Sound — 10
I play a lot of hard rock and classic rock and it suits my need perfectly. I play it through a Line 6 Spider on the crunch setting and it sounds amazing. It has the amazing Les Paul sound of a Gibson with out costing thousands of dollars. It has no buzzing or any other noise. This guitar is perfect if your looking of a Gibson Les Paul without the pricetag. It is amazing when playing guns and roses and most hard rock and rock music.

Overall Impression — 10
This guitar is perfect for any kind of rock. No matter what kind you play this guitar will suit your needs. This sounds amazing through a Line 6 spider but it sounded amazing in store through an Orange Dual Terror and a Marshall amp. If it was lost or stolen I'd definitely buy another one without a doubt. I love the features it comes with and the amazing sound and tone you get from it. I compared it to a Gibson Tribute but this was better, it sounded better and felt better.

I have given this guitar a workout and it still looks and sounds brand new. The hardware is solid and it doesnt't look like it will br breaking in my lifetime. I wouldn't play without a back up with this guitar but I do anyway just in case it gets tolen or anything. This guitar will be one to pass on to you kids.

Action, Fit & Finish — 8
The action was a bit high but that was easy. It is easy to adjust the innunition and the bridge hight. The pickups were set up perfectly and I didn't have to change them. It had no flaws with it at all. It was in perfect quality. It didn't even have any scratches on the back.

This is a 2012 model guitar. Mine was made in Korea. It has a 24 fret mahogany neck with medium frets and a rosewood finger board. It has a thick mahogany body. It has a tune-o-matic bridge. With 2 passive alnico classic humbuckers. It was 1 volume and 1 tone knob for each of the pickups and a 3 way toggle switch. It has grover pickups. Mine came with case and tools.

    strings too close to frets? christ... nothing but kids learn to do a setup. and youll never hear its real sound out of a line6 ANYTHING
    all im saying is to learn the instruments components. any guitar out of a box or at a store will not be to your needs or feel unless you get lucky. you need to put some effort into taking potential to its fullest. please learn to do all-point setups and any guitar you have an ear for will play just as well as they sound. too many guitars get downed and sold off because the owner doesnt polish the gem. I promise, Ive had a lemon before. the only reason i ever returned it was a torqued truss rod that wouldnt evenly pitch the neck. other than that, high frets, action, playability can all be adjusted. no flaming please just trying to save some of those older guitars out on the streets.
