Sound — 9
My music style is either nice clean stuff or metal, but not much in between, but it sounds great for those styles. It hums a little when you're not playing, but once you start it stops the buzz. I'll give it a 9 for this cause I haven't really experemented with other kinds of music to say its amzing or sucks for those.
Overall Impression — 10
Like I said, I play metal or clean stuff, and it's a perfect match. If it was stolen or lost, I'd probably sit in my basement and stare at the empty stand where it usually goes for a few weeks, then I'd go fing who stole it and steal it back, or definately buy a new one. Speaking of stands, it's weird to put on a stand, but as long as the bottom part of it can tilt to accomidate for the curve, and it's got some non slip rubber or something, then it's fine. Overall this is a great guitar, especally for the price. It'd be pretty nice if it came with a gig bag or something, because it doesn't fit into a normal one. One thing I wouldn't reccomend is the hard case for this, because if you've got that kind of money (about as much as the guitar costs), then you might as well buy the Kelly KE or whatever the better one is. It's great. I'd definately recomend this to begginers or anyone because of its price and great sound.
Reliability & Durability — 10
This guitar will definitaly last within the first hour I banged it off a wall and there wasnt even a chip. The strap hasn't fallen off at all, even though the buttons look fairly small. I would definately gig it without a backup.
Action, Fit & Finish — 9
The guitar came set up nearly perfect, although I'd reccomend changing the strings on it cause the factory ones arent the greatest. It's a little weird to play at first because of the way it's shaped and where the strap ataches, but you get used to it. It's also really hard to play sitting down, but eventually you'll find a comfy way to hold it. The finish on it was very good. I haven't found any flaws in it, but with the black finish, fingerprints stand out on it really good, but what are you gonna do?
Features — 9
This guitar is basically prtty simple when it comes to features, but it still sounds great and looks awesome. It's got volume and tone knobs, and a 3-way pickup Switch. Like I said, pretty simple, but it does it's job. It also has 24 frets which is nice.
