After playing this guitar, you can defiantly feel the difference of it's awesome sound and feel from other guitars. I own a Yamaha EG and a Epiphone LP, and the sound of the Warbeast is much more beefier, clearer, and can handle a wide range of styles. I also find not having to tune it every time I play, the machines are very well build, and hold a tone after hours of play. Great pickups, great weight and durability for the price. I would say it's one of the better guitars I've owned in the last 20 years. The finish isn't QUITE as durable as say my Gibson's, but over all, the guitar's quality is great. No complaints. Very awesome price for an awesome guitar. This is very solid for metal, hard rock and even grunge, if you have the effect tools. Just out of the box and direct to an amp, this is strictly a lean and mean heavy metal machine. I think it's wonderful. Like I said, very killer sound (esp. with effects, distortion or a wah wah pedal), great weight for it's cool look, solid construction, and very reliable.

Neck is easy to play. Sound is good on distortion while using multieffect, otherwise isn't clear enough. Greatest minus is the guitar is difficult to play while sitting. Sharp guitar body hurts when on leg.
