A modern descendent of the classic Artist, it has the crucial ingredients to produce searing modern lead and crunchy rhythm while dispensing with bells and whistles to keep the price down. The clean mahogany body houses 2 high-output humbuckers and 3-way switching. The one-piece maple neck is thick and fast.

This is one of the few guitars that has the unique and quite useful drop-D tuner. The humbuckers have great output and the neck is SMOOTH - not to mention it's a gorgeous guitar.
Instant dropping and returning, even during songs with only a minimal of adjusting out of the box... This was the best investment I've made yet... best of all, it sounds great and is a breeze to play...
This guitar has an unbelievably crunchy tone... Great for rhythm but the pickups aren't near hot enough for soloing. The strap buttons aren't set right though, so the neck hangs. You'll have to get them reset to balance the guitar properly.
This guitar is excellent. When from stock, you have to adjust the D-tuner to work properly, but once you do, it's perfect, everytime. If you have been trying to figure out why that feature didn't work, viola. For sound, there is no better guitar, especially at this price. I've got a Rg 7620, and I recently bought this guitar, and I have to say, it's hard to decide which one is my favorite. With one, you have the range, tonality, and look to make a guitarist. With the other, you have the power, the versatility, and so much tone you have to cut through it with a hack-saw, not to mention durability to work into anything you want. This guitar is definitely not for shredding, but you can pull some sweet sounds out of this ax if you work it right. I have to say, this guitar is the choice guitar for me and the stage.
Great guitar... The drop D switch doesn't get much use but the quality is great. The only thing that should be upgraded is the tuning heads. The pick ups sound awesome. Not to mention it looks really cool.
I bought this guitar around two years ago as my first electric guitar. I had previously owned an acoustic and bass guitars. When I was choosing a guitar, two things were on my mind: price and quality. I didn't want some piece of crap guitar and I didn't want to spend a whole lot on it, being a broke high school student. So, I found this, for about $$$ at a local music shop. When I bought it, I marveled at the D-tuner. Don't. It really isn't very useful. Honestly, when you "D-tune" with it, it is never exactly in D-tuning, so you have to adjust your tuning by hand anyhow, so really, there isn't much point to it.On to the guitar itself. Double humbuckers means you can get some crunchy, heavy riffs out of it, but you probably won't want to tune it lower than drop C. Otherwise, like most guitars, it gets very buzzy. If you want to do a new metal/death metal gig, go for a seven string. If, however, you want to do punk, and don't want a cliched Strat, this guitar could be your best friend. Nice mids and highs mean that you could ostensibly throw in ska riffs and have them come out sounding alright, and with the graphite finish, it looks damn good.Let's see, build quality. I don't think anything taxes a guitar more than being in a punk band. My guitar has been dropped, hit with mic stands, people, amps and all sorts of other crap, and refuses to die. The finish has taken a beating, but honestly, it still looks pretty good, especially for the amount of abuse it's taken. Only complaints are the tendency for the washer holding the cable plug (next to tone controls) to come lose. Not a big deal, just worth mentioning.I've used this guitar for punk, metal, and recently Perfect Circle-esque alternative and it's faithfully kept up. A solid buy, as long as you're not buying it for the D-tuner gimmick.
Awesome playability, very low action, good sound. I love it.
If you play anything from punk to alternative to hardcore to metal, this is a great guitar. It has everything you need, plus a drop-D tuner (allowing a quick shift from standard E to drop-D) The only problem I've found is that as a result of the short upper arm, when playing standing with a strap, the head will fall and point towards the ground if you don't hold the neck. Besides that, I love this guitar, and the price is right as well.
Good guitar for anyone, but it is too neck heavy - to let go of it to sing, you have to be quick to grab it for the next chord.
