Now to the D&C X-Fusion Metallica. Body of metal, mahogany's neck, fretboard of dark indian ebony, Grover tuners, and of course the EMG James Hetfield signature set (active). This guitar is just pure guitarporn and nothing more and nothing less than that. Ultimately, it is the intention of Dennis that this guitar goes into James Hetfield’s direction as a gift. The guitar is wrapped a big huge and especially heavy flight case specially tailored for this guitar and on the case state the logos of Metallica and D&C. Also not just the guitar is in the case, but also a Diodak Ghost guitar copy of it. The top is in the shape of the Explorer and the bottom has the shape of the Snakebyte along with also a bit of the Ibanez Destroyer. Furthermore it has the skull logo on the body and various titles and quotes. Also are the names of the present members on the guitar including Cliff out of respect. This guitar sounds very different from the previous, logic because of the setup, but also sounds fat and smooth like butter.
Definition is good, sound is good and strange however that despite the metal instead of wood and the holes this can sound that good. Also check the video below here, where I on special request only play Metallica songs.
Is it art or is it a guitar that you can use on stage? The answer is both! The metal sounds different from wood, but certainly not better or worse. You would also think that the holes will give more feedback and that the guitar sounds like a semi-hollow, but actually, that is not the case. Also, since D&C is custom made, they can also be made with a solid body with for example Bareknuckles and there I would be quite curious about how that would sound... pedal to the metal! With a D&C you have a unique guitar that really is too cool for words and that is worth something. Check out the sites below for more info and pictures. Play metal with metal.
