Sound — 6
I play mostly heavy metal, but sometimes also classic, rock, blues or punk just for fun. It has nice strong clean sounds but the distortion sounds a bit like dough. Not very heavy sound and in higher frets it doesn't sound very clear. It seems ok for many styles of music, but not really perfect for anyone of them.
Overall Impression — 8
Most of the other $150-200 guitars I've tried have been worse and for $165 it's ok. It's a nice guitar for beginners, although it's not very special. The sound isn't very good but good enough for practicing. The quality is better than the quality of all the other cheap asian guitars I've seen. But if I'd start playing electric guitar a second time, I would spend more money for better one.
Action, Fit & Finish — 8
The finish is average and the design not very cool, but I think it's better than a copied design of a Strat or a V.
