Picked up this little soloist the other week. Prepare for a cliché laden review!!! No seriously..quick review just...cool guitar. Build quality is spot on as you'd expect, fretwork is fantastic whatever type of super jumbo fretwire is on this I can't say for sure but I really like it. Neck carve is good, not super slim but shreddy enough. OFR holds tune really well and the Seymour's (JB and '59) in this case sound awesome, lots of nice crunch and sustain, quite bright too this being an alder bodied guitar. I've no idea how it cleans up...haven't really tried it...I really only play through ultra high gain anyway. You can't really go wrong with these USA Soloists....sure they can be pricey but I'd def grab anything at around the 1,000-1,200 mark again for sure (GBP). Sorry for the crappy pics. Snapped these last week and the sun is on vacation for at least another 3 months here. The finish is actually Black Forest Metallic...a really dark shade of green. As always thanks for looking!
