Guitar made in Korea.
Channel crossing, with body and solid mahogany neck and ebony fingerboard.
Chavelet Floyd Rose, D handle 24 cases and 25.5 pitch. "
Settings: Mic volume handle, bridge pickup volume and tone. A 3-position selector.
Micro is a EMG85 the handle and the easel EMG81
Very nice guitar, very well balanced.
It is not the lightest, but its weight is quite bearable.
The neck is very fast and offers good access to acute.
I mainly play Black Metal (my favorite style), my opinion is therefore not necessarily the most open or most complete musically. That said, given its look, it is predestined almost exclusively to Metal.
To know that I used to play on stage coupled to a Laney GH100L Valveking 412 with a cab (he faudrais change HP).
To the rhythm I only use the bridge pickup. Many people are reluctant to sound cold edge of the EMG81 personally that's what I love. It helps here to have extremely effective rhythm. The sound is very well defined and kept clean at all times (when most heavily used tremolo-picking)
For solo I EMG81 also remains on the bridge that gives me the greatest satisfaction in this area. It helps to have a sharp attack, good sustain and brings out the treble. With a little reverb and a slight delay for melo solo, this is ideal.
For clean I pass either through or on the handle (EMG85). It helps to have a round and warm, which is especially nice for the clean. Playing with the volume (especially if you have a tube amp behind) you can play on the dynamics of the amp and get the sound interesting. To know that the clean pass on the 81 as well, then it's more a matter of taste.
In the end, the level there is nothing wrong and I tried in another style, even a little blues style or what it gave. Strangely, even though this is not the case with its look, this guitar is pretty versatile.
I use this guitar for 2 years, I had the opportunity to do quite a scene with and for anything I do not part with.
I have not had the opportunity to test a lot of other guitar sound level range (RR24, DBZ Venom, Jackson Demmelition, ...) and I must say that it is the comfort level Warlock I prefer.
What I like also the fact that it is beautiful, is its ease of play and quick set.

So, the flight. top, adjusts the bridge and conversely, the lower rule the neck! I found this provision on the BEAST V. It's nothing to rectify what I did on two guitars! Bridge / Tailpiece: 1000 SERIES ORIGINAL FLOYD ROSE Hardware: black Finish: painted glossy Color: onyx
A perfect finish! It's beautiful, clean, nickel, PERFECT! From head to electronics! Not very heavy despite its thickness, perfectly balanced! Neck Through design allows easy access to acute. The neck is fairly flat but wide (compared to the BEAST V which has a handle cons more rounded). Here, the assessment is really a matter of taste! The sound is good, it's clean everywhere in the first box to the last, was really a nice "product". Sustains good but less than the V BEAST! The Floyd is awesome as usual! After a quick adjustment necessary is happiness absolut! No other system comes close to him not even the Kahler ® tremolo! Far from it! ! But hey! Again this may be a matter of taste! ? ! )) As against a disappointing point, and oh! ! The frets! They did with the model V BEAST KK the best handles on which I played until now and that is not a model or serial NJ DELUXE. And, it's like income 30 years ago! These frets seem a bit big and long, they feel the ends of the handle! And that's really annoying, well for a guitar in this category as perfect (upper upscale with BC Rich), they could choose another mount with frets shorter and less heavy (Medium Jumbo by example). Bizarre as choice! But hey, they are people who prefer! ! : ((That said, it's not a disaster either (it is a thousand light years from HAGSTROM XL5), it scrapes the fingers and not finishing the race is absolutely sublime and can play with ease, but I was expecting something extraordinary, super comfortable (according to my criteria) and it's not really that, because the choice of hoops! added on 18/03/11. However, the system of large frets JUMBO has an advantage that can justify this choice. Paradoxically, a big band involves less finger pressure and suddenly gain speed, Shred wins with ease, we play faster! Incorporating this and changing my grip , I'm spirit to ask me if I'm not the best rounds I've ever had??)
The sound! Well, there also is not trance! The EMG tap strong, very strong but very little more than the assets of the BC RICH BEAST V! A sound can be more detailed, cleaner! 18/03/11 After the addition recomparaison comparison and, undeniably, the sound of EMG (with distortion) is more precise, more analytical but also more cold! I rediscovered an old passive DiMarzio Super I for 30 years and I just installed on another guitar and it sounds good touches me more than the assets of both my BC Rich combined! on the other hand in terms of power is no comparison! That said - in clean, the sound is very good and very clear. The 85 sounds super serious, round, with a lot of heat and power while the 81 is more acute and cold! - At warp, it has a potato in hell!
I use it since 15/03/10. She has many extraordinary assets: she is beautiful beautiful home (well more than the pictures), a perfect finish, a line damn catchy (the best I've ever seen), characteristics dream. In short, a Rolls guitars. But if the Rolls may be considered the most beautiful car it is not the most reliable nor the most efficient and much less expensive and luxurious can be found elsewhere may be more interesting ... ! )) This purchase completes a series of spending more or less random! Everything started with the acquisition of a BC RICH BEAST KK V (Undercutting on thotho) which was a revelation but at the same time was born an obsession: to find the comfort of the handle of this BEAST V with a guitar line over conventional, finer! But chimera? ! I have not yet found! ! : ((After I turned into a rather disappointing HAGSTROM XL5 next round, I thought to finish acquiring the ESP LTD M300! But as I walked on I came across the thotho WO NJ DELUXE B-Stock at 545 / € 525 (although it is found usually around 800), which tempts me tremendously! But too late, the guitar is sold! Disappointed, I began to look beautiful on the net at a similar price and I fall on a Spanish site (lookat.com) who sells a few euros more but new! And voila! Her beauty could be due to the reason! However, to make the election again ...? If only she had the configuration (and comfort) of the handle of the Beast V! This would be the ultimate guitar! Let us pass the time, we'll see!? Addition 22/03/11: Time passes and I begin to appreciate more and more. The jumbo Freight bother me less and less, on the contrary, my game became more and more daring ... Amazing! "and even the surgical aspect of his starts to please me!)
