« The Original Shred guitar »Publié le 06/16/11 à 05:51
This guitar is probably the best playign strat ever made. Its so good it probably cant be considered a strat anymore. The jumbo frets are huge and give you a nice playing action. The compound radius fretboard is nice and lets you play comfortably all the way up and down the neck. The Original Floyd Rose is the best tremolo system you can get and it will always stay in tune when properly setup.
The Dimarzio pickups are a welcome change to the Seymour Duncan pickups you get in most guitars like these. The Evo in the neck gives you a super sharp attack and over the top harmonics. These pickups are designed by Steve Vai for his over the top sound. The neck pickup is pretty bright and clear for a neck pickup because of this. The bridge pickup is a Tone Zone and it gets you the classic Van Halen sound. The Tone Zone has over the top mids and nice crunch. The Tone Zone is like a PAF on steroids. The over the top mids get you a wah like sound sometimes. EVH was close to selecting this pickup to go in his signature guitar. This pickup is the brown sound in a box.
This guitar is a nice and classy superstrat. I think these guitars will be very popular for a while. People who grew up in the 80s will remember the super strat trend. These guitars bring back some of those memories and put them in a classy shell. If you are looking for a classy super strat shreddy with versatile sounds this guitar is a good choice.
