Sound — 8
It suits very well with my style of approach in different genre, I play rock n roll, pop rock, metal. I'm using Line 6 amp & Zoom G3 and sometimes I use Line 6 modeling which is selectable in the amp, the noise is negligible just gotta have the right knowledge i prefer reading manual. It's tone is great, this guitar can make almost all kind of pro sounds in so many variety.
Overall Impression — 8
I play heavy metal, rock n roll, hard rock, pop rock, and it is a good match, i been playing for 4 years, I own drum kit, ESP LTD Bass, Casio WK210 etc. If it were stolen i'll probably buy other series of same brand, I love the weight the sound and the tremolo effect, and also 24 frets. All I hate about is the non locking tuners. It is very good for low budged pros. A correct combination of strings which doesn't rust.
Reliability & Durability — 8
This guitar definitely withstand live playing, the hardware seems in great look so far, solid strap buttons. I can depend on it, and I'll use on a gig without a back up. The finish is glossy looking which is very nice, it doesn't wear off with lots of playing.
