Sound — 10
I play a lot of soft rock, but sometimes hard rock. No heavy metal, although when I have tried it it can easily cope. I play a lot of Blind Melon, Marillion, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Neil Young etc. This guitar can easily change from hard rock to soft rock, perfect for a song like Stairway To Heaven where it gvoes from clean to distorted. On the clean channel, the bass strings have a distorted tone whereas the high notes are rich and full. It is the perfect guitar. I use it with a Roland Cube 15 or a Marshall 30 watt. Works great with both.
Overall Impression — 10
I play rock n' roll, a bit of folk and blues, and it is perfect. I've been playing 8 months, and play 4-5 hours a day. l I'm addicted, with this guitar it makes learning much easier. I wouldnt be able to solo like I can without it. I love everything about it, If it were lost or stolen I'd buy anohter in an intant, then track the guy down, take mine back then I'd have two.
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
I have not yet played a guitar with as good action as this one. I'll go to a friends house and play a Fender Telecaster, and not be able to do the solos I do, Comfortably Numb, Stairway To Heaven, etc. It came perfect. No flaws at all except for some discoloration on the fretboard, which I dont mind at all as long as I can play it.
