|[Submit a Review]|
$500 USD (used)
Description: Electric hollowbody. Made in Korea. Mahogany ""335"" style body (slightly smaller), 2 humbucker pickups
Comments: Love the tone. Gets both the 335 sound and sort of a Rickenbacher tone when both pickups employed
Comments: Beautiful finish. Neck feels great. I had a hard time buying a ""samick"" so I played a lot of 335s and Heritage guitars but kept coming back to this one. The smaller body design was exactly what I was looking for. There is a slight buzz on the low E string is I hit it hard...but I think that is because it is set up low.
Pros: This guitar is exactly what I was looking for. I bought it new at the local music store - it hard been a salesman's demo so I got it for half of list - $500 vs $1500 - $2500 for comparable Gibsons and Heritage guitars.
Cons: I still feel a slight uneasiness about the Samick brand. But honestly, nothing about this guitar seems ""cheap"" to me. I love it.
