The quality is outstanding. It’s also unique in that it was made in Japan.

The SD pickups are very versatile in that you can get fender like tones but also have the bridge humbuckers for Rock/Metal/Fusion.

I would say in terms of quality, it’s comparable to my Ibanez Prestige.




Always wondered what the description was for an incomplete first bar.

This occurs at the start of the song.

The complete bar consists of the Anacrusis and final bar.

What is the point of it? It allows the song to be repeated consistently and without any awkwardness in the beat.
