I had purchased a DeArmond SG5 in 97 for under $175 thought ok for that price at the time. It spent almost a decade in the closet. Life slowed down for me enough to take some lessons.

The genuine American made Silvertron pickups produce a bright and clear sound - somewhere between a single-coil and a humbucker pickup: good crunchy rhythm and warm lead.
The neck is very comfortable, and the champagne sparkle finish really looks great in the stage-light.
Unfortunately, DeArmond no… Read Full Review
