Sound Quality

I bought this guitar because I love the sound of Jack White and did not want to pay $2000 for an original that may fall apart at any given moment. I was hoping the reissue would deliver something close. I play hard blues influenced by Jimmy Page, Elmore James, Muddy Waters and Jack White. I use a 1962 Sivertone Model 1482 tube amp played through a Boss CS3, Boss BD2 and a Big Muff Pi. I play electric slide and I play this guitar in open D tuning. I can not believe the sound that rips out of this beast. I am in love with this guitar's sound. A true mistress, she has stolen my heart.

Reliability/Durability

Very solid feel and will withstand gigging. Hardware is solid. The finish is really nice and shiny and looks durable. Strap buttons are solid. I like to play in various tunings so this would be one of at least three other guitars for a set but I would feel confident and comfortable playing a gig with only this.

Price/Value


General Comments

Self taught. Playing everyday for 5 years now. I play 5 other guitars: a Yamaha dreadnought acoustic, a no name Dobro Resonator acoustic, 1959 Silvertone archtop acoustic/electric, 1964 Airline Res-O-Glass (3/4 Scale), Ibenez AS-73 hollowbody. If this guitar were stolen (God forbid) I would definitely replace it. I love this guitar's shape, feel and sound the most. I wanted an original but did not want to pay big bucks. I am glad I chose this reissue, it truly delivers the goods.
