    Anyone have any experience with this guitar? Just played it and was pretty blown away with the quality and playability for a Chinese guitar.

    I liked the "small" feel. I could swear it was a small scale guitar. But nope.

    Expect to have to replace the bridge after a couple of years. Other than that it looks pretty schwank.

      I've been looking at the hardtail myself. I'm sure they are great bang for buck. This is the one I have been looking at...


      One MIA Fender Strat, one Gibson Les Paul, one Martin Acoustic, what more do you need?

        These guitars definitely look better in person.

          Yeah.. I figured it was a cheap Floyd copy. I am so used to Ibanez trems... the floyds feel a bit blocky. But I love the shape of the body and feel of the neck.

          I wish you could get a less "Frilly" version. Less binding, less inlays.

            I'm gonna go out on a limb and state that if you use your trem a "normal" amount it should be good for a long time. Only problem I have heard about with the trem is the intonation set screws my strip. Be careful. Stew mac sells replacements just in case.

              I'm just looking for a comfortable guitar. I can always replace teh trem. No big deal.
              I like the small body, and the unfinished mahogany neck that is on the skinny/small side.

              Going to check it out again this weekend and give it a serious look.

                i played one of the single cut versions and it was surprisingly awesome, and they do look a lot better in person.

                  I like the body shape. Hearing that the neck is on the skinny/small side puts it in the "not on my must try" list. Still attractive though. I am really liking bigger fatter necks lately. Go figure, with my wookie mitts.

                    But I WANT a skinny/small neck soo..

                    It's not like a WIZARD neck. Or OLD wizard neck. The new wizards are bleh.

                    Very comfortable compound radius neck.
