Pro Active pickups
With this kind of pickups, the output signal to the amplifier is more “warmer”, that gives you the opportunity to get more distortion or more gain without additional pedals and boxes. Sound that produced by EMG 57/66 is extremely clean and this set of pickups has high noise reduction.
Pro Reliable tremolo system
This guitar is equipped with reliable vibrato machine. The main advantage of the Floyd Rose tremolo system is its double-locking construction that allows the guitar stay in tune.
Pro Soft bag included
Pro Great pickup combination
This guitar can go from pure clean sound to heavy and maintained clarity.
Pro Locking tuners help to keep the tuning stable
By locking the strings to the tuner, it reduces the amount of string slippage due to use of tremolo bar.
Con NO Hard case included
Con The Judas Priest symbol on the headstock
Con Set-Thru neck construction is leads to a higher servicing costs
Con Very clean sound and reduced mount of guitar body noise
This is not always a good thing, because low noise capturing will affect the output, and this will results in a “sterile” sound.
Con String break makes guitar out of tune
Player can both raise and lower pitch with vibrato bar. However, if a string breaks, the balance of tensions on the bridge is disrupted, leaving the bridge out of position and therefore the guitar is out of tune.
