Sound — 10
I play a lot of grunge, and SOAD, and other stuff, like some reasonably soft, and other hardcore metal. I use a 60 watt Crate amp. I have like 16 effects on my amp. On extreme OD and/or on my death metal pedal it's not buzzy but it's loud and great sound. Great for OD and distortion.
Overall Impression — 10
Metal, grunge, stuff like that. Very very very good match, true love. A few years. I have a 60 watt crate amp. Ibanez GRX20. Fender Jaguar. Small clone pedal, death metal pedal, bad monkey pedal, grunge pedal. No, just play it before you buy to make sure you like it, I did. I definitely would buy another if something happened to it, but mines got a good warranty on it. Everything, the look, the action, the feel, just a great guitar to play with. Don't really hate anything about it. My favorite feature is my humbuckers were custom and have built in distortion and I got mine to where my tone dial is now a wah, extremely awesome. Yeh I compared it to some Randy Rhoads guitar but I couldn't sit down and play it so I didn't like it, uhhh some other Ibanez's and a few Jackson Dinky's. This one just fit me the best for the gigs I play and music styles.
Reliability & Durability — 10
It's a great show guitar to play during gigs, people go crazy seeing it, really hardcore look. Sounds good even with lots of wattage and additional speakers. Should last a long time, nothing to worry about. I always bring a backup to a gig incase a string breaks or sumthin but nothing really electronically will go wrong with it during a gig. Finish should be fine, shows fingerprints and stuff like that bad though.

Great action. Pickups were fine when I got it, some adjusting required though, depends what your playing. bridge was fine, Jacksons usually need neck adjustments. Great guitar, nothing really wrong with it.
