Peavey: Raptor Plus EXP

Price paid: $ 200

Purchased from: Music Store

Sound — 10
I generally like the sound of my guitar. My amp has bad distortion, causing it to not sound good while on distortion. A good full sound when appropriatly tuned. Overall I like it (it actually plays well acoustic for an electric guitar).

Overall Impression — 10
I play punk/rock music for a local band with my friends. It works fine for this purpose. I havent owned this guitar for very long. I also own a Monster Cable which I love, a Planet Waves strap which is ok, a Peavey amp which is pretty good. Various picks. If it were stolen or lost I would probably get the same model but a different color, or maybe on second thought I should get a better guitar, Naw it's fine. Love the sound, hate the accessories that came with it. Didn't really compare to other products.

Reliability & Durability — 10
It plays well live. Nothing except for the crappy accessories that came with it have broken. The strap buttons seem solid. I'd most definately use it without a backup. The finish is fine. High marks.

Action, Fit & Finish — 10
I was very pleased with the way I got it except for parts of the paint job. Everything else was excellent no internal problems that needed fixing. Very pleased.

Features — 8
Made pretty recently, 21 frets, volume, tone and 5-way selector, 4 pickups. Included an amp, gig bag, a crappy strap (that I had to 'fix' but it didn't work so I ended up buying a new one), a crappy cable (replaced within a week), extra strings, lesson DVD, and a confusing tuner (found a better computer program tuner). Pretty basic I guess.
