Overall Rating:
Great guitar from a great manufacturer. I suggest getting this guitar if you are heavily into metallica because it has a Kirk Hammett'esk tone.
Price: $399.99 (new)
Where Obtained: IRC music ( Indiana)
Features:
It had some type of seymour duncans in it the config was s-s-h and it had a floyd rose double locking tremolo unit. Single cutaway flame matched top body with gotoh tuners 2 tones 1 volume a coil tap push/pull switch . Made in USA. 24 extra jumbo frets , a 6 string beauty. Possibly made of Korina wood. The wood is maple. Over all great guitar
Playability:
The neck action was a little high when I first bought it but then I lowered it a bit. The neck is ultra fast. It was like playing a PRS but with better pickups and it is better looking. No real flaws.
Sound Quality:
I use a Fender Cyber-Twin and a Digitech RP-2000 fx unit. It fits very nicely in the metal genre. The sound is amazing compared to a PRS. It was only noisy once when something went completely wrong with my rig. This is probably more sutiable for stage play..I would reccomend a diff guitar for studio because the clarity isn't all that great.
Durability:
Reliable enough to do a year round tour across the world. I haven't had to adjust anything except for the action on the neck. Everything is in shape.
