This sky-blue Sensei is everything a korina-bodied guitar should be: snappy, punchy, resonant, and lively. The bridge pickup can certainly do the classic aggressive rock tones with great aplomb, but it also rewards players after more subtlety. There are lots of wailing lead tones hiding in the bridge position, and rolling the bass contour knob all the way off gives you a fantastic "woman tone." The neck pickup is beefy yet articulate, with a surprising amount of top-end brilliance. Anyone seeking a versatile, balanced double-cut that will sound good in any context will love this Sensei!
