Description & Specs

The Samick guitar factory has made guitars for well known brands such as Squier, Epiphone, Washburn, Hohner, Silvertone and more. In fact some of the most well crafted and most sought after and desired instruments from these brands were in fact made by Samick. So when it says Samick on the headstock rest assured that the quality and craftsmanship stand up against any other import brand on the market but at a lower price.

The design challenge with the METALHEAD™ was to create a uniquely aggressive looking guitar, in a format that would get players charged up for years to come. As it turns out, it’s harder to develop a radical look in a traditional format. That traditional shape is what makes the guitar playable and comfortable. The Metalhead packages the qualities of feel and playability with an edgy departure from traditional looks.

The cutaway horns are modeled after knife blades. Going on stage with this guitar is a little like going into battle. The set neck and the fixed bridge give the guitar rigidity to ensure great string performance, and the thin body depth reduces the weight, making it easy on the shoulder.

Duncan Designed™ pickups provide amazing tone and deliver all the unique performance qualities built into the Metalhead. Grover™ tuners make tuning fast and accurate.
