I got this guitar because I really liked MCR especially the octave runs and rhythm chug especially in their first album. Everything was just so raw. I was hoping that I could get close to the same sound that Frank and Ray got and I did, I was super pleased with this guitar. It plays great and the tone selector switch is really sweet. The only thing is that the neck is very sticky sometimes and often my hand gets stuck but it just takes a little bit of getting used too. Other then that great guitar.
