Sound — 10
It goes great with my music style of hard rock, I use a Fender G-DEC and a Boss DS-1, it's really noisy on U14-Underworld, it's a really hard distortion exspecially with the Boss pedal. But other than that it has a rich sound. It can a few special sounds that I've heard guitarist do and I tried but I can't do all of them.
Overall Impression — 10
Hard rock is what I play and this is a good match for it. I've been playing for three years but I got his in February 26, 2008. I own guitar effects and one amp, I also own a old Acoustic guitar. No there is nothing I wished I had said. I'd buy it again. It's great, I love it, there is no down side to it. My favorite features would have to be the body, it's so creative and everything. I compared it to an Ibanez and a Black Strat with a whammy. I chose this one because it sounded the best and it looked amazing. It really doesn't need anything else.
Reliability & Durability — 10
It will withstand Live playing, not all the hardware will last but I don't really know, the strap buttons are solid, of course I can depend on it, it's an amazing guitar, I might use it without any backup, it's an old guitar but the finish is like new and it doesn't wear off while I play.
Action, Fit & Finish — 7
It was set up great overall I think it's the best guitar I'm going to have. The pickups were adjusted just right when we got the guitar, there is a properly routed bridge, there was no flaw it was used and I still think it was better than the Strat. (Just a little dust everywhere and used strings)
