One has come up as potential trade. What can you tell about this guitar?
I have one and i can tell you that it's a pretty sweet guitar.
I did however make a pickguard for it, and swapped out the stock neck pickup for a sd phatcat. The stock one did not cut trough in a band situation and i like the looks of a pickguard better.
Build quality is great. German engineering what can i say?
Nice and light, resonant with plenty of sustain.
I especially like the natural fast feel of the neck (oiled ovangkol)
Fretwork is impeccable. (they all get plekked at the factory)
High quality sturdy hardware.
Sonicaly, it can cover a lot of ground but for my taste the guitar has a too "polished" vibe going for itself.
The same vibe like you'd have with a PRS guitar. Some like it some don't.
Keep in mind that reselling seems to be a tricky one.
Not a big brand name and mine's a lefty.
I'm trying to sell mine for the reasons mentioned above with little succes.
Bottom line is that it's a versatile quality instrument, and if you have the opportunity to try it you should.
It could be the right one for you.
Thanks for the input. So you're selling because it sounds too polished to you?
Yeah, don't have any other way to describe how i feel about the guitar...
It plays effortlessly, but i just don't seem to connect with it like i do with my other guitars.
That and the fact that i prefer my Tele and strat for the more vintage appointments that they have... (smaller frets, rounder radius, etc. )
colours and tastes....
Alright, thanks again.
