It is amazing for metal classic through Hardcore, and great for shred. I'm using a Peavey 112 studio pro, a Bad monkey and a Dunlop Crybaby. It isnt very noisey unless the volume on the amp is turned up to 5 or more but if the volume on the guitar is all the way up just turn it down just a little bit. Chunky heavy low riffs and great fluid solo's. it also has a classic rock tone.

I play thrash and shred so it matches my style perfectly. I've been playing over 4 years and and I have a Peavey, Yeah there are no questions I'd have asked Buy This guitar again you go jacson you don't go back.I'd did compared it to the dk2, RR3, and Ibanez RG roadrage. And it was everything I ever wanted. No it has aeverything I wanted.
Reliability & Durability — 10
It could be thrown off a mountain and still would be in tune. The hardware is durable and will last a long time. The strap buttons are very solid. I can depend on it, but a string I don't so I'll bring my back up guitar incase of a string break. And yes the finnish is very good and strong.
