This guitar sounds phemnomanal! Thanks largly 2 the amazing pickups which are hand wired in Britain by Maverick's specialists. It's really made for rock but provides a decent blues tone if you back off your gain a little. The bridge pickup gives a searing lead tone and the neck a brilliant crunch perfect for metal or grunge. I play this through a Marshall AVT100 and they compliment each other perfectly. My one and only gripe with this guitar is the unresponsive tone control making it unsuitable for jazz or certain blusey tunes. Overall brilliant though.
Overall Impression — 10
I mostly play rock but dabble in blues and jazz as well the guitar is awesome for rock and metal but not so good for blues and jazz. It sounds amazin through my Marshall which is a solid state I haven't played it through a valve amp yet but I think it would be equally class. Fav feature has 2 be the awesome pickups on this my one niggle is the crappy tone control. This is a seriously good guitar and anyone looking for brilliant tone and looks on a budget cant go far wrong here.

This guitar was assembled in Korea but by the build quality you would never expect this, it truely is far better than you would expect from the price tag. Is has 24 frets, a AAA indian rosewood fingerboard which is pretty much unheard of on a guitar of this price. First thing that struck me was the simalarity to Ibanez guitars (Superstrat design, dual humbuckers) but I think this out performs some of even the prestige sereies Ibanez models.
