Sound — 10
The sound is awesome, I have 5 Fender guitars from a 1961 Strat to $1, 700 custom Strat and this LP100 sounds better than any of them. I play Lead Rock and Blues and the occasional chording melody and the LP100 comes through every time. The range from clean to distortion is great.
Overall Impression — 10
I love this guitar, from the feel of the neck, how well the strings are centered on the neck, the action is smooth, the sound in both clean and distortion is amazing, the weight is perfect, the finish and hardware is beautiful and flawless. I've been playing guitar for 45 years, and have owned many guitars, most very expensive, and the LP100 is my favorite guitar.
Reliability & Durability — 9
If there is any negative feelings about the LP100 it would be that I have to tune it often. I haven't looked at the tuners yet to see if they're slipping, might just need tightened. I play a lot of Blues and I've used a different set of strings on this guitar too, so it could just be the strings.
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
I had to set the LP100 up to suite me but once I did, the ease of playing it was remarkable; much easier to play then my expensive Fender Stratocasters. I'm still experimenting with the pickup adjustments, which I think is an individual preference. This guitar is well constructed, everything matches perfectly.

My LP100 was made in China, in 2003. I bought it used and have loved it ever since I opened the case and laid eyes on it. The pick-up selector knob was missing, I don't know what happened to it but that's not a big deal, I just got another on and put on it.
