    This is one of my absolute favorite guitars of all time. For the price this is a fantastic semi-hollow guitar. When I first got it I thought the setup and feeling to the neck was perfect. The only thing I found a little disappointing was the pickups were not producing the powerful tone I wanted so I put in some seymour duncan 59′s and it became the talk of the town, everyone who got to play my guitar wanted to buy it off me.

    I’m a blues guitar player who has played many a guitar. I picked this one up and fell in love with it. The white finish is great and it sounds amazing. The major issue i have with it is it staying in tune. It wouldn’t stay in tune at all when first brought home. Had to bring it to my local shop and have the nut shaved down, and other fine adjustments. It now stays in tune for a couple songs but is very frustrating. I use medium strings, and don’t wail on the thing, or bend the strings up 2 steps. Even playing chords it goes out of tune almost a half step. Mostly on the g, b and e. If anyone else has any ideas how to fix this, or has had the same issues and it is fixed, PLEASE contact me and tell me what to do. I love this guitar, it’s just frustrating having to tune every 11 minutes.
