Sound — 8
The sound is great for such a cheap guitar. I originaly bought it to practise with, and as a bass to play live. I play mostly Metal/Rock. The sound is great, even with the amp that it comes with. Its clean, Smooth, and very loud. There is not much variety, but with what it DOES come with, I don't see why you would need more than it already has.
Overall Impression — 8
I have had this guitar for over 2 years now, and its still in great condition. I love this guitar, I plan on using it untill its nothing but sawdust and chrome peices. It sounds great, looks great, and it was reasonably priced. I don't think I would buy another one.
Reliability & Durability — 9
This guitar would be good for something like a Coffee House, and I beleive it would do good at something bigger. The hardware is great on this, nothing out of place or damaged. The base strap button did fall off though, it is a heavy guitar and I can understand, but I wasn't particularly pleased with that. As far as playing it goes, I'm sure that even if you did drop it, it would leave no more than a scratch. It is a pretty thick finish.
Action, Fit & Finish — 9
The finish is beautiful. A nice black, and very shiny and smooth. The pickups are good. It has a great setup, its a solid guitar. It had no flaws when I bought it, but it did fall a few times (hyperactive puppy running around like a psycho) and it did scratch the back, so I'd say be careful and put it on a good stand, but besides that, nothing.
