Price paid: $ 400

Purchased from: Michael Follett

Features: Made in 2010 in Muskegon, MI, United States by Michael Follett. The MF Siren was built for power and performance. The body is made of Mahogany. Neck pickups are Seymour Duncan Jazz masters and bridge pickups are Seymour Duncan Invaders. The body is a combination of an SG, strat, and RG 470 in one package with Mikes own touch. 24 frets, the fret board is just the neck from an Ibanez RG470. 3-way pickup selector. // 9

Sound: This guitar is meant to play metal with the invader pickups. The jazz neck pickups are nice and warm and great for classical and softer songs without distortion. The sound is warm and thick. Pickups can easily be switched out if you wanted to install new ones for your sound. Though the pickups compliment each other very well. // 8

Action, Fit & Finish: The action is wonderful for a custom, hand built guitar. Flaws in this model are 2 indents on the back where the router flew out of the wire cavity. 4 coats of polyurethane over mahogany looks beautiful. The body is hand sanded and rounded off where the guitar would rest on your body making it comfortable to play and great to stare at and admire. // 10

Reliability & Durability: This guitar is solid and will last many many years. The guitar is coated in several layers of poly so its set for life. The body was well crafted for endurance, sound, and comfort. This guitar would steal the show if used live. This guitar is very dependable. It needs stiffer tuning knobs to prevent it going out of tune, but other than that, its amazing. First of its kind, and the last. // 10

Overall Impression: I play primarily metal, rock, blues, and classical and this guitar is perfect for all those. I have been playing for 2 years and this is the best guitar I've ever play on in my opinion. This guitar looks sexy! So many people love this guitar, i've had someone offer me $1,000 for it. Problem is, only one exists. Wouldn't trade it for anything, its beautifully handcrafted. // 10
