Sound — 10
The sound is great! It is mainly intended as a jazz-ish guitar. When you play through an amp thats not a spider 3 75 watt (which is what I have) it sounds amazing. For what I play, Ska-core this guitar is amazing. Fat lows, smooth mids, and tasteful highs. I have had this guitar for almost a year now, and I compare every guitar's sound to this one. I love it.
Overall Impression — 10
I love it, and play it everyday. It is my favorite guitar, and wish more people knew about it. Its great for all types of music, and especially for the ska I play. I've been playing almost everyday for 2 and a half years, it may seem skeptical but I know my stuff. if I had the money, and It was stolen, I would instantly replace it.
Reliability & Durability — 9
It is a durable guitar, I have hit it a few times unfortunately, and the finish is still flawless. The guitar is really reliable, and is just a great all around guitar. I haven't had any problems cosmetically or electrically, and this guitar is played everyday.
Action, Fit & Finish — 8
Its action out of the box was nice, it had heavier gauge strings then the Strat I played on, but I adjusted, and prefer it. The finish is STILL flawless, White Body with Gold hardware. Only flaws I noticed, were a few loose screws, (mainly the pick guard, and the jack casing) and the G string goes out of tune with large bends and tremolo picking, but for every guitar I play on thats about the same.
