Artist Series ARZ400: Like playing a hearse...

Recently traded for a new ARZ400. Wow, the stock EMGs are really sweet, and the sustain is ENORMOUS. Going from a trem version with a bolt on neck to a non-trem with a neck-through really makes a huge difference. Felt like I could a note forever.

However, the sustain isn't the only thing that's enormous....I swear that neck stretches into the next county. And coupled with the jet black body, white binding, and inlay-free neck, I felt like I was playing a friggin' hearse all night.

Don't get me wrong--this is a great instrument. And if you want the LP look in a lighter weight, with a great metal crunch and enough frets to choke a mule, this one is for you. But just not for me.

Sigh...the search continues...
