 in the sunburst. It has great tone, amazing sustain and stays in tune- and an added benefit is that it is much lighter that you would expect. It also looks great.The locking tuners and string-through body are great features. This guitar is definitely worth the money. You can't go wrong.
The H-1000 and it's brother the MH-1000 with Duncans are just what they say. The perfect LP sound with Strat comfort, only lighter. That is amazing coming from a guitar maker of mostly metal guitars. Great for ANY style. If you need more versatality, get an H-400 with a 5-way switch. It costs less, and you sacrifice some quality, but I think a strat should sound like a strat and humbuckers sound like humbuckers. This guitar sounds great through any amp. This is my #1 and I own lots of Strats and Gibsons. Must Buy.
Well the people are right when they say it's beautiful. I bought a red LTD and of so shiny! The sound is great and the fact that it has a humbucker is really awesome. The tone is pretty cool, too.
This guitar is amazingly light. It looks soooo great. Sounds better. It has a perfect PRS type balance in the pickups. Every note is heard and is the same volume. I play heavy and it sounds really thick.
I played this guitar in a marshall mg 30 watt and it sounded really really good the feel feels just like a stratocaster but it has the power of a les paul this guitar is perfect for someone who wants the power of a les paul but likes the more stratocaster shape.
Amber finish is spectacular with unique binding, lots of detail. Set neck is smooth, extra jumbo frets, great sound out of the JB/59 set. Very bright tone out of 59, metal players would probably prefer the EMG version. I use it for Alice in Chains Eb stuff, handles it all very well. String-through design really does improve sustain. Lots of guitar for the money. Sperzel tuners work well, guitar holds tune better than my Les.
The H-1000 has unbelievable tone and sustain for a guitar of so little weight. The only thing more beautiful than its appearance is its sound!
