Scored this mint Blackmachine B6 (Feline obvs) a good few weeks ago. It's a pretty cool guitar. First thing that strikes you is how light the thing is, really surprising when my stable includes a lot of mahogany bodied monsters.. Very well made guitar and rings out loudly unplugged. Plays effortlessly with a wonderful neck carve, slim but not Original Wizard slim. I really love the ASL Blackbird pickups (designed in collaboration with Doug Campbell). They have amazing sustain and exceptional clarity, I tried them through some real high gain settings and every note rings out clearly even when playing full 6 note chords, they are however quite unforgiving in that they are super sensitive so do require you to be on top of your muting etc. Coil tapped as well so the guitar has some lovely sparkly cleans and glassy strat tones. Very impressed with them...def BKP quality at much more affordable prices. Few things I didn't like: The guitar has a very thin coat of lacquer on it and by thin I mean you'd think someone gave it a quick once over with a spray can, no doubt in an attempt to help tone but your fingernails would mark this pretty easily. The jack socket placement sucks, especially if you are prone to practising a lot in the 'classical position'. Fretwork could be a bit better, I can feel too much of the fret edges when running my hand up and down the neck, nothing sharp trust me but def not J Custom fret finishing. Frets are also too low profile for me and the fret job overall feels like something on a late 80's/early 90's RG. I'd be much happier with Jescar Super Jumbo for sure and in stainless steel. That however is a custom option so the guitar does not lose any points for that. It also looks a little bland, very organic looking yes but I would love to see more options on these when it comes to tops and finishes. All in all a very good guitar, well constructed and very user friendly being so light with great playability and a real tone monster. Build quality def not on par with my Daemoness, J Customs or other USA Customs I have. Dare I say it but I have Ibanez RG7XX series which would run this thing close and an RGA121 Prestige which ain't a million miles away either. Would I buy another? Yes at the right money, it's nice instrument, feels a little fragile due to the weight but a great player...still not in the top 20 guitars I have owned though.
