    Overall score

    Construction.
    The Body its self is an Yamaha Aes body with customization done to it.Amir Derakh(Orgy) designed went to yamaha with a prototype of his custom signature guitar on the bands vapor transmission tour. The band soon was endorse by the company. The Aes ad6 and Aes Rs7 and drop 6 and drop 7 baritones.Yamaha announces the delivery of the 6-string Amir Derakh AES-AD6 and 7-string Ryan Shuck AES-RS7 signature electric guitars. Originally showcased at Winter NAMM 2002, the guitars earned praise for their blend of radical, high tech looks and classic silhouettes.Collaboration between Derakh and Shuck--best known for their work with alt-rock act Orgy--and Yamaha Guitar Development (YGD), both models feature a visually stunning appearance, yet can withstand the punishing demands of for rock, heavy metal, alternative and other harder music styles.. Body its light/alder wood bolt on Maple Neck.Unique headstocks and fingerboards painted to match body color.For the price that been sweet if theres a little more done to it,speaking in which Orgy has some wierd fucking guitars and gear in there aresnal.The guitar should of had a Led Frets on the fret board,But I love wierd designed guitars Parker,Andreas,EXT... along with my aes rs7 i own an old Roland g707 synth controller made in the 80s by ibanez. The Aes rs7 is well crafted yamaha production at its best!.Thoes fucking japs know how to build there fucking guitars.But the AES AD6 And RS7 are no longer in production.


    Playablity
    Overall this guitar does it all..Rock.Heavy Metal.Alternative music.Action is not to low on the guitar, but not to high the way i like it. I couldnt really tell you in compairson to other 7s after trying the 7321 which the pickups were horrid,and Schecter C7 hellraizer which was a good guitar but i didnt like it for some reason.Neck is smooth painted on both sides ..tuff part about this guitar is not leaving alot of finger print marks.

    Sound.
    The guitar i believe is Dimarzo Air Norton humbucker but in a interview about 3 years ago shuck was saying on his sig was going to contation a custom dimarzo humbucker with low gain. I love the tone on this thing first time plugging it up to a jcm at GC and it ripped. Clean Channel has a bright/mellow crips clear tone.It varys on the amp you use..i have at home old peavy from the 80s i forgot the name off top my head its all tube 75 watts tho. the guitar Sounds amazing with my amp.


    Overall i give it 9/10 due to the features and radical looks and design. I myself play industrial metal/alternative it suites the style well. My next guitar tho will be an RG that i want to customize kinda simlar to this with a reverse headstock.Okay basicly Dino cazares new signature model with dimarzo air norton and led frets and lil scuplture done to it.that would be my ideal guitar.

    Very cool. I don't like pickguards, but the overall design of that guitar is definitely growing on me.

    I wish they'd just used LSR tuners instead of doing odd knock-offs based on traditional post-and-knob tuners. At least they're locking.

    You're the first person I thought of when I saw it.

    I'm not even into these type of axes and I'd love to own this one.

    I dunno. That painted fretboard reminds me of those cheapo Westone guitars from the '80s with the bright red or blue fretboards. Remember those? I would think they'd get a bit 'sticky', like a laquered maple board on an old Stratocaster.

    I own two of these guitars, a rusty red and a black one, and they are one of the sweetest guitars that I have ever played.
