I was originally planning on getting the BC Rich NJ Beast, but due to money constraints I ended up getting this package instead. I had played the NJ Beast before, so I had a general idea of what the sound would be. I ended up having to get straplocks because it would tend to fall with the straps I was using. I don't know whether it was because of my straps or not, but I figured it would be best to be safe than sorry. SOUND: I was quite surprised by the quality of the sound and how much it resembled that of the NJ, being that it costs a few hundred less. It has a very dark, metally tone that can be used in all genres of metal, but I exchanged the stock pick-ups for EMGs eventually. I would suggest changing the strings right away because they were not very good at all. I play the SOB through a Line 6 Spider II 120 Watt amp with a Scott Ian POMD and a DF-7 Distortion Factory pedal, and it has the very dark, chunky tone needed for my playing. Playability: The neck feels pretty comfortable, but at first it was difficult to play. Once I changed the strings though, it got a tad easier to work with. It does lack a bit in options, being that there is just 1 volume knob/1 tone knob/3-way switch, but it gets the job done. The body design is a bit quirky to play with at first. Be careful when you are sitting down playing it, because the spikes might nail ya in places you don't want to be nailed lol. Even though the design is radical, it is comfortable as long as you are careful while sitting down. AMP: The amp is good for practice, and that just about does it. It lacks the options of more expensive amps and has barely any settings on it. There are Distortion, Volume, and Tone knobs, but that is pretty much it. If you toy with it enough, you might be able to get some half decent tones out of it, but it would be smart to upgrade the amp as soon as possible. Even when you play at a comfortable practice volume level, the sound gets distorted(and not in a good way).
The amp is surprisingly good. It's the best practice amp I have used. I replaced the cord and the strap immeadiately but they were ok for starter equipment. The little Beast is a great guitar for the money. It really stays in tune (unlike my son's Fender). I have a Zoom GFX-1 hooked up the the little amp so I can have some variety when I'm playing late at night. The rest of the time the Beast is being played through my Marshall MG100dfx. The little practice amp keeps the cops away after midnight without making me wear headphones. This really is an excellent starter pack. It has everything you need to get started and it doesn't sound like a cheap starter pack. The guitar is of good quality and sounds as mean as it looks. The headstock is a bit obnoxious though. I'd suggest buying an effects processor or pedal if you get this pack because the amp is quite limited when it comes to effects. A switch for clean or grind is all you have to choose from.
At first, when I tried out this guitar, it was pretty good, but I had played better before. And it fit my budget, and so I got it, when I got home I adjusted the bridge on it and now it plays amazingly awesome. It plays smoother than most guitars that I have tried for like $1000. But I still need to get better pickups for it, because the stock ones arent the best, nor worst, but thats probably why it sells for less. For a finishing touch, I put on a few screamin skullz knobz.
This is beyond words. This guitar is sooooo smooth. It doesn't make a difference what genre you play, you will shred. I'm still a beginner, but this one of the best feeling guitars I've ever played. I'm mostly a metal player, and I'm a southern rocker. This fits both, and then some. It is quite a step up from what I used to play, a squier strat. With such a smooth neck, my hand couldn't be more comfortable when it comes to moving my hand a lot, like playing Becoming, from Pantera. Sweeps are crisp, and dropping to D will destroy any other guitar within a 200 mile radius. ROCK ON!!!
i got this guitar about a year ago and its been great since i got it. its got a sick look to it and has got a nice sound to go along with it. its got a great distorted or clean sound. i mainly play metallica or hard rock and it always sounds great. the only problems with this guitar are that it takes some damage wen u bang it into things, and the amp isnt too good. it pokes u sometimes too .even though its a package guitar, its still great to play and that shouldnt even make a differenece. i reccomend gettin this guitar for anyone who wants a sick look and sound and doesnt feel like spending alot of money. overall, great guitar
