      They're a fairly small scale builder, I'm sure it's pretty nice ..

        I played one a couple of years ago. They are similar in construction to the Agiles and Epiphones, only with the bling. If I remember correctly, they are built in Korea or China or somewhere in the Asian rim.....

          I know this isnt a gibson and is kinda off topic but I just read that Les Paul died.

              Meh. I bought one for about $400 a few years ago. It was sort of a thick strat with a Floyd Rose, spalted maple top, diamond inlays, and two humbuckers.

              My thoughts:

              1) I'm not a tone snob, but the pickups produced a sound similar to banging on the lid of a trash can. No definition, no clarity, no sweet spots. Just like banging, pounding metal.

              2) The Floyd Rose didn't come set up properly and it was before I knew about how to do that sort of thing, so the guitar WOULD NOT stay in tune.

              3) There were a lot of rough edges including the inlays on the neck. There were gaps of a mm or two on almost all the inlays where either the inlay was too small or the hole was too big. The pickup cavities didn't even look like they had been sanded.

              4) They have a generous return policy (20 or 30 days upon arrival), which I took advantage of. A month later I found a left Schecter Hellcat for the same price, and I still absolutely love that guitar.

              So my thoughts are as such: Their guitars look great from far away, but you'd better know how to work on your guitar, and even then you're going to be taking a chance. But hey, if you don't mind rolling the dice, by all means.
