I'm getting used to the guitar now, but initially I was thinking this thing is a dud. It is amazing paired with a helix. Changing acoustic to electrick and other tricks mid song is remarkable. Out of the box, the setup was terrible very high action and the intonation was out. The bridge had no float.. I loosed the claw to get some float and did a full setup and it's very playable now.. the whammy is sloppy. I tried adding a fender whammy spring but it fell though the bridge entirely.. I'm going to try Plummer tape on the treads... the tuning is stable after a couple hours of acclimatizing to my house. The acoustics sound good though line 6 equipment , but not as gapped through a standard amp. The piezo pickups catch a lot more finger slide noise that magnets... the magnet pickups seem on par with my fender American standard, not as good as my fender elite... which seems about right.... I'd say the same about the tuners.. the bridge is 6 screw instead of 2 post.. a little disappointing at this price. The guitar is also very light making it seem a bit cheap at first but is great for my shoulder when I play 2 or more hours ... all in all ...good for the price but if the modelling works well I'll probably upgrade to something with more premium parts.
