Thanks, Mr. R! I was just playing it today, it really is a lot of fun. Despite the chambered body, it really does sustain well, esp if you use these 'Burns-Style' pickups on their double-coil setting. Plus, you can really tell the difference between an Ebony fretboard and a rosewood or maple one... very smooth.misterrogers @ Apr 15 2016, 09:53 PM wrote:With those frets now you know how he played those line parts in queen 2 real up high..

For those of you with no use for any notes above the tenth fret you will notice this neck has 2 full octaves... the switches are for operating the three pickups independently, and for switching them from single- to double-coil, in any combination. There's no f-hole, but the body is chambered, so it can definitely get the semi-hollow tones as well as Rock You.
I deny all accusations.
Nice axe. I was going to get a new PRS a couple years ago, but held off. Now I want a Fender vintage reissue strat or tele.Conway @ Mar 11 2014, 09:48 AM wrote: Paul Reed Smith P24 Trem.

Looks and sounds incredible.
I have an '86 Japanese Squier Strat . . . the thing is dynamite, my go to guitar ever since those days.marvell78 @ Apr 19 2016, 07:10 AM wrote: A Made in Japan Fender Stratocaster, late 80s.
Was never that keen on Stratocaster sound. But this guitar is one of the best i have ever played. The bite from the pick ups is amazing. It has a 60s neck (slim enough) that is perfect for me.
Running it through the Modulation setting on a Boss RV 5 sounds great.
At the moment I have it running through a Forest Green Compressor, an Xotic RC Booster and the RV5. I cant see myself changing this setting for some time. Love the sound.
Would be very tempted to seek out a Jap Telecaster

Not at all tempted but I do wonder if they are any good.
Usually about US$200-300.
I don't know anything about those but the look of it is perfect.Divvey @ May 20 2016, 01:51 AM wrote: I ended up buying a Hofner semi.
It's not fantastic but having never played an original I can't compare. But for the cash... Even the custom case is tremendous.
my guitar supplier in China is selling these as Peavey travel guitars.About 200 USD.

It's a different make from mine (also made in China); the soundhole's in the upper bout instead of in the middle. You should buy and let us know how it is.flickeringlexicon @ Sep 27 2016, 11:34 AM wrote:Ah, the "v-glorify respectable shop," very good.
