Great guitar. The neck is as comfortable at a neck can be, easy to get the last notes. The action is very, very low, but without compromising the sound. The body weight is well balanced and the wood add a great tone, not only for metal but also for classic rock. The pickups are powerful and completely quiet. No hum at all even at high distortion. The single coil position is not really useful, it has not a very special tone, but this guitar is focused on humbuckers and they sound really good. The inlays are easy to recognize, it's almost weird to play another guitar once you get use to this one. The paint and the purfing are beautiful, maybe a little easy to get scratched because it's ver shiny.
