Sound — 9
Definately a rock guitar. The amps are pretty decent for a kit guitar, I can't comment much on it because i had it with a 10R frontman amp so that sucked but it still sounded like a legit rock tone. If you put some seymour duncans or any alnico classics on it, you can sound just like Slash but I'm not sure if its good for recording... I guess that depends on your amp and how you mic ur music.
Overall Impression — 10
I love it... The only things I would change is the pickups of course, and even that isnt that much of an issue... And the neck because I love trapezoid inlays which is a preference. Other than that, this guitar is amazing its definitely up there with Epiphone if only it had better pick ups, it would even be better.
Reliability & Durability — 10
God I would say its reliable because it was a kit and it lasted pretty long. I keep dropping it, because my strap sucks!, but nothing happens to it. If anything, you can just sell it as road worn...
Action, Fit & Finish — 8
This one I had a little trouble with. I bought it used and it was in not that good of a shape. It would be considered road worn if anything but the guy said he had it for couple years and it still sounded like butter. The finish is pretty good but the only thing i had trouble with was the head part which said Saga in crappy letter with nothing else on it. Other than that it was such a good guitar and the fretboard was like it was carved by angels, its a smooth run.
Features — 9
I don't really know what year it was made. It is a kit so whatever year you make it is the year I guess. I bought it completed and it was in awesome condition. i dont remmeber the exact scales and such but it is a 22 fret rosewood fretboard and maple for both neck and body. tune-omatic Bridge and 700t-650r humbucker pickups if im correct. The one thing that sucks is its not a trapezoid inlay guitar or else it would be just like an Epiphone.
