I played one for a few minutes about a year ago at a guitar center in NYC. I wasn't very impressed; the neck wasn't to my liking, the frets were a bit sharp, and it had the stereotypical GC rusty strings/bad setup. I'm sure there is considerable variance between these, so i would have to play more to get a real opinion, but i just don't dig it all that much anyway.

I played one last year as well, played pretty nice and sounded okay as well. I just couldn't get past the knives as being REALLY gimmicky, give me regular f-holes and I would consider.

If I was in my 20s, I'd probably be all over it. But a guitar with knives in it doesn't suit a 40 year old guy well. I know, I know -- its all about the playing and the tone. But I also don't want to look like a dick on stage, I already look stupid enough as it is and don't need my guitar to perpetuate that image any more. :D

I am 18 and I wouldn't want to play it. I don't like the daggers either.

Did you listen to the clip I posted? That was done with the stock BDSM pickups. They are actually GREAT for clean tones or mild distortion. Under high gain they lost definition though so I changed mine for a Pearly Gates and an Alnico Pro II.

I have just recently bought one yesterday, by luck of course since I didnt even know these existed. I was actually looking for an ironbird but regardless, stock pickups are only good for clean. I switched them out for emgs (81/85) but I just dont get why people like the daggers? I actually like them 😂. You don't see many differences on guitars besides pickups or bodies so I think that since it has the holes shaped like actual knives, it adds a bit of character. Better than any sword shaped guitar I've seen 😂
