Surf's up

This is a pretty good approximation of a Jazzmaster, complete with single coil hum (if you get too close to the amp or the flouro lights) Looks as good as it plays, and sounds as good as it looks. I modded mine with a B5 style tremolo and it really tops it off nicely. Handles all the subtle Hank Marvin style guitar licks with ease. The P90 style pups are solid sounding (not at all microphonic) even at high gain, although I guess it's not really designed for it. No unwanted feedback or squealing sounds. The bound neck makes for easy neck transitions, and it's easy to achieve a nice low action if you like a fast fretboard. All up I am quite happy with this one, I would definitely recommend it.

Big fan of it

By: Ben Knight on 24 July 2020
I'm gonna be real — I'm not an accomplished guitar player. I am not knowledgable about guitars at all. What makes one good or bad? I dunno. All I know is, I want one that feels good to play and sounds good for recording and jamming. I found that, and then some with the Grungemaster. It is a well-built piece that is a joy to play. The factory strings are pretty nice, there's no buzz, and overall it has a wonderfully dynamic tone that is perfect for the style of music I like to play. I am extremley happy with this, not just as a value guitar, but as a guitar in its own right.

Good Bones

Mine came from the bargain bin. It was returned with a 'faulty switch', which turned out to be a shorted pickup due to an overheated solder joint. It was easily fixed, but it shows quality control failures can happen. Most reviews are saying they play fine, so I guess I was unlucky because the buzz on mine couldn't be adjusted out. So I got to try my hand at fret levelling, which was kinda fun and made a big difference. One curious issue was the bridge pickup didn't align well with the strings. I moved it, which required a little filing on the pickguard. I can't say if it made a difference to the sound, but it looks better. I think I can see this in pictures online too, so I guess they're all like that. Bit of a clanger that, Artist (Harley Benton). Because it was heavily discounted, and because I'm a fiddler, I was happy enough to deal with these issues. But if I'd paid list price I might have been less happy. Now that it's sorted, I love it. This is my first guitar with P90s and I don't want to play my humbucker guitar anymore. Pros: Finish. Pickups. Tuning stability. Price. Cons: Fret buzz. Neck dive. Pickup misalignment. Patchy QC (side markers rough, bubbled chrome on one tuner, bad solder joint). No colour options. Conclusion: Looks and sounds great. Perfect for learning about guitar setup or a modding platform.

Wow, so happy with it

By: Peter on 29 May 2020
Just received delivery and loving it. Bit of fret buzz that I’ll adjust out once the guitar settles down but nothing to be concerned about. The sound of the pick ups are very punky. Absolute quality

Artist Grungemaster

Beautifully made and playing guitar, punches well above its price point in all areas. Does require a basic setup and better quality strings but thats it. The P90's shine here in all three positions, slightly noisy when overdriven but the trade off is a wonderful bluesy tone and classic rock crunch. Cleans up very well too for a rich, warm tone. in summing up a well built, nicely presented and very good quality guitar to own and play. Thanks for the fast turnover too guys, extremely happy with the purchase.
