Re: Greg Bennett Guitars
Yeah, a mate of mine has the Ultramatic 1 modelhttp://www.gregbennettguitars.com/um1.html
Considering the price it's a good guitar. To my eye it's well finished and the hardware gets the job done. Out of the box intonation, tuning, action etc were quite good quality... much better than some similar priced Epi's, Squire and Ibanez Gio.
Live he plays through an old Laney 100w and it rips. The pickups don't seem to have any major feedback problems and deliver a good sound for a punk band.
IMO it would be a great guitar for an advanced learner and not a bad back up.
I have a Samick little guitar (like EVH little Les Paul) and it's a great sounding guitar. Good build, good pick ups, great toy.
Hope this helps.
