Sound — 10
I love rock, punk, and metal and if you're looking for a heavy sound, this guitar delivers it and then some, despite only having passive pickups. its got a full, warm tone on it, but sometimes, if the gain's up way too high, or the settings are off, you'll get feedback (having your computer screen on and the guitar within 2 feet of it creates static through the amp). This guitar's got its own sound, with a unique build I wouldn't trade for the world. I've played this guitar with my friend's Peavey 5150 stack, another friend's Roland Jazz Chorus, and my sister's Danelectro 15 watt Nifty Fifty, and delivers great sound through anything it's plugged into.
Overall Impression — 10
I play a lot of rock, punk, and metal, and this guitar provides nothing but amazing sound for anything you put it up to. I've only been playing guitar for just under 19 months, but I'd never buy another guitar. If this guitar gets stolen, lost, or broken, someone's going to die, and I'm going to find another one if I have to go overseas to find one.
Reliability & Durability — 10
This guitar will deliver your way through recording or live play at any given point in time. the hardware's durable as ever. You can definitely play this guitar live without anything backing it up. Everything on this guitar's very solid. It'll go through hell and back and come out kicking more ass than ever before.
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
This guitar's build is amazing. Having the pickup set up stock is perfect, and the bridge setting isn't too tight, or loose at all for any music style.

These aren't in production anymore, cause they're only making 250's, 50's, and 400's. 24 XJ frets on this. Very playable guitar. This guitar's body shape's like no other, but a lot of people that see it describe it as being a BC Rich, which gets to me, cause I dislike BC Rich guitars in the first place. Tune-O-Matic bridge on it with a neck through body. All black hardware. EMG HZ-H4 passive pickups. 1 volume, 1 tone, and 3-way toggle to go through the 2 pickups. ESP locking tuners on it. This guitar doesn't come with anything but the guitar itself, but it's a great buy.
