Well, some of you might've followed some of my inquires about used guitars on the forums. I've been wanting to get a second guitar for ages now. Although I love my Fender Strat, I really wanted something with a floating trem and humbuckers for a change. The past few weeks I've been searching everywhere for a nice used guitar, but that started to worry me. I was not willing to pay for something that I would not test first, and so decided to go with a brand new one.
So today I decided I had to get a new guitar. I went to the music store with my mind set on a RG, but I saw they had a S670FM there so I asked to try it and immediately fell in love with the guitar. The strings were new, and it was well setup. I tried a couple of RGs as well, but neither made the same impact as the S. I probably should've tried a S470 because it would be cheaper, but I didn't want another black guitar, and the finish of the s670 actually surprised me a lot. Really smooth and it isn't sticky as another satin finish I played before. So anyway, I brought it home, changed strings to D'addarios, did a bit of setup work on it and it is now even better
And btw, I am really pleased with the overall construction for an Indonesian guitar. My only gripe is the fret ends, but that can be sorted later. The rest is really well done. If anyone is on the fence about the S series after it moved out of Korea, I'd say it's a non-issue.
I'll post some more tomorrow morning with daylight
