Sound — 9
This guitar is great for Jazz, Rock (classic), Blues, and I even play some country on it. I mostly play rock though and other songs that have a blues sound or just a clean sound but this guitar can do a ton but I also play all the other genre's listed above and it works well. With it I use the Line 6 Pocket POD and it sounds great and better than my other guitar using it but I have tried using it with the crappy amp my Squire came with and it sounds pretty good but usually I run the Pocket POD through our BOSE system and the sound cannot be beat. The guitar is never very noisy (unless you want it to be and it has a clean/ bright sound to it that sounds great. The guitar is great for what I use it with but the only thing it might not work with unless you have the Line 6 Insane amp/sound is metal. And it isn't very good at making a Strat's treble sound.
Overall Impression — 9
Overall this is a great guitar and I found this better over a Strat, Gibson 335, and a Normal Epiphone. I have been playin for a few years and this is just great! And if I lost it I would buy another! The only bad thing is that a case for it is rare and a case costs about $150 if you can find one. But if you are lookin' for a new guitar and you play stuff from the Eagles, John Mellencamp, Steve Miller, Bon Jovi, Keith Urban, Brad Paisley and others you NEED to get this guitar.
Reliability & Durability — 9
This guitar is very durable and dependable and the finish I think will last forever and everything is great. And the finish is a great/bright Wine Red that looks great and I've hit it against a few things a no dents are on it. And everything on it seems like it was well crafted and someone took time and effort in it.
Action, Fit & Finish — 9
The guitar when I got it was perfect. (And it was shipped to my house through 6 states) Everything was great and it was already tuned! The only thing I had to do was plug it in and play. And the Wine Red finish and the Gold hardware looks great and really bright. Lets just say this guitar looks like it is worth over $1,000 or so.
