The Minarik Inferno Electric Guitar sounds just as fantastic as it looks. The Inferno devours other electric guitars with its blazing tone and silky playability. The solid mahogany, flame-sculptured body is crafted with tone chambers that make it resonant, surprisingly light, and comfortable with great balance. The flames on the lower bout of the Inferno Guitar are cut thicker and closer together on the bass side for greater lows and thinner and farther apart on the treble side for more highs. The body has shining abalone binding and the neck and headstock are bound as well.
Seymour Duncan pickups set into the quilted maple top provide the Inferno guitar with searing, brilliantly clean sounds and scorching dirty ones. The painstakingly well-finished frets provide a perfect playing surface for your fiery licks. The TonePros bridge gives sustain and spot-on intonation. The black finish guitar comes with chrome hardware, while the sunburst finish comes with gold. Minarik includes a custom case with the Inferno Electric Guitar.

The neck is clean and very fast, easy to reach the upper register. No problem with the stock pick ups. The finish for the price is very good. If you like sustain it will hang with any guitar. The tone for this type of guitar is excellent.Only problem, no Bigsby. If you want one you have to put it on yourself Minarik doesn't install any. The only change I made were the strings, I like Black Diamonds.
Having just spent the last four days demonstrating the Minarik range at the 2005 Frankfurt Music Show, I'm convinced of not only the visuals and build quality but also the playability. When you get beyond the way these stunning guitars look, you appreciate just how much thought has gone into the balance, comfort and tone of each instrument. I managed to get a huge tonal range from each guitar using a small value combo. The distortion tones were tight and defined while the cleans tones were punchy and sweet. I?ve been playing 20 years and these things impressed me that much I?ve just ordered a sunburst Inferno but don?t take my word for it, go try one for yourself.
I've had my Minarik for a little over a year and it's still kicking a$$.I was so pleased with the Inferno that I also bought the limited edition goddess guitar and I must say that the quality of both these guitars are on par with guitars costing twice as much!
I currently own three Minariks from their lowest model to their highest model, the Inferno falling right in the middle. The tonal range of the instrument is amazing. It has seemingly flawless tone for metal, rock, and jazz (yes, jazz). Despite the attention the looks get, it's the tone that keeps me picking it up. I'll play Minarik until my fingers fall off.
Of all the guitars which I have owned, this Inferno is by far the most dynamic looking and sounding of the lot. While I purchased it for it looks, its performance has exceeded by expectations. The Seymour Duncan pick-ups go perfectly with this axe. I'm able to get full range of sound on every song I play. And also for a guitar which appears as big as this is, it is relatively light. However the feature most desirable is the next profile. I've never had a guitar that felt this good at the neck. Rating a guitar all 10s may seem high, but this guitar has no downside, and will excite the player and audience alike. This guitar should be on the top of your "BUY" list, if you are any kind of a player.
I have two of these, one in the standard fire burst finish and another in the cracked mirror finish.Let me start by saying that this guitar has more versatility than any other I have ever played. I have extensively played and/or owned Dave Mustaine's signature ESP, several Ibanez Universes and even the legendary Jem BSB, and while they are all matchless at what they do, this axe can flawlessly perform alongside them all and more. The sustain is unreal, and the pickups capture every nuance of my playing.Speaking of the pickups, since it doesn't say this, they are custom jazz/distortion Seymour Duncan humbuckers with a 3-way selector. They sound every bit as good as any SD combo you can come up with. Undoubtedly, people will slam this guitar without even picking it up and say it's all looks with no substance, but they're dead wrong.The downside? Only one tone control. Other than that, flawless.
This Inferno guitar has almost everything I had ever wanted in a guitar. It has looks which keep the audience affixed to me on stage. It allows me to reach all of the notes and tones I want when I move into blues; and it is really comfortable to play despite its length. It actually feels lighter than my L.P. Custom which I think is due to its tone-chambering. There are a few goodies which I would have liked to have had, but I understand they can be obtained from the manufacturer on an after-market basis. This is a guitar which is perfect for a girl and lets her compete with the guys. Every girl should have one.
It was possibly the greatest guitar I have ever owned. The only change I made was that I put in Seymour Duncan distortion pickups. Great buy for a low price. This will look good on stage or on a wall.
This guitar has the looks but i'm not really sure about how it plays. My friend who is a serious guitarist who took lessons for over 3 years was thinking about buying one of these last year and I think since he thought it was a good guitar then it can't be too bad becuase he was gonna have this be his main guitar over a gibosn LP. The description for the guitar makes it seem like it's a great guitar. The features look pretty nice too because it's a unique shape and the pickups look like they can deliver some serious tone and the inlays are pretty cool. If I had the money I would seriously consider purchasing one of these.
I just got done hanging with Motorhead and Phil Campbell uses this guitar for the song Inferno from the new album. While talking to him at a private practice we started talking about this guitar, he has the black one. He got his tech to bring it over to me, I couldn't believe it, it's a great sounding guitar, great looking, well balanced and LIGHT! Looking at the guitar you would think it weighs a ton, but it doesn't. It's very comfortable. It's it's good enough for Motorhead, it's good enough for me. I'm ordering mine today. Cheers!
