"GET this GUITAR!"
This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.
the sound is great: havent had a chance to play it thru a high class amp in awhile, but it sounds great. i was worried about the stock pickups, but they've been good to me so far. ill probably switch em out for some EMG's if i keep playing this guitar.
the guitar is nice n' light, which is good bc im not the biggest person around. the shape is unique and I love it. problem is, it gets in the way a little when trying to play. It's not enough to really complaing about however. The 2 things that keep this from getting a 10 are the strings and the jumbo frets. It comes with those heavy strings, which are great for playing in C but for some people, especially people who want to play fast..they're too heavy. the jumbo frets also make it more difficult to play lightning fast up and down the neck. HOWEVER..... these 2 features may be great for other people. just because i didnt like them doesnt mean they'll annoy everyone.
oh yea..it has no tremolo arm. keep that in mind..for better or for worse.
Ease of Use:
very easy to use! a great beginner's guitar that an expert will appreciate also! ive let so many people play this guitar..people with all levels of expertise, all who had a good time rockin' out on it.
great quality..hasnt had any problems yet and ivehad it for a year.
im so glad i didnt buy that fender strat! this is a much better value.
The Wow Factor:
i think it looks good...i didnt buy it for its looks but in spite of its looks. the picture looked a little weird to me. but i was pleasantly surprised to open the box and find out it looks better in person. if i get another F series guitar, i want the see thru red finish. THATS a beauty.
i could probably keep playing this guitar for years. not that i wont go out and buy more guitars..but it's durable and im quite attached to it. im not sure whether i want to hotrod this one or buy another ESP guitar. ESP is a great brand and Im definitely an ESP girl for life =D
