  • ORGASMIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    As reviewed by Grant Bowen on 8/7/2012

    This guitar is truly astounding. It feels amazing, looks badass, and plays like butter. The EMG pickups have always been my choice, and they really pair nicely with this guitar. The 81 puts out some really monstrous tones with the gain cranked up and also has a nice bite to it, and the 60 gives it a nice warm, full tone when soloing, but when clean, wow, it gives this beautiful, bell-like sparkle with a nice full sound to it. The neck-thru construction really makes it stand out from the mix when playing with others, and it gives sooooooooo much sustain, its amazing. The Floyd Rose is awesome, you can get some killers sounds with it if you know how to use it. The tuning stability is perfect, I rarely have to adjust it. True, it is a lot of maintenance, but its well worth it. The rosewood fingerboard is euphoric, its like playing a stick of butter. And it also gives a really nice warm tone, especially on the clean channel. I have owned this for about 2 months now, and it still looks and feels brand new, very reliable and sturdy. Not any problems with it, none at all. Fairly light build, not all that heavy, which is always awesome. The whole metal black look is killer, I love it. Hell, just the skull and crossbone inlays were enough to get me to buy this beast! All in all, great guitar, stunning looks, smooth, buttery feel, high quality parts, and nice, full, warm tone. I highly suggest picking one up for yourself!

    This guitar is the real deal! Not one bad thing about it! The original floyd rose tremolo is so awesome, the stock strings themselves are better than the new strings on my current Ibanez, and this guitar sounds GREAT clean! But when you have the distortion going, wooh, this adds a whole new meaning to the word heavy. I'm in love with it. Buy it, ESPECIALLY if you have the cash and like Metallica.
