This guitar is awsum. Sounds worth more than wut i paid. I play every thing from blink 182 to pantera to nirvana. This fits it all with just a twist of the distortion knob. (boss ds-1[also an awsum pedal]) that then a Fender Stage 160, I dont use any FX and this guitar is only nosiy with the distortion and tone way up. I play alot of grunge, punk rock, and metal. This guitar handels all perfectly.
Overall Impression — 10
This guitar is a perfect match for every thing i play. All genres of rock. Grunge metal industrial punk punkrock, this guitar rules. I've been playin a little while longer than a year now and this is my favorite guitar yet. This guitars got every thing it needs. If it were stolen or lost I'd want another one but im poor and ghetto and i wouldn't have enough money to get a new one so I watch over this guitar every second I can. This thing rules.
Reliability & Durability — 8
This guitar will sertinly with stand live playing as long as I get a new strap. Once the strap fell and the the guitar dropped on the cement(in the garage). And 2 tuners busted off and the tone knob shaterd. i took it back to sound vibes and they fixed everying thing up good as new and put strap locks on there for me. So now I think its all good to go. The finish came faded and it seems like it will last. The hard where is still fine from the drop and im sure I can depend on it w/o a back up at a gig but i'd take my ESP n e ways for variety.
