Sound — 8

  • How does it suit your music style (and what is that style)? It suits my blues slow rock and pop music as well as mellow music
  • What amps and effects are you using it with? RJ GFB20R and DIY bazz fuzz + distortion and digital reverb
  • Is it noisy? On what settings? Rich/Full sound? Bright sound? It's noisy at distortion and fuzz effect bridge and neck pickup and she gets the mellow sound when i turn the settings to neck pickup and bright sound to bridge pickup settings
  • What kind of sounds can the guitar make? How much variety? A lot of sound

Action, Fit & Finish — 6

  • How well was the guitar set-up at the factory: Good but you need to change strings and re setup the pickup to get the perfect sound
  • How well were the pickups adjusted: perfect I adjust the height of the neck pickup same as the height of the finger board and the height of the bridge pickup is near to the height of the bridge
  • Properly routed bridge: Yes
Poorly fit saddle and it has a rusty truss rod nut now I can't adjust the truss because it has the rusty nut and it became stripped.

Reliability & Durability — 6

  • Will this guitar withstand live playing: Yes
  • Does the hardware seem like it will last: yes
  • Are the strap buttons solid : yes
  • Can you depend on it: Yes
  • Would you use it on a gig without a backup: I think so but I always needed a back up strings to make sure that I can use this till the end of the gig
  • Is the finish good enough to last, or does it seem thin and easy to wear off with lots of playing: Yes but the playing time will depend on your string life I'm using generic .012 strings 456 are from D'Addario 1 year old .012 always mend to broken at hard rock songs.

Overall Impression — 8
It suits my slow rock song style. RJ GFB20R Distortion and buzz fuzz. Noisy at next and bridge position using distortion it is bright at bridge pickup. All around it sound perfectly on White Lion's, Paramore and Eric Clapton's genre. The bridge and neck pickup + distortion is perfect in playing wonderful tonight. The bridge and neck pickup at clean section is perfect in playing "Tears in Heaven." Bridge pickup + distortion is perfect in playing "Till Death Do Us Part" and "Halik" by Aegis. The bridge at clean section is perfect in playing the only exception.
