Sound — 10
I normally play rock or classic rock. I also play jazz and this guitar suits me perfectly. I am using a Marshall MG30DFX and a Zoom G2.1u guitar effects pedal and it sounds great for its price. I usually set the tone knobs to 10 and it's distortion is great. The clean sound is decent. This guitar suits every kind of style of playing.
Overall Impression — 10
My overall impression about this guitar is that this guitar is very good. I've been playing for 8 months and this guitar suits me perfectly. It is ideal for beginner or intermediate guitar players. If it were stolen or lost, I'd definately buy another Les Paul 100. What I love most about this guitar is it's playability and it's finish and what I don't like about this guitar is its strap buttons. I compared this guitar with a Squier Strat and this guitar wins hands down. I wish that it had the Mother of Pearl Trapezoid inlays instead of Dot inlays on it's fretboard and I hope that it had EMG pickups with it. Lol. I really recommend this guitar for anyone that has a tight budget and really want a good guitar at this price.
Reliability & Durability — 9
This guitar will withstand Live playing as long as you take good care of it. The hardware seem like it will last a very long time. Perhaps you might wanna put strap locks on it because it's stock strap buttons is not very good. I would use it on a gig and without a backup because I definately can depend on this guitar.
Action, Fit & Finish — 9
This guitar was set-up pretty good at the factory. The action was a tad high for me and the pickups are in good shape. Everything else is perfect except for a big scratch on my pickguard. It has Dot inlays and gold volume and tone knobs. I love it's finish and it's headstock.
