Title: W166 PRO
Post by: watersbluebird on January 24, 2010, 10:13:51 AM
Hi.  I have just bought a used (hardly though, the guy had a hand accident and never played it ) W166 Pro on fleabay for $240.  I have never tried one of these guitars, but liked the list of features it has etc.  Terrible, I know, but I have just sold my MG-34 after 17 years of use.  Do you think I have done the right thing lol?  I have read a few threads about the VCC and we'll see whether I change it when it arrives.  Thanks.

the wi66pros are great guitars. i bought a used one, wich had emgs already in it. couldn't be happier with it. I prefer the thicker body import idols from Boogiestreet but  no complaints about my pro.

I never mess with my tone knobs, so the VCC wasn't a factor. If you play hard rock or metal, put a Dimebucker in that puppy. It sounds amazing.
