Sound — 10
This guitar is awesome for indy, punk, emo, or any kind of rock. It suits my music taste like a glove since my favorite band is Blink 182. Im using a little Fender Frontman 15G amp hooked up to a Digitech GNX-3 Workstation. The sound is what wins it over for me, a sharp yet warm one of a kind sound.
Overall Impression — 10
This guitar is perfect. Lowprice for a great guitar. I have been playing for 6 years and I own a Fender acoustic, Squire Afiinity Strat and A Brian Moore. This guitar is as good as anyone of them. I would buy this guitar again. Its simplicity makes it great. Its sound is to no compare. It has everything I need on it.
Reliability & Durability — 10
Blink 182 is more live than CD, it takes a beating good and stays in tune with a neverending sustain. Hardware will last a lifetime, strap buttons are solid as a rock, this guitar is reliable and sturdy.
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
The only thing wrong with the guitar was that it had two knicks on the back that is nonvisible. Its lightweight makes it easy to play standing up and comfortable to play since it has no knobs in the way (downstrokers Heaven).

The Tom DeLonge Strat is amazing. Simplicity is key, it has one knob (volume) and one amazing Seymour Duncan Invader humbucker. Made in Mexico (Squire version in China which is the only difference). Alder body, 70's style rosewood neck with 22 frets. Seafoam green finish gives it a unique look. Stratocaster body. I Got this for $182 (what a coincidence) with 8 dollar shipping and a free leather Kases III gig bag (retails for 98 bucks). Non locking tuners and a non tremelo delone bridge keeps it lightweight and in tune.
