Sound — 10
The humbuckers are amazing. They respond well to pinch harmonics, have a lot of punch to power chords and basic shredding as well. Has a lot of warmth to the tone thanks to the mahogany body, and amazing clarity thanks to the great stock pick-ups. When I played Symphony Of Destruction and Master Of Puppets, it almost sounded exactly the same as if Kirk Hammet or James Hetfield/Dave Mustaine had played it. I played it through a Cube 60, which is an amazing metal amp.
Overall Impression — 9
I play thrash metal. The 321MH was perfectly suited for it. I've been playing for 10 months, and in March 20th it will be exactly 1 year. If I bought this, I would use this as my main axe. If it was stolen, I would buy another one, and hunt down the thief. What I love about it the most is the mahogany body. It sounds so warm, so full of tone. I tried this out along with the main contender of this price range: the Schecter Omen 6. The Omen lost to the RG.
Reliability & Durability — 5
I only tried this axe out, so I wouldn't know how it would work while gigging. The finish seems to be directly painted onto the actual wood, and Mahogany is a very hard wood, so most likely the finish won't come off within a month of playing.
Action, Fit & Finish — 8
The action was very very good. I had no problem adjusting to the action of the RG. It alowed me to play fast. The pickups I had no problems with. No flaws, but I didn't buy this axe. I only tried it out. However, the neck humbucker was a bit loose, but then again, I tried it out, so it could've been already like that. I didn't use the neck humbucker, so I don't know if that affected the tone.
Features — 8
Mahogany body, amazing Wizard II neck, dual very hot stock humbuckers, and a fixed bridge. 1 volume and 1 tone knob. Nothing you don't need.
