Customer Reviews

  • Author: Steve McCarthy
    I wanted to wait a couple of months before writing a review so that I could get past the initial euphoria of owning a dream (come true) guitar. The problem is that I love this guitar more now than when I got it back in July.

    I have to confess that I originally bought this guitar based on looks and that it was a twelve fret slotted headstock which are my favorites. It was the best looking guitar I had ever seen.

    I'll cut to the chase. When I got the guitar the workmanship was flawless and it played almost like it had been broken in already. The sound is unbelievably well balanced from low/mid/high with good volume for a small body.

    Now that it is broken in it is unbelievably smooth playing (almost effortless) and sounding in addition to outstanding looks. I highly recommend this guitar. When John McQuarrie and this guitar get the recognition it deserves there will be quite a waiting list.
