Customer Reviews
Very good guitar and value for money
Posted on 13/02/2016 by Tom Blues Very powerful, excellent for lead in rock and blues but not very subtle on softer and accompanyment parts. Great feel, look and very light and easy on your your body. Deserve serious consideration for its price. 8.5/10
