Good value, but a few flaws
CharlieChugs 20.06.2021
With the price in mind, this guitar is a pretty good deal for what it is.

Pros:
+Stainless steel frets
+Grover locking tuners
+Hipshot style bridge
+"Spokewheel" dual action truss rod
+Good looking IMO.
+EMG pickups
Cons:
-Terrible setup out of the box (easily fixed, but still)
-Neck was severely backbowed(fixed with trussrod and patience)
-13-62 strings are way too heavy for B-standard-drop A IMO.(fine for drop G)
-Some finish flaws here and there.
-Nut was cut really badly (would not stay in tune, and uneven string height at 1st. fret)
-Bridge won't intonate in B-standard or drop A with my preferred strings 11-56 for 27"(bridge is mounted too far back, works ok-ish with 13-62, It's gets "Close enough" though with 11-56).
-Frets were gritty and dull(fixed by polishing)


All in all, not too bad for the price. I recommend D'addario 11-56 on this in B-standard, but I did have to make a shim under the nut, and cut the slots better. After some work, it's a nice guitar.

Beautiful tones.

Action is low and playability is very good. I don't like the finish...beware it is a matte and doesn't look as crisp as the internet photos portray. That's my only issue so far.

Super Preis- / Leistungsverhältnis
elfloko 04.10.2020
Wie schon erwähnt, wenn man ein optimal eingestelltes Modell erhaltet, steht dem Spielvergnügen nichts mehr im Wege ;)

Da ich derzeit verschiedene Drop-Tunings ausprobiere, teste ich auch immer wieder verschiedene Gitarren, jedoch mit dieser hatte ich bis Dato den besten Glücksgriff.

Optimal für Metal jedlicher Art. Die Pickups haben ordentlich Druck (für mich etwas zuviel) und setzen sich auch wunderbar durch. Das Tuning (bei mir derzeit Drop-B) ist sehr stabil. Der Hals ist sehr gut bespielbar. Die Farbe war für mich auch auschlaggebend, dies ist jedoch Geschmackssachen.

Im Großen und Ganzen eine wahnsinns Gitarre, die man sich früher gerne von anderen Marken (ESP LTD., PRS SE, usw) gewünscht hätte.

Superb guitar but...
Huuru 04.01.2021
This is my first baritone guitar. It is extremely nice built and sounds great. I love its sound. quality of work is excellent except one star off from quality while high e-string falls too easy from fret and neck when bending string. Neck is straight but somehow this happens and only with this guitar. It is bit annouying feature. Otherwise this ROCKS!
