Wtf is up with First Act?

Not talking about the pieces of crap at Toys R Us but like the legit guitars they sell. They apparently have custom shop AND regular half decent quality guitars. Mastodon uses them, the Cancer Bats use them and apparently other people too. Anybody had experience with them? Thanks

They're alright. Their 'custom shop' isn't a true custom shop as you'd expect from other brands - they won't make absolutely anything, like ESP or Fender's Custom Shops would, for example - but the qualiity is there. They have the advantage of not being well-known as a higher-end manufacturer, so a good quality guitar from them can cost a lot less than the same thing from other brands. If you don't care about the name on the headstock then they're as good as any.

Should rename their custom shop from 'first act' to 'headline act'.

Where does one go to order these guitars? Custom and non custom because I can't seem to find anything on their website

I've seen those $400 mid-range First Act guitars before, and I dunno. Custom shop FA I understand, because custom shop anything can be good if the craftsmanship is there, materials are good, etc. But a mid-range guitar? I feel like I'm better off going with somebody like LTD, Ibanez or even Agile. They have the track record of pretty decent work on mid-range guitars backing them up.

The regular stuff is sold in stores- look around on the site, and you'll see where.

Clicking on the picture for the custom shop takes you to their Facebook site. I'm not on Facebook, but there may be contact info there. If not, email them at support@firstact.com or call them at +1-888-551-1115.
