What can I say about the Wylde Audio Barbarian?? Well, the obvious place to start would be the absolutely mesmerizing paint job on this thing. I got the guitar on a Tuesday. 5 days later my work sent someone over to check on me. They said I was in a trance like state, drooling over the just opened box that contained this mystical masterpiece. The satin black hardware perfectly accessorizes the ebony fret board and EMG pickups. Pure hotness. Once I managed to use the bathroom and hydrate a little, I took the guitar out of the shipping box. Wow! This thing was built to destroy! The neck is as fat as any neck I have ever played. That alone will turn some folks off. I have never much cared for a baseball bat neck and was initially a little put off. After I strummed a few chords and played Happy Birthday to my cat, I quickly realized it was actually very, very comfortable. Heavy duty and well made in every aspect. This thing CRUSHES! Buy one, or two if you are a survivalist.
