That Horizon is super cool. Pink!!! When I think of a pink guitar, I always see the Vandenberg...





Love it.


Westone made some sweet 80's colors too, like on the Corsairs, Spectrums, and of course the Dimensions (not Dimension IV, but the 1989 Dimensions). I really want a Dimension!

And my GTX comes today... let's see how great or crappy she really is! At least I know she looks good... which reminds me of dating. Laughing

How is the GTX?

I've heard they are plywood guitars. Yet some plywood guitars can actually sound and play pretty good. I never had the courage to grab one, so you can be the pioneer to let us know if it is safe.

Alright, the straight news...

Unboxed it last night and began to jam on it a little. Only a little though, due to shipping damage. Mad The guitar was MINT, but during shipping the headstock point was busted off, and the fretboard was separated from the neck up to the 12th fret!!!! And the inlays are popping up. So... I contacted the seller to tell him. Really stinks.

Besides the damage, this thing surprisingly sounds pretty dang good for a cheapy!!! The humbucker has bite, it's a little meaty too. Sounds great under distortion. Really shocked me. The middle pick up is somewhat bright too, and even the neck is brighter than I expected. The neck pickup produces a good swollen sound in the magic area of the neck between the 12th and 16th frets like I like to hear. The singles do make noise if too close, so ya gotta be a good 6 ft. away from the amp if you're not using the humbucker. I like the individual toggles for the pickups, super cool and useful. I like the neck, very nice. It's a D shape, a shallow D. Super comfy. I think the frets are a medium jumbo. And it's SUPER light. The body is a little large, and the head is a little small considering, but I really like it. SUCKS that it's damaged like it is!!! Mad Mad Mad

The trem is weird. It could use a Floyd. Overall it's a cheapy that sounds and feels real nice! I would gig with it no problem.
