Sound — 10
Sound : It sounds great distorted and when you use just the bottom pickups, it has a very poppy tone. When im playing clean i often use both pickups, and it sounds very good with not alot of buzz. I really love the bottom pickups tho. Really great tone with the EMG's and it sounds great when playing Live.
Overall Impression — 9
Overall impression : AWESOME guitar. I recommend this guitar to anybody that is an intermediate or veteran guitarist. love it and play it every day. This guitar is also somewhat rare, i say if you find one, buy it. And if you dont like it, 1) what the hell is your problem 2) sell it somewhere for more money and make some cash money. Peace and keep rockin fellas.
Reliability & Durability — 9
Reliability, durability : I have had this guitar for about 3 months. Best guitar i have ever played. It is very durable, but the tone knob occasionally falls off, but it was like this when i bought it used from the store, and i fixed it with a little but of glue.
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
Action, finish : Very smooth, and the neck is extremely smooth when playing songs that move around alot. The action is perfect for playing chords, and even some tap solos. i think that that is where this guitar really shines when your playing a solo or some Metallica like riffs.
Features — 9
Features : Im not sure when this guitar was made. i purchased it used from my local music store. It has 24 frets and a Mahogany body and neck. It has 2 EMG-HZ pickups which sound beautiful on nearly any tube amp. Sometimes when im playing Live, i step on the cable leading to my amp, but it only happened once. I wish that they would have made a locking system for it, but im also a clutz XD
