  • Sound

As it appears to be, this guitar targets extreme metal enthusiasts. The X2N is one of Dimarzio’s popular high-output pickups, which works great when playing on high-gain settings. It’s dual-blade pole pieces provides an even sound, with a lot of sustain. It’s tone is ideal for thrash and death metal, giving clear distortion and loud harmonics when playing fast riffs, palm-muting, or playing alternate-picked licks On a clean setting, the pickup’s output seems fairly moderate, however it tends to produce some overdrive when strumming hard, but this obviously isn’t a concern for people interested in such a guitar.

  • Feel and Finish

Not only does this guitar sound like a metal guitar, it looks like one as well. At fist glance, the guitar’s radical shape makes it seem heavy or uncomfortable to play, however this isn’t the case. The sleek, yet clever design of this guitar makes it light, and very comfortable, almost as if it were begging to be played. The neck is has the same Onyx black finish as the body which gives the guitar a nice plain look. It isn’t thin, but not thick either, instead it’s just somewhere in between so it feels great. The cutaway makes it easy to access the upper frets without any hassle.

  • Bottom Line

This guitar has metal written all over it. It was built as tribute to one of the biggest icons in metal, matching his primary guitar’s specs all the way through; it’s stripped down to be a straightforward and powerful metal machine so it’s recommended for metal guitarists only.

This guitar is available at Instruments Garage for $1350.
