hey,

Was ordering my little sister a 3/4 pink acoustic guitar since she want's to learn to play and my acoustic guitar is to big for her to physical play, so while i was looking for the guitars i saw a guitar i wanted to get a while back, its a black knight cp200 or something like that, its not a big brand name but ive had lower ranged stuff than this from the same company and the work has been top notch, anyway this model is the top of the range model and it only sells for £200, so i bought it along with the acoustic guitar.

so fastward too today and it arrived with the acoustic guitar.

the first thing i noticed was it was slightly diffrent from the product image i saw, its way better, you can see the mahogany wood grain underneath the coat and it looks extremley nice, it has gold coloured hardware and "supposedly" EMG pickups any way to check this?

anyway ive been playing with it today and its the nicest guitar ive played and ive tried some nice guitars at guitar shops. the neck is just right, the string hieght is perfect and it was tuned when i got it, drop D for some reason i think :\ but anyways it is the best buy ive ever made to be honest, im pretty impressed with it.

ill get the pictures up very soon!

anyone else had moments like this, were you buy something expecting average build qaulity and materials and end up getting something really nice!

Your not a hippie, just a ****ing moron.

I'm well intruiged mate. I've always got an eye out for off the radar brands. It gets a little boring always seeing the same guitars.

Can you link me to their website by any chance? I've seen some guitars of theirs I'd like to look into.

The photo's arent so good, sorry about that. but the build qaulity really is awesome for what i bought i think, the guitar feel's pretty heavy and solidly built, it sustains for a long time, pretty much the same amount of time as my thru neck base, which is a lot!

the sounds are so clear when i play it on super clear through my pandora px5d. i can upload some playing if you's want, although im not that good to be honest.

yea the guitar's pretty dusy and stuff, im going to clean it in a minute

Edit: it says x2 HZ high out put pickups on the model details now, it said EMG before!!!

sorry to say it I'm almost 100% sure they arn't EMG's but it sure looks nice. Sorta like the ESP LTD ecplipse series.

hope you have a great time playing it for years to come

Those can't be EMGs - at least, not active EMGs. It's impossible to remove the casing on the actives and have the pickup still work. I don't know much about non-active EMGs, unfortunately, but that is a damn sexy guitar. Kudos on your purchase and I hope your little sister will shr3d t3h br00t4lz in a few years' time.

Yea the probably arent, but it still does sound really nice and it play's really nice, i did buy a cheaper guitar from them not so long ago, i wouldnt really recomend the guitars under £150 though. stick with the black knight series if anyone buys from that shop and it should be fine

just made a little recording, its on my profile, its called;

"new guitar... for thread etc "


Ok im really not good at guitar, i havent been playing so long and i havent actaully played in a few weeks, plus my fingers are aching off playing the guitar so much last night haha. but anyways i dont think it sounds to bad, i really like it for the cleaner stuff, which is what i want to play

although i'd like to play some deep purple/ led zeppelin stuff later on, but yea, i have to get half decent first.

tell me what you's think of the sound etc etc.

thanks
