Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is very proud to offer up this Skervesen 7-string Raptor guitar with a beautifully figured poplar burl top!

This Skervesen Raptor is very appropriately named. The guitar is aggressive and super fast to play. If you're not careful, it could just bite your head off... But if you can channel the power of a true beastmaster, then all it has to offer will be at your fingertips. Blazing lead licks up and down the fretboard are a real breeze while complicated chord shapes are still easy to get every note to ring out perfectly. Even if this is your first foray into the world of extended range guitars, you're likely to feel right at home on this bad boy.

Let's not kid ourselves here, this is a shredder's axe through and through! Sure, it can handle a variety of playing styles, but it's begging to hit the front end of your amp hard and scorch the big stage. The Fishman Fluence active pickups are truly incredible. They're immensely versatile and provide you with a lot of very usable clean and overdriven tones. It's a perfect combination of technology that will help you without getting in your way. 

A simple control layout and gorgeous aesthetics round out this incredible sounding guitar. Whether you're lighting it up on the big stage or just jamming with friends, this guitar will impress both visually and with its killer tone.
