Re: FAKE ALERT
I flagged it lastnight to el bay. I actually have one of these fakes, got it from GC about a year ago. They sure look cool hanging on the wall next to the billions of strats and lester paulsons. So I called them out on it they wanted 750, and I talked em down to 300. Swapped the gold knobs out for white strat knobs, and it looks great. Sounds pretty weak, and the craftmanship isn't very good. The neck is fatter than a wizard 2, and it's also narrower. Like 2 MM, that's why it doesn't play very good. The inlay work and fretjob is actually ok, but the edge of the frets taper in too far, so the e strings like to slip off the ends if you get just a little aggresive. But the trem is surprisingly solid, and comes back better than a lo POS. I mean TRS haha. Sometimes when you want something SO BAD like a 7wh, you'll make a sacrifice to have something as close as you can afford. Too bad sharks have to lie to people and prey on this weakness.
