Sound — 10
Well as I play things like Lostprophets, story of the year this guitar straight away gave me the tone I wanted I have it tuned to Drop as of current hasent come out of tune yet! Even after playing for a gig the thing is still in tune! The 5-way rotary switch hasn't been a probelm since I only use two settings one for clean and one for distorted. The Guitar sounds great has to be the best sounding guitar I have owned/played (played for 6 years owened Strats, Ibanez RGs, Jacksons and played on many Gibson USA Les Pauls). I run it through a Marshall AVT Head.
Overall Impression — 10
The guitar is perfect for the music I play far better than any other guitar I have owned and proberly ever will own (less I decide to get myself another Custom 22) If it were lost and stolen I would go out and buy another one straight away as these guitars are by far the best guitar I have played. The feature I love the most is the thiness of the guitar it makes it so comfortable to play. The neck is awesome! What more can I say the best guitar I have owned or played. I may get another one as a backup in a differnt color black cherry perhapes but for now I content with this beauty!
Reliability & Durability — 10
Live this guitar is flawless doesnt't go out of tune, The hardware seems like it could last a lifetime (although for the price is should do). The strap buttons are solid don't appear like they would come loose. I would basicly gig with this guitar without a backup as I am pretty much certain I wouldn't have any problems. I think the finish as it stands I good but maybe aster a few years of regular gigging it may Start to get chipped but that's most likely down to wear and tear not the actual qulaity of the finish.
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
Finish is awesome very stunning gets a lot of attention onstage and is awesome to look at. The guitar is mega thin which really apeals to me as I like thin and ligh guitars as apose to the les paul. The action is the best I have seen very low yet does not buzz against the pickups. The neck is very comfortable to play which makes a change for me as normally I am very picky with necks. The bird inlays look awesome just making the guitars appearance really nice.
