This is a real metal guitar; looks like it and plays like it. I play also rock music, and the KKW does like it too! I am using it with a Conquest 15W amp and DigiTech RP200 effects (awesome). It does make some noise through the amp, but hey, it got the looks.
Overall Impression — 8
I am playing for 2 years now, and this is my second guitar. I would not buy this guitar again, simply because it is not complete. There are some practical minors, like the heavy headstock and rear mounted strap buttons, so I would choose another guitar. Afterall, this is a nice guitar for a novice guitar player, but not for a Pro.
Reliability & Durability — 7
I don't think this guitar will give any problems with live gigs. They only worry I have is the plastic pickups. I think this guitar wil last a couple of years on me. And I play the guitar for almost every day.
Action, Fit & Finish — 6
I find the special design (plastic) humbucker pickups a little cheesy. They don't give me a solid look, but they seem to work alright. Strap buttons are not placed very practical. They are both on the back side of the guitar, so the strap is suited in a strange spiral.
