I'd say try it out. I was looking at one not too long ago, went to try it out at GC. I thought it sounded and played great, but I hated the feel of the neck and it ruined the whole thing for me.

After i get a Blackheart, this is next on my list. I love the looks, and it does sound awesome. Good range of sounds. It is a little hard to play, since i've played a strat all my life, but still a great guitar. Although a lot of people do have issues with the neck...
