I've had this guitar for around a year. I bought it for the price, floyd rose, and awesome looks. Let's start with the looks, these pictures do not do it justice at all. it's a great glossy finish with some snazzy flame maple. I constantly get coments on it's good looks. The only thing I din't like was the cream knob, I switched it to a black one. The pickups are great stock, a bit of hum, but if you know what you're doing with the amp and volume knob you can make that go away. it sounds great for classic rock such as the who and the beatles, and for metal and hard rock. the best word to describe the tone is "powerfull". straight out of the box the setup is fine, the inotation was a bit out of wack but that's an easy fix. the tremelo is great, although you might want to remove some of the springs to make it more responsive.but that's all personal preference. I have been pretty heavy handed while handling this guitar, it gets knocked around quite a bit but it's holding up fine. the flame maple top is a bit fragile, mine is chipping in some spots, but oh well, you can't have everything. I have gigged with it at a large venue, I ran it through a Fender deluxe tube amp miked through the PA, and it sounded great. I got lots of compliments about the tone of the guitar from random members of the audience. I replaced the neck on mine with a custom EVH neck and it's excelent, smooth and fast. so all in all, no matter what level a player you are, buy this, you will most definetly not regret it.

Well, it seemed like a good one to buy. I wanted a Floyd Rose, and although I hadn't actually played this exact guitar, I had played the non-Floyd version and it played pretty well. So it had playability and some nice humbuckers.... so I bought it. Biggest blunder ever. Here's the deal: if you've never played a Floyd Rose before, you should know that setup is completely different than a fixed bridge guitar. I did my research on that and learned how to do it, and really it isn't that difficult, you just have to know what you're doing or you'll screw it all up. Tuning this sucker is a completely different story. It's terrible way to die. Way more trouble than it's worth. The action can't be very low at all, because then certain notes will not fret, and all you will hear is this icky, muted buzz. And the frets themselves protrude slightly at the edges of the neck and are sharp enough to cut up your hand after playing for only a short time. The plate on the port where you plug in your cable came loose very quickly. Now, most of these problems could have easily been taken care of in the factory, or I could spend a lot of extra money and all these stupid problems fixed in the shop. Forget it. This guitar is like a problematic old car that just wants to die. I'm returning it for my money back, which brings up another point. In all honesty, as far as music equipment goes, you really truly do get what you pay for. My other guitar is a Strat, and it's very reliable, as most Fender products tend to be. Therefore, I'm getting another Fender instead.

I would buy 2 or 3 more if I could.

By Free2shred00

from Houston

I have the older model with a liscensed Floyd Rose. It took me over a year of extreme tremolo abuse (like lifting the entire guitar by the bar over my head type stuff) before I ever popped a string.The neck pick up is amazing. I honestly hated neck pick ups until this guitar. I was never happy with their tone, but the neck pick up on this guitar is insane. I would clone it if I could.The bridge pick up left a little to be desired, so I replaced it with a DiMarzio Evo. It was easily affordable with the money I spent.The neck and fretboard are amazing. Both super comfortable and super clean. Upper register fret access can be kind of tricky, just depends on what fret/string. For a bolt-on though, it is very good. Sturdy wiring and good design and manufacturing on the trim and tuners.One MAJOR thing that needs to be addressed - the guitar in the pic is ugly. The guitar in my hands, is gorgeous. Nice flamed top finish and the color is more of a natural finish than a yellow one. Believe me, I was relieved when I saw it out of the box.I really wish I could buy 2 or 3 more of this guitar, but sadly I don't think I will be able to since OLP is out of business. This guitar IS my go to instrument for recording, practicing and for live play. It outshines my Jackson guitar in every way and that guitar was way more expensive. If you can ever find this guitar, buy it on the spot. If you find more than one, please let me know.

Outplays my 1,300.00 guitar.

By Bigkid4ever

from OH

See all my reviews

Believe the hype this guitar is hands down the best playing guitar I have ever played. I always wanted a Axis but this version has nixed that urge. The reason being this tremlo allows me to pull up if I want and the Ernie Ball will only allow to push the bar down. The sound is great and I will never replace these pickups. The neck is butter and the frets are perfect. The guitar came set up almost perfect and within five minutes it was perfect. My only complaint is that there is some dirt that is under the finish. But for this price and the way this guitar plays THERE WAS NO WAY I WAS SENDING IT BACK. Don't even think about it just get this guitar, because it is a steal!!!

