Sound — 10
The sound is crunchy, and GREAT for grunge music. It sounds as good as a $1000 dollar PRS guitar if you play it on some good Marshall amps! Also the harmonics are very rich. Believe me, this guitar sounds better than my $1024 dollar Washburn guitar, and my Epi SG.
Overall Impression — 10
I play grunge (Silverchair) and hard-rock (Van Halen) music, and it suits both styles perfectly. I've been playing for about 2, 5 years now. This guitar beats all other guitars I've got (Washburn N4 Nuno, Epi SG, Aria Pro II The Cat) If it were stolen, I would run to the store and buy the same guitar. I am really, really, really impressed with this thing. My favorite guitar for sure.
Reliability & Durability — 10
I have played this guitar live without any backup guitars, the hardware is totally hardcore and seems like it will last forever. I have jumped up and down and still my strap buttons are in place, and my guitar in tune. The finish also lasts great, my guitar fell on stones several times.
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
It's got a great action, very, very fast.

It's a 2007 Ibanez GAX with chrome knobs and tuners. They're all just standard Ibanez tuners but I've got to admit! I'm impressed! You can smash this guitar around, BEAT the strings and rock out on it for hours and yet, it stays in tune!
