Needless to say, that's an awfully nice axe.

What do you think to Warren DeMartini, btw? I always thought he wanted to sound like Lynch.[/QUOTE]

Dude, Warren was/is killer!

I loved George and Warren's playing.

Anyone see these?

Charvel had these in 2006, but...

Getting back to the GL topic the Hunter is actually one of my all time faves, I have heard a lot of guys trying to play the riffs and the solo and they just can't nail it!!! same goes for tooth and nail that one is a TOUGH one but practice can tame any beast, I learnt both the live and the studio version, another one of my faves is MR scary LIVE with the extended guitar solo intro that one is a SUPER TOUGH to play, Paris is burning is another good one with that guitar solo intro! (in reality I love playing ALL Dokken tunes can't you tell? ) One of these days when I go to the UK I've got to get together with all my Jemsite mates to Jam and we'll star with some Saxon
I absolutely love the 'Breaking the Chains' solo. Supremely tasteful licks. It's fairly easy to play too.

Cool. I didn't know it was TAPPED. That's where I went wrong, I was picking it. Cheers.

I believe RATT and Dokken are 2 of the best 80'S bands!!!
Agreed about Warren. Great player.

What I thought.

I was about to buy one online, but everyone told me that if you don't have really large hands the guitar is a bitch to play with the long scale and 22 frets.
Someone (or everyone, in your case) definitely got it twisted, for sure. Why a 25.5" scale guitar with 22 frets would be hard to play... I have no idea. And anyway, I didn't have no problem when I tried the Kamikaze 1, though admittedly that was 19 years ago, I remember enjoying it. I love 'em. Too pricy for what they are though.
