Sound — 10
This guitar is the best guitar for my style of music. I play mostly punk/emo/screamo. You get a rich sound when you have distortion on it and you get a nice smooth tone when you play it clean. I also use it as an acoustic to make songs for my band cause it's a semi-hollow.
Overall Impression — 10
I play punk/emo/screamo/ as I said before and this guitar goes perfect with the bands I play. I've only been playing for 2 years. I also have Toms Fender. I love this gutiars sound with distortion. The pickups are great even though they were brought back from the 70's. I wish it was lighter and a little smaller cause im used to the Fender Strat and that is very light and very small compared to his new guitar. All in all this guitar is a great guitar.
Reliability & Durability — 10
This gutiar will probably withstand live playing considering its a signature of someone who tours a lot. The finish is good enough to last. The strap buttons are solid. I can depend on this guitar. I wouldnt need a backup with this guitar
