Sound — 8
Its a very good guitar for heavy riffing and shredding on the higher strings, but it sounds really strange when its clean and it isn't really good for blues or slow rock. For instance, if you're playing a song that goes from clean to distorted, you have to take the time to switch you toggle switch the neck pickup setting, turn down your tone a bunch and then roll of some gain. Maybe its just me though (I you a really small practice amp and a Boss ME-20 pedal. Other than that, it's a great guitar.
Overall Impression — 9
Its a great guitar overall. Good for heavy stuff like Metallica, etc.
Reliability & Durability — 10
Great durability, I'd use it anywhere I play (I don't play in front of audiences a lot though).
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
There are absolutely no flaws in the making of this guitar, although for a guitar with EMG pickups, it takes a while to fix the distortion.
