Dude, this guitar is sweet. The best sounding guitar I have ever played on. The sustainiac pickup is off the hook.

Hellraiser / Sustainiac

This takes you in to a new demention to work with .The Sustainiac takes some time to get use to, but after awhile you can really get creative . Great workmanship , setup was spot on ,Sweetwater takes care of that ! Floyd Rose holds tune fabulously . This was guitar # 16 and I think I've got it covered now .

Not Just for metal!!!!

I will get to the sustainiac part of this review in a bit...This write-up is for all the people on the fence like I was. So much press has been given to this guitar about how perfectly suited it is as a lead solo shredder that I was hesitant to buy it because I'm not a metal thrash god. Yes, I grew up playing Van Halen, Pink Floyd, AC/DC--So my playing style is classic rock/blues/ambient/lead oriented, but I'm still all over the map. If you're like I was and wondering if the guitar is right for you, let me put this to rest. If you are comfortable with active pups and a dual humbucker layout, this guitar has everything for you. From a rhythm players perspective it has it all; Wood chopping crunch, free flowing strumming.. this guitar is very bright and responsive and I could be very happy playing in the pocket all night. From a lead players point of view it's buttery smooth when you need it nice and slippery and if you're going to go all "Steve Vai/Paul Gilbert/Satch" it's quite capapable of melting everyone in the room's face off under the right gain settings! This guitar is effortless to play and I will say that I am very happy to add this guitar to my collection.The volume knob rolls down VERY NICE and cleans up quickly(LOVE IT). The tone knob works as expected and there's the third knob on there too...The sustainiac: The third knob is for getting a good leash on the sustainiac. Let me say it this way; This guitar throbs! It's a pulsating monster underneath the hood that's waiting to be un-caged!! And that's the beauty of this thing!! You can dial this guitar in EXACTLY the way you like it. AWESOME. I love having the intensity knob on there because there's moments when you are striving for subtlety and moments where you need more sing. A mini toggle activates the sustainiac while another 3-way toggle determines how it behaves.. Although I don't use the sustainiac a lot, I love having it at my disposal.I just might have to own another one if they unleash a color I'm fond of.. And, as always, I could go ON and ON about how awesome Sweetwater does setting these up before they ship.

The best guitar I have ever played.Overdrive is awesome and the sustain is sick.

I noticed right away I would love this guitar because of the feel of the neck,wow I was amazed at the ease of soloing and chording and the sounds from the EMG 81 bridge and the Sustainiac driver,are very ballsy.Thanks for building a guitar I can cherish.

Great guitar that will broaden your range

This guitar is extremely well made, great vibe, and fit and finish were excellent, especially at this price point. The setup by Sweetwater was very good. The thing I appreciate the most is how well you can get up into the upper registers. I have mainly played blues/rock/country and have never had a guitar that really gave you enough access to get comfortable up in the 15-24 range like this guitar does. I've played a long time, but I see a real opportunity to grow with the added access, the FR, and mastering the Sustainiac. The Black Cherry is awesome; I appreciate the way SW lets you see the actual guitar before you buy it. BTW- You will want the Schaller Ruthenium strap locks to go with the black chrome knobs and tuners, so SW needs to add this to their selections online.
