Carbon Fiber X-PLORER

By Hayden the great

from Cochrane AB

I think this guitar is amazing. It feels great, sounds great and the carbon fiber pickguard looks better in real life instead of in the picture with black and gray semi checkered carbon fiber.



By CampKillDavy

from westland, MI

First of all, the case it came with is gorgeous. White interior combination lock, roomy accessory compartment, durable.Since its a one piece the sustain is unbelivable, it sounded as if I had the perfect amount of reverb, playing acoustically. Action, great. flawless beautiful finish, a kind of flat black, chrome hardwear looks great. Intonation set up near perfectly, tun-o-matic living up to its name. Plays as sleak as it looks, the carbon-fiber pick guard looks even better in person. The guitars input really holds onto your guitar cable, I could go on and on. Wonderful warm tone, pick-ups were set nicely (ZERO buzz). Fluorescent lights practically have no effect surprisingly, but I've only had it for a short period so I can't relate to the long term problems that I may or may not have. But a great guitar, HIGHLY recommended. I feel like I should thank somebody? Well, "Thank you."
