Sound — 10
I play any rock-metal. The amp that came with it isnt that bad at all but I sold it for about $60. It doesn't have as bad of a sound as people say they do. If you slighty bend the neck (Dont try to hard or you can break it) it'll make a small bend sound (learned from a friend and no it doesnt ruin the neck so don't get worried) and it's fun to flip around your body.
Overall Impression — 10
I play alot of metal and alot of hard rock. This guitar is a very good match. I started playin over a year and a half ago. I own a Fender Frontman 25A, Dean Dimebag FBD ML Tribute, B\.C\. Rich Mockingbird Evil Edge, Dime from Hell Wah and a DigiTech Whammy. If it were stolen I'd kick the persons ass thats what. If it were lost Id buy a new one for sure. I love almost everything about it. I like the way it feels when sittin down the most. I just wish it had diamond or cloud inlays.
Reliability & Durability — 10
This guitar can be played live for a couple of songs. The hardware will last for a couple of years for sure. The strap buttons were put on very well. I can depend on it for most gigs but I wouldnt use it without a backup 'cause I can't stand playing the same guitar durin a gig for more than 5 songs.
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
The guitar wasnt really set up that bad in the facotry. I changed the strings aftr a while to a set of Ernie Ball which made them sound good and then some Gibson strings which made the guitar sound perfect. The pickups were put in well but I just adjusted it a small bit and it had a better sound in it. I'm thinkin about puttin some EMGs to experement. I havent found any flaws in this guitar at all to be honest except the fact that you better use high gauge strings.
