Here's a guitar that's designed to appeal to the rocker in all of us without over the top cosmetics. The lines and colors combine to give a sense of understated speed and power which is appropriate on a guitar that sounds and plays like this. Although this Classic was conceived as a rock machine it sounds great for any style of music. Even unplugged single notes just hang. When plugged in sustained notes bloom with rich harmonic overtones. There’s as much bite as most Strat players could ask for but it’s tempered with a tonal weight that is rarely apparent in bolt-on guitars. Chords are still nice & articulate but FAT while bends are effortless. It has a nice smooth focused sound that shimmers in clean mode but really punches with some drive.

The SC1 pickups breathe single coil sparkle in a hum-canceling package while the H3 is a well-behaved high-output humbucker that still cleans up nicely and splits well. The neck is medium-slim and fast with a consistent feel from the first position all the way up and the fretwork is flawless. The contoured heel provides easy access to the upper register. The wedge neck pocket provides more contact area between neck & body and literally locks the neck in place. Fretwork is immaculate & the Buzz Feiten tuning system insures that even the tightest chord clusters play in tune all the way up the neck. Fit & finish are absolutely flawless. 7 pounds 4 ounces.
