An affordable, playable and extreme looking electric guitar for modern rock and metal styles. The road to metaldom starts here!
The Metal X has a distinctive body shape and anodised black Korean parts and hardware. This electric guitar is a tremendous introduction to the world of rock and metal playing, at a very affordable price.
Play Music Magazine, September 2006:
"Gear4music pride themselves on the fact that their instruments are made to decent, playable standards. We'd go one further and say they've pulled off something spectacular: great looking and sounding instruments that feel as if they'll keep these qualities until you're ready to upgrade"
Paul Salter, Guitar Buyer magazine July 2006:
"The Metal X's aesthetics are spot-on for the right appeal."
"The neck is the most pleasing part of the Metal X, with its satin-finish and gentle C-shaped contour. This could easily grace a more expensive guitar as it's comfortably carved in a slender manner that feels familiar and well-proportioned."
"...those exposed coil humbuckers perk things up... they produce a surprisingly grown-up set of tones. The output is punchy and takes on distortion admirably, with a reasonably full tone that doesn't descend into mushiness as the gain increases."
"...the Metal X holds plenty of potential, bolstered by a likeable tone and the all-round fun image."
Great playability comes from the comfortable, slender shallow contour neck, while the basswood body provides sustain and full tone whilst remaining surprisingly lightweight and comfortable. The gentle side body curve also makes sitting to play this guitar a breeze, great for long practice sessions!
Twin open coil high output humbucking pickups provide a full tone, and respond to the distortion you need for modern rock and metal without becoming muffled or mushy - providing the sound you want as well as the look.
A dragon-slaying, sign-of-the-goat-making metal beast of an electric guitar!
