Neck-Through Construction
Neck-Through construction is used on the Kerry King Signature Wartribe because it provides the best possible sustain, resonance, comfort and access to higher frets. Neck-through has long been considered the premium construction method for high-end guitars. This construction starts with a long piece (or pieces) of premium North American maple. That piece runs from the tip of the headstock to the strap button on the opposite end of the guitar. This means that the headstock, fingerboard, pickups and bridge all are mounted to this single sound foundation. Sonically it is a difference you can hear. The neck-through construction also allows deeper cutaways, providing comfort no bolt-on or set-neck could offer.

The EMG-81 bridge pickup is a high output pickup designed especially for the lead guitarist. The 81 is at its best for high volume overdrive and amps with a master volume. Whether you're playing power rock and roll, or overdriving your amp, there's a razor sharp attack, and incredible sustain for brilliant soloing. If you're looking for exceptional qualities in a rock pickup, the EMG-81 is the one.

The EMG-85 pickup in the neck position is the perfect complement to the EMG-81 in the bridge. It's string interface lend itself to a more natural tone perfect for rhythm. The EMG-85 boasts loads of output without becoming muddy.

Beveled Top
The Kerry King Signature Wartribe Electric Guitar employs a beveled edge around the shape. In many ways, bevels on a top are similar to facets on a cut stone. They catch the light and reflect at different angles giving the instrument more of a three dimensional look.

Awesome sounding guitar, great for metal, also sounds awesome on clean too! if you got a good amplifier like my 100w marshall amplifier, your good to go. not to mention the awesome finish on this guitar! truely a awesome piece. but it is a little heavier then most guitars ive played, but that shouldnt be a problem

I build guitars for a living and have played since I was a boy. My experience is not only limited to guitars, but also extends throughout various other instruments including the violin. My son is very into heavy metal, and loves the band Slayer. I have no problem with his interest, and decided to encourage his musicianship by getting him a classic Metal guitar. That said, I ordered this guutar and set it up for him, shaking my head all the while at its shoddy construction, hoping that he wouldn't notice as I knew he would love it. I sat down to play it nd not only is it difficult to play sitting down (or standing up, it is VERY heavy and NOT stage ready) but the excess body mass and thick finish diminish the sound clarity on any sort of clean setting. The neck is thick and slow, a pathetic attempt to encourage speed or musical excellence. Save your money.

sounds great, looks amazing. The picture online doesn't do the guitar justice. Its a nice shiny gloss with the dark scarlet red flames and just looks amazing. It's really great for playing any kind of music, but it's truley amazing for metal. It has a huge gain, metally sound that sounds great. stays in tune great. I had it for about 2 months and still could not find one little problem with it....GET IT

Great, with some issues

By Jooe

from Idaho

Let me start by saying I really like this guitar! Very easy to play and has great sound. I was disappointed that the top of the line model came with issues. Mine has a screw that was not drilled properly and stuck out, I had to remove a string and drill it and put the screw in properly. Also there was a misplaced white plastic piece in the tremolo that blocked the handle from attaching to the tremolo. As I unpacked it that day those issues shock my confidence as to it�ۡ���s quality. Once I plugged it in (finally) my worries went away quickly. Did I mention I really like this guitar. Tons of style. This is by far my favorite.

Just Ok

By De Ominate

from Lisle, IL

I was expecting alot more when I shelled out the dough for this guitar. The low E wasnted seated properly, theres a buzz from the low E string, the craftsmanship just seems poor. I also had to peel off the MADE IN KOREA sticker. The only good things about it is... It is easy to play, and looks wicked. Not what I expected out of a signature guitar.
