Another Winner From DBZ Guitars
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:
- Halcyon GX Monster
- Halcyon GX Death Dealer
- Halcyon GX Vertigo
- Halcyon Red
The Vertigo and Death Dealer also have USA versions with the following specifications:
Alder body, set maple neck w/ ebony fingerboard, 12th Fret Z
inlay, string thru with EMG pickups, Sperzel tuning keys and
nickel hardware and original Floyd Rose tremolo.
DBZ Custom Pickups
And, finally, the Halcyon Monster boasts a mahogany body and neck.
Note: All specifications are from the official DBZ Guitars website.
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!
Currently Available Models from Amazon...
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.
