Favorite 7 string
By: Alex from Milwaukee, WI
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
I consider it to be made well especially for an import. It uses very large frets instead of something like medium jumbo these feel like dunlop 6100s. The neck is very thin for a 7 string. The jeff loomis model is fantastic too but the neck is really thick. The body is extremely comfortable too.
How has it stood up over time?
I haven't had it very long but it stands up just fine.
Your general opinion of this product.
I really like it. Comes with EMGs stock, super jumbo frets, you can get great action on this guitar if you adjust the truss rod right, looks cool, and is very comfortable to hold. The problem I have with other guiars is the body isn't contoured so you end up resting your arm on a hard piece of wood edge which hurts. The cutaway on this thing is really huge too so theres no obstruction at all to the 24th fret.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
It has a medium heaviness to it. The neck is thin but not extremely thin where its ucnofmrotable. Controls are easy to get to.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
The pickups are hot and the tone is bright and a little smoother than the Jeff loomis signature. Overall the tone is good though.
How did the stain or paint job look?
Paint job looks awesome with the wraith graphic.
How was the action out of the box?
Action out of the box sucked like most guitars but after messing around with the truss rod and the guitar action I now have 1mm action on the 12th fret high e and 2mm on the low b with no buzz. It's all in how straight the neck is.
