Sound — 10
If you are looking for a metal guitar this is it. The squeels, bite, and screams you'll get out of this will mmake you feel like an instant metal god. Both lead and rhythm needs are met with the pick ups given. I have had no problems with excess noise or static. An amazing sound to match its incredible finish.
Overall Impression — 10
Overall this guitar is amazing. If you play metal like me, or just a fan Dimebag, this guitar won't disappoint you. Between all the parts that give the guitar it's amazing playability, and it's incredible show appearence make it well worth its price. It is a durable and superly aggressive guitar. I wouldn't trade it for any other guitar, especially one in the same price range.
Reliability & Durability — 10
Zero problems. I was careless with it once or twice and it got hit slightly, but it suffered no breaks, fractures, or electronical damage. It has proven itself to me as far as it's duriblity goes. I would have no problem taking this on the road. The case is great and would protect from anything else. The reliability is amazing. I take good care of it, and it doesn't let me down.
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
When I recieved on my door step it was ready to go. I plugged it in, adjusted a couple of tonel features on my amp to accompany the new setup. I had zero problems with this guitar when I got it and have never had a problem with it. High gloss finish is ready for the stage or to be displayed as part of a collection.

An amazing guitar with an amazing sound and bite. It has a licensed double locking floyd rose tremolo. It can manage great dive bombs, and awesome squeels. The one flaw I have in the whole guitar is with the tremomlo. The tremolo bar is threaded into the tremolo, instead of having that threaded cuff on it. The guitar has a Dimebucker in the bridge (of course). This has amazing bite, squeels, tone over all. The neck pick up will give a warmer bluesier tone and sounds amazing. I do use both for depending for the part of the song. The guitar has a set neck which gives it great sustain, and tone. Very fast action allow for fast solos. The explosion image and design of the guitar body looks so cool you'll find yourself fighting the urge to cranking your amp to 10. The special hardshell case that comes with it gives you the confidence to bring it on the road and not be worried about it being damaged by a careless roadie. This is a master piece dedicated to the master himself.
