Sound — 9
I play Rock, Classic Rock, Metal, Funk, Blues, Jazz, and anything else in that area. This guitar suits it perfectly for it's shape, color, and amazing sound. I'm using an Electra practice amp and a Line 6 Pocket POD. It's only noisy when you want it to be. It is extremely easy to do what you want to do with it. No matter what style of music or sound it is, this guitar adapts to you.
Overall Impression — 10
I play Rock, Classic Rock, Metal, Funk, Blues, Jazz, and anything else in that area. A great matching guitar. I had not a doubt in my mind if I wanted this Les Paul or not. I knew I wanted this exact model. If this guitar was stolen, I'd probably not get one fore some time, since I don't have much money... but overall this is a great guitar that properly suits any kind of music, has great durability, and a great finish for such a low price.
Reliability & Durability — 9
This guitar could easily withstand Live playing, built-to-last hardware, solid strap buttons, and a long-lasting finish. You wouldn't have to worry about many problems with it. It's very dependable, reliable, and durable on the road or just in the studio. It should last long, even with a constant use.
Action, Fit & Finish — 7
The action is second-to-none. Perfect pitch, perfect height. The pickups could be better, though. One of them was a little tilted, but no biggy. Both the bridge and the top were perfect, and when I got the guitar it had no problems, but when I got my first one, it had a manufacturing problem that consisted of a loose G-string peg, a loose neck, raspy frets, and the nut that holds up the amp jack input was there, just under the base plate...
