The AMG100 plays very easily thanks to its low action and extended neck joint. A deeply beveled lower cutaway also makes it easy to reach the highest frets. The swappable pickup configuration gives the AMG100 some added utility, though the single-coil option was not provided. No matter, though, as we’ve still got the 3-position voicing switch to play with, right? Well, not exactly, as the three settings don’t alter the sound to any appreciable degree. Only by lowering the Tone knob can you hear any difference between the middle position (which bypasses the Tone control altogether) and the other settings. And with no coil-split or parallel/series options, this is a rather useless function. Still, the AMG100 delivers good clean and overdriven tones that have the body, output, and balance roughly equivalent to a classic Gibson humbucker guitar. Picture the AMG100CH as kind of a 24-fret/humbucker/bolt-neck alternative to a Les Paul Junior, and you’ve got a pretty good idea of where this guitar is coming from.
