Though it is just a virtual metal band, Dethklok is featured in the hit show Metalocalypse. Produced by Adult Swim, the show now features the Thunderhorse Explorer Outfit. Brendon and Epiphone collaborated to create the ultimate 6-string weapon!

Killer Axe at a Killer Price!!!
Your general opinion of this product.
I bought this as a backup to my 1981 Gibson Flying V hoping that it was in the same tonal ballpark. It did not disappoint.
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
What is most impressive about this six-string is the quality and attention to detail. The creme body and neck binding is beautiful!!! The frets are finished perfectly with no sharp edges. Very smooth neck geometry and the phenolic fingerboard is very nice. I wasn't sure what to expect with that.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Dark tone and the jury is still out on the Gibson USA BurstBucker-1 & 2. Dark and muddy at times. Lacks a certain definition at times. Am considering swapping some DiMarzio's in there instead. A Super Distortion or D Activator at the bridge and a LiquiFire at the neck. And the split coil push-pull volume knobs is another sweet feature opening up the options for available tones.
How did the stain or paint job look?
The silver-burst paint job is almost flawless! There are a couple of very small marks/flaws in the paint but nothing alarming. I tend to be pretty picky when I buy a new instrument and the flaws I speak of, someone else may not even notice.
