Sound — 8
Sounds good. Good for blues, soft/hard rock. Actually it's pretty much good for anything. I have a Roland Cube. It has lots of different choices for effects and what not. So you can pretty much choose the style of music it plays.

Overall Impression — 10
good for any style. I've been playing for a few months. I got it for as a gift. If it was stolen I would probably upgrade. I really want a Gibson Les Paul or SG. But if I couldnt afford it I would definently get this again. This is a great guitar for a beginner or intermediate. Even an advanced player. Not recomended for a pro or expert.

Reliability & Durability — 10
I've done a few live shows with it. It's held up pretty good. Hardware is still solid. No signs of loosening. Strap buttons are very solid. I don't have a backup. So I guess I can depend on it. Finish looks thick. And good finish. No signs of wearing yet.

Action, Fit & Finish — 8
Seems to me that it is put to gether pretty nicely. Everything looks straight and where it should be. Only thing wrong that I can find is that there is a very tiny (very tiny dent on the the edge of it but very hard to see. The cap on the Switch came loose.

- Made in Japan - 22 frets - Maple Neck - Black in colour - String-thru body bridge. Similer to a Strat. But without the wammi-bar. - 2 controls (volume, tune) and a three way Switch. - 2 humbucking pickups
