    UTILIZATION

    Guitar madness! The neck is super comfortable! This is the best round that I had the chance to play a set at the same level as the gibson Joe Walsh.
    The profile is in line with the 60 but thinner (flatter). For me to say much good this round, I could compare it to a lot of war machines…

    UTILIZATION

    Guitar madness! The neck is super comfortable! This is the best round that I had the chance to play a set at the same level as the gibson Joe Walsh.
    The profile is in line with the 60 but thinner (flatter). For me to say much good this round, I could compare it to a lot of war machines!
    ESP M2 one of a kind, ibanez prestige wizard, Jackson RR1, suhr (all sold) ... the fucking guitars made for Riffer to 100,000! But hey, comfort is not always synonymous with speed!

    Ultra comfort handle, a big 56 Les Paul with Gibson! This is great but the hand is placed and wedged ;)
    Then I have a Zakk Wylde CS, excellent handle but lacks the side "easy" for the treble!
    Ben V Hammett combines comfort and playability!

    The guitar is light (LP'm used to ... my judgment may be unreliable).

    The electrical equipment is very simple! 2 EMG switch 3 position 1 and 2 vol tona! Basic but roughly effective!
    It sounds and not a little! for the metal (ancient and modern), even mid standard is impressive, bass are the mediums used to have this little peculiar sound we love so much about palm mute! In short, a wonder.

    SOUNDS

    I'm a rocker loooool! The sound of the 70's to current metal ultra violent!
    She is more comfortable in the current metal on sounds more rock! good but the neck pickup is so good in this guitar that you can tease some pretty soft registers.

    Otherwise the sound of the bridge is the most accurate, but not cold, it reminds me of my Zakk Wylde, these guitars give life to these active pickups because of their build quality.

    I play on the Fryette Ultra Lead, deliverance and CLX, connect on 212 Fryette and EVH.
    Actually these amps not help evil in Quette sound, they are very clear, very precise, super low strained the medium that affect the sound of an extraordinary manner and indescribable grain.
    Torque V Hammett and Fryette is close to excellent (for me), I have never been so close to the sound I have in head without artifice, just guitar and amp, no pedals nothing!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 1 week non stop! it became addictive! I never found skyscraper able to compete with my Zakk Wylde and indeed what is done!
    Of course in a register rather heavy metal and company, then for the blues rock sound, it is not really made for that, even if the neck pickup and manufacturing quality allows him to rub shoulders with other registers less nags!
    I prefer it a good old R8 or R9 for blues rock.

    This V is a true work of art, it reeks of quality, so decried in gibson! Comfortable and easy to play. Reliquée just right!
    I love metallica but not absolute fan! I prefer James Kirk, so not an emotional choice but choice of quality and feeling.
    This is a guitar collector.
    Certe it costs an arm! and yes a luthier can do something like that ... but why bother??
    It is a choice! I had the opportunity to have one, I took advantage! I had to separate myself from a lot of stuff, but I absolutely do not regret!
    What a pleasure!
    If you have the opportunity to try ... go! Put the price aspect, gibson and other aside and enjoy! It is an experience not to be missed.
