Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Very good quality on this guitar. I think that the graphics are great and I remember George playing this style guitar back in the day and thinking how cool it was! General Your general opinion of this product. Overall this guitar is great and the build quality is very good for a production guitar. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? The neck pickup is a little weak for me but that is a common problem even on my variax. I just need to replace the unit with a Dimarzio and all will be good. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Cool graphics and finish looks great with no dings or marks from the factory.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? The ESP LTD Kamakazi is crafted very well. The body, neck and hardware are good quality, and the electronics are fair. Mine had some flaws though, there were some hammer marks on the sides of the fretboard from when they installed the frets, and the 5th fret was cut a little too short, so when I do a pull-off with the high E string, it tends to slip off the fret. Also the fret edges on the treble side were a little rough, I had to sand most of them, to smooth them out. I will probably have the bad fret taken out and reset (pushed down further) since low E string pull-offs are down not up, so that should fix my high E pull-off trouble. The hammer dents bug me but they are not affecting the way my hand reacts on the neck. I hope your Kamakazi does not come with these flaws. General Your general opinion of this product. The LTD Kamakazi definitely feels like an 80's Heavy Metal music guitar. My age is 48, and I still have three floyd rose guitars I bought when I was 20 years old (two of the first Kramers and one of the first Ibanez) and the Kamakazi looks very similar to all ofr them. The design on the body will certainly make you get noticed when you play this guitar on-stage, because it is very different as compared to just a solid color guitar. One thing I don't like though is the placement of the giant postage stamp kamakazi pilot's face. It would of been much better if they would of put it between the two pickups, instead of on the top of the guitar, because it throws the camoflauge pattern off balance. But I also think it would of been better to not put the picture of the pilot at all, because this guitar would of looked just fine with only the camoflauge pattern and nothing else. The pilot and the Kanji symbols, and the five bombs on it are like unsightly tattoos that ruin its beauty. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? The Kamakazi has no tone controls, just one push pull knob that controls volume and pickup selection. You can't use both pickups at the same time, only one or the other, but that's part of the beauty of this guitar, the bridge humbucker has a tone like if you turn the treble all the way up, and the neck single coil sounds a bit warmer, you can get a good jazz sound with it, if you like or a strat sound, but the bridge pickup is made for playing loud through a high gain amp on distortion. I tried the Kamakazi through the distortion channel of five of my favorite 100 watt heads that I own: Marshall JCM 800, Peavey JSX signature, Peavey Windsor, Engl Powerball, and Soldano SLO, running each of them through my Marshall 4 12 1960 A cabinet, and heavy metal music never sounded so good! I'm sorry I own all these expensive amp heads, but I'm wealthy, what can I say? I even tried some country music through my roland jazz chorus with the neck pickup and it sounded pretty good! Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The guitar is not painted, but it is more like a giant decal with a gloss over it, and like I said before it scratches very easily. This is certainly 1980's metal era design, and it will be a very "different" and collectable guitar for you. This was designed for George Lynch of Dokken, and it certainly looks nicer than Eddie V. Halen's white and red striped guitar. Also the back of the neck is finished very smooth and slippery, it is a c shape radius and is very fast for lead solos.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Here is my only issue and it is minor if you have been playing guitar for a while,if I was a newb I might be mad.When I unpacked the guitar one of the locking nut screws was stripped,and it has fret buzz on 2 strings at the 3rd fret.Lucking I keep tons of locking nut screws around. General Your general opinion of this product. I've been a huge fan of George Lynch for almost 30 years.When this product came out I had to have it and figured for 500 bucks it was probably gonna be a garbage backup only guitar.I am glad to say it totally exceeded my expectations!!. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Again the humbucker tone is awesome,the single coil is mediocre. Finish How did the stain or paint job look?
