A guitar with character!!

By trevellin, 15/08/2014
The Van Halen model was manufactured from 1990 to 1995 in the USA.
The one I was fortunate to test had a Floyd Rose, but there are some rare models with a fixed bridge.
Moreover, the guitar I tested had the particularity that its owner had a chamfer set under the Floyd, which standard models don't have. The Floyd rests on two screws that sit on top of the soundboard. As a result, you can really pull the Floyd and make the guitar scream as loud as ever!!
The specs of the basic models are:
- Basswood body with cutaway, white binding and flamed or curly maple top.
- Birdseye maple neck with 22 frets, maple fingerboard with black dot inlays.
- 2 Dimarzio Custom humbucking pickups.
- 4+2 Schaller tuning machines with pearl buttons.
- Chrome hardware.
- 1 volume + 1 3-way switch.
- Fixed neck or Musicman Floyd Rose-licensed tremolo.

Colors of the fixed neck: trans-gold, trans-purple, tans-red.

Colors of the Foyd neck: black, metallic gold, natural, sunburst, trans-black, trans-blue, trans-pink, trans-red, trans-purple.

UTILIZATION

The neck is chubby (it's very round!!), comfortable and you can do bends easily!!
What can be really annoying is that the body isn't chamfered, so it's a bit hard, but once you start playing you completely forget about it!!
Access to the upper frets is good.
This guitar has a sound with a lot of character!!

SOUNDS

I tested it with a mesa-boogie F-30 and it's so frickin' powerful!!
It's a true guitar for hard rock!!
It was a real parade of tricks in the store (tapping, sweep, legato) and everything was a real joy!!
And the tremolo!!
What delight!!
To make this guitar scream in a store full of people and having a guy come up to you and say "don't stop!! Keep on playing!!" Man, that feels good!!

OVERALL OPINION

I have tested it several times and each time I've had the same feelings, it has a sound that stands out from the others!!
I recommend people to try this model at least once in their lives because it's surprising and a great discovery!!
I have never taken it with me because it's pretty expensive, in comparison to the standard secondhand bargains (they wanted $3200!!)
It's a real quality guitar, a one-of-a-kind!!
It has a character that won't leave you indifferent, either you love it or you don't!!
I think it's a guitar that is very faithful to the sound of its creator: Brilliant, with presence and unique!!
Personally, I was ecstatic with it!!
