Sound — 10
It could suit almost any music style. I use it with my Vox 15w Pathfinder w/ reverb and I havent found a song I cant play with it. It has a soft mellow sound on the neck pickup and a sharp treble sound on the single coil, which is great for most rock songs. Setting it inbetween the pickups gives a rich and full sound. You can reach those screeching notes on solos easily. Cant find anything I dont like.
Overall Impression — 10
I play rock/alternative and it fits me well. It has lived up to my expectations.
Reliability & Durability — 10
This guitar will withstand live playing, and it will last. The finish is thick and with all the bumps ive given it, there hasn't been a scratch yet. I would use this on a gig without a backup.
Action, Fit & Finish — 8
No Flaws, everything was set up perfectly, except the knobs were a little loose, but I got that fixed.
