Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I have many guitars, fenders, gibsons. This is one sweet guitar. Just arrived today. These are not the same pickups as the other anniversary. They are to original specs, chimey, great clean spank in all positions. I'm sure pedals and gain will work very well. Thats all I have to say now. The neck and finish, nitro, great tone. Worth price? Probably.
