Thumbs up OLP Petrucci MM4





Pricing:
I paid $500CAD at a local music shop

Pros
-Small
-Lightweight
-Relatively cheap
-Fast neck
-BRILLIANT ERGO CUTS
-Truss rod wheel
-Sleek hot looks
-Officially Liscensed by Ernie Ball Guitars
-24 frets
-Comes with semi-hardshell gig bag, strap, cable, poster, picks, poster, tools, and replacement spring
-Tremelo system
-Locking 4+2 Tuners

Cons
-Three-way switch is in a really bad spot as it gets knocked down while strumming
-Whammy bar causes guitar to go slightly out of tune from time to time
-Frets may be too small for some
-Pickups are junk
-Only one tone control

The guitar features:
*Basswood Body
*Maple neck w/rosewood fretboard
*25.5" scale w/24 jumbo frets


I've had this guitar for a week and am loving it. It's actually caused me to start playing like I used to. The armrest is great and has even improved my tecnique and mechanics. Let me say though, this is no beginner guitar. It's really a finesse machine as the frets are very small, Especially around the 22-24 fret range. I've never played a guitar this great for the price. It comes with tons of cool stuff. This guitar would make a great addition to a Petrucci fans or any rock players guitarpetoire.

This the first time you played on a 24 fret neck, cause when I first play my Shecter, I thought the last few frets were really small as well. Now They see normal now.

Congrats on the purchase! Looks like an awesome guitar... I don't suppose there's a hardtail version?
