Product ExperienceI own it
Closest StoreKamloops, British Columbia
Combined with a Helix and plugged in with the VDI cable, this is the best music combination I've used. Ever. I love this guitar. The only issue I've had has been the pins in the saddles spinning loose, dropping the string height, but a bit of lock tight fixed it. The various guitar emulations sound good, the neck plays comfortably, and the balance is good. Build quality is good, the stock pickups sound decent, and the versatility of all the emulated guitars makes it a home run. Alternative tunings can even be done on the fly, adding to the fun.
