Great FEATURES, not necessarily great guitar.


This guitar seems like it would be great. It's easy to play. It's a bit neck-heavy, which is annoying, but not enough to be a deal breaker. The deal breaking occurs with the overall flatness/dullness of the vibe. I know, it's incredibly intangible, and as a writer and an informed guitar owner and player I should be able to pinpoint exactly what it is about the guitar I don't like, but I can't. It just does not do it for me. This is one of the most blah instruments I've ever picked up. It's not bad, but it's not good either.


It sounded ok, I guess. I've played much better sounding PRS guitars, and much better sounding hollowbodies. This guitar was really uninspiring to me. The piezo in my Parker and my buddy's Schecter sounded better than this one.


Have you ever heard the phrase "the whole is greater than the sum of its parts"? That doesn't apply here. In fact, just the opposite. The features are fantastic, and the guitar should by all accounts be incredible. But I just thought it was pretty dull overall. I don't know if I played a bad example of one - everything checked out just fine - but I was not impressed. I love hollowbody guitars, and I love a lot of PRS models, and I love piezo pickups, but this one just did not do it for me. It was set up well and everything... Who knows. I just think it's not a great buy for the money.
