This Skervesen Raptor is very appropriately named. The guitar is aggressive and super fast to play. Blazing lead licks up and down the fretboard are a real breeze while complicated chord shapes are still easy to get every note to ring out perfectly. Let's not kid ourselves here, this is a shredder's axe through and through! Sure, it can handle a variety of playing styles, but it's begging to hit the front end of your amp hard and scorch the big stage. The DiMarzio Titan pickups have a mid-range bump to them so that your sound will remain articulate no matter how much distortion you saturate it with. The neck is slim, thin, and lightning fast. The bubinga and wenge combo also help to produce a super focused and punchy mid-range response. The fretwork is immaculate and allows for extreme bends without fretting out, two-handed tapping without exhausting your fingers, lightning fast shredding up and down the neck, and chugging rhythms. The heel is contoured for easy access to those upper frets so you can really get as high up on the neck as you need to. A simple control layout and gorgeous aesthetics round out this incredible sounding guitar. Whether you're lighting it up on the big stage or just jamming with friends, this guitar will impress both visually and with its killer tone.
The Raptor 6 is the most popular model in the Skervesen line - a versatile instrument of classic design.
