Sound — 10
Plays wonderful for Rock and / or country and even Blues. Sound is incredible, strong and clear. Played through Marshall 1/2 stack and Fender Deluxe Twin. A little verb, chorus and or distortion. This neck is fast and plays like butter. Frets are clean and nicelt shaped.

Overall Impression — 10
A bit of everything and it fills the bill 100%. Playing 15 years and own Fenders, Washburns, Gibson LP's, Ovation acoustics. This guitar is superior to them and for a fraction of the cost! I'd cry if it was stolen. New orders take up to 6 months and I'd replace asap. I love everything about this guitar and appreciate the workmanship and support I got with this guitar. Sounds and looks pretty! X 10! Fender Tele can not compare. This is more like a Fender Custom Shop tele that cost about $2500 more than I paid.

Reliability & Durability — 10
Played live numerous times and never fails. Will purchase another Custom as soon as I have the green. This is one of many guitars that I play live. It in my eyes is not a backup. Finish appears to be very durable and is a tank. Hardware is all named brand, Warmans, Wilkinson, Graphtech.

Action, Fit & Finish — 10
Setup was perfect, pickups sweet. Strung with Elixir Lights. Guitar was perfectly put together. Fit and finish is awesome. This is a one of a kind, Custom guitar made with care. Decked out with Custom knobs and is just so sweet looking. This guitar had NO FlAWS and all work is hand done by Mike and Al from MikAl Customs.

    Straight 10's? Ermmm... no thanks, I'll wait for the next, slightly less biased/useless review
