Nice review. The guitar sure is great, but a bit too round-shaped for my taste.

I payed a little under 2,000 USD. I think it came to about 2,000 after taxes.

Yeah I own several guitars. This one, a JEM77B, Jackson, Fender Strat, ESP Kirk Hammett sig, Epi LP, 2 Alvarez acoustics, 1 6-string and 1 12-string, etc. biggrin.gif

I didn't think I would be able to make a good review since i've never done it before.

Thanks, I suggest saving up and getting one. It's definitely worth it!

Buy one! tongue.gif

There is also the cheaper version of it. It's made by OLP which is owned by Ernie Ball I believe. Here it is.

I know one of the instructors who used to work here had one. Sean Conklin had one, and I think it still sounded brilliant. I'd get one if I didn't have the money for the real thing. But I collect guitars and anything else that goes with it, so i'm all about getting the real versions of everything.

I hope to get a Les Paul or a PRS soon, and maybe even a Carvin.

Thanks for a good review! A really cool guitar that one and 2000 USD is not that bad compared to whast it cost here. Many different models it seem but anywhere between 3500-4000 USD.

What does all the knobs and switches do?

If I were to venture a guess, the top switch is likely the pickup selector, the other silver switch is the piezo/magentic switch, and the three regular knobs are volume for magnetic pups, tone for magnetics, and volume for piezo. At least, thats the basic setup on my piezo nitefly (except the pickup selecter is like a strat one).

[edit] or does this one even have piezo? I remember reading something recently about a guitar with some.. maybe this wasnt the thread biggrin.gif

Well I don't have the one with the switch on the top so I don't know what that is for, most likely for more pickup options. But the other switch is for switching between pickups. The knobs are for tone and volume.

1850-1900 usd,circa.
To explain sentence before,I wanted to say that every guitar is different,
even if it has almost the same specs like some other,
you just can't make 2 identical guitars. smile.gif

Yeah I figured that's what you meant. In other words every guitar even if it's the same model still has it's own "personality". Is that a good way to explain it?
