First Thing I Did Was Plug It into My Old micro Cube, Sounded Like my old Lp-100, Then Plugged it into My Fender Frontman 212R And... WOAH!, The Vintage tone and fat sound from this beauty is amazing!, I Had a loan of a 1990 Gibson Lp a few weeks ago and TBH This sounds the same, Honestly. I'm Running it straight through my FM212R And it sounds amazing, I Play Stuff Like Led Zeppelin, Guns N' Roses, Sabbath And The Cult And this guitar fits perfectly, Great Sound!

Overall Impression — 10
Like I Said I Play Zeppelin, Sabbath, The Cult And GN'R and this fits perfectly, I've Been playing 4 years and I'm 14, I wud buy it again for sure, I Traded in my old Lp-100 and got 189 for it so got this for just 259! Pickups have a nice Vintage fat tone and the neck pickup is just great for some nice blues In C Or B!

Reliability & Durability — 10
This Guitar I know for a fact will go through Live playing without a back-up, I Like to have my guitar so that it's not polished every 5 minutes or that extreme care is taken with it, If it's worth the money it's gonna withstand what I'm gona put it through, I'm sure it will.

Action, Fit & Finish — 10
Action Was set up perfectly out of the factory actuly, Unlike My Old Lp-100, Pickups are perfect hight, No Flaws what-so-ever, Everything is set perfectly and this guitar will last for a long time, it's as heavy as a few gibsons I've held before and sounds as good!
