Value for money:
A must have for any Bri fanAlex Mane on 13.12.2016
- classic Queen sound
- outstanding looks
- zero fret, which greatly improves intonation on the first three frets.
- wilkinson tremolo, which is probably one of the best on the market.
- individual on/off switches for each pickup + phase switches. This system is much more flexible than the standard 5-position switch - it allows you to choose any combination of pickups and an overall of 21 different tones!
- tremolo arm falls out of place. Can be easily fixed, though - there's a screw adjustment, just look at the back of the bridge.
Overall: it's a very well thought-out guitar, that would please not only Brian May fans but anyone who is looking for a classic-sounding guitar with great flexibility and infinite playability.