OLP MM1 Floyd Rose

By RMS-oINsc

from Massachusetts

I have had the real one. I have many vintage guitars and high quality guitars. I am impressed with the sound of the guitar, the finish was nice. Out of the box it was not playable and the locking nut for the 5th and 6th string was stripped. The action was horrible. There were raised frets etc. The guitar required that I seat about 6 frets and do a complete fret dress and lower the nut 1/64" or slightly better. This was due to the fretboard itself not being flat.I gig with this guitar along side my real 65 strat and setzer g6120ssu. I have played so many great olp mm1s and recommend them. Mine was a lemon but it's fixed now. This guitar fits me well and I will probably buy another 1 or 2. I was impressed with it once I got it set up. It isn't identical to the real axis but I like it. I have to say again that I was unlucky. I have set up many that were superb! I have a cheap Petrucci model that is great. I would have just exchanged it but it was out of stock and I had waited 2 months to get it. I probably should have taken it up with OLP but I didn't because I could repair it myself. I did not buy it from this site but I will buy my next one from them for sure.

Unbelievable Guitar For The Price!!

By Mr. Brownsound-uVjgP

from 5150 Mean Street

I bought the OLP MM 1 with the Floyd Rose because I have been a long time Van Halen fan and always wanted an axe like Edward's, but was not really wild about forking out over $1000 to get one. Then I found this. WOW! was my wait worth it. The guitar is even more beautiful in person than the pictures show. The action is FAST, and the sound is KILLER. I have gotten so many compilments on this guitar (even from my local tech) that I've lost track. The only thing that I'm going to modify to this one is the addition of a D-Tuna. If I had to find a bad thing to say, it would be that it came a little dirty. (Nothing a cleaner and cloth didn't take care of.) It even arrived IN TUNE!! Just a great guitar and every bit as nice as the Axis for the price. I would buy another one.

GREAT guitar for the price!

By CurtGranger

Ask me a question

I bought this guitar as a gigging substitute for some of my "pricier" guitars. The guitar arrived with the tremolo set up well and the guitar just slightly out of tune, but playable right out of the box. I did some minor setup work; removed the middle tremolo spring, dropped the tuning to half step, lowered the action slightly, (all personal preferences) and tightened the truss rod about a half turn, which was easy to do with the included tool and easy access to the truss rod. The guitar now plays slightly better than my 2000 Les Paul Standard.The quality of the guitar for its price is unmatched. The finish is very pretty (gloss natural). The neck has a great feel, sort of like a thinner Strat neck) and the tone is more than I expected from stock pickups and a basswood body. The guitar stays in tune even with aggressive tremolo use. The model I received also has a string tee. I swapped the strap pins with Jim Dunlop strap locks and the JD screws even fit well .You probably won't find a better guitar with a locking tremolo in this price range. Best money I've spent on new gear in a long time.

GREAT BANG FOR THE BUCK

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I was not sure about this guitar but after giving it a chance I'm glad I bought one. My Fernandes monterey elite has been getting lonely since I play this guitar now. It plays great and the action fairs well. The pickups are ok, but I was shocked on how good they sound right out of the box. I found the neck pickup has a great warm tone to it. The floyd system is great. Not the real deal but it works great and handles well under stressful dips and pulls. Stays in tune as well.Overall this guitar is great for the $$$ OLP has done it right.

Not to bad out of the box. The pickups leave a bit to be desired. For the money, it is a good buy.

The Gonga Buy

By Le Owl

from Old Pueblo - AZ

I have aquired several guitars over the years. My collection includes vintage and newer G&L's, Strats and Schecters. I picked up a standard MM1 to use as a utility guitar and was surprised by its performance. I recently purchased the version with the licensed Floyd Rose to nail some of the 80's metal style and I have not put it down since. The guitar arrived with the tremelo set up perfectly. A quick unlocking of the nut for tuning and it has been good to go. The quality of the guitar for its price is unmatched. Superb neck and the tone is more than I expected. You won't find a better guitar with a locking tremelo in this price range. No regrets with this purchase!

cyclopese's comment

By Cyclopese

from Bham, Al

I owned the OLP MM1 and very pleased. Sure, the pickups could be the gainier; the top tail-piece stud shifted forward after vigilent use, but this has not diminished the guitar's perfomance; and, the only other flaw (for appreciation value)it's not USA made. Simply, overall, it's an asset and the best value for the money.
