Sound — 10
This guitar is great for guitarists Who love to solo. Its pickups really magnify the higher end of the musical spectrum. It's a good metal guitar. I'm currently using a Behringer V-tone amp, and most of its built-in effects and it sounds great. It has a very full sound and really isnt noisy, or bright. It can master dark metal riffs as well as scream any solo you can dream of.
Overall Impression — 10
I'm a metal guy and this guitar is the perfect match for the metal genre. I'v been playing for about 3-4 years and I also own a V-Tone Guitar Pack, by Behringer, and an Epiphone SG Special. If it were ost or stolen, I would buy another, hunt the theif down, beat his ass and take it back, and then I would have two. I did compare it to an Ibanez of the same caliber and a Dean, but when it came to playability and tone, this guitar just blew the others away.
Reliability & Durability — 10
This guitar would definitely withstand a gig without a backup, and everything appears to be able to withstand anything, even the finish is perfect. The strap buttons are solid, and the hardware is cool-looking and durable. I haven't played live with this axe yet, but I'm looking forward to showing this beauty off
