Comments about Dean Michael Angelo Batio MAB4 Gauntlet Electric Guitar:

When I first got this guitar, it was love at first sight. The finish is absolutely astounding; appealing aesthetically beyond most guitars I've seen. Considering its price, the tone is amazing, even with the stock pickups. Now, you could trade out the stock pickups for something better, but in my opinion, it sounds just fine with the ones it comes with. I had no regrets on getting this guitar, it looked even better in person than it did in the images. The Floyd Rose was also a nice touch, keeping it in tune while you shred with some tremolo. I'm impressed with this Michael Angelo Batio guitar, and I'm also proud to say it's the best guitar I've ever purchased.

If you're really interested in playing fast and sounding good while you do it, this is definitely the guitar for you.
Some tracks that were "eargasm" worthy with this guitar:
Mr. Crowley - Ozzy Osbourne
Steve Vai - For the Love of God
Dio - Holy Diver
Iron Maiden - Powerslave
Van Halen - Eruption + Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love
Firewind - The Fire & the Fury
Dream Theater - In The Name of God
(And of course)MAB - Burn

Hopefully this gives anyone looking at this item an idea of what this guitar sounds best with playing. Might I also note that tuning this may be a chore, though it is very much worth it. :)
