This guitar is not designed to compete with a top line PRS, or John Petrucci's most expensive signature guitar. The Gladius does however outperforms Schecter, Telecaster and Epiphone.
My musical repertoire ranges from country and blues to metal and this guitar cleans up very well but definitely likes gettin' dirty as well. This guitar is really a unique piece.
The guitar is beautiful mahogany body with a maple top the neck feels smooth and fast. I play many different types of music mostly rock, jazz and metal but this fits it perfectly.
