Picked this up at GC the other day for $125. It'll need a replacement nut when I go to change strings, but other than that, it's mechanically sound. First thing I saw when I picked it up was that it was made in China, but I tried not to let that cloud my judgment.
Quite frankly, I'm disgusted. When I pick up a guitar that's made in China, I DEMAND a disastrous finish job, jagged and un-even frets, atrocious stock pickups, a neck that won't intonate properly, and I especially demand that they use a shitty piece of wood for the body, a shitty piece of rosewood for the fretboard, and a shitty plank of maple for the neck with no figure at all.
This guitar delivers on not a single one of these points, and disappoints on so many levels.
Yes, this will do nicely for my only fixed-bridge guitar, I think. the WG587 is supposed to be a competitor to the RG7321, and at least this one blows the RGs out of the water. I've played tons of the RGs (and I did own another wG587 earlier in life, with a Vintage trem and HSH] It must be the bridge, honestly. I just don't like the flat-mounted bridges at all. TOM or Floyd, it seems.
The stock bridge pickup is actually pretty good. hot and snarly. the neck pickup is also hot, but too muddy for anything but a clean channel. The body is supposed to be alder, but I wouldn't trust that statement any farther than I could throw it. Certainly heavy enough, though. I'll know the first time I remove the neck, I suppose. I love the neck profile, it's a shallow C like the original Wizards, but significantly thicker. Similar to my Agile's after I stripped the finish off. Rounder than Carvin's 7-string profile. Pairs well enough with my ESP and Agile to not really need any adjustment on my part.
It should be noted that these pictures were taken on a Droid Incredible, which as far as I'm concerned, is a tiny God in my pocket.
