I'm a massive Metallica fan, and I have wanted the Snakebyte ever since I saw James use it live. For those into Metallica and thrash Metal this guitar ticks all the boxes.
I mainly use it Jamming out at home and recording with my band, with the occasional gigs on the side for when it gets heavy. The het set EMG pickups definitely achieve this offering the power and high gain tones you would expect from active pickups, yet with much smoother clean tones.
In terms of a Metallica sound, the guitar is a 5/5. However if on occasion you want to turn down the gain for something lighter then i feel the pickups struggle to achieve a passive sound. I find the only con is the lack of tone dials on the guitar, as it only has volume. The build quality is good, with the guitar feeling very solid, not something i'm afraid to rock out on when on stage.
I'm overjoyed with this guitar, and in terms of recreating your favourite Metallica setlist, you can't go wrong.

SIMPLY AWESOME!!

08.07.2016
What an awesome guitar. Sits really well, easy to play, the pickups are tremendous for rhythm and still offer some articulation although it's not it's strongest feature, at least for me, which is why I believe this is the perfect complement for my Dean VMNT, which is a totally different beast.

It cleans up really well, and is an all in all best buy. I just wish it had come with a set of Hetfield strings rather than the standard string gauge.
