Loved it straight out the box. Very comfortable in the hands, it's just one of those guitars you can pick up and play. No messing about. Great performance and importantly a great sound.
More of an LP than I was lead to believe?? & P90s are sick!!!!!!! but doesn't go near my PRS SE 24 Std in playability.. but if ur after sum P90 growl this or the Yam Pac 311h will hav U covered
great wee guitar for the money ,real p-90 tone ,well made ,can't fault it
Poor man’s Gibson? No. This guitar punches above its weight.
