    February issue of Premier Guitar doing review of 408 Maple Top

    I am a subscriber to Premier Guitar magazine, and today in my YouTube subs was this new video for the February issue.
    They do a review on the new 408 Maple Top, just the guitar that I have had my eye on now for a few months.

    Don't let the moron who reviewed the guitar turn you off. Phase 3 tuners not solid??? Those PG guys need to find someone competent to do their gear reviews.

    Yankee, I just read the article yesternight before bed in the new issue of Premier Guitar, and you are right.
    The guy really liked the guitar and all, but his only negative comment was on the Phase III tuners.
    I wonder why he did not like them?

    Whole article is online here.

    Pros:
    Balanced, beautifully-voiced pickups with wide array of tones and no-volume-loss coil-tapping. Fast action. Gorgeous figured maple top and V12 finish.

    Cons:
    Tuning could be more solid, especially on treble strings.
