After seeing awesome reviews I decided to try this guitar, as I am a huge fan of Tom Delonge's touch on his Gibson model. Seeing how affordable this is compared to buying a Gibson, I figured Id give it a shot. When it came the paint felt cheap and the guitar did not even play when I plugged in. Wanting this guitar so badly because of the awesome pickup (and blink-182 tonality), I returned the defective guitar and ordered a new one. The new one barely worked!! The jack was loose so the sound would cut out through the amp. If you're serious about a semi hollow guitar spend a little more money customizing or buying a better quality guitar.
