Sound — 7
A little bit of rock and country the sound sticks out and is reliability is amazing but can't use with distortion and is loud at its average volume setting.

Overall Impression — 9
I play some classic rock some country and some rock and sounds good but depends on what rock songs you want to play.

Reliability & Durability — 9
Once again this is a reliable guitar the built in tuner only works when plugged in to a amp or a chord.

Action, Fit & Finish — 9
The body style is amazing but you can see all of the finger prints on the body the neck is nice and strong and smooth but I did recognize a flaw on the head or top off the guitar is a plastic piece that is supposed to be long enough to fit under the nut but doesn't quite make it but overall is a nice reliable guitar.
