Sound — 10
I play metal type of stuff, like Metallica and Pantera but I also play stuff like Led Zep and Santana. I even play some Beethoven. Works for all of them. I use a Drive CD 200 and it has built in distortion, sounds fantastic, not noisey at all. Has a nice full sound great sustain n what not. Everything about this guitar is great.
Overall Impression — 8
I play anything that sounds good to me, from Slayer to Beethoven. It works for all. I've been playing for 1 year and 7 months. Give or take. I have a Hohner Acoustic and a Drive 20 watt amp. If this were stolen. I would hunt the guy down. If I couldn't find him I would buy a new one. I'm actually thinking about buying a NTB series V-type. My favorate feature has to be the neck, it's really small so you can go super fast with alot of ease. I wish it had a Floyd Rose Original not a licensed one.
Reliability & Durability — 10
I would and will definatly take this to a live gig, its one of the most solid guitars I've ever played nothing on this guitar seems to budge at all. Would I take this to a gig without a backup. You bet.
Action, Fit & Finish — 8
Right out of the factory, it's was almost perfect. The Action was dead on, but the pickups were a little too high, but not too bad. I bought the refurbrished one, I can't tell why it was taken back to the factory, nor do I care, its great all around. I had some problem with the Floyd Rose, but it was my own fault, it's fixed now.
