Great guitar! Basically and Fender Jaguar crossed with a Gibson SG. Fit and finish perfect right out of the box...flawless. Neck is slim and feels great as do the stainless steel frets. Real rosewood board (dyed almost black so it appears ebony). Vibrato is smooth and works well with no tuning issues. Tuners are good though at this price point I would have expected stock locking tuners (406 series are direct replacements). Electronics all function well and the pickups sound good although a bit on the dark side...they are a bit cheap looking I will say but no noise or squeals. Again, at this price point, I would EXPECT US made pickups and components (like what Epiphone is doing with their Inspired By series...the Epis are cheaper too.) The hard case is much better than I expected. Very high quality and built like a tank. The outdated, individual, Jaguar-esque, pickup switches makes it almost impossible to switch pickups on the fly during a song. They should have just added a 3-way toggle like the Cobain Sig Jaguar from Fender. I'm not a huge fan of the name...seems kind of random. They should have went with Woodbine SE or LTD or something like that. Minor quibbles aside, it's a great guitar and will proudly gig along side my Gibsons. Suggestion, get a real photographer to take better photos and get some of these into the hands of some reputable YouTube reviewers....more players should know about these.

This guitar is simply amazing! It’s addictingly stylish, has lots of features, and sounds and feels fantastic! Definitely worth the money! This guitar has a place by my signed BMG, that’s for sure!

I got one of the first runs earlier this year, but I’m just now getting around to reviewing the guitar because I barely played it for the first couple of months. Why? Because I’m an idiot. First, let me say that the Switchblade was beautiful right out of the box. It looks better in person than it does in the pics, and the finish was flawless. Everyone who’s seen it loves the thing. However, Something sounded off with the low notes and there was a light buzzing sound I couldn’t seem to locate, which caused me to keep putting it down and going back to my Warlord. I thought the lighter gauge (than I’m used to) strings were throwing me off and I needed to adjust the setup, but I just never got around to doing it. Fast forward to two weeks ago: I decided to set up the guitar in C standard and found the issue. I left the damn plastic on the bridge pickup and didn’t notice it! What an absolute moron. As soon as I got that plastic off, everything came to life and the buzzing was gone. So, now I have the Switchblade setup with 12-56 strings in C standard, and it’s awesome. This thing is really fun to play and the neck is fast. I’m really digging the thumbwheels. I hardly ever use a guitar with both pickups on, but this one kills that way! I can get some really awesome tones that I can’t get on anything else. It doesn’t sound like my Warlord nor does it sound like my SG with P90s, which is a good thing. It has its own unique sound, feel, (look,) and versatility, which makes it a guitar that simply must stay in the collection because nothing else can replace those aspects. Also, I love the tremolo bar, especially since I don’t have any other guitars with one (anymore), and this one works quite well (so far, I’ve had no tuning issues from using it). That makes this guitar more versatile and interesting, in my opinion, meaning I have just as much fun messing around with cleaner settings and modulation effects as I do with heavy fuzz. Woodrite is killing it. This guitar looks, feels, and plays like a quality instrument. Nothing about it seems cheap or ill-conceived. I’ve been playing the Switchblade almost exclusively since I removed the plastic and did a setup for the lower tuning. I’m glad I was able to snag one before they sold out, and I would definitely recommend this guitar to anyone, not just doom players.

First of all, this guitar is awesome. It came perfectly setup. I love all the tonal possibilities. I’ve been playing it non-stop.

Two suggestions (which are just my personal preferences) for the next run:
1) I would love to see a 3-way toggle switch in place of the slider switches for the pickups. I have one of these on my Kurt Cobain Jaguar; they even have an extra hole that would fit the choke switch.

2) A push-pull pot (or mini-switch for phase)

I absolutely love what you’ve done with the coil splitting. Being able to dial it in is so enabling, as opposed to just a two-way switch.

I’m going to be playing this guitar for a very long time. Thanks again.

Absolutely flawless guitar. It looks stunning, sounds even better, and plays like glass! After tuning it up, the setup was spot-on. The action is crazy low and super smooth. All the tonal options you can get with this thing are ridiculous. I really dig the Trem system, especially with the roller bridge. Great idea. 10/10, no complaints and it is my new favorite thing in the world. Fucking stoked on this guitar!
