I own two HHS Silo Specials, one with a maple board and one with rosewood. They each have their own mojo. I enjoy playing these guitars more than any I have ever owned, in my 40 years of playing. Great feeling necks and body contours. This is the Swiss Army Knife of guitars: fantastic versatility. Great tone and playability.
I've owned this guitar for about 6 months or so. Great instrument. I'm generally a Les Paul/Singlecut kind of guy, but this thing really punched me in the nose when I heard it. It's great.The singlecoils are great, very versitile and with basically zero noise. The humbucker is also an awesome pickup...It's no high gain pup, but it's chunky and fat. It handles higher gain settings well, but it's crunch is amazing.It will stay in tune forever, man. Haha, no problems with tuning stability as long as you try not to float the bridge. Speaking of which, the trem is really solid. Great for anything from full on dives to subtle vibrato.The neck? It's a Music Man for crying out loud. Can't beat it.My only issue with it is that the trem bar will swing all of the way around if I swing it. I know there's a way to change that though..I will be doing that. That's the only reason I gave it a 9.
I have been playing guitar now for 25 years. I have owned countless strats, Les Pauls. PRS, etc. I must say after owning all those guitars over the years, When I got my MM Silhoutte guitar, I was blown away, and sold them all. I mean,I know Gibson and Fender have been around for years, and are classics, and I respect that, but I have found out over the years, that they are not very consistant in the playability and feel. You have to really search for that one Strat, or Les Paul that feels right. The MM Silhoutte on the other hand feels right right out the box, and so do the others. MM EB is very consistant with their guitars. I have found that they all stay in tune, and the truss rod is so easy to get to and adjust, unlike the other guitars out there. after playing EB MM for a little while, I sold and traded some of my guitars in my collection. My Paul, and my strat are gone now, and I have never looked back. I just love the feel and response of the MM Silhoutte guitar. I love the short, easy to play scale of the MM also. It just feels right, and makes more sense, plus, its easier to pack, and take on a plane when you have to. Get this guitar, or any MM guitar, you wonr be dissapointed. You will find that your other guitar, (or guitars) will sit in ther cases.
this guitar is pure garbage. i bought it and in 1 month the humbucker lost its tone. this guitar sucks. save some money and buy an epiphone, their even better than this guitar.
I've owned this guitar for about two years now, and it is the best feeling guitar I have ever played. I have the sss version of it, so it plays like a strat, only better. The body is smaller and much lighter than a strat, also the the neck is incredible. This thing plays like a dream.
