Guitar Interactive Reviews the BMG Arielle

Nick Jennison, regular GI contributor, producer, music educator, and axeman with NWOBHM stalwarts Blitzkrieg, discovers much to love about the "totally unique" BMG Arielle in the latest edition of the online magazine, including its "bold, striking design", "super-premium hardware", "rock solid tuning stability and "incredible tonal versatility", and comes to the inescapable conclusion that "you're getting a whole lot of guitar for the money".

The accompanying video, in which Nick dives deep into the astonishing range of tones available from the BM-designed switching matrix – from atmospheric clean picking to crunchy rock riffage and full-on, cranked-up, screaming lead – is a superb, comprehensive primer for the myriad, dizzying delights of this characterful instrument.
