This guitar suits my music style very good cause I play metal and rock and other heavy! I use a Behringer V-Tone 110 amp with it and a Vox Valvetronix amp with and a little Peavey Backstage amp with and on all amps its sounds great. It is not noisy at all except when you go on high gain but what doesnt make noise on high gain but rarely makes lots of noise.

Overall Impression — 10
I just got this guitar on july 22nd 2006 and it has made a good impression on me when I was making a decesion betweem these guitars I had this guitar in one hand and an ESP AX-50 in the other and this guitar blew it away If this guitar was stolen I would hunt down the person and burn there house down after I save my Jackson. I love everything about this guitar there is nothing to hate about it. Randy Rhoads forever!

This guitar will definitly withstand live playng a the hardware is perfect that will last for years the strap buttons are nice and big so that when you put the strap on it it will be hard to take off or fall off. You can depend on this guitar you dont need a backup guitar cause guitars is all you need. The finish is perfect.

Action, Fit & Finish — 10
This guitar was set up perfectly at the factory the action was pretty good good for pinch harmonics and easy bends. The pickups were adjusted nicely it made it sound more then I paid for. Everyhing on this guitar is awesomely set up for the true metal head.
