First the cons: When buying guitars from Amazon, be advised that they don't do setups. My guitar arrived Unplayable.
Two or three youtube "how to adjust tone pros bridge", How to adjust truss rod", and "how to adjust intonation" videos,
or a 3-5 hours later, I was up and running. I learned a lot, but not by choice. Buyer beware.

Now the Pros:The guitar looks beautiful. This is not your average lower mid price range guitar. Quality workmanship, flawless finish, no cut-corners anywhere. Even the backplate screws were set nicely(no stripped holes) and were effortless to tighten/loosen, making the plate a breeze to remove. Electronics were clean and organized. Fret job, neck, and fret board are all flawless showing quality workmanship.

Playability: Plays a lot like my Alex Lifeson LP($4,000.00). Adjustable action allows you to set it low with no buzz, dead notes or fretting out. This guitar is effortless to play. The fretboard isn't a soft rosewood.
It has a bouncier feel, like ebony feels to me. I love it. The guitar plays as well as my high end
PRS(ebony fretboard) and Gibson LP. I'm not saying the Bolero is a better guitar. That would be a ridiculous claim, but it does have the feel and playability of these high end models.

Sound: The pickups are on the high end tone wise, but they still carry a tight base freq. They sit well in a mix and compliment the bass very well. I wasn't thrilled with the coil split sounds in clean, but the bridge pickup splits nicely in crunch modes(much to my surprise). Not a huge fan of this option on any guitar. The Bolero does not sound like a LP and the split coil selections do not sound like Strat/Tele single coils. Neck pickup works great, but I haven't worked it into my amp-fx settings.

I have two DBZ guitars and this white one is one of them. I didn't have to do anything to the guitar out of the box. The action is perfect, no fret buzz and no cosmetic defects.

The pickups are amazing. I was worried I was going to have to replace them, but to my amazement, the sound quality was exactly what I was looking for. The cleans are crisp and the distortions are superb. There is a clarity that comes out, nothing is muddy at all.

This isn't going to give you a les paul sound, so if you are looking for a Les Paul sound out of this thing, get a Les Paul (I have one of those too)

Not to discourage anyone from getting one of these, just saying, les paul sound you will not get.

I wasn't looking for a Les Paul sound. What I have is a great guitar that gives me the perfect combination of everything. This is coiled tapped so you can split the Humbucker.

I play everything from Hendrix to Slipknot and this guitar gives me all. It doesn't hurt to be running through a voodoo modded dual rectifier either.

DBZ is a much better guitar this his old Dean line. Trust me, I have Dean's too and hands down, these DBZ guitars run them in the dirt. My other DBZ guitar : Cavallo and it plays just are nice as the Bolero Series.

I did play an American made DBZ Bolero and could only tell minor differences and their cost: 3500, these Korean made Bolero's : 600.00 if you know where to shop beyond eleven just need to sign up as a member. I only plug them because they are the cheapest on the net for these DBZ guitars.
