Sound — 10
I play mainly metalcore/post-hardcore/thrash/rock and it feels like it's basically built for the music I play. You can also get some nice cleans out of it too if you play blues/jazz/etc.
Overall Impression — 10
I've been playing a little over 3 years now and I love the guitar. It's the best I've ever played. I've picked up Fenders, Gibsons, Ibanez Prestige's, Deans, Jacksons, you name it... Nothing comes close to this. That's my opinion. Some may disagree, but for me, this is THE guitar.
Reliability & Durability — 10
I throw down when I'm playing. If you've ever seen a live metalcore/post-hardcore concert- that's what I do when I'm just playing for fun. I do spins, all kinds of crazy shit and haven't had a problem. Just use Strap-Loks. Would I gig without a backup, hell no. I don't care how perfect a guitar is... Always bring a backup.
Action, Fit & Finish — 8
The finish is great. The neck is literally PERFECT for me. I've never picked up a guitar that felt better. It almost feels like I got it Custom made. The only problem is it isn't extremely fast. The finish seems to slow me down, especially when I've been playing a while and my hands start to sweat a little and stick.

Ok I'm not going to go over every detail of this guitar. I'll tell you what I feel you should know. Anyway, I have the blue quilted Floyd Rose Dual Locking Tremelo model. The guitar never goes out of tune! I was in the habit of every time I pick up a guitar I tune it, and every time I pick this one up I forget I don't need to tune it. Contrary to popular belief, it isn't that bad changing tunings. It takes me about 5 minutes. I Switch tunings from Drop D, D Standard, Drop C, C Standard, Drop B (Which I use heavier strings for and don't do that often) The Active EMG 81/85 Pickups are incredible. Along with SD Screamin Demons they are the best I've ever played/heard. The shielding on the pickups is great, I don't get any buzzing/feedback.
