The playability of this guitar is pretty good as you would expect with a shred guitar. The neck is nice and thin and the fretboard is super flat. The flat fretboard with the jumbo frets. The Original Floyd Rose is one of the best tremolo systems you can get. Once you set this one up it wont go out of tune no matter how hard you beat on it.
This guitar by design is a one trick pony. This guitar is built for 80s shredding and thrash metal. The Super Distortion is a very period pickup that hardly anyone uses anymore and because of this it fits perfectly into this period guitar. It is an old school high output pickup that doesnt do cleans all it does it heavy music. It has a lot of low end which matches well with this alder guitar. It helps beefen up the sound of a naturally thin sounding guitar.
If you are in an 80 tribute band or something and need a guitar straight out of the 80s this is for you. It comes in crazy bright colors that will match your pants and only has one pickup, because thats all you need to rock out. It has a sound as big as your hair and with the Floyd Rose you dont need to know any scales or anything to play a solo. If you are looking for a super 80s guitar this is for you.
