Sound — 6
This is not a very versitale guitar. Sounds great with metal like Metallica and Ozzy, but the sound is rather heavey and when you play stuff like Nirvana, Green Day, Led Zeppelin, and Blink 182. This is meant for metal, but it does ok with other types if you can tollerate the heavey sound. I give it a three overall, but if you just play metal, it can't be beat.

Overall Impression — 4
This guitar was a bad choice because it is meant for metal. I play a wide variety of music, so it didn't work out too well. It fell apart after just two months. If you play all metal, don't expect it to last more than a few days! Don't waste your money. If you need a guitar in this pricerange, buy a Squier. You won't regret it. Otherwise, save your money for a Fender. My advise to you: don't bother. This is a mediocre guitar.

Reliability & Durability — 2
Maybe I got a dud. The plug fell right out of it and broke to pieces. I tried to put it back together myself, but that failed. The nearest repair center is 50 some miles away, so now it's just sitting in my room collecting dust. I've had a Squier for more that a year and a half and it plays just like the day I got it.

Action, Fit & Finish — 4
The guitar played like a Fender. It was smooth, easy, and didn't have much string vibration. It's light but badly balanced. Hoever, it's put together like a piece of crap! It fell apart after just two months. I expected a lot better.

Features — 6
Decent enough. Dual humbuckers, tone and volume controls. An overall good fisrt impression. 24 frets. Looks sweet.

    My comments for the first review: I have the same guitar a few years, its still in one piece and 100% undamaged. it sounds great and indeed i play metal and hard rock, but when i play soft rock it still sounds great. be more careful with your guitar or buy one at a real store instead of some local junk-yard!!!!

    My comments for the first review: you gave that guitar a bad rating just because YOU PLAY PUNK and you dont play metal? how lame. . for starters, know which guitar suits your sound. . get a shitty squier instead. .

    First reviewer just needs to get another guitar from another brand. He plays kiddy punk rock, he bought a B.C Rich, which is well-known for its metal artistes, didn't like the heavy tones which didn't suit punk rock and gave this great guitar a bad rating? How "clever" can you be?

    The first reveiwer does not know how to take care of a guitar, has crappy taste in music except for Led Zeppelin, he probably cant play there songs at all, and finally, he has crappy enough taste to diss a warlock and buy a friggin squire! Those are good for starting on, when you get a REAL guitar, that will seem like crap! If you have a problem with what im saying, too bad
