Sound — 5
The sound is okay its not great but not bad I play all kinds of music and it didn't sound good playing classic rock it played better when you played alternative rock and metal. But it has no fuzz and its pretty clear just has a weird sound to it but you get used to it after awhile.
Overall Impression — 6
I play all kinds of music and if you play metal or modern rock then this is a nice starter guitar for you I've been playing for about 5 years and this is one of the best starter guitars I've played. If I lost it I wouldn't get another 1 bc I think I over payed big time for it. The only thing that I loved about it was how long the neck was and the whammy bar.
Reliability & Durability — 7
I think it would survive live playing. Well depends if your hardcore rough then it wouldn't last. But the hardware would last forever I play that guitar ALOT and I got it the day it was made and it still sounds perfect. The strap buttons aren't that great the strap slips off all the time. The finish can last a long time if you don't bump it alot but not from playing.
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
The factory did a pretty good job putting it together it had no flaws and the bridge was lined up perfect the pick-ups were not lose and everything was in prestine condition not a scratch ding nothing. I wish more guitars would come out of the factory like this. I've bought alot of guitars that the neck was bowed out or the bridge need tweaked so I'll give this a perfect score.

It is a 2003 model and it was made in indonesia I think. It has 22 frets with a maple neck. It has a gloss finish and a floating bridge. It has 1 volume knob and 1 tone knob and a three way selector and double humbuckers and a single coil pick-ups. And it dodnt come with anything when I bought the guitar not a strap strings nothing. So I think I got ripped.
