Overall Impression — 10
Overall this guitar is perfect for any beginner looking to start playing rock/punk or metal. The guitar is beautifully made and sounds better than any cheap Fender rip off or squire. I've only been playing since christmas but already I can play a few green day songs and some rock classics. If this guitar was stolen I would 100% buy it again, I love everything about it, its looks sound and its uniqueness, its different from a boring Fender rip off and sounds and looks better too. Its easy to play and I can't fault it, I would highly recommend this guitar to anyone.
Reliability & Durability — 9
As I said before the guitar is very reliable and I would use this guitar live because of the high sound quality and its durability. The only thing I wouldn't use live is the amp, simply because its not ment to be used live, its a practice amp (don't misunderstand me, the amp is brilliant). I'm almost certain this guitar will last for a very long time and the finish and setup is perfect.
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
The guitar was bought online and when I got it, the guitar was already tuned to E Standard which is perfect for any beginnner. The guitar is very well made and I can't fault the quality, it hasn't let me down once and its very reliable. The tuner provided also helps as it tell you what note the guitar is currently in and how out of tune it is.
