Sound — 10
My style of music is melodic thrash metal. When I first got the guitar, the moment the jack connected it to the amp I knew this was the right guitar for me. It is ultra heavy. When I put it through one of my cheaper pedals (Behringer Ultra metal to be precise) the sound blew me away. And when I starded playing through my more expensive pedals, shit me. It is the best sounding guitar for metal ever. Evan better after a pick up change to a set of emg 81 and 85.

It is the perfect metal guitar. If you don't want to be spending 1000's on a rr1 then I suggest you buy this guitar, it's just as good. Plus you'll look sexy as hell playiing this beauty. buy it, look sexy, sound fukin heavy as dark matter and smile. Smile because this is the best guitar you have ever played.
Reliability & Durability — 10
At first I was wary. With its shape and the fact it's a bolt on neck I was worried. But I was wrong. Perfectly reliable. especially as I swing the guitar aroung like a baseball bat. No scratches dints or any visible scars. Solid as a rock. Taje it from me. I abuse my guitar and this guitar takes a savage beating. Just make sure you don't get out of hand and set it on fire or somethin' stupid like that.
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
I had no problems with it. It was sent to me through the post with? "City link" delivery company and it arrived in perfect condition. Everything was how I expected it to be. Perfect. I personally thank Jackson for taking the time to make the guitar properly and ensuring it was the highest quality before I got it.
Features — 10
The main reason I bought this was due to the fact it's so f--king beautiful. Standard randy rhoads shape with volume and tone control. It also has a strung through body which is more difficult to string but worth it for looks. It also has a 24th fret useful for some "widdly widdly" high pitched solos. All in all an amazing guitar.
