I really enjoy playing this guitar, and finish is just awesome! The guitar came with really high action but a few adjustments and it came right back around. I didn't think I would like the Ceramic Plus humbuckers, however they are not as hot as I expected. Played through my Blackstar Core, I can dial in a whole host of tones from clean to raucus overdrive. I really bought this guitar not so much for the Slash signature model but the amber finish. The Slash was just a bonus. Great guitar for the price paid. Now the snakepit amp, well that's another story. Tons of hiss, and not much tone. Lives up to its name.
