Sound — 10
The style of music that it suit best in hard metallic sounds and it believe it or not it also works well if you want to get a blues sonund out of it. The effects that I am using on is a Zoom 606 pedal and it realy does have sum shit settings on it but most of then are good and you can get some great sounds out of it. I'm also using a Marshall Valvestate 8080 and its a second hand, but it does still blow your hair back.
Overall Impression — 10
Hands down nothing is wrong with it and well it's been compared and nothing matches it. And looks great.
Reliability & Durability — 10
It's the most reliable guitar that I have ever played (others: bc rich beast, Ibanez ice man, Gibson Explorer) it the strap buttons are solid and they dont move at all. I could use it on a gig with out a back up. The hardware looks durable after two years.
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
The guitar is set up as a full all in one carbon guitar. The neck has a maple finish. The pickups are at the exact place on the body. A nice finish that you could add on is a diamond plate pick gaurd and it looks so good and it also looks good when playing metallica.

The Flying V goth series is a master peice and every thing about is fucking exelent. It was made in 1958 and it has 22 frets and it is is solid graphite all in one. It has two humbuckers one near the bridge and one near the neck. It has a black finish but mine has a diamond plate pick gaurd on it. The neck is a fat maple neck. Mine came with a brown solid gig bag.
