handle fairly late in the spirit of ESP MII and less wide; nothing to do with LP - very pleasant to the metal

2 microphones GEM passive pickups but circuit powered by a battery, making them active: microphones typed Burstbuicker
it sounds very heavy but too chaleuruex for the metal (at least fast and accurate) - it lacks a small side insicif for the death and thrash: I've replaced a couple SH5/SH1; rajoutais what it lacked this guitar; fishing!!

very light guitar (swamp ash), access to super sharp, good posture involves standing


guitar for rock and metal but you can easily play blues with original pickups, volume knobs and respond well

his bold enough to change where my microphone and it was missing, as I said, this side insicif and punchy


I've had a year and I'm really happy and she has not moved, the color is beautiful and the impeccable floyd is tip top (Schaller)

Not overly impressed so

Being in ash, however, I expected a more dynamic guitar and incisive, the mahogany set neck too surely brings roundness.

The rosewood fingerboard with small logo collage type'' drop of blood'' is also a bit cheap and tacky anyway, an ebony fingerboard with simple inscrustaion the 12th as on the Voodoo would have been better
