Sound — 10
I mostly play metal rock and alternate and this guitar gets the sound every time. I plug it into my spider 2 15watt and it handles the distortion on the insane setting beautifully. Put it on clean and it sound amazing as well. The only problem I would say there is is tapping but that's mainly my fault since I'm a beginner. Overall it sounds nice and it can fit your style perfectly.
Overall Impression — 10
This is a good match for any style. This is my first guitar so I might be exaggerating. If it was stolen I'd call the cops maybe buy a Gibson Firebird or a new one. It has a nice look to it what I hate about it is that your have to buy a special case for it. I would recommend this guitar to anyone just keep safe and on a stand.
Reliability & Durability — 10
This guitar is very reliable I've banged it up alot and all I've seen are some minor marks and scratches. The strap buttons are well in place don't fall or make your strap fall. I would easily take this to a gig(if I was in a band) without a backup that's how confident I am about this guitar. I've had it for a while now and its still solid. The only problem like with any guitar is strings. Overall good.
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
The guitar is flawless unless you mess around the screws on the bridge then you'll have some problems. The pickups were well adjusted and overall good.

This is a Korean made Epiphone it has 22 frets on a mahogany neck. The neck is nice a smooth easy to play along the frets. There are 2 volume knobs and 2 tone knobs and a three-way pickup. The pickups sound amazing and they are protected by a small metal covers that make the guitar look even better. Mine is solid black which in my opinion looks sick.
