poor workmanship, new gibson/epi's/china knockoffs are of better quality and relatively similarily priced Dont get sucked into nostalgia, this isn't anything special Amps: Laney 15/practice Orange/play __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Overall Impression — 2
play types: Alteranative Metal Blues Wish i would have researched similar new prior to purchasing, again this is a nostalgia buy, not great value. Buy new and get a warranty __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

heavy guitar, nice tone.. contrary to popular belief in electric it is not the wood that gives the tone.. at least not primarily. Strings and pickups make it or break it .. again no credit to guitar on this poorly balanced electronics are weak and a known issues in these models pick ups are great but they are not ESP/LTD, they are EMG so no kudo's to the guitar __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Action, Fit & Finish — 2
nice neck so so body cutting edge style comes down to personal preference on this one neck dive bombs uncomfortable sitting and almost unplayable standing up poor positioning of strap buttons __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
