I bought this guitar from L&M and i absolutely love it. It sounds great, feels great, is comfortable and not too heavy. The neck doesn't feel unnecessarily wide or thick making it comfortable to play. The Seymour Duncan Combo is amazing and sounds crystal clear. The high frets are actually comfortable and reachable, you can hit the 24th fret with ease. The Bad - over tightening the screws in the nut can make an odd sound and scared me good when i didn't know what happened. Obviously its a floyd rose special, so its not perfect, but works great as long as you don't over tighten the nut! The three way switch feels flimsy and loose and really feels like it doesn't belong with the rest of the hardware, with that being said i love this guitar. I feel like i am just echoing what Travis said in his review, however these are my issues. If you see this guitar, try it out!

Great guitar, CRUSHING tone, and a couple VERY minor gripes:0 of 0 customers found this review helpful

Recently purchased this used from the Sudbury store. Absolutely killer value. The spec is actually quite amazing on this guitar for what you pay, especially for the Seymour Duncan Nazgul/Sentient set, which sounds amazing for metal. Everything felt very solid on this guitar, it feels quite heavy and durable, but I do have a couple of points to consider: First up is the trem. It's a Floyd Rose Special, which is a step below their basic sort of model, and it does show a bit. It's a bit stiff to use, and sometimes there's a bit of a weird popping noise from the nut when you bend a string after a divebomb, but I found that might have been from me overtightening the screws in the nut. Now that I've loosened the screws a bit, I no longer have that problem, but I've also blocked the trem from raising so that I can accommodate alternate tunings. Secondly, the three-way toggle switch feels a bit looser than I'm used to from that type of switch, which is a bit disappointing on a guitar that, without sale pricing, costs close to $1100CDN. It doesn't feel quite like I'll break it while switching, but it is a point of stress on a guitar that's otherwise built to an incredibly high standard. These gripes are quite minor as they don't inhibit the guitar's epic playability and crushing tone. The fretwork is superb, the neck-through construction makes access to the upper frets a complete dream come true, and even though the neck is a gloss finish (which might not be to the tastes of many), it's actually quite a fast neck (and probably thinner than any Ibanez I've ever played). The scale length is a good compromise between playability and tone as well, being long enough to accomodate some quite djenty low tunings (like Ab and Gb!), while still being comfortable to play chords with at the lower frets. If you find one in your local L&M and you're looking for a great 7-string at a reasonable price, you really can't beat this deal. There isn't a 7-string in this price bracket that will provide you with this much joy. This is the first guitar I've owned that I wouldn't be embarrassed to hand to someone like Steve Vai or John Petrucci. Best bargain you'll find for 7-string guitars.
