The Sound Is perfect, it has the Best Dirty Tuning I have ever played. I use a Lime 6 Spider LV Amp, and with this Guitar it sounds Great. It is not Noisy. I can make alot of Different sounds with this guitar.

Overall Impression — 10
I Play Metal, This was a PERFECT Match. I've been playing Metal for 3 Years. And I don't have much Gear. I didn't Ask anything. It was Stolen/lost, I would Make another one. Because like I said, This was a Custom Guitar. I love the Floyd Rose and the way you can play Solos on this guitar.

Reliability & Durability — 10
This Guitar will withstand Playing Live. The hardware seems like it'll last at least 4 years. The Strap Buttoms are Solid. I can Depend on it. I don't need a backup. Like I said before, It's FINE.

Action, Fit & Finish — 9
It was Set-up JUST fine. The Pickups were well Adjusted, I didn't have to do anything to it. It didn't come with any Flaws, it was Perfect.

    You are quite clearly a ****ing idiot. "I didn't realise the finish has to be wiped down once you played"
