Sound — 8
This guitar is great for all of you metal heads. It goes perfectly with Metallica, Megadeth and the many countless heavy metal bands in the world. Good for fast metal licks to since the bridge pick up is so clear, crisp and loud. When playing clean, this guitar is great for more sentimental song, the pick up is really clear. I use a 10 watt Marshall Practice amp with this guitar and it sound very very good.
Overall Impression — 10
I love this guitar. I played mostly heavy metal and rock music. This guitar can make any amature guitarist look like Hetfield or Kirk Hammet (if you practice a lot.) Before this I own 1 ESP and 1 Jackson, but thes guitar really blows my other guitar away. This guitar is boom. It has great looks, good sound for a mid range guitar, really fast and thin neck. I love this guitar.
Reliability & Durability — 8
This guitar will endure any live playing. The guitar will run out of tune once in a while, especially after whamming the whammy bar like a maniac. But if you got the setting properly it should stay in tune for a long time lie mines. The hardware is a die-cast it should last for a long time. The strap button are solid, no sign of it comming out yet.
Action, Fit & Finish — 8
The guitar was not properly set at the factory. The shopkeeper still need to tune and adjust the intonation. The pick up is great for a medium price guitar. The top finish is very beautiful, but certain area of the guitar is very messy expecially when you open the back cover. The neck is thin and the oil finish on the neck is just right. Making the neck easy and fast to play. It's really fast!
