Sound — 10
I play metal in a band, and this thing is great. Before this I was using a zakk wylde Epiphone, and this thing beats it hand down. I'm running it through a Line 6 spider 3, or a POD when I wanna get really good effects. This guitar also has a really nice clean sound to it when it is needed. It is a all round guitar made for metal (if that makes sence).
Overall Impression — 10
I play metal in a band and this thing makes metal sound easy, great pickups and overall wont break. I have been playing for 3 years now and this thing is one of the best guitars I have played. If I had lost this guitar I would buy another without a doubt.
Reliability & Durability — 10
I use this guitar Live, and not once have I even thought something will go wrong. For this I wouldn't need a backup guitar. The jack unlike other guitars is secure and won't come out. For me the strap buttons where in a nice placealthough other would disagree). The finish is good on it, and I have hit it off things a few times and nothing has come off, very well made and wont get damaged easily.
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
The standard set up was good, but for me it wasn't in the right tuning. It comes in Standard tuning, and if you where goingto play in this then nothing would need doing to it, but as I play in drop C I needed it set up, but once it was set up the action is that low it feels like you are touching the fret board straight away. The finish on this bad boy is one of the best I have ever seen and I would love to put this on other guitars of mine. I picked the red one over the blue as I hadnt seen the blue one.
