Sound — 10
It suits rock and metal very well which is what I usually play. I play a lot of Metallica and is very good. Not very versatile because of the 2 control nobs, Very nice sounding though. I am currently using a glx distortion pedal and a crybaby wah. Very nice rich, deep sound. I'm very pleased with the sound.
Overall Impression — 10
It matches my playing style very well. I've been playing 4 years and this is my second guitar. If it were stolen I would buy a better guitar but I would highly reccomend buying this if you're a beginner or intermediate guitarist. I love the look of it.The only thing it's missing is a Floyd Rose. overall: a really nice looking, nice sounding solid guitar.
Reliability & Durability — 10
This guitar is 3 years old and still in mint cond. Not very reliable strap buttons. I'll probably get locking ones. Very nice finish but no pickguard but I don't think there's any need for one since there are no chips in the paint at all. Overall very reliable. Could last a long time if looked after properly.
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
All stock, no custom pickups or anything. Has no flaws what'so ever in my opinion. I bought it 2nd hand(3 years old) and the neck is still perfectly straight, hardly any fret buzz, all the electronics working. Basically no damage exept for a few light scratches.
