Sound — 10
The emgs make your guitar sing. The sound great are very activate and are extremely quite when not playing. The sound of them is very sharp (maybe a little thin)but it still great. One thing is I would not recommend this guitar for blues or something it is made for the soul purpose of heavy metal and hard rock!
Overall Impression — 10
This is a perfect metal beast it is amazing for what it is meant for and you can not go wrong with this guitar. Jackson makes great guitars with the best stuff for the best price. If it were lost or stolen I would definitely buy another one but first I would beat up the guy who stole it from me. I highly recommend this guitar above anything else out on the market Jackson product all the way for metal!
Reliability & Durability — 9
This guitar seems extremely well built and will be able to withstand all punishment that gets thrown at it in the future. The hardware is all high quality and sturdy the finish is thick and I would probably not have this guitar without a backup just because of the Floyd Rose and that I always like to plan for the worst.
Action, Fit & Finish — 9
When I recieved this brand new out of the box it was setup up perfectly the picks and even the Floyd Rose where already done. All I had to do was pick it up and start playing. This guitar was perfect no flaws and was just about perfect. The only thing was the strings it came with completely wrecked the guitars sound so I recommend replacing them right away.

This guitar is amazing and has almost anything you ever need and more. This guitar comes with an origianl Floyd Rose (FRT-O2000 double-locking tremolo) dual EMG pickups (emg 81 bridge and 85 neck). This gutiar has 24 jumbo frets on a rosewood fretboard. The neck is also extremely thin and makes it beautiful to play! It also comes with the whammy bar a battery a custom fitted case and tools for the floyd rose.
