Anyways the point of that rambling is that it really comes down to personal preference I think. Yeah, I have done the whole living at the music store thing. It's one of the things I'm starting to watch for. A good place to look is in the trem system which is a recurrent weakness we on Gi keep commenting on with guitars coming from the Far East, but there are no such issues here. .
And, anyway, why the two? Again, these are matters of personal opinion.

I don't know if any of the shops around you carry Michael Kelly, but that is something that you might want to look into. It's still nice though, but just another tiny way of keeping the cost affordable. Body Quality The body of the guitar is nothing out of the ordinary, with a rather known design being picked. The tuning machine of the guitar is very stable and designed to look beautiful.
Another big-seller is the Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 4X4. Bundle in that superb vibrato, the lively resonance and easy playability, and it has to be money well spent. I'm also happy to report that this guitar comes in at a shoulder friendly weight, meaning it naturally resonates well too. The mahogany back cannot make up for this little miscalculation and is unable to provide the typical tone warmth that we are accustomed to from mahogany. In 1986 we moved to a full product offering and 64-page catalog, which over the years has grown to 162 pages. However, there are a couple of apparently small differences which might swing your mind one way or another, beside the question of how many frets they have.
The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was the finish. It can also handle string bending pretty well. More and more rosewood fretboards on modern made guitars seem to be getting paler and a bit insipid looking, even on some very expensive big name instruments. No difference here, sustain for days, impeccable finish, and top notch build quality. So have any important sacrifices been made? Yes, they feel more generic, but we can't remember playing a bad one over the past 15 or so years. The mahogany neck and fret work is all very comfortable. The fact that the top of the guitar is made out of maple takes away the potential for flavor that was initially there, yet the tone does not suffer from this.
Eventually, he started hanging out at his local concert venues, befriending the roadies, and gaining backstage access to show his guitars to the stars of the day. The Voodoo Lab name is no stranger to the world of music. All of them have a reason to be doing so, and yet no all of them live up to the hype. Have you played them both yet? We need to talk about how, rightly or wrongly, we have certain long-held ideas about particular guitars or brands. This means the guitar loses a little bit of flavor from sound due to the maple top.
I didn't return it because I'm going to play it not put it in a display case! I would prefer a stoptail, but I I'm willing to live with the trem I'll block it off probably.

I would also like to mention the fact that the actual rosewood fretboard had a nice dark colour to it, which is good to see, because sourcing good rosewood is now becoming a quality issue for guitar makers. If we were forced to describe a difference we'd have to go along with the manufacturer which describes the 22 as having a more 'vintage voice'. The guitar is able to produce great sound whether you are looking for hard rock or jazz. Realistically, however, those high-end models are out of reach to the vast majority. Equally many players love the extra range and upper fret access that a 24 fret guitar can offer, so it really is a matter of personal taste.
It is a very versatile sound that is clear, strong and most importantly, fun. Beyond this, though, I would say you have to try them and see which you like more. Nice guitar and when you look at the street price, it's stunningly good value for money. The body of the guitar is built out of two woods. It won't twang like a good Strat or Tele, but it will bark and roar like a good Les Paul.
Aside from its very slightly 'long neck' strapped-on feel, compared with a Strat, for example, the 24-fret Custom remains one of the most comfortable feel-at-home guitars money can buy. This Korean-built mass of maple, mahogany and rosewood is a classy-looking guitar. And I know they are consistently like this and that wasn't sent a hand-picked tri-colour sample. In a nutshell, this is going to be the guitar that I play more than any of the 8 I own. The neck of the guitar is made of maple.
