Things You Will Get:

  • Electric Guitar
  • Case

Great playing guitar, wiring/Pots not so much.


Pick ups we're wired backwards from the factory...causing selector switch to work in reverse, and resulting in coil tap being on wrong pickup (should only be on neck pickup with this model). The initials "QA'd by SA" obviously didn't mean much, which incidentally is done in the USA. Pots are also scratchy, so will redo all when I have time. I would have returned but Sam Ash compensated me when I called to tell them about it...I asked for compensation instead of returning because aside from the wiring, the guitar feels and plays excellent. I have 3 Les Paul's and this one is every bit as playable, And in some respects better. The neck is superb, a little narrower than a Les Paul. The Pickups are exceptional, very articulate with a nice growl. Finish was flawless, and the case is sturdy. Love the guitar, or I would have returned it. I like re-wiring, I'll put better pots in and have a better guitar as a result. So to sum it up..fantastic playing guitar, Feels, looks, sounds as good as my Gibson's and PRS....quality PUPs. Wiring and pots not up to the quality of the rest of the guitar.
