Amazing

By Jerry325

from Ohio

This is easily the best guitar I've ever played, and you'll never beat the price. The pickups are really nice in this one, the 81 gives great distortion and the 60 gives great clean tones. I've played a Squier before this and theres so much difference between the two. I'd recomend this to a play who likes a versatile guitar and has been playing anywhere from six months up and is looking to upgrade.

Awesome guitar

By G3308win

from Willoughby, Ohio

Can't beat this guitar for the money. Played great out of the box, the only change I made was heavier gauge strings. Guitar is set up for hard rock/metal. Set neck is almost like a neck-thru, not a big block like a Gibson. The thing basically plays like glass. I prefer playing it over my Gibson Les Paul majority of the time. The quality on this guitar exceeds that of an entry level Gibson explorer, its very impressive. Also, the Treadplate finish is anodized aluminum, not plastic. I highly recommend this guitar to anyone seeking a gibson explorer, who is short on cash, and wants a high quality guitar.

good buy

Amazing guitar. Extremely high output. A few notes: it is slightly neck heavy. And where the screws held the diamond plate down the holes had really rough edge. Really rough on the arm.

Will my drool rust the Diamond Plate?

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Wow, thats all I have to say.Okay, so its not ALL I have to say... This guitar is AMAZING. I have played many others, but none really hold a candle to this beauty. I play this guitar every day, it is definitely my favorite guitar! It plays like butter, and sounds like gold. I can literally bend e string to E string, and I havn't changed the string height! BUTTER.The EMG pickups are great. They pick up pinch harmonics like none other, and sound good clean to boot! Now, I did have to change the pickup height to get a real pretty clean tone, but now it sounds comparable to many Les Pauls that I've played.Now many of you will probably think that I'm crazy but this is the BEST (bar none) blues guitar that I've ever played. With the proper amp setups you can use this thing for ANYTHING! very versatile. Obviously you would look pretty silly sitting on stage playing Paganini or Vivaldi but you can!I love this guitar plus I got mine as a scratch and dent for under $400!

Incredibly sexyness

By The Crow

I found this guitar at a local shop and my friend has the EX-50 model and thought I would have some fun with this one, see if the EMG's really made a difference. When I first picked up, I noticed that it was really light and the body fit comfortabley while stand or sitting. The fretboard was amazing, the action and intonnation were spot on, it was perfect. The strings that were on that specific guitar were a little dull, but a quick change to some D'Addario 11's would fix that completely. After futzing around with it, I finally just bought it; now this is where some of the bad things come in. The EMG's are amazing with overdriven riffs...but when you get to clean they just clash a lot, and it kind of makes it a little annoying. Also, the pick-up switching is very linear, high and low...that's basically it. The only other complaint is that sometimes it's hard to find the right position on the bridge to palm-mute with. Oh yea, this thing pulls out harmonic pinches like nothing, it's beautiful.

Great guitar i just got it

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

This is such a rad guitar that i just got about a month ago. Awesome sound out of the emg's and it's real loud, too. A very fast neck for nice playability and shredding. the only drawback of this guitar is it doesn't have a very great clean sound. this will be my metal guitar only. right now i'm looking into a gibson lp for a more versatile guitar. if you're looking for a real rad metal guitar look no further, it definitely pulls it off better than any other guitar i've played.

The best guitar ever

By boardboy7000-mfg.r

from La Crosse, WI

If you like metal you should buy this guitar. Tt has great sound for all types of metal even acustic. It is a little to heavy on the head but for the value it is worth the disadvantage.

This guitar is great, this is my back up guitar for my band. The pickups that comes with it are great, but I put the EMG-81 EMG-85 combo in it, it sounds great, fast playabilty. Very nice guitar.

Great Buy

By EvilAwaits

from Orange County California

I bought this guitar about a year ago and I will say it's a great buy and worth every penny. I own 2 other guitars that cost twice as much as this guitar and to tell you the truth I play this guitar more than any of them. My band has only had 15 shows but I have used this guitar for most of them. The sound you get out of those EMG's along with that big body it has is absolutely great.
