My local store has one in stock and I got to play around with it. What a fun guitar! Since I’m in the market for a guitar, this happens to be one on my list. It’s one of the most ergonomic guitars that i’ve picked up and super-light. The controls are cool too with a great pickup selector switch.
Compared to my JP XI, I think it plays a bit easier as the frets seem to be taller. They look like jumbos to me whereas the XI is somewhere from medium to short.
My hesitation to get it comes from the fact that I’m a little scared of the electronics. It has the Game Changer system and looks like a nightmare inside. Anything goes wrong, it’s gonna need to be sent back to EBMM. Also, the model they have is Polar Noir (Black). Kinda meh. There seems to be a minor blemish on the arm rest too. Looks like it may have bumped into another guitar which left a spot about the size of a quarter that’s shiny on the matte finish and has a really tiny indentation.
