Overall Impression — 10
I mostly play blues, rock, and ska and it matches perfectly. I have only been playing for about a year now and only have one amp and it isnt the best but it will do. I would buy this again as many times as I could if I were to get stolen. My favorite feature is the sound it put out compared to my old bass. I compared this to Rickenbacker, Yamaha and Brownsville. I wish it had the P and J bass pickups for more of a tone difference but it still sounds awesome.
Reliability & Durability — 10
This guitar would withstand live playing, I have only had it for a short while and it seems that this thing would withstand a volcanic eruption. I would always use this as my number one. The finish on it seems that it will last as long as any Gibson Les Paul.
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
The action on the guitar was simply perfect the pickups were perfectly in place and everything was flawless. Nothing was wrong with it, I just sat down and played like it was nothing.
