Wesley M06 Reviews 5

I bought this as my first guitar from the 'Wesley Instruments' website for 140.00. This included postal costs, and arrived very prompty, and in perfect condition. I had been getting into 80's rock and metal music for about a year and I really wanted to learn how to become a great solo improvisor. I think I probably underestimated the work I'd have to put in, but its been fun trying, even if I've been failing! I'd been saving up for a guitar for a couple of months from my job as a caravan cleaner. Horrible job but it was worth it!

There are a number of Great things about this guitar! Firstly the 'Floyd Rose Tremelo'. It makes the guitar so much better not having to put so much force into using it. It's got a Humbucker and 2 Single Coil pickups. I mainly use the humbucker because thats where my hand seems to end up! 24 Frets on this machine, that enables me to reach the really high notes! Perfect for solo-ing! It feels great to hold and to play, and the neck is so easy to play on. I know I don't have much experience of many guitars, but my friends have also said that you fingers slide along it with ease. This guitar sounds great too, clean or distorted. You can get a real 'chompy' effect with the humbucking pick-up.

Dislikes... Erm, on mine, the top strap-holder bit (no idea what you'd call it, just the bit thats keeps the strap attached) comes loose every now and again, but that may just be on my guitar. I could only get this guitar in black, which is a bit of a shame because I would've liked to see it in a number of different colours before making my choice. That's basically the only bad points about this guitar.

Quality is the only word needed to describe it! 'Black Hawk' (my personal name for the guitar) is black, extremely well finished. The Floyd Rose Tremelo works a treat and the sound is dazzling! A superbly crafted peice of kit!

Unfortunately I don't think Wesley makes these any more, as i can't find them on the website. However one day you may find one that comes up on ebay or in your local paper. If so, trust me, buy this guitar, you wont regret it! A seriously great buy!
