The bridge Duncan is among that company’s hottest humbuckers and, as well as providing biting rhythm tone, it also enables solos to really cut through with an almost unmatched level of aggression.
The slightly more subtle HB-1 gives the guitar an increased level of versatility, but we assume that subsequent versions of the guitar will feature Dean’s DimeTime HB in the neck position.
The over-the-top cutaway gives perfect access to all frets and, although almost a dangerous weapon when played standing up, the Razorback is well balanced. Don’t turn around too quickly on-stage, though, as you could easily spear your bassist…
Pros: The gorgeous soft ‘V’ neck profile; killer sounds; looks great.
Cons: Not much. It might be just too spiky…
Verdict: The Razorback is already a classic design in metal circles and the quality Cemetery Gates graphic just adds more appeal.
