Sound — 9
I got it on Christmas and oh boy, this is a beast. It's so easy to get an amazing sharp, clear sound, great for those high scale notes! Even with that, it's still amazingly metallic sounding, chunky, big and loud. I used to have an Encore E1BTROFT that I got of eBay for about 50, there is an enourmouse sound diffrence between them both.

Reliability & Durability — 9
This guitar is good quality, I would have to hit it with some form of object to leave a mark. The straps where a bit diffrent, but seems to feel fine, it's ment to release strain on your shoulders. I personaly would play it on stage (I do anyway), but if I had more guitars that were decent, I would take a spare, just in case something goes wrong.
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
I got it as an Xmas present from my parents, and they got it from some online music store. It came in about a week and when I opend it for xmas day, it was in a brown Ibanez box with lots of other parts i.e. Alan keys and I didn't have to ajust a thing. The strings where on fine, tuned, no loose screws they even threw in replacement strings.
