Sound — 10
This Guitar is really great if you play rock or metal. The tone is really great and has much sustain. It totally fits my style because I love hard music. I tried other guitar before but this one is so much better. I am using it with a Line 6 spider 30 amp and the guitar has the best sound with it when you play with the bridge pickup. You can do many sounds with the guitar because of that really great Floyd Rose tremolo which makes amazing divebombs.
Overall Impression — 10
This Guitar is SO awesome for hard music like hard rock or metal. I love it.The sound that comes out of the guitar is totally what I expected! I would instantly buy it again if it would be stolen. The best Feature of that really great looking guitar is the Floyd Rose Tremolo. Only the Pickups aren't that good, but you could buy better ones and for that low price I paid I can not complain.
Reliability & Durability — 10
What I can say for now is that - this guitar is made for Live playing! I use this guitar now for 1 year on Live shows and it looks and sounds like new. The strap buttons are very solid,but of course it could be that they come loose some time. With this guitar you don't nedd a backup. I hope the finish will always be that good.
Action, Fit & Finish — 8
The Action from the factory was great but could have been better(tuned a little bit better). The pickups were well adjusted but were a bit rusty. The guitar had no scratches dents or anything. The pickup selecter makes little noises but that is not upsetting me.
