Good things first: this guitar feels and plays incredible, finish and fretwork was flawless, action was perfect out of the box, intonation was spot on, and the flame top is beautiful, the upgraded tuners are stable and smooth. I have wanted a DC style guitar since I saw the masto-bros and Matt playing them in 2011(?). This guitar is underpriced for the quality and I would buy it again.
The cons for me:
– The pickups and wiring are the biggest challenge I have, the neck and middle position are incredibly muddy (clean, gained up etc), almost like there is a mid frequency scooped out. It sounds almost like the tone knob is rolled off. The signal is so intense you have to roll the volume back to 2-4 if you are playing into anything that doesn’t have infinite headroom or you will start clipping. This all may be by design with lace, but it feels like neck and middle are either warm-fuzz only positions and a missed opportunity for a 3 pickup guitar.
– Issues with the wiring – after playing it for a few weeks the neck position randomly stopped working and there is barely any signal coming through. Not sure if its the switch or the harness – going to have to take it to a tech to fix.
– 7th and 9th inlays arrived split through the middle of them. Can see it happened in the factory and was glued and sanded down, aesthetic only, but it’s annoying to see every time you look at the fretboard.
Overall I still love this guitar, despite the limitations of the pickups and QC issues from the factory. Incredible value for what you get. Thanks for making this possible, Steve!

This is the guitar from hell.
I’m going to keep this short .
It’s a phenomenal beast of a guitar and is incredibly versatile.
It’s an incredible weapon of doom but also a very versatile guitar When switching between the massive earth-shattering tones with the Pikester Firespitter pups, you get a load of tones when you dial back on tone & volume. I’ve found these “ Hell on Earth pups to be incredibly versatile.
I want another one.
Just buy one of these; for this price tag, you’d be insane not to.
I can’t believe you get this fuckin beast for the price tag.

Thanks so much Steve, Matt & all those involved.

The bottom line is that this guitar is killer. The fit and finish are absolutely flawless, and it arrived in perfect condition. The inlays look amazing, the neck is smooth and fast, and the crimson burst is such a great color. It’s also nice to get a Woodrite-branded case, too. I already own a gold burst Warlord and a Switchblade, so I knew what to expect, and I’m not disappointed at all. These guitars are just as good or better than my USA-made Gibsons and PRS. The Firespitter pickups are very different from the Woodrite Barbarians, which is awesome for me because I have ample reason to play both guitars now. The firespitters are very hot and dark but they maintain clarity and crush my pedals and amps. The middle position is so thick and heavy. It just kills. If DiD does another run of these, get one before they sell out, even if you already have a Warlord. You’ll be glad you did.
