Sound — 8
It covers a very wide range. I like the crispy clean sound in all three pick up positions. Excellent for heavy metal or overdrive styles.
Overall Impression — 9
Great value for the money. Don't get mistaken by the price or just because it's made in China. This is a high quality instrument, with great sound and perfect as your first Precision guitar. As is, right off the rack on the store, it has perfect intonation.
Reliability & Durability — 9
This is now my main guitar and it endures long rehearsal hours like a charm.
Action, Fit & Finish — 8
I love the actions which is very low with no fret buzz. I change to new strings and re-adjusted the FR and it continues to deliver pure tone. I got the matte finish and I love the mean-looking feeling emanating from this baby. The actions is great, low enough for long hours our playing or jamming. Contrary to what a lot of people says in many forums, the Floyd Rose on this guitar is VERY stable. I couldn't easily make it go out of tune.

Please check the specs on the Charvel page for full detail. It is worth noting though the Floyd Rose, composite neck and active Seymour Duncan's Blackouts.
