as said before i play metal(metallica and other shit) im playing it on a Randall RX75R because of the humbuckers the sound is full warm and bitey it isnt the most versatile Gibson but it does were it was made for ithas a nice clean sound full and warm the distortion is the darkest distortion ive ever heard SOUL CRUSHING METAL

Overall Impression — 10
GREATEST GUITAR EVER i play it with my amp and a crybaby wah i compared it to a Flying V i played them both and this was just better if it was stolen i would call the metal milltia chase the gay down and torcher him but i wish it had blackouts or emgs or something like that

BUILD AS A TANK its a Gibson so the support is great and the quality too i have it for a year now and it doesnt have flaws why the fuck do you think james hetfield plays them? i gig with it without a backup man its just one of the most reliable guitars on the market

Action, Fit & Finish — 9
everything was near to perfect when i got it but if you sweat on the finish you get weird spots but you can just tune o matic bridges are in my opinion the best bridges you can get it doesnt get out of tune at all i use it with ghs strings wipe the spots away

its an american 08 Gibson 22 frets mahogany neck thru with a tune o matic bridge mini grover tuners and a hardshell case so the features are almost perfect for metal but i might chance the pickups the features are really nice everything on this guitar points straigth to METAL
