This guitar can play anything from classical to death metal with the coil tap and 5 way selector you get a wide range of tones. I use many amps with mine my spider or our bands rhythm guitarists Roland cube it sounds great through both of them, on the spider I get a lot of feedback not through the cube but that's just the spider.It has a full sound and is perfect for my choice of music (rock/metal).

Overall Impression — 10
It's the perfect guitar for me. I had no doubts about buying this guitar and I don't think I ever will. If it was stolen or lost I must admit I may consider buying another but I would buy this again eventually. I love everything about it I'd reccomend it to anyone looking for a decent guitar in this price range whatever your taste in music.

Reliability & Durability — 10
This guitar is increadibly reliable. It hasn't scrached and the hardware will last. The strap buttons are solid and didn't need tightening or anything I would depend on it for any gig of any size I wouldn't keep a backup cause I wouldn't need one. The finish is built to last and as I said it hasn't got scrached after my lousy stand/past gigbag.

Action, Fit & Finish — 9
The only problem I had with this guiat was that the action was very high. Everything else on this guitar works perfectly and was set up well. I'll give it an 9 cause the action was stupidly high but it was set up well compared to my last guitar >_< which came with nothing in it's place I think they should have called it the build it yourself guitar (Stagg L400).

Features — 9
Made in Indonesia, well made. 24 frets on a set-thru neck and a angled headstock, it also has Licensed Floyd Rose which is pretty well built, locking nut (obviously). Usually you get ESP EMG written on the pickup I just got ESP I don't think it makes a diffrence really though it has coil tap 5-way selector Switch and a super Strat body. My one has a see-through red which looks really nice, allround I think it's a well built guitar
