Sound — 10
Mainly rockcovers of all kind. The guitars suites all styles easily. Play it on a HRDeluxe with Vox Bulldog Distortion. On the clean channel no noise at all. Light hum on the distortion. Easy to feed-back, just walk towards the amp and it begins screaming (totally under control). Neck pickup screams! Bridge pick-up has a creamy, full sound. Pick-up Switch inthe middle gives a kind of fase-effect, very useful and coolsounding on the clean channel. Don't think I need an other guitar. The pick-ups are Gibson, what else can I say.
Overall Impression — 10
It's a dreammachine for the bucks I paid. It rocks, screams, sings and whistles, anything you want. If you are looking for an astonishing value for money, this is it. Trust me it won't get any better. Be sure to thouroughly vcheck and play the guitar before purchase. It's Korea made and they tend to be sloppy at the details, nothing a good guitarstore won't fix but nevertheless.
Reliability & Durability — 8
Just purchased, time wil tell. Replaced the strap buttons with schaller straplocks (it's a Les Paul nearly 5kg). I trust that she will do her job for several years.
Action, Fit & Finish — 7
The guitar had a very poor pick-up and action setup at the factory. Everything nedded adjustment. Action, pickups. The 3-way Switch was poorly placed (loose)and of bad quality (was broken in fact). The top finish and bindings were flawless. The guitarshop adjusted everything to my wishes, replaced the Switch and adjusted the pickups. Now it's a "bomb" waiting to put fire to.
