Sound — 6
It sounded ok. I don't applaud it because it doesn't deserve applause. I mean, it sounded ok. I play Metallica, Megadeth, Sabbath, Maiden, stuff like that. This guitar's shape fit the style perfect. It was wicked looking, but when I played it, it was like my heart sank because it looked so cool and I couldn't wait to play it and it really didn't sound amazing.
Overall Impression — 6
Like I said before, I play metal, and this guitar looks awesome when you're playing a fast, heavy song, but I wasn't impressed much with the sound. (That's what you buy a guitar for right). If I lost this guitar, I would not buy a new one of the same kind. If you want a sick looking guitar that sounds great, spend the extra 200 bucks and buy the Kerry King Signature model. (I wish I would have).
Reliability & Durability — 8
The guitar is about as durable as any other guitar I guess. I mean it took a few bumps and bruises through its experience with me, but it came out ok. (I think) I would definately bring a backup with me to a gig because of the way the bridge is setup. The strings don't break, but the 5th and 6th strings "uncoil" around the center spindle.
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
The guitar was fine from the magazine I bought it from. No flaws or anything.
Features — 6
The guitar had 24 frets. Some double coil pickups that said BC Rich on them so I don't know what kind they were. Basswood body (insane-looking by the way). The bridge made the strings really far away from the body. Like probably close to an inch or so. It felt different at first. I bought the package so it included a gig bag, strap, cable, tools, and some pics and stuff.
