This guitar is very unique from other guitars I've played(Fender Strats,Ibanez RGs). The ebony fretboard is hard, which makes notes for leads more clear and standing out. When playing solos(for metal),shredding fast gives you the Yngwie Malmsteen tone. It may sound like Yngwie, but I wasn't too sure about the pickups with the warm, not-very-distorted sound. Since I play metal from many genres, I have to say that I recommend getting better pickups for metal players out there...But besides that this guitar is it, the one and only guitar for a true lead guitar player!The guitar is lightweight,comfortable to play, and thin. This guitar is OK for an intermediate player, but is mainly for advanced players who know what their going to do with their life...Play lead guitar!
