Now, I've had this guitar for around 2 years now, I kept it simple with the original pickups V7 S1 and V8 I think they were. Couple of months later the tone sounded a bit too thin for me (I prefer something thicker like Malmsteen and loads of attack like Paul Gilbert) So I swapped both V7 and V8 pick ups for a Dimarzio Tone Zone in the bridge and Dimarzio Paf Pro in the neck. Now it sounds amazing, Especially the variety of sounds you can get with it! I play alot of Metal and some clean, all sounds good! It is not Bright but perfect :)
Amp I use is a Vox AD50VT with a TS9 going through it :)
I use 9 to 42 strings.

I set the guitar up myself so...I'm not sure about factory set-up
Finish is perfect no blemishes apart from the ones I made haha.
|Reliability & Durability ||
I would gig with this guitar without a back up! I have done once and it was perfect , stayed in tune very well :)
Been using it for about 2 years, no problems :)
