Initial impressions were good, the guitar in its gig bag was very well packaged and arrived in perfect condition, after a quick tune up, the sound was amazing, the action is nice and low and it is considerably easier to play than I was expecting, in fact it only highlights how poor the initial setup on my tele was.
Personally I have a long way to go but I definitely have an instrument that inspires me to pick it up anytime I have a few minutes to spare. If you are ever in need of a guitar and Richard stocks it then I would highly recommend Richard over some other online providers, you may not get it next day, but the wait is very much worth it.
Thanks Richard, i’m one very happy customer
There has been one problem that stopped my giving this 5 stars: the preamp battery had run flat when I received the guitar and the one I replaced it with drained overnight, so it has gone back to Richard’s workshop to be rectified. Annoying and inconvenient, obviously, but not a fault that could reasonably have been picked up during setup, and the process of getting it picked up by DPD was painless. This was just prior to Christmas, so I’ll update this review when I hear more/when I get the guitar back.
