Confess

This is a great read. Rob Halford's own, inimtiable voice narrates you through the story of his life from childhood to the present right up to COVID.  Growing up in the Midlands town of Wallsall (North of Birmingham, East of Wolverhampton).

From memories of 68 when the wizard shook the world
Metal came from foundries where the midlands sound unfurled
The Bull Ring was a lonely place of concrete towers and steel
The coal mines and the industries were all I had to feel. — from Made in Hell

PRS S2 Custom 22

PRS cut a ton of corners on the S2 line... But the corners cut are easily replaced, such as pickups, trem, tuners, and pots. Some of the construction methods are different, but the feel of the guitar is exactly what you would expect from all USA made Paul Reed Smith guitars. I only felt the need to replace the pickups. It is a good-sounding guitar.

I think the quality of the build is better than equally priced offerings from other US companies, such as Gibson, who put great parts on their guitars, but they often don't play as well as their higher range guitars.

Schecter Damien Platinum 7NT

Let me say this, I returned the guitar, but with much inner debate, I kept it all the way to the end of the 45 day return policy. I found it difficult to switch from the 7 back to a 6, but not really the other way around. I toyed with the idea of exchanging it for the 6 string version, but opted for an Ibanez Prestige, but only because I have a 6 string with active pickups, and without cheesy bat inlays, and don't need another. Trust me when I say it wasn't really a trade up, just extra money spent.

Burny RLG-50 Super Grade Les Paul

If you have the cash for a Gibson, buy the damn Gibson. As bad as the internet hype is about these Japanese copies, so is the stuff about how bad Gibsons are. Just stick to a normal model, not some exclusive limited edition bullshit. I finally just bought a regular, old Traditional, and it kills. But if you can’t, and want something that has the “Standard” fixings, that is better than an Epiphone, these Burny copies are solid.
