Sound — 7
I haven't played it through an amp yet, so idk. (I just bought it yesterday, and the input jack is nonexistent I'm gonna change the pups though, so it'll sound good. I'll give a 7 for courtesy. It will suit my music style, which is everything. I'll be using a little ibby amp or a Vox something. With a Rocktron distortion, Boss blues driver, and a Zoom modulator. Its prolly got a bright sound, but idk yet. And its prolly best row low distortion stuff lol.
Overall Impression — 9
Ill play anything with a guitar, and I'm sure it'll do christian music well. I've been playing 2.5 years, and have 4 other guitars, including a Dean dime from hell, and a little Ibanez amp and like 3 pedals. I would totally buy it again, and pay up to $100 lol. I love the fact that it is white, ivbe wanted a white guitar since I started playing, and I absolutely love vws, I also like the preamp, although I have yet to use it lol. I wish it had more picks, and it would be cooler if the strap actually buckled like a seatbelt. But I found a godsend for 30$ and can't wait to get it fixed later this week:))) I also wished I could plug it in... Lol
Reliability & Durability — 8
I've been playing this guitar constantly the past day, and it hasn't went out of tune, no sharp frets or anything, nice and good for playing chunky chords, and pretty loud unplugged. Everything seems well above standard, and I would definately gig w/o a backup.
Action, Fit & Finish — 8
Since I got it from a buddy who rules at guitar, everything was set up perfectly. The only problem is he had to take out the input jack to put it in his washburn... _... But it would be perfect otherwise. Its action is perfect, its fit I guess, and the finish is again atah beautiful white.
Features — 10
This luscious guitar was made in 2006, as a promotion for volkswagon to sell more cars. It has a medium-c shaped 22 fret maple neck, with a rosewood fretboard. Its a solid top and has a beautiful pearloid pickguard. The finish is like a flat alpine white:) it is shaped like a lp junior. Its a string thru body. I think the pups are passive. Its got 3 knobs with a vw symbol on them, 1 volume, 1 tone, 1 idk. Its got a 3-way switch, and a built I'm preamp with pup boost, treble cut/boost, and a distortion switch. Its got 2 humbuckers. Idk bout the tunes, but they seem solid:) it came witha cool gig bag, a seatbelt style strap, picks, a cable, and the original amplifier was the car lol.
