Sound — 10
This fits my style perfectly. I'm not much for Strats and Teles, because I like a thick, LP-like neck. And this guitar brings the sound of a Strat and an LP neck together. It's awesome. The Coil Tap is prefect for blues, softer rock, stuff like that (Clapton, Hendrix, etc.). I use it through a Fender FM65 DSP and it works beautifully. Clean tone, Metal tone, it sounds awesome.
Overall Impression — 10
I play everything, and this guitar accommodates well to my styles. I've been playing for about a year, and I own an Epiphone Les Paul Custom. If this guitar was stole or lost... I'd go berserk and kill whoever stole it... or buy a new one.
Reliability & Durability — 10
This guitar withstands live playing without a backup, most definitely. The hardware is perfect, though I'll probably upgrade the pick-ups. The Strap-buttons are just fine, no problems there. The finish... it's nearly indestructible. Ok, not THAT good, but perfect as long as you don't plan on throwing it on the ground too much.
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
The action is perfect for me. I like a nice, low action. The pick-ups were a tad low, but that wasn't a problem. The Bridge and the hardware are all finely set up. There's no flaws really, it's quite a guitar.
Features — 10
This is an amazing guitar for any genre of music. The body is very light, but there's still tons of sustain. Grover tuners, Seymour Duncan Pick-ups. Volume for each pick-up, and a coil-tap swtich. 3-way Pick-up Switch. 22 Jumbo frets. Awesome in-lays, I mean really, way better than any others.
