Sound — 10
This Guitar is perfect for any style. I play anything from classic rock to blues (except punk). I use a Marshall amp and they just work together perfrectly. Switch is clean, no noise. As the great Slash said, "As long as you have a Les Paul and a decent amp, you can make any sound."
Overall Impression — 10
I play alot of styles and this just beats the crap out of any other guitar. I wouldnt even think about buying a Gibson. I've been playing for a while and this is my first really good guitar. If this were stolen I would go on a killing spree to find the theif. It would be worth it to get it back. I love everything about and nothing has gone wrong. But my favourite feature is the way it plays itself. I dont have to push as hard as my other guitar and barre chords are much easier. The only thing I wished it had was a Marshall Stack (not included).
Reliability & Durability — 10
I would definetly gig w/o backup. Hardware wil last ages and ages. Strap buttons haven't given pout yet and are very tight. Finish is built to last forever.
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
Action is perfect, met the factory standards as set in the manual. Pickups needed a very small ajustment (took literally 30 secs). Top bookmatched perfectly, bridge is great. No flaws.
