"Incredible Guitar!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I've had my Reaper 6 for over eighteen months now and in spite of having more expensive guitars with more high end features I always seem to keep coming back to this one. It just feels "right" to me. The tone, the playability, and the overall vibe keeps drawing me back in. Just as a comparison, almost all of my other guitars feature a compound radius fretboard, locking tuners, stainless steel frets, luminlay side dot markers and branded pickups (Fishman's, DiMarzio's). This guitar has none of those. But it's also about two thirds the price of the cheapest of my others. And while these features are certainly nice to have, none of them contribute to making me sound and/or play better or make me a better musician. I suppose neck shape and radius, as well as tone are very subjective things. But the Ultra Thin 5 piece neck on the Reaper is just an amazing feeling to play. And I can't begin to say enough about those Diamond Decimator pickups! A lot of folks swear by their own favorite brand of pickups and some will automatically dismiss the Decimators out of hand. But these pickups can handle anything I can throw at them. They are very hot, but they are also exceptionally clear with plenty of bite when needed. They can also give you very Fender-y single coil chime when they are tapped and run through a clean channel of your amp. Again, tone is a very subjective thing, but right now these are my favorites. The Graphtech nut and Schecter's version of a string thru Hipshot bridge lend read more to incredible tuning stability. Even unplugged this guitar has a beautiful resonance and plenty of sustain. Add in an ash body, beautiful poplar burl top, reverse headstock, and ebony fretboard and this guitar is also a stunning looker as well. I highly recommend this guitar for not only metal, but it's tonal versatility lends itself to many other genre's as well
