Overall: Got the guitar today. I had to make a couple changes to the action. A few tweaks here and there she was ready to go. I will note the fret work stinks and the ends of the frets are a bit sharp and the Floyd was stiff and clunky feeling. My tech will take care of that. Also I am not a fan of the D Tuna. Prolly never use it much. After some basic tweaks I plugged it into my Plexi Clone and was blown away! The tone from the pickup is very responsive and clean sounding. All notes ring out with out muddiness. The neck took an hour or so to get used to. The neck is a little chunky on top them thins out to the 22 fret. If you like Ibanez or Jackson necks it will take some time to get used to this one. Now for the single volume knob. This pot is very fast and smooth feeling. Roll back the volume and you get a tone close to a neck pickup. Nice and warm no ice pick tones here. Things I do not like about the guitar. Fret work stinks and at this price point the setup should have been better. The tuners are no better than what you get on a standard mexi strat. The fine tuner for the low e sting adjustment is limited due to the D tuna. I wish the guitar was not done in Poly. The rattle can replicas look more real. The price is a bit high for what your getting. Hate to say it but this guitar has that cheap chinese knock off guitar feel. What I like about the guitar. The raw wood feel of the neck. The pickup is killer The volume pot is the best I have owned and used The over all tone of this guitar clean and dirty is killer.

Overall: I opened the box, took the packing off, tuned it up and was ready to go. Everything was in perfect order and the guitar is amazing. The pickup sounds great and delivers great balanced tones. The action was perfect for me. I haven't deployed the D-Tuner yet as I have just been so thrilled with everything else. I do have to admit that after a little while I did get distracted while playing at the paint job. It is so cool to look down and seeing what Eddie saw all those years on tour and in the studio.

Overall: simply put this is a $400 guitar for $900. i expected for this price that i wouldve gotten a product that at least matched the ibanez, schecter or esp/ltd's that i own as well as epiphone. but it was not even that quality. neck has terrible fret work and was cutting up my fingers. wont even play it until i take it to a shop to have that taken care of. its a novelty guitar, if you buy it, buy it for that reason knowing that you will probably have a bit of work to do to it first. sound is fine, sounds much like my rg series ibanez. not a floating tremelo so had to set that up myself. buy this guitar because you like the paint job and maybe the d-tuna, otherwise buy a much nicer schecter or ibanez. you'll get way more bang for the buck. i bought this for the evh factor and looked like a fun guitar to own, but i expected better quality for the price.
