Well i looked at a bunch of fenders and a peavy raptor but i chose this preditor because its my school colors red and white (ecept the white is pearled) and because when i played it it fit my arms length perfectly and it felt good sitting with thats why a chose it if i had the money i would by it again but it would get stolen because if some one tryed to steal it i would kick there a** .
Model Year: 2002
Price: $350.00 (new)
Where Obtained: randy's music shop
Features:
Its made in the us the fret board top his mahogany but the neck is made out of maple it has 21 frets 6 stings it has a volume and tone control with a 4 way selector switch it comes with a wammy bar it has a pearled fret board it has a transparent paint job and looks really nice
Playability:
Most of the time my guitar does everything i want it to the neck is a perfect size not to wide or thin or long or short its just perfect in my opinion it plays very well to most fenders and peavy models the wolf gang and excalibur would problably blow the preditor out of the water but the preditor plays better than most. the only flaw on my guitar is that one of the strings has to be retuned a little more often then the rest
Sound Quality:
I use a peavy rage 158 amp with my guitar. i play metal and classical and blues. this guitar can perform all of those quite excellently with the 4 way selector switch i can change it to the way i prefer for each type of music. the sound of my guitar is very warm and full. the sound is better than any guitar ive played besides a peavy wolf gang. i would like the peavy wolf gang specials custome job or the fenders excalibur either would be awsome i would recomend this guitar for the studio because of its weight mainly that the only reason other wise the stage because it looks really nice
Durability:
It more than reliable enought for a concert or something i could play for 6 hours and only have to tune it mabey 3 times. id say once ever 2 hours worth of playing it needs to be adjusted. every thing on the guitar is perfect the wammy bar is fully functional and the strap locks work great ever thing is good ive noticed no differents by climate changes

I looked at fender based products first, namely Jaguars and mustangs, because of the artists who inspired me to play were playing these guitars. My first guitar teacher played a Mustang. If it were lost or stolen I'd have a tendency to just move on to the next guitar.
Price: $340.00 canada
Features:
Chrome tuning pegs. standard bridge. double cutaway strat-style body. Black polyurethane finish with white pickguard.
Playability:
Very active-sounding guitar. bright tonal qualities. Very susceptible to feedback, which I prefer whereas most don't. Low E-string produces fret buzz between 12 and 15th frets.
Sound Quality:
Boss DS-2 distortion pedal w/ crybaby wah. I can see neo-punks using this guitar for its noise making capabilities.
Durability:
The nut is showing signs of wear on the g and b strings. Intonation could probably be better. The neck is excellent. Guitar rarely goes out of tune unless left in damp area or near a window.
