this guitar is perfect for my style i am really into metal at the moment and i mostly play pantera, metallica, megadeth and other stuff like that, and this guitar is so suited for it. im playing through 30 watt vox valtronix (this amp is awesome) on a pretty dirty setting and it is practically noiseless. i dont really use the clean tone but i will say that is warm but its more made for a dark sound.
Overall Impression — 10
this guitar is so good and its perfect for my style. i have been playing about a year and 3 months and im still playing more than an hour a day, usually more because im addicted to it. If this guitar was stolen i would cry because i cant afford a new one or i would most probably go and steal it back at gun point !!. i nearly brought a basic Ibanez with a floyd but i went for this on gut feeling and my gut was right.
Reliability & Durability — 9
i do use this guitar live and it can withstand it no sweat, i'll still bring a back up for detune songs and string breaks (im really good at that) the hard ware is pretty solid and so are the strap buttons (im still going to swap the strap buttons out and i'll put some EMG's in it soon). the finish is solid as-well

i order this from a web site and the set up out of the box was not too great, this is because i had to play another 40 getting it set up because i didn't no how to do it myself. The pick ups didn't need to be adjusted witch is pretty lucky but apart form that i have no other problems
