Pros:Nice pickups,finish,and playability

Cons:tuners seemed a little cheap but always upgradeable

First of all I thought this guitar was going to be a cheap and dull version of the classic guild s100 or gibson sg, but i wasnt entirely correct. The pickups on this guitar are surprisingly powerful and have a high output, with great tone, good for any music style whether it be jazz, rock or metal. The playability is also very comfortable, the neck is pretty fast but yet thick. The tuners seemed a little on the cheap side but did'nt seem like it would be a problem in the future, you could always upgrade them. Other then that the body seems pretty strong and solid. I run the guitar through a crate half stack, and it sounds really nice. When its clean its full and thick with sound, and when the distortion kicks in it rocks, sounding good for lead or rhythm guitar.
For effects I mostly just use a boss flanger and delay, both which sound great and a digitech whammy pedal, sounds really nice! I would most likely gig with it, however I might like to upgrade the tuners and such before hand however with the money I spent on the guitar ($220 new), Tuners would be nothing to get for it. I would definatly use this in the studio, it has its unique sound and also is a great looking and pretty reliable guitar for live playing. I tune my guitar dadgbe, and it sounds really sweet, i would recommend this guitar for anyone looking for a fun guitar to play. I've put this guitar up against some other guitars in the $500 range and found this one to be no less in playability and sound. De Armond has definatly got something good going.
