I'll admit good quality makes a difference in acoustic guitars & has an effect on  solid electric if you play it unnplugged, but IMO with plugged in electrics it's down to quality electronics & in the Fingers! Good luck :)

That's right Dennis! "Ain't no mahogany-maple-cap, uber-expensive brazillian rosewood here!"

I wonder what would happen if I put some wire frets on next build... better yet - pine, larch or spruce. Something that's not considered as good wood for neck, cardboard body, some pickup and play some classic hard rock and put SG photos instead of live recording.

Now I have to troll someone :D

Hey, thanks for the demo.  I saw this in photos and wanted to hear it.  Wow!  Big sound and pretty good sound.  Playing well with the slide too.   Oh!  Plugged in sounds good!
