  • Excellent Free Guitar

    Super playable and a great sound! I was playing with it in DecentSampler and thought it was good.. but the GUI didn't have any controls. I still enjoyed playing on it, but it wasn't until I used the Kontakt version that I saw the full functionality. On a Dry patch I wrote a line that could be a 28 Days Later style song with percussion and bass, then run through my own amp setup. Then I switched to the HighGain Amp patch and it sounded great. Found a sound I liked after customizing the verb and delay a bit, but wow, lots of options here!

  • Oh dear!

    I have played guitar for too many years to mention. Would I use this... Yes I would.... Please don't tell anyone. You can get some wonderful sounds from this. This takes a guitar to a whole new level.

  • Sounds premium!

    This library sounds great. Has lots of nice articulation and stuff, very useful

  • Amazingly sampled, very well-thought execution!

    This instrument has a premium quality to it, with with near perfect GUI, tons of options, and my favourite - an awesome high velocity kickass sample! This should be an instant-download to anyone who does not own a guitar or simply are not consistent or confident enough with their playing. Excellent! My only small complain is that it could use another octave for sure, for those shred moments you know, and that the buttons were customized instead of the mediocre Kontakt defaults. Oh and please, don't put compressed folders into compressed folders...

  • A killing sample

    ... For those who already love so much a true Strato sound.

  • Superb Guitar Package!

    This little beauty is simply a fantastic package. A lot of work must have went into the making of this, as it sounds very polished. This pack gives you so much inspiration and it has so much flexibility on the Kontakt version. I could write a lot about how it sounds, but this is one of those instruments you'll just have to try for yourself - RJS Guitar is a must have for any Pianobook user! Good job.

  • cannot believe this is free

    such a good sound I will be using this on a lot of my tracks now. a good clean strat sound. I have to put a little reverb on but that's standard. simply stunning. thank you so much for this

  • Make you want to speak in tongues

    There is so much soul to this guitar. Instantly playable, but takes some practice to get the perfect feel. Once you do you, and you find the right chord... the secret chord David played that pleased the Lord, you'll whisper hallelujah.

  • Just what I need

    A really great job in my opinion. All of the instruments work well and I think you have realised your aim. Thank you for this wonderful instrument and very well done

  • Impressive!

    There are a lot of electric guitar sample instruments out there, but this one is probably going to be a go-to for me, for leads particularly. Lots of options in one interface, and loads of samples – and the key switching makes it fun to play! I don't love that all the samples have vibrato on them because it makes playing chords a little chaotic. Also, it would be nice to have all the sample sets in one interface rather than a folder of instruments.

  • Wealth of articulations

    I particularly like the muted articulations to play funk style rhythmic patterns on top of chords. For more of a lead type guitar the two variants old strings vs new strings deliver a wealth of possible tones. Couple this with a spring reverb and you have an instant retro tone. The GUI is basic, but serves it's purpose. P.S. Would love to see a electric bass equivalent to this great library!
