    A while ago I bought a TAM10 and I've loved this guitar a lot since then!
    For some reason people have mixed opinions about this model but since I own one I can give you my honest opinion.

    I think this is a great guitar for the price.
    It sounds great and plays very smoothly.
    It did need some proper strings and a set-up when I picked it up from the box but I'm used to that when getting a new guitar.

    Anyway, so I just uploaded a new song that I just finished today.
    All the guitar parts were recorded with the TAM10.
    I only used the bridge and neck humbuckers in this case.

    I have it tuned to F# and I use Elixir strings.
    These are the gauges I use:
    standard set of 9's to .42 with a .56 for the low B and a .70 bass string for the F#.

    Hear how the guitar sounds here:

    If you have any questions about this guitar just let me know!

    You have one too? That's great!
    What strings do you use?
    How do you have it set up, with low action?

    Oh, the TAM10.

    I tried one at a local guitar shop and couldn't get along with it too well, but this sounds pretty fantastic. Nice work

    Nice playing! Cool riffs and some unique lines in there.

    Currently using a 9-80 set on my RG8, might go back to a 76 and lighten my attack. I tune standard or drop E. That 70 sounds good for you. I wonder what a 72 guitar string would sound like on that track.

    I'd love to try it but I refuse to use any string brand other than Elixir and I did try a .75 but that one was too thick.
    Oh well, if I want low end clarity I'll just use my M80M :)

    nice man. You definitely helped me make my decision on Ownhammer IRs! When is the new pack coming out and is everything new in it? I already own all the other high gain IRs from them.

    how is the tuning stability/intonation on the guitar? I have an 852 Prestige with an 80 for my Low low E and am having some difficulty with keeping it in tune. It goes pretty sharp with the initial attack and is really sensitive with how hard I fret the notes.

    It's definitely not bad.
    Compared to my M80M it's less tight so that one has less of those 'issues' but I don't mind it on the 27 inch.
    The tuning stability is fine too.
    Just as long as you stretch the strings nicely.
