General What is your overall opinion of this product? The Dimarzio Tone Zone & Air Norton are two of my favorite replacement pickups. They sound incredible in this guitar. You can get anything from a nice clean jazzy sound from the neck pickup with the tone rolled down a little (looks weird playing jazz on a Destroyer)too a really full distorted sound on the bridge pickup that sounds great for rhythm & leads. Definitely a great guitar for heavy rock & metal. I have this for a week & I'm really enjoying playing it. The neck is really comfortable, the frets are finished great & it looks really cool. Very nice guitar!

What is your overall opinion of this product? This by far the Destroyer to get, regardless of country it was made. My first guitar was a DT155 in the same color, I had to give this guitar a try. I play Ibanez, mostly MIJ, so I was suprised on how well this played.
An excellant reissue

What is your overall opinion of this product? This is the best version of the Destroyer since the Phil Collen model with a Kahler. The bridge and tailpiece are leaps ahead of Gibsons and designed very well.The neck profile is my favorite and the jumbo frets are well dressed. My had a few finish flaws but ut sounded so alive I couldn't return it.The Dimarzio pickups are among the best I have heard. I have many guitars with Duncans and Dimarzios and this guitar has the best tone of any. It has incredible richness and bright sustain that is very alive. The bass is articulate and the highs are bright and full.The guitar needed a small truss rod adjustment as I like a very flat neck. The disappointment was in the selector switch and pots. I would have perferred large pots and a swtchcraft selector switch.Overall the quality is very good but it could have been a little better. However it does sound like a very expensive guitar and not a Chinese assymbley line model. It feels like a fine well crafted guitar.
