This guitar has really great build quality, and some sweet sounding pickups. The S-1 switching isnt used to often in my case, but it can be great to kick on for a lead sound, especially since theres an increase in volume. Overall its a great guitar that costs less than half what the 52 RI does, and it does a good job of capturing that 52 vibe.
I absolutely love this guitar! The pickups in it sound amazing, it has a nice classic look and it has a couple extra features that are really nice too. The only thing I don't like about it are the classic style machine heads which are a massive pain in the ass to work with but if you can get past that this is not just a great guitar for the price it's just great in general.
