Sound — 8
It suits my music style very well since I have such a broad taste in music ranging from classic rock to nu metal. I am using a Marshall half stack with a Boss Metal Zone pedal. On the rhythm setting the guitar provides a full rich sounding tone.

Overall Impression — 8
I play a vast variety of music and te guitar is a perfect match. I have benn playng for about 5 years and the only guitar I have owned that has outperformed this one is my Gibson Les Paul Classic. My favorite feature is the deep sunburst finish of the guitar. If I had to criticize it I'd have to say that itr is too heavy for long live sessions. The only thing I wish it had is a whammy bar.

Reliability & Durability — 10
This guitar has been played live and vigorously for over twenty years and it still tears apart the competition.

Action, Fit & Finish — 8
