Sound — 8
It seems to suit most styles. I mostly play alot of rock and it sounds good the vast majority of the time. I play it through a Zoom G2.1U multi effects unit and a Roland cube practice amp.the guitar can sometimes be a bit noisy but usually it's fine. It has quite a full sound. You can get lots of vareity between the 2 pickups.
Overall Impression — 10
I mostly play rock and it sounds good for this. I've been playing for 4 years. I also own a cheap Strat copy and two acoustics, a Zoom G2.1U mfx unit and a Roland cube amp. If it was stolen I would buy it again. I love this guitar. There is nothing about it I hate. I love the way it looks sounds and feels.
Reliability & Durability — 8
I haven't playedd this guitar live yet but I would say it'd be ok. The hardware seems pretty good but you can some times have a problem or two with the jack socket. As i've said before the strap buttons are fairly crap. This guitar is very dependable. The finish seems quite hardwearing.
Action, Fit & Finish — 9
This guitar has great low action, without any buzz (most of the time!). The pickups were very good, I didn't have to make any adjustments. The only thing I could find wrong with it was a pair of really awful strap buttons, but a pair of strap locks sorted that out.

I don't know when this guitar was made, but I would say it is recently. I think it was made in Indonesia.It has 22 frets, I'm not sure what type. It has a bolt on mahogany neck and an alder body. My one has a black finish which seems to stand up to wear and tear well. Iit's body is modelled on a '67 SG. It has a tune-o-matic bridge.Volume and tone controls for both pickups. 3 way selector switch. 2 open coil humbucker pickups, not sure what make, but nothing too fancy. I don't know the brand of tuners but it seems to stay in tune well. I bought it on its own, I think a cable might have come with it but that was it.
