- Brilliant so far
Great sound out of the box. Looks phenomenal, plays easily. Electronics are easy to master, mic blend offers a range of sounds.
CONS: Action slightly too low, have read about this complaint in a number of articles so i don't believe it's unique to myself! Whole guitar quite bright. I imagine as the rosewood ages, a bit more warmth will shine through. I would possibly suggest if you were using this as a main gigging guitar, consider a sound hole humbucker to double as your lower end power.
All in all, fantastic buy, and fantastic value.
