Rare Electric Guitar

The  LTD Alexi-600 has 24 frets, alder and a maple neck which is one of the fastest necks I've ever played. It also features a very shiny ebony finger board which gives of a very clear tone. it has one volume controlling the single EMG Hz fh2, unfortunately it's passive but I think it would be a shame to change it. Grover tuner (black) and neck through body. Overall it is very nice.


Sound: I do a lot of down picking and legato techniques and I enjoy playing things such as cannibal corpse, Arch Enemy etc. and it really does respond well. I run it through a mesa/boogie dual rectifier and in terms of effects I use a Ibanez tube screamer for distortion sounds and a Boss super overdrive for solos. I have various other delays and chorus but I tend not to use them. The EMG pickup (passive) is not my favored pickup as I usually play active pickups but it's good for what it's worth. There is hardly any fuzz or any other noises and it's great for noise-gate stuff. if you turn down the volume you get a sweet bluesy sound a crank it up again and if gives you that ballsy almost les Paul tone. Apart from the pickup it's awesome!

Action, Fit & Finish: I didn't have to set-up this guitar. it already had a low action. it's neck-thru, which rules, and it's got no finish on the neck so it's extra fast. The FloydRoseBridge was setup just right and from what I can see it has no dings or scratches. My one is white with black pin-stripes but you can get it also in black with yellow pin-stripes. Although I'm giving it a good a good review in this department so far it did have a very loose volume pot which was SSSOOO pissing me off!


Reliability&Durability: This guitar can take a beating and keeping going, the floydrose really holds up with what I throw at it, from dive bombs to palm muting. The hardware seems to keep up. I truthfully would depend on it if I had to gig with it. The previous owner installed Dunlop strap locks on it to insure that it can't have any unexpected accidents when attached to a strap.

AMAZING!!! This guitar is from hell. Complete B.A. I wish the guitar case was lighter. Boy is it a work out carrying the case. I received comments like is that a coffin. The case is huge. But never the less I'm 5'8'' and weigh around 130. I'm sure that has something to do with its weight problem. The onl other downfall is the stock EMG p.u. Not that big of a deal though. Just get it replaced. The stock pick up sounds scretchy and warm. there's not enough ummphh.
