Sound — 8
This was my first guitar which I ever bought and I've had it for years now. It suits basically any genre but it was made for rock and clean music. It suits metal very well and I can get some good tone with it when you change the strings to 10 gauge. I'm using this with a Behringer LX-112 digital modelling amp and I can practically any tone I want with it. The sound can be very bright with the bridge pickup and there is a hell of a lot of feedback when the gain is max but that's usual for single coils. Great guitar for the beginner!
Overall Impression — 10
I play metal and this guitar does the job well, it's very surprising. I've been playing for years and own many other guitars but this was my first. If this guitar was stolen I wouldent buy another one 'cause it's only a beginner guitar. Really good value for money guitar and it's probably even better that the Squiers.
Reliability & Durability — 5
This guitar is not made for live and should not be used for live. I use my ESP for that and this guitar gets out of tune incredibly fast so don't bother with the tremolo. The guitar is made to last but it wont last forever. The finish I fantastic, it's been through hell and it's still rock solid.
Action, Fit & Finish — 9
Factory set-up was fine but I changed it my setting as soon as I got it. Gets rusty pretty quickly and the tremolo sucks very badly but it really doesn't matter for this guitar. Everything else was fine, maybe just chage the action and intonation.
