You would think a guitar with one pickup and one dial for volume would not have versatility in the sound options. But it does, really. Depending on how you pick, strum or fingerpick closer to the bridge or neck. It has a real hot pickup to overdrive a tube amp seriously. If you want clean, just cut back on the volume on the guitar. The dial says "Tone" but it is a volume dial. Having to explain that to some people about Eddie's sense of humour and desire for tone is exhausting. The clamped Floyd Rose tremolo system is what you expect, dive bombing and coming right back to pitch. Can't do that on any other Strat unless you have Yngwie Malmsteen's (brass nut) or Jeff Beck's (LSR ball bearing nut) guitar techs standing by. The basswood body is nice and light and resonant. The compound radius maple neck/fret-board is smooth, fast and ready for massive bends, hammer-ons and tapping. The look of this color scheme is by far my favourite. Don't need a pickguard. I got a decent hard shell case for this guitar as it does not come with any kind of case to keep the initial cost down. I don't use the drop-D tuna system much. My bad. The sound is amazing. Depending on the gain, you can make it sound like a Rickenbacker, a Les Paul or totally Eddie. I am happy with this guitar as a go-to guitar for a gig. It stays in tune. With equalization and processing you can make it sound like an acoustic but with a whammy. Then hit the high gain patch or channel and you have Eruption, if you can play it. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to Rock.
