First off let me say if you like big necks, and I mean big, this is for you. Its bigger than my 59 neck! The guitar itself is stunning with the phych finish and flamed top on the back, definitely an eye catcher anywhere I bring it. The frets were pretty much perfect right out of the box, it was just slightly out of tune from the get go. The Zakk EMG set is good, I'm not an active user to I'm swapping them eventually but they definitely don't sound too bad, specially if you want that zakk sound.
It has sustain for days, the thing says 20 pounds for God's sake. Tone knobs works about as good as I expected, not much to it but you can definitely notice a difference.
Grovers and tonepro hardware is great. I see why Zakk and many others use the combo.
Ease of Use
Just plug in to an amp with even mild gain and you'll start to hear the active pups roar. No lessening curve as far as I can tell unless you're used to wizard thin necks
Its built like a tank, I'm taking it on tour soon so we'll see how she stands the test of time.
I think it is a little overpriced, part of that is probably having Wylde on it. But I think if they lowered it even to 999.99 it's a more than fair value
Manufacturer Support
Haven't had to contact them and dont think I'll need to anytime soon.
The Wow Factor
The finish is 100% the wow factor here, and it really does turn heads. I have guitars worth twice as much and even gear heads choose to noodle on this bad boy.
