Sound — 9
I'm mostly a metal/rock guitarist,and it totally suits my style. The sound is also amazing! I run it through a Laney Lx35R amp,And the sounds really good. it gets a bit noisy at high gain,but I also use a Boss DS-1,and metal muff distortion pedals,that give it a really good sound! The pickups are good. I manage to get almost any sound i want on this guitar. Its awesome.

I've been playing for a while now,and its a perfect match to anything I play. It looks good too! I have a Laney Lx35R amp,And a Boss DS-1 and a Metal muff pedal. I WAS thinking of buying a Cort,but DUDE,This ones awesome. If it were lost.......Well, i dont know. I may buy the same one. Or not. I love the guitar,overall. Its so good,it got me laid!! This guitar is just one thing. AWESOME.
Reliability & Durability — 10
This guitar could go thjrough......well,anything! I've dropped it twice,and banged i around a bit,but.......not a scratch!! The strap buttons are strong,and my strap does not fall off. I play it live,and it good stuff. I would use it without backup,definately. I dont think the paint will flake either.
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
The guitar wasset up really well. No finger prints,it came in tune too! The action was just right,The pickup height was perfectly adjusted. The bridge was good. I just had a slightly loose tone knob,but thats fixed anyway.
