    Anyone ever messed around with these? They have some pretty looking ones. I especially like the 62/69 series.

    Good question. Can't seem to find anything on the website. The description says there's a push/pull to split the coil on the bridge rail. Maybe they moved this to the two-way.

    You have to do a little clicking around their website, but their guitars are made in Vietnam. They're good looking guitars but I'd like to see inside one to see what they're made of.
    Bought a beautiful red Gianinni Craviola made in China. Tried to adjust/raise the screw heads on the humbucker pickups and they weren't even threaded; just pushed up and down. Held in place by the wax potting. I took it apart and the magnet was a rubberized, stick it on your refrigerator type magnet. Changed out the pickups to some made in USA Seymour Duncan's. Matter of fact, I changed all the electronic components. Now it plays as good as it looks.
    I learned a lesson. Beauty is only skin deep on many Asian guitars.

    Yeah. Might be worth it if I gut it. The body and neck do look nice. I guess you never know until you're holding it.

    The guitars look nice however I bought one and then wanted to sell it 5 months later. They have VERY LITTLE resale value!!!!
