Sound — 10
It suits my style perfectly. I play mostly metal but I do play some punk too since I am a fan of both. It sounds really great with distortion and I am very suprised at its clean tone. Very clear even on high volumes. Right now I'm using an Ibanez 15R 22 watt Practice amp but I'm getting either a Line 6 or a Marshall very soon. I'm using a Boss MT-2 distortion pedal and I have never had more fun playing guiatr. This guitar kicks ass but I still like the Shecter C1 Elite better.
Overall Impression — 8
Like I said before, I play mostly metal and this guitar matches that like blue and black. I have been playing for a little over 2 years. If it got lost or stolen, I would definently buy another one and I will beat the living hell out of whoever stole it if I ever find that person. I do wish it had EMG's, but the bdsm's are still good.
Reliability & Durability — 10
This guitar will definently withstand live playing. I can tell (it's that good). The hardware does seem to look like it will last and the finish will never wear off. I'll depend on this guiatr with my life at a gig so I wont be needing backup. I'm not worried about the strap buttons, just my strap.
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
This guiatr is set up perfectly. It's alot easier to tremolo pick while I palm mute on this guitar when I am standing, so yea, I like where the strap buttons are. I love the finish on it. The Brass City design on it makes this guitar unique. I have found no flaws on this guitar. The pickups are very good, but I'm still gonna replace them when I get the money. I also need a case for it since you can easily bump it on walls because of the wide body.
