This is a unique, one off that some customer modified quite heavily, so this review might not be the best review out there for this particular guitar. Keep that in mind when reading this as it's almost a different instrument. The guitar features a mahogany body with a maple top, mahogany neck with a rosewood fretboard, 22 frets, trapezoid inlays, pickguard, binding, a special tune-o-matic to floyd style bridge, two humbuckers, two volumes, two tones and a three way switch.

UTILIZATION

This one had all kinds of mods done to it by the previous owner. The first thing you notice is that this had a very rare and hard to find floyd rose that fits on the actual hard tail studs. These devices have lots of tiny springs in them that help them function the way they do, and it actually works pretty decently. The guitar didn't have a locking nut, so it wasn't quite as stable as a normal one would be, but it still worked out. The neck was shaved, it had a few extra holes for different series/parallel configurations, and it also had a small mid boost installed in it.

SOUNDS

This guitar was killer, but it had aftermarket pickups installed in it. The guitar had a JB and a Jazz installed. The JB in the bridge is awesome for everything from blues to metal. It can really do every genre, it's that versatile. The mahogany body helps keep the JB sounding fat, and the bass on it is perfect enough to where it's not super tight to where it sounds sterile but it's also not super loose to where it sounds flabby. The Jazz in the neck is like a cleaner, more polite 59. It has a bit more treble and sounds a bit more linear, but it delivers some awesome clean and lead tones. I find that it's a bit clearer sounding than the 59.

OVERALL OPINION

I actually happen to like this guitar quite a bit as it's closer to the guitars I normally tend to play. The modifications were really stuff that I looked for in a guitar, and I happened to own this for quite awhile before selling it to someone else. I hope the other person likes it as much as I did as I really miss this guitar and almost want it back...
