« Chuck's signature guitar »

Publié le 06/07/11 à 00:55
Chuck Schuldiner was one of the people that help create an entirely new style of music -- death metal. I single handedly attribute his work in Death to be what started a revolution. At the very least, it kicked off the Florida death metal scene. This guitar was made just like he had it. It has an alder body with a neck-thru mahogany neck, an ebony fretboard with 24 frets and diamond inlays, a shorter overall scale, one X2N in the bridge and one volume knob.

UTILIZATION

The guitar feels great. It's really just a more extreme and modified Explorer shape, and I always thought they felt pretty cool when sitting down with them. The fretwork on this was awesome, and I rate it among the best out there. They were polished to a bright shine, and they were properly beveled. The bridge felt nice in the hand, and although I'm more of a floyd guy, I can easily get used to this guitar. The lack of a neck pickup also helped give it a very cool "no nonsense" vibe.

SOUNDS

The guitar absolutely sounds ripping. I was never a huge fan of Death's tone, but this guitar sounds killer. It has a unique construction in terms of wood, but it seems to work with the X2N. The X2N truly pushes any amp into something that's chaotic, brutal and punchy. It has treble that'll sear your face off, but it seems to mellow out just before it gets harsh. It's also one of the tightest passive pickups out there, so you don't have to worry about a muddy mess when playing this thing.

OVERALL OPINION

If you're a big fan of Chuck, you gotta pick this guitar up. Even if you're not, this guitar is one awesome shred machine that'll deliver some powerful tones no matter what style of metal you play. I wish it had a neck pickup, but that's my own personal feeling as someone who tends to play more leads.
