Purchased from: Pawn Shop

Sound — 7
No when I started playing, and I finally learned iron man, it sounded great, but as I progressed through many classic rock riffs and solos I realized that the guitar is very easy to loose tune, I find my self tuning it after every time I bend allot. I own a Mega VL-10 and the overdrive is decent but the distortion from the amp is sometimes lacking.

Overall Impression — 9
This guitar suits classic rock fine. From Cream to Black Sabbath to Blue Oyster Cult it can do it all and still sound decent. I have been playing for a year now and I am quite comfortable with it. The only thing I wish this guitar had more of is distortion recommend it to anyone starting to learn to play.

Reliability & Durability — 9
The guitar is solid, it has survived almost a year with me and I am a spas, I am always banging it on walls and dropping it on the way to my lesson, and one time when I brought it to school it slid out of the back of my gig bag, but to my amazement it only suffered a minor scratch.

Action, Fit & Finish — 7
The only problems with the guitar were minor, suck as a bent string nod or the input jack wobbling loose, also mine did not come with a whammy bar.

I bought this guitar from a pawn shop and it was in OK condition. I didn't really know guitars that much, seeing how this one would be my first. I did a little research on the guitar and, it is probably made in Mexico. It has 3 pickups, 22 frets and I think the neck wood is maple, and there an oak decorative line downs the centre. When I bought it the strings that were on it were rusted and worn so I replaced them with standard electric. It has a red body and a cream colored faceplate. Also I hate the faceplate and I cannot change it because it does not take standard fit!
