Sound — 10
Well it depends which guitar you have it on. If you have it on a grunge guitar you get a grainy sound. But if you have it on a 12 string you get a mellow and soft sound. The sound has a lot of diversity, I give it a 5 out of 5.

Overall Impression — 10
I play metal to country to jazz to blues! This is really a good all around guitar! If you playing punk rock or mabey grunge then you Switch to a Strat or a fire bird! Or metal; A Silver jet Gretsch! This guitar has it all!

Reliability & Durability — 8
The durability of this song will survive concerts and even party's with drinking. Beleive me I've used it ;) The strap buttons are solid so they wont break under the preasute of the guitar strap. The only bad thing is that it's a little harder to play standing up because its heavy and at a different angle. But you could say all guitars are that way!

Action, Fit & Finish — 10
The factory set up was perfecto mound'e! The black paint was brisk and smooth, and the Pick guard was polished to prefection. There were also no splinters in the neck or on the frets. Also, the strings were at the right height!
