Amazingly sharp sound, even thoguh i use a crappy Peavy Blazer 150, I have used Marshall stacks and thsi guitar gives a brilliant sound. This guitar can play almsot all styles, but is stacked mre towards rock/punk/hardcore. Likes: Great vresatile sound, Lots of control over the tone Doesn't go out of tune for ages (unless you lpay REALLY hard for hours) ...list is endless really? Dislikes: ..None to be honest?

Overall Impression — 10
I've been playing for just over 2 years and have got pretty good really fast, I started off with a Yamaha Pacifica and when I first played this guitar in the shop...wow...the difference in sound was unbelieveable. If this guitar was ever lsot or stolen I'd leg it to the shop to get a replacement...that's how amazing it is... plus the 3 pick ups mean it can even rival the sound qualiy of the Gibson SG.

Perfect for live playing... Hardware seems like it will last forever and ever? Finish MIGHT start to wear but not for years...

Flawless guitar? What more can I say, the gold hardware make it look about 10 times the amount you paid for the guitar itself.
