Sound — 7
I play lots of different music, mainly funk rock and classic rock. It suits my style quite well. I use the Aria AG10 amp I got with it, which is. Ok, but not excellent. Quite a bright sound. Distortion is suprisingly good, abd cleans are, well, clean. Nothing remakable.
Overall Impression — 4
I've been playing about five months, but I had to get another guitar after about four months as it broke. If it was stolen or lost, frankly I wouldn't care. I would not get the same guitar again. I really don't like the fretboard, which is extremely flat, so its quite uncomfortable playing chords. Overall, I don't like this guitar.
Reliability & Durability — 5
I've never played live, but this guitar's electronics are NOT reliable. They gave up after about four months.the strap buttons are solid enough. I would definetley not play it without a backup. The finish isn't great as I said before. In general it's not such a reliable guitar.
Action, Fit & Finish — 4
Action was terrible when I got it, and I had to adjust it to get anywhere near good. Pickups were fine, didn't have to adjust them. The finish smudges and scratches easily and wasn't of the best quality. The fretboard was scratched when I got it, but not seriously.
Features — 5
Strat style alder body. Maple neck. Rosewood fretboard, 22 frets. Floating trem bridge, which is ok, but not excellent. Volume knob, 2 tone knobs and a 5-way pickup selector. Got an amp with it, which is ok. Also got a strap, which isn't reliable, as more than once it has loosened and my guitar has nearly whacked off the ground. Got a gig bag too. 3 single coil pickups.
