Pleasantly surprised!
What is your opinion of this product?
First impressions this guitar is excellent, the tuners feel solid the neck is super comfy and the body sits perfectly balanced on a strap, pickups have tons of output and punch and this guitar is so resonant, I seriously played for 15 minutes before I plugged in and was blown away a second time, the frets are beautifully crowned and the edges are silky smooth nothing rough or out of place excellent quality all the way around! And the case is beefy I keep looking for where they cut corners to get the price down from the USA model and I can’t find it anywhere nothing feels lacking or half assed. If your a les Paul guy you’ll immediately feel at home and if your a shred guy once you stop reaching for the bar you’ll have a new favorite!

Great guitar but had to be tweaked
What is your opinion of this product?
I purchased the Snakebyte a few months ago (the Snow White version) and fell in love with it. The updated shape of the Explorer along with the hardware and snake inlay really make it a guitar that stands out. It’s a comfortable weight so you can play for hours without feeling fatigued and its balanced very well so that when you are wearing it, it doesn’t feel like it wants to “nose dive” as soon as you let go of the neck. It will stay put. I love the hardware. It is heavy duty and I love having the set pins on the on the bridge. It really helps when changing your strings as it wont fall off. I also love the EMG’s (JH-N and JH-B). They have an excellent sound. The crunch is strong when playing dirty and the clean is just about the cleanest I’ve ever had. The only downfall to the Het Set pickups is, they’re so hot, that there was a lot of humming through my amp. I rewired the guitar and got a noise supressor and that corrected the problem. Over all, I love this guitar!!!

Seriously hot guitar
What is your opinion of this product?
Loving this guitar, seriously high output on this guitar. The hetfield set is a really great sounding set of pickups. Neck is nice and round and on the fatter side. The paint job (satin black) is a little thin and is wearing pretty fast from where my arm rests on the guitar. So character grows fast on these guitars. Other than that, sounds great, plays great, I love it.
