Normaly I play Heavy Metal but also Jazz and Blues and this guitar suits all these Styles great! I'm using it throught a IMG Stage Line 40 Watts and if you turn the Gain, Shape and Presence fully up, this guitar is a Heavy-Metal-Killer! And if you change to the Clean-Channel it Sounds great too!
Overall Impression — 9
If somebody would steal this guitar I would probably buy it again. For a guitar in this Prize-Class its a great guitar! I love at this guitar the great look! I love at this guitar also the absolutly Bada-s Headstock! There is only one thing I wished it had: A Factory-Installed Tremolo. (Sorry for the bad spelling, I'm German).
Reliability & Durability — 8
The hardware of this guitar will surely last sometime. The only thing I'm worried about are the the controll-knobs. They seem like they wouldn`t survive a fall from a greater hight. The Strap-Buttons suck, because the strap keeps slipping out of the buttons!

Well, first I want to say the Fretjob at this guitar is AMAZING! The pickups were ajusted ok and the Tune-O-Matic Bridge is great too. Just the Tone- and Volumecontrolls were ajusted a little sloppy. A great Minus at this guitar was that it didn't come with a Tremolo. A good thing was that there aren`t any Factory Flaws at my model.
