Sound — 10
I play alternative, metalcore, punk. Sometimes melodic death. And this guitar suits perfect my music styles. I use Ibanez amp and Dunlop Doubleshot Distortion and DigiTech Death Metall. With this hardware this guitar is roaring like a lion. Like a real animals king. This guitar has a rich bright sound. With this guitar you can play any kind of music. And get any style of sound. Of course it's better to play with distortion. However it has very beautiful, warm clean sound.
Overall Impression — 10
I've been playing for 6 years. I owned and played a lot of guitars. But This guitar is awesome. Once I wanted to buy LTD. But now I'm happy that I've decided to buy this one. It's much better. And it's much more universal. And her outlook. If it was stolen, I would find that guy. Kicked his ass. And deffinately would buy another one in the same color.
Reliability & Durability — 10
Mine is black. And it's perfect in action. I've fell in love with this guitar only after 1 view. The strap buttons well pointed. And there are no disbalance (like in Epi SG). This is the only guitar I want to play. And the only one that I want to be in my hands.
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
From the factory guitar was setted perfectly. Any scratches or other problems. It is well done. And you can do anything on a stage and not worry that it will fell or smth like that. The pickups well adjusted. There are no sounds that don't want to hear. Only the voice of the guitar. It was without any flaws. You can feel a quality of this guitar.
