Sound — 10
It suits my style of music perfectly! I like to play with alot of distortion and sometimes clean, and it works excellent with both. I use an Epiphone Studio 15R amplifier with it. It has a pretty decent volume with out an amplifier, it has a bright sound. I think you could make just about any sounds with this guitar.
Overall Impression — 10
I play all differeant types of music, from punk to alternative, and it works well in each song. I've been playing for a year and this is my first electric guitar, and this guitar has made Epiphone my favorite brand. I have felt MANY differeant guitars when trying to find one and I like this one better then them all. I would definetly buy this again. I dotn hate anything about it, but I do wish it came with a place to stick a whammy.
Reliability & Durability — 10
I believe that this guitar would withstand live playing, it sturdy. The hardware seems very high quality, the knobs are very fancy see through. The strap buttons are not going anywhere anytime soon. Yes I would use it at a gig without a backup. The finish is perfect, its glossy and works well with the white.
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
I got it from the previous owner, but it has not a single scratch or dent or flaw in the finish on it, I don't believe that he played it very much so it must of have been that way when he got it, so it must have been ste up well. It is set up very well! The string were on correct an everything, no lose screws, poor quality wood or anything, just perfect.
