Sound — 6
This guitar is made for heavy metal. It has a dark sound and it's made for rythm guitar or just slow soloing. It's very distorted and not clean at all sometimes it's hard to hear the frets. But you can use different parts of the guitar to make sounds like the very top of the fret board past the first fret itll make a schreeching sound and it's incredible when it's palm muted honestly out of all the guitars I had this is the best when you have to palm mute. It has the black metal sound amazing. I use it with a crate amp and it sounds awsome especially when you use the effects it sounds amazing and its easy to make up songs on this guitar this is more like a guitar you should buy after you bought your first one. But you should try it out at a store first it might not be your style.

Overall Impression — 3
I've been usin this guitar as a practice guitar and its overall not that great I don't think it's worth the money I think you should try a different one. There are some good features but theres just better ones then this I think. This guitar is made for heavy metal so make sure if you buy this that your goin to play heavy metal.

Reliability & Durability — 2
This guitar is very loud and distorted so it isnt good for soloing and you can't hear the frets so I personnally wouldn't use this for live action.

Action, Fit & Finish — 3
The pickups in this guitar arent that great personnally you should get something else the pickups aren't that great so I would choose something else.

This Guitar has 22 frets, and has a ash fret board. It has three pickups and there really heavy metalish so if your not plannin one playin metal or something with alot of distortion and bass then this isnt your guitar. The bass pickup on this guitar is really dark its crazy it has 4 knobs to adjust the volume from your amplifier. This guitar is really heavy though and its hard to do tricks with it. It either jet black or rose red I have the jet black with the chrome finish. It's easy to restring the guitar so thats a plus you don't waist as much time restringing. It doesn't come with ne thing at all so that is a big minus. It has no whammy so its not as great for soloing but it's good for rythm for heavy metal. This guitar is pretty fat and has pretty big frets also.
