Hey thanks man, the SX's I have all played ok when they arrived but the ones I have bought have been with the intention to up grade and mod. After upgrades and mods I would put them up aganist any 1000 dollar guitar. All mine have been built exceptionally well. Kurt has a really good return policy so if your not satisfied you can return it with no problem. I have been lucky and have been happy with all my purchases.
thats my favorite way of doing it. Buy a mid priced guitar and upgrade the components. IMO, I think you end up getting close to high end guitars without the high end price tag. I've been an Agile 3100 slim from Rondo for a while. Drop in some Bareknuckle pickups, get a good setup done and rock n roll!
