Sound — 10
The sound from this guitar is very nice. I like to play to play mainly metal to classic rock bands like AC/DC and Metaliica and if thats the sound your looking for I would suggest this guitar. Right now I have a Drive CD300 amp it sound great but befor I got that amp I used a Peavy Backstage. The Backstage made a great match for this guitar as far as sound goes. The Drive amp has less powerfull distorsion but has more watts.

Overall Impression — 10
Overall this guitar is great. I've been playing cool tunes for almost 1 year. The S/S/H pickup layout is what I think is best and this guitar has that feature. I went to 3 stores seaching for a quality guitar in my price range (250$ or less) and this was the one for me. I suggest this guitar for any one who's looking for a low price, quality, and great sound.

Action, Fit & Finish — 8
I got this guitar new with one minor (less than 1 sq. inch) paint chip on the back. I didn't really mind because people only noticed it when I showed them. A week after I got it I was unplugging it from the amp and the hexagon nut where the amp plug goes through fell off. It was weird but easily fixed.
