It's a very good guitar. What kind of amp are you looking at?
theyre good for your second or third (with a little upgrading) guitar.

I've got the vintage with emgs and its pretty good.

cracked the neck the other day....
I play a lot of stuff, zeppelin, acdc, sabbath, along those lines... im not very good really but i the songs I write I would say are pretty good so I do need a worthy guitar to keep up, lol
230 is a decent price for it right? they normally go for 400? I don't know why its only the black one that's so cheap though
