Sound — 9
This Guitar is perfect for any rockstyle, from heavy overdrive to a clean ballad. I use this guitar with an Marshall Valvestate VS100R and I just love the sound. The biggest drawback with the sound should be that it's very noisy, due to the P-90 pickup that picks up more noise than a singlecoil or humbucker.
Overall Impression — 10
Since this is the best guitar I've ever tried, whith that I mean it fits perfectlly for rock/alternative/punk/hardrock. I've been playing for 5 years and I've been wanting to buy this guitar for 3 years before I got both money and curage. If it where lost/stolen, I would without a doubt in my mind buy a new one, allthough it would take some time to get the money.
Reliability & Durability — 9
I would highly recommand to use this guitar live, but remember to buy straplocks becouse the strap in the upper end is easy to fall of. I would therefore used this guitar without a backup, I find it very reliabel, and even the volumecontrol is able to stop the signal completly. That's the quality of Gibson!
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
The only thing that I think is worth mentioning here is that the paint is that kind that easily fall of, and makes the guitar look "used" and old, but personally, I find that nice on guitars, though I've had this guitar for 6 months and no paint has been falling of jet.
