The action came high, also I took it to a local guitar tech, to set it up. It plays like a $1,000 guitar now, you can't go wrong with the EMG'S too. I put Sprezel locking tuners on it, I just prefer them( easy string changes. Guitar is still under the 45 day warranty too. So it just goes to show you, after a good setup, I have faith this guitar will last a at least my life time!
