HOLY ACTUAL METAL. This may be one of, if not the, best guitar I've ever played.

Sound
The Fishman fluence pickups are some of my favorites I've had the pleasure of playing through. They cut through anything, and I'm still learning what all I can do with them sonically. Probably the best I've used, although It's been a while since I've used Invaders.

Features
I was concerned about the wood at first, but it's pretty light yet sturdy. I love the "hipshot" bridge, similar to a Floyd but without the bendy bendy part. I love it, as it has saddles with allow for customization with each individual strings height, as well as being low enough to actually get a 1.5mm to 2mm height on each string. Its tuning stability is a little feisty, but that may be the new strings. The spoke wheel truss rod is a godsend too, no more removing covers (I know i can leave them off but it looks tacky). The Locking tuners help as well.

Ease of Use
This guitar is SMOOTH and FAST. There are several licks i've been trying YEARS to nail, only to get them first try or within a few tries on this monster of a guitar. I'm super impressed with the pickups (again) as on several of my instruments (PRS SE Custom 24, Schecter Damien Elite) switching to the bridge for lead seems to have either no effect or a negative one. Not with this beast. Cuts through clean, gives it a nice bite. Only complaint would be it seems to be read more a little temperamental about truss rod adjustments, but then again i'm still getting used to it.

Quality
Very well made, so far (only had it about a week at this point) WELL worth the price tag.

Value
This may be my favorite guitar I own (don't tell the others). Possibly the best one i've owned (super close to call with the Synyster Special, the all black non flat top model).

Manufacturer Support
Non applicable as of 4-21-2019

The Wow Factor
This is truly a magnificent guitar in my opinion. I can't seem to put it down (hence why it took so long to write a review... as well as wanting to write an honest review). The only things I would tweak, is I'd use a full mahogany body, and maybe some brackets around the pickups (I tend to use them to anchor my pinky). Other than that, this guitar has completely impressed me.

Musical Background:
Since I was 17. Just Guitar. Trying to play professionally, (anyone wanna jam???)

Musical Style:
Rock and Metal
