Sound — 10
I'm playing mostly heavy metal, trash metal, progressive rock, with that guitar.It suit my style perfecly! I'm using a Mesa Boogie F-50, you can't imagine how it sound until you hear it. I've got MXR-151 doubleshot distortion and MXR Zack Wylde Overdrive. Honestly I'm not using them, I don't need it. Sometime I use my doubleshot for the focus. This guitar isn't noisy at all. You can play any metal or rock you want with that guitar, even blues.
Overall Impression — 10
I'm playing Megadeth, A7X, Metallica, GN'R, and a lot more. This guitar is a really good match. I'm playing for 2 years. I own a Gibson ES-137 and a Godin Freeway Classic. If that guitar were stolen, I would first seek and destroy the one Who did that. And then I would run buy a another one. I love the set-neck, the original floyd rose and the emg active pickup. I compare it to the LTD JH-600 or the ESP M-II EMG.
Reliability & Durability — 9
This guitar is made for live playing, really easy to play. Everything on that guitar is quality, the hardware will last for sure. I've change the strap buttons for lock strap buttons, but the original look solid. When your playing with a floyd rose you should always have a backup, but if there were no floyd rose, no need. The finish is great, not even a tiny scratch on mine.
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
The set-up was perfect when I received it, the action and the pickups were perfect. The floyd roses original was perfecly adjusted. It's really a biotch when it's not. There is no flaws on that guitar. The finish is beautiful, the gloss black is so nice! I'm glad that those guitar are set in the US.
