Production quality's obvsly poor, they left spikes sticking out round the strap knob on the upper bout.

Urgh, that fucking headstock. Those pickups. The square-ended fretboard that has just been glued on without being shaped to match the neck. Jesus, it's like a decent body with a load of shit slapped on it.

I am a total convert to the hex bigass polepieces after using a DUNCAN PERFORMER DETONATOR. The neck is totally whack Ibanezesque trash, but the rest is probably salvageable.

And its has a push-pull coilsplit. That's pretty rad for a cheap guitar.

The headstock looks PRS style only without the cut out at the top that makes it pointy.

I know that your avatar is not a badger, but it does remind me of the headstock pic. It is kind of a cool looking logo, but they don't seem make other models.

It's like they started with a decent if not derivative idea and then made increasingly poor choices.

Somehow I missed this because I thought they were only on Amazon, but they have a non-reverse model:

The body looks shrunken in comparison to a Jaguar or Jagmaster.
