I finally got a chance to play this guitar last night during band practice and was pretty happy overall. It’s very easy to play and the lightest guitar that I own now. The clean tone is just amazing, especially the bridge pickup by itself. It’s very close to the sound I hear in my head. The single coil certainly doesn’t have as munch punch and power as a Humbucker in the bridge so I have to compensate some by turning the volume on my amp up and dialing in the volume on my pedals. I’ll spend some time over the weekend getting to know the guitar better, but so far I’m enjoying it. I love having the pickup selectors up top and the layout makes it nearly impossible to accidentally flip a switch while playing which is awesome! I did notice that with distortion pedals it doesn’t sound as thick, rich and full, but once I play around with the pedals I’m sure I can get the sound I’m looking for. I still have my Seymour Duncan JB SH-4 Humbucker so I always have the option of installing that in the bridge position of this guitar. I’m not in a hurry to do that at the moment though and want to see what this instrument is capable of as is. It’s the only electric I own right now with a single coil pickup in the bridge. If you’ve read this far, thank you! I’ll upload a video over the weekend of the guitar so you can hear it.
