Not trying to flame them or anything, I'm just puzzled as to why they are so incredibly successful. At first I thought it was just internet forum bandwagon hopping, but the two "metal" guys both bought petruccis as their main guitars when it came in the shop.
I've played three (as well as the lower end sterling), and while they are nice guitars, theres many things I can think of that I would prefer at the price. And from the ones I played there was nothing special tonewise about the guitar either. It has good playability but there are lots of Jacksons/ESP/Ibanez/etc.. at the same price point that are just as playable. I do get the appeal of the piezo on the higher end ones. Could you guys fill me in on whats so great about these guitars?
If it wasn't for the fugly headstock I'd buy one.
