Sound — 6
I play punk abd netal and I just don't really like the way it sounds it sounds kinda twangy and I would have chosen another guitar. I'm using a Mesa Boogie. The sound isnt really that bright and it has like no low end.

Overall Impression — 4
Personally I would not recommend this guitar to anyone if your going to go SG spend the extra 100-200 dollars get a Gibson Faded or something cause Epiphone is better at making the Les Paul.

Reliability & Durability — 4
I've played a couple shows with it and it goes out of tune very easy I've had to retune it up to 5 times in a show. I've had to retune it in a song. The strap button let go alot and I have strap lock now so they dont but the positioning of the front strap button is set in a place where when let go of the neck its top heavy and the neck slides down twrods the ground. I don't even play with it at shows now because of its indepedability. The finish isnt there really so it's not gonna come off.

Action, Fit & Finish — 6
The action on this thing sucked to put it point blank it was buzzy and didn't sound great. I adjusted them but it stll gets the occasional buzz. When I got the guitar there terent any flaws but if your a little harder on your instraments don't get it cause it chipps. Belive me I have a chip in the bottem left corner of the guitar that I'm afraid might spread.

It was made in korea with 23 frets its a medium side neck. Body is mahogany but it doesnt have a finish on it it really looks like an old peice of furnature. It's got a normal SG body. It's got 2 tone and 2 volume knobs and a 3-way selector. It's got non locking grover tuners.
