It suits a more bottom end of metal for rythem and less sustain than some other models. I use a Danelectro Fabtone with a Dean amp through two 12's (rippin good tone) your head romm is limited with a feed back problem at max tone not really too noisy but you'll get used to it. The guitar has decent tonal range for its design deep bottom end cut with a lot of tone wash at high ends. Sounds great!

Overall Impression — 8
This guitar is a decent match for me for my style (metal, rock). I've been playing for a few years and I wish I'd played this guitar before hand because I probaly would have bought a Omen 6 instead because I could sit down and play. Don't get me wrong I like the guitar but it's a good thing I bought it when I did my other guitar crapped out on me a week before. My favorite feature is the body style and design (tribal). The worst feature is the "crapbuckers" it's worth it to buy better pickups.

Reliability & Durability — 8
Sure it will withstand live playing as long as you know this guitar in and out, like the back of your hand, not the best guitar to borrow for a gig but you can play it for a while to get used to it you can't go from a Standard Strat to this guitar you'll fell ridicolous. I would use this guitar up front or as a back up.

Action, Fit & Finish — 8
If you've ever seen this guitar you'll know about the design, it's a simple guitar and simple to maintain almost no flaws found so far of course but there is always somthing that will bother a single person imparticular is just your opinion or your playing style i.e. you can't sit down and play because it's a V.

It's a 2004 or less made in Korea. Rosewood soloist neck with moderatly thin frets. V style body with Tune-O-Matic bridge and a bolt on neck, two BC Rich humbuckers and a 3-way Switch, two volume, and one tone control. The guitar came with a cheap bag, strap, head sweat, and some picks.
