Sound — 10
I just bout this guitar yesterday, and I played it through a Marshall 30 watt and a Crate XT120R. The Sound I get is really metally, but also clean, and leadish type. The guitar is made for a various(sorry for spelling) types of music styles, it can fit '80s rock and new age metal, because of the Seymour Duncans. I haven't tryed this through my Crate XT120R in full volume, but from what I've played it dosent give much feedback noise.
Overall Impression — 10
It's worth more than what I paid for! Man what a deal! If it were stolen I wouldn't actually buy one because I already have a lot of guitars, if this was my only one then yeah! I love how it looks and feels and plays, but I hate the big hardshell case you have to buy and carry around!
Reliability & Durability — 9
Anything will last if you take proper care of it. I had an little accident because of how the body is shaped. The hardware does seem like it will last, and this guitar would withstand Live playing. I could depend on it, but I'd bring another guitar for backup just in case (you never know). The only problem with it is that it gets fingerprints on it easy.
Action, Fit & Finish — 9
The guitar setup was fine I didn't have any problems with it, and so was the pickups. I'm still a little uncomfortable with the shape, and how to play it. The guitar didn't have any problems but the strap buttons were a little loose, but it's nothing out of this world just grab a scew Drive and your set. I really like how it looks and how it stands out, this guitar will turn some heads around!
