    Has anybody played or heard about these guitars?
    Because they are giving me a boner.

    I don't like the inline headstock for the acoustic. And that SG is hot.

    Ebay feedback looks great...99.8% and all pretty much positive reviews of the guitars.

    What makes me scratch my head about these "under the radar" guitar companies is that they all offer Strat and Superstrat clones, LP-SG clones, PRS 's etc etc, y'know, the well known models, they're this close to getting a Cease and Desist from any of these companies, so i say, why not go all the way and make models of other well known popular styles? I appreciate all of these brands that offer affordable insert body shape here-style guitars but almost all of them use the same models!

    A personal favorite of mine is the Explorer, yet 99% of these affordable brands ive come across dont make one (and those that do are not that great). It's not like all of a sudden they say "there are too many Exporers in the market" Im sure im not alone in thinking this way.
    Im sure we all have personal favorites that these brands dont make, that are quite popular but they just dont make 'em. I wonder why that is? Limitations from the overseas factories? I dont think so, we've all seen those chinese counterfeits that cosmetically are spot on. And again, it cant be because they're afraid they'll get sued.

    Mini rant over :p

    I saw that when I was trying to expel my sg gas - also the Davison line deserves a second look, too.

    I ended up going with a used epi instead though. I look forward to your account of what you got
