This little vee needed a better bridge and some serious setup time and patience. After installing and custom fitting a Tonepros badass style bridge (with the same post spacing), i found that the posts were drilled slightly tighter center to center( not a huge deal). Also, the fretboard was too low in relation to the bridge, so further modification to the post screws and inserts was required(in order to lower the bridge a bit more) and then new strings were next. When i put some new 9s ( slinkys), one of the tuning heads stripped, not allowing any tension for the big E string. New tuning heads and new strings all setup( you have to tune this 2 steps higher to play it without buzzing), I then encountered a loose input jack wire, sometimes not allowing signal to pass through to the amp. Easy fix here, and a few small pickup height adjustments and neck truss rod adjustments, this cool little guitar rocks like Hell. the stock pickup sounds ok clean and nice and gritty with some distortion. In summary, this thing can be a fun playable electric if you have some patience, setup abilities and a couple extra bucks to invest in better parts. If you want to buy one as your child's first guitar, look elsewhere or plan on some upgrading before showing it to junior. I just bought it to sort of goof around with and use it on roadtrips.
This guitar is nothing but the best which I expect from Gibson products. The paint is beatiful, the feel is great, and you'll have to cradle it in your lap between your legs, but it's so light it's easy. See Marco's video. If you want a nice addition to your collection, and something truly unique other than a guitar shaped like a W, (Get it? Next step in Alphabet?), order this right now. Stop reading this and order. I'd give you my credit card, but the magnetic strip has been stripped down to the plastic by Amazon deals.
