The guitar also features a maple neck with an ebony fingerboard, a Floyd Rose locking tremolo with a 34mm brass block and spring silences, a Buzz Feiten tuning system and Duncan Designed Blackout humbuckers.
"I was playing these guitars tracking for the new Stryper album, so yes, I really use my own guitars!" Sweet of the instrument.
"It's got the Seymour Duncan Design Blackouts, which are what I use, and they sound fantastic," he . "If my name wasn't on this guitar, I would still rave about it. It's fantastic, and it sounds and feels and plays like a much more expensive guitar."GENERAL
