Sound — 10
Made for metal/Norwegian black metal, the EMG's really pump the gain trough the roof, a little buzzing sound while the strings are open, but that's supposed to happen! I'm using it on a Fender FM100 trough Boss GT10 effectprossessor, witch I really don't need cause I wake my neighbors just by playing clean trough those EMG's.
Overall Impression — 10
Perfect match, Norwegian black metal. I've been playing for 8 years, my B.C. Rich Warlock and ESP Eclipse now cries locked in their case under my bed. If I somehow lost my knight, I would not buy it again, I would FIND MY GUITAR. There is nothing to hate and too much to love. I recommend a hardcase molded for ML's for safe transport, I kinda dropped my last MLX in its gigbag, dats all.
Reliability & Durability — 10
The guitar has withstanded live playing, believe me. Indoors 15-30 degrees celsius, and outside, in Norwegian wilderness, 15-35 degrees BELOW celsius, and dats no joke. This guitar will not need any backup, it will last the whole show by it self.
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
The guitar was brand new at arrival, Norwegian black metal now reached the next level. Everything was in place, Dean really got their job done with this godmade guitar.
