JS2000- my thoughts after a few days
This guitar is really something special, something I am definitely not used to, but wonderful nevertheless.
The neck is totally different than my RG which is totally different than my SC. I guess I have a well-rounded, albeit tiny collection.
I am addicted to the high-pass filter, because it makes the guitar sound so cool and different than any other guitar.
The body is extremely lightweight, yet the guitar isn't off-balanced.
It seems to sound it's best through Marshall type amp settings, sounding warm and full through JCM800 presets.
It almost sounded out of its element when playing with a Recto setting.
By the way I'm playing the guitar into the computer via my POD.
The feel and tuning stability of the FX Edge, combined with fixed bridge properties really is a cool thing, once you get passed the weirdness of a "permanently blocked" Edge.
I wish they'd do more guitars like this, or give the option to lock Edges, ala Parker Fly.
