Excellent guitar and specs
reefs 19.02.2021
This is an amazing guitar. The specs are great and it plays and sounds great. I love the colour (I got the pickle burst green). It came playable and setup out of the box (the intonation was good on 6 of the 7 strings and only a little off on the lowest string--despite shipping many thousands of miles). The only changes I'll make to the setup are preference things.

Cons? The neck is really thick. If you're used to Ibanez and Jackson necks or have small hands this may not be very comfortable. It took me a few hours to get used to it. There's a lot of minor finish issues. The fret ends are smooth but really ugly and sloppy looking. None of the finish issues affect the way it plays and I don't care at all.

Any changes I'd like? Wish it had a forearm contour.

My new favourite guitar
Mature Chedda Chee 12.05.2020
I haven't put it down since receiving it. I play in a band and also record my own music. The guitar requires next to nothing during mixing, it sits perfectly. This is probably due to the active EMG's, I've never owned EMG's before and I am very much converted since using this guitar. The satin finish makes the playing extremely smooth and overall I have no faults with this instrument.

The Big Bright Green Pleasure Machine
Rossbad 11.09.2021
Out-of the-Box war die Amarok-7 bereits sehr gut spielbar, hatte weder aussen, noch im Elektrikfach irgendwelche Mängel, einen geraden Hals mit perfekten, polierten Bünden und gut ansprechende Humbucker.

Ich konnte die 7 Originalsaiten oktavrein auf den 12ten und den 24ten Bund einstellen.

Die Saitenlage justierte ich auf knapp 1,5 mm unter der hohen E-Saite über dem 12ten Bund, unter der B über dem 11ten u.s.w. bis zu 1.5 mm unter der tiefen B-Saite über dem 6ten Bund.

Alles klappte rein routinemässig, perfekt und ohne jedes Problem.

Die hintere Wölbung der rechtwinkligen Oberkante der Decke habe ich bleistiftrund gefeilt und mit Zitronenöl poliert: Jetzt sieht die Amarok dezent geaged aus und mein Unterarm liegt auch in langen Sessions noch schmerzfrei auf.

Ich spiele die Gitarre an einem LeCrunch Röhren-Vorverstärker (erstaunliches kleines Ding) mit AKG-Kopfhörern oder meiner kleinen Marshall Kilburn II-Box und/oder meinem LD PA-System: In allen Konfigurationen liefert sie von Clean bis Zerre sehr differenzierte, lebendige Sounds.

Man sollte sich 9V-Blöckchen gleich mitbestellen - die mitgelieferte Batterie hielt nur 1 Tag.
