    Look, I've seen the bland and nonsensical messes SSO think are wonderful. Don't let them kill your joy. Live your truth

    I'm embarrassed that Hetfield even signed his name on that hidious fucking thing... That's as bad as his Snakebyte Explorer. I love the Gibson and ESP Explorers, but that V is just... Nope.

    Look where that lower side would meet the fretboard if there were no cutaway... and then tell me again that this does not look totally wonky...

    I'd really love to see a Pat O'Brien sig like that one. Not exactly my list of specs but I'd love to be able to try one.

    He designed it probably is like he told a designer two or three things, the designer draws something up, asks do you like it? - yes - cool his new design

    My first V was one of these. Wanted to keep it because of the story around these but honestly hated the way it played 976C79F2-41F5-4848-89C9-199C6EDE1C0A.jpeg

    Neck-through Wizard II and made in Indonesia, there you have it. I had XPT700 and two RGT6EXFX's from same era, and they were kind of... how would you say, sticky with the thick gloss laquer. Acoustically very dead sounding instruments. Wizard II neck shape isn't the worst, compared to Wizard III, but still almost the same. It really depends what you compare them to, they probably aren't worst out there, but nowhere considered good or better either. Looks awesome though, again reverse headstock would be killer.

    That original Wizard II makes the old Schecter bat necks so much more playable. What an awkward profile ime.
