Brilliance

Marcel323, 30.10.2012
I had long ago an eye on an Explorer thrown and me more and more with the Snakebyte befriended. Delivery as always fast and easy, guitar unpacked everything heal? Optical yes. Then first agree and ran to the Amp (Marshall Class 5 + 1960AV), drauflos and then the disappointment, there rattles the strings up to the 10 Bund ....

I got a direct contact with Thomann, I should adjust the guitar, neck and strings. I have tried afterwards unfortunately not with the success I would have liked. So back to Thomann and check everything. Unfortunately, I had to wait a long time for the guitar ... string position was adjusted, frets were reworked and now it is reasonable playable.

The sound is okay, the EMG's do a good job, everything from the blues to rock and metal can be played out and the marshal (volume poti on 2) unleashes a beautiful crunchy sound without a pedal. The volume is also much louder than with my other guitars with passive customers.
Turning the volume potentiometer further on (4-6), then the EMG's show clearly what they can. Unfortunately, then only volume is possible to make one deaf, but that is not the guitar.

The playability is good, fast solies are possible, since you can really get off the hook. It is also quite unstable.

The processing is in my opinion in this price class not what I expect here, the paint has here and there a few small places, the transitions not worked neatly, with my guitar was not a final check in the factory, the strings clearly The rifles.

In the battery compartment, the cover is only screwed, as they could have adopted the solution from the ESP, plastic covers do not cost today, but nothing .....

All in all useful, but no bargain!

Long-term experiences have not been able to collect yet, I'm times strained how long the battery holds.

Metallica to the self

Inga H., 21.01.2013
When my dream finally was and the snakebyte arrived I noticed directly that the crease, in the lower part of the corpus, was not as clear as on the current picture.
Only at a certain angle are the reflections visible in the highly polished body.

Apart from this, the strong neck bend occurred in the first play.
I was very skeptical about whether it was intentional, but after a call and a little trial, it became clear that the Snakebyte is very playable!
Due to the high string position, playing techniques such as tapping can be performed very well.

The sound is exactly the same with the EMG pickups as James Hetfields, only the clean-mode sounds without effects almost as good as with passive pick-ups.

The guitar is full in the green area but not perfect!
Above the saddle I discovered a small gap in the lacquer.
Otherwise, the lower regulator was a bit crooked, but I was despite these little things very satisfied!

For all passionate Metallica fans this guitar is only recommended!
