Maverick: F-1

Purchased from: Steel City Guitars

Sound — 8
It suits my music needs really well because I listen to and play mainly Iron Maiden and Metallica songs which usually have a lot of distortion involved and this guitar.

Overall Impression — 8
Overall I'm glad I chose it but I would recommend it to people who my sort of music because it can get a bit rowdy sometimes. I would not get it again if it was stolen. I have compared it to a 15 year old Jackson Kelly which sounded better but it was a bit battered so it was second choice.

Reliability & Durability — 10
Since I've never used my guitar in a gig I won't answer that question but it keeps it's cool after long hours of killing it seems to have lasted quite a long time.

Action, Fit & Finish — 8
The Tremelo broke after a day and thats it everything else is fine.

The pickups are humbucker, there are 24 frets which are medium my tremello is a Floyd rose product (it's awsome). The neck is rosewood and the body basswood, it has a laminated top which is blue. My controls are 3-way. And when I purchased this I got the amp for 1 pound yes 1 pound! And it's not bad either it's a Fender Champion 300 worth 200 and I got a gig case free.
