Sound — 10
This guitar has a perfect sound for hardrock, or metal. You can also get a good clean tone out of it. It has an unbelievably good sound. There is absolutly no buzzing. Not to mention the great sustain that the string-thru body adds. If like playing solos I suggest getting this guitar.
Overall Impression — 10
This guitar is a perfect match to the music that I play. I play anything from blues to metal. I've been playing for about 11 months, this is my 5th guitar. I also have an Epiphone Les Paul, and an Epiphone PR-150 acoustic. If it were damaged in anyway, I would take it back and buy a new one. The Seymour Duncan Humbuckers give it a great sound. The grover tuners make it stay in tune. The string-thru body makes it very easy to re-string. The 24 frets and smooth neck allow for great soloing. Not to mention the great appearance. I compared this to a Fender Strat, and a Fat Strat, and it blew them both away. This guitar is perfect all the around.
