New GFS Xavier guitar!


Recommended Posts

I've heard good things about them. Most of them will make a good base anyway, a few upgrades will turn them into pretty good guitars. And expect to do a bit of setup work when you get one. But hey, most guitars tend to need some setting up for your preferences anyway.

I love that. Except for the poor wood matching. In that case I'd be inclined to go with the cream model.

Cream and tortoise shell is one of my favourite combos. Though I'd be inclined to swap the pickguard out with a proper Fender one. The tortoise shell that Fender uses is gorgeous. Of course a proper Fender Jazzmaster has 3 rocker switches and the P90s mount a bit differently, so that could cause some problems. Maybe a custom made jobby would have to be ordered.

Without wanting to sound like some snob there is no comparing a Warmoth with GFS/Xaviere.

Rondo SX guitars have some problems, and even Kurt admits their quality control is not nearly as good as Agile. Here's a thread with a review of an SX I sent back, see post #54:

Personally, I'd wait and save up enough for a used MIM tele or strat.. You'll still want to swap out the PUPs, but you'll also be much more likely to be happy with it long term...

The Agiles are quite good, though. I love my AD-2300.

The SX's do have a kind of cheap vibe to them. I wouldn't buy one.

I bought a Xaviere XV-560. I seem to be real easy to sucker into believing hyped up reviews on guitars that are cheaper and superior over an Epiphone. My bad...

 

can you give more detail on whtat issues you had. I have been thinking of getting one too and really do not want to waste the time, money if they are not worth it. It also, does not help me when you send in a question to them and you get a snoby response. I like their pups, but boy what attitudes.
