Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (17 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Excellent Buy For Your Buck!"
Sound: Overall, this guitar was made to rock. The tone you get from both the bridge and neck pickups is amazing! I changed out the strings as I always do on new guitars and let me tell you what, I was inspired to play like Dave himself would. Feature: I liked the fact that it came with a case. It's a pretty solid case and I'm sure it will hold up with the abuse I plan on giving it. I also liked the straplocks it came with. Ease of Use: When I received my guitar I plugged in to my amp and the first thing I noticed was how natural my hand felt on the neck. That and how light the guitar was. I jammed for a couple of hours and felt like I could go on all night. Quality: Everything about this guitar is reliable. The tuners are solid, as are the volume and tone knobs. I had to set the action a little lower to my liking, but other than that, it's a well built guitar. Value: I would definitely recommend buying this guitar to anybody. It is worth the price. The Wow Factor: I came, I saw, I bought it! I picked out the silver one just because that color strikes me as being fast. Overall: I most definitely will be playing this guitar for the next several years.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "A GREAT axe."
Sound: Sounds very nice. I am accustomed to Japanese-made Ibanez guitars and EMG pickups (81, 85, and 707). The LiveWire pickups that come in this guitar are perhaps a little bit less hot than an EMG, but with a more "open" sound - i.e. less 'scooped' and more 'flat'. The tone is a bit more bass heavy than I am used to, which I am chalking up to the mahogany body. Lead tones sound very, very nice; warm and thick. This is my first non-Floyd Rose bridged guitar. It is quite loud when played unplugged, and the sustain is much, much better. Overall, I am quite happy with the sound. Feature: I can't complain. This guitar comes with everything you need to play metal. It even came with a shiny new set of strings installed. The knob layout is unique, and a very smart design in my opinion. The volume knobs are 'backwards' by design - the front knob controls the bridge pickup, the rear knob controls the neck. I think this is a great feature - you can do swells on the bridge or cut the volume during a quiet passage easily, and the neck pickup knob stays out of your way. Also, the tone knob is way at the back where it should be (who uses that thing anyways?). Ease of Use: The neck has a unique shape, but it is very comfortable. I was instantly comfortable with it. The profile is a bit thicker near the edge of the neck than an Ibanez Wizard neck, but the overall thickness is roughly the same. The only learning curve I had to climb was getting used to not having double-dot inlays on the fretboard at the 12th fret. Also, I am finding that this guitar is even more comfortable to play seated than a super-Strat shape. I put the notch of the V on my left leg, and I hook the point of the V around my right ankle. This locks the guitar into position so I don't have to hold up the neck with my left hand. Quality: I have always avoided Korean guitars in the past, but noting the advancements that companies such as Samsung and LG have made in quality as of late, I bought this on a whim. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised. This guitar is maybe ever-so-slightly more rough around the edges than a Japanese Ibanez, but not enough to make an appreciable difference. The metallic silver paint job looks much better in person than on the internet. The hardware is top-notch, and the case this thing came in appears that it could survive a nuclear blast. Value: I do not believe this guitar is worth anywhere near the MSRP that Dean has come up with (but it is still a very nice guitar). Search for a better deal. Manufacturer Support: N/A The Wow Factor: Just look at it. You know you want it. Overall: I anticipate that this guitar will serve me for a long time. The only thing this guitar will need in the future are new sets of strings.
