This is a great choice for everyone who likes to play heavy, without losing the great clean sound. With the EMG 81-60 set, it sounds AWESOME! The neck is the most comfortable possible, giving you only good feels while playing it. The only thing that I don't like about it is that it's not a well balanced guitar, so the neck keeps pointing down, and you have to keep it up with your hand. But, once you got the way to play it, just METAL it!
