DBZ Halcyon...
Another Winner From DBZ Guitars

Halcyon Vertigo DBZ Halcyon Vertigo

The DBZ Halcyon is another winner from DBZ Guitars' Darkside of Dean collection. The Halcyon is a modern interpretation of the classic "superstrat" body style optimized for modern Metal. Like its Darkside brothers the Bird of Prey and The Venom, the Halcyon electric guitar is loaded to the hilt with EMG pickups, original Floyd Rose Tremolo, easy 24-fret access, and set-neck construction. It's available in high impact colors and radical off-the-hook graphics, including the Vertigo and the Death Dealer.

The basic specifications of the Halcyon are:

  • Construction: Set Neck 25.5" scale
  • Body: Alder
  • Neck/Fingerboard: Maple/Ebonized with Darkside inlays
  • Frets: 24
  • Pickups: EMG 81/85
  • Tuners: Grover
  • Electronics: Vol/Tone/3-Way
  • Hardware: Black
  • Bridge: Floyd Rose Original Double Locking Tremolo

For 2010, the DBZ Halcyon comes in 5 versions:

A Great Demo For You...

As always, I like to find video reviews or just demos so you can see and hear the guitar. This is a cool video I found on YouTube:

I would like to have seen him add a bit more bass for a darker tone but, regardless, that is one Rocking Metal Guitar!

If you have spent much time on this site, you know that I prefer the pointy, weaponish looking guitars to the more traditionally styled guitars. However, I would gladly add the Halcyon Death Dealer, Vertigo and Monster to my collection.
