Greg Bennett Avion AV-3 Metallic Gold 2010
Greg Bennet Avion AV-3, gold top, made in Indonesia 2010. This is a Samick twist on the classic LP design, and it delivers the goods far beyond it's price point. The build and finish quality are great; it feels and looks very tidy. The tone is on the brighter side of classic LP creaminess; it's responsive and breathy with a thick growling midrange. The slightly unusual top horn and gold top work nicely together, this has a classic-but-different look. If you're after a no nonsense LP-style guitar with a proper set neck and tidy hardware for very little cash, this will do the trick!
