Sound — 10
I play mainly metal and metalcore and suits my style of music perfectly. I use a Fender M80 amp with a MT2 metal zone. Guitar has a nice clean and distorted tone and I think it would suit most music styles.
Overall Impression — 10
I've been playing for about a year and a half, owned 2 other guitars (some cheap Strat knock off and a Samick) and the Jackson absolutely kicks their arses! If it were stolen, I definately would buy another one. Their is nothing I dislike about the Jackson and my favourite feature would have to be the FR (never had one before).
Reliability & Durability — 10
As I don't play live, I personally wouldnt know. But I would think that the guitar would be able to play live without having a backup. I think the guitar is sturdy to survive anything.
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
Upon taking the guitar home, it stays in tune reasonably well, action is nice and most importantly, guitar does not appear to have any problems at all!
