Musicvox Space Cadet

September 20, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

The Musicvox Space Cadet is a beast, and I mean that is the best way possible.

Looking like a Les Paul mated with a Telecaster and created a new species of 6 stringed goodness, the Space Cadet still manages to create an identity all its own.

Made by the wonderful boutique guitar company from New Jersey that gave us the Space Ranger ( Musicvox-see earlier review,) The Space Cadet is a bolt-on, solid body , two humbucker, 6 string slab o’goodness.

I unpacked the guitar, slapped on some new strings and took it to practice. I tuned it once.

Two and a half hours later, I unplugged it and placed it back in its gig bag- totally satisfied with the experience of playing. The bridge pickup through a minimal amount of gain produced a meaty sound while retaining enough brightness to cut through and give my guitar placement in the rather loud room mix.

It is not often that a guitar moves into main instrument status after one playing session, but I am satisfied and trusting enough of this beauty to play it this coming weekend at a rather large festival.

I cannot recommend this instrument enough. If it fits your budget- it will meet your needs.

IfWhen you buy one, and you should- tell ’em we sent ya….

6stringdeals.com review:

For $829.00 you are getting a guitar that hangs with the best of the overpriced American Made guitars, (BUT, the Musicvox is not overpriced…. )Bonus fact: this one looks cooler.
