This guitar screams look at me, which you may be a fan of! This was my first electric guitar ever, and I still enjoy it to this day. Personally i wouldn't recommend this as a first guitar for anyone, the floating bridge makes changing tunings and strings a nightmare especially for someone new to the world of guitar playing. But seriously, this guitar visually sticks out like a sore thumb but not in a band way. The pickups in this guitar will get you a decent tone and the playability is great. People will definitely know you like Pantera if they see you playing this.
