Bought mint secondhand five years ago. I wanted a hollowbody to record some rock rhythm with.

The machine looks like a rockabilly dream, andit is, but to be fair the neck is quite fat and slow, isn't the easiest to shred on. Chrding however is perfect. The fat frets and low action force you to make good chord shapes and the chors resound beautifully. Tones are everything from clean rockbilly and jazz to distorted rock. Metal don't really work though as it feeds back at high levels of distortion.

A far better guitar than the oddball loks would hav eyou think.

This guitar is very cool looking online, and that's what prompted me to buy it for my son. Big disappointment. It looks cheap, it feels cheap, and it sounds cheap. The pickups are decent, but the trem is very sluggish, the neck is uncomfortable, and it's just not much fun to play. For the money, go with the Epiphone Les Paul instead, the quality is far better.

The flame kat is a kool kat

By Steve-o-8xhMJ

from San Bernadino, CA

I've been playing guitar for about 6 years now and I would like to say the the Flame Kat is one of the best guitars I own. I use it for everything! No matter what type of music you play if you play goth, punk, rockabilly, this guitar is for you. I love it, I would buy another if something should happen to mine.

Solid Road Axe

By John Neff

from Hollywood, CA

I own many vintage guitars, including a '61 Epiphone Broadway that I used on my record. I am not touring with that! So I looked around, settled on the Flamekat because it is fundamentally the same thing as my Broadway. It is a great guitar.

It's Great!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

This guitar is the ultimate guitar for rockabilly/psychobilly or punk rock. I even use it as a jazz guitar! Plays better than almost every guitar I've tried!!

Review

By Anti fashion

from Aptos CA

This guitar is great for playing anything from johnny cash to metallica to social distortion. It is plenty loud without the amp, and just look at the thing. It's one of the sweetest lookin' guitars i've ever seen.

I Love It!

By Nagrom

from Milpitas, CA

This is a great guitar. i got it for christmas today and it is a joy to have! the neck is a tad thick, and it is a pain to change strings, but if you want a great looking guitar for a good price, this is the guitar to get. it has a great sound and is very fun to play!
