Sound — 10
I'm using this thing with a Behringer GM108 15 watt and Marshall MG250DFX and it gets great sound on both. It's great for anything, but especially metal and rock. This thing has a great low range and is perfect for power chords.

Overall Impression — 10
I play mostly rock and punk rock and this thing has held up wonderfully. If it were stolen I would buy it again but possibly in electrice blue instead of black. For the price, this thing is the best sound you can get. Only thing it needs is possibly some Seymour Duncan pickups on it.

Reliability & Durability — 10
This thing is built like a tank. You could drop it and not have ot worry about it not working. The strap buttons are as solid as it gets. I do use this thing for gigs without a backup.

Action, Fit & Finish — 8
The action on this was pretty good overall but there was some buzzing on the lower frets which was easy to fix. Also had a scratch but that was just unlucky of me.

Features — 8
This thing has 24 jumbo frets, maple neck, rosewood fingerboard. The body is basswood. It's got the Tune-O-Matic bridge and string thru body which gives it sick sustain but can cause a bit of trouble when your changing the strings. 1 volume, 1 tone, three way Switch. This thing stays in tune for a loong time. If your a beginner be careful because it lacks a pick gaurd. Be nice if it had more than one tone and volume knobs but its real good the way it is. Dust always seems to be stuck in the pickups and it can be a pain to clean out.
