Sound — 10
I play alot of everything...Mostly Metal and classic Hard Rock. This guitar with it's stock gear is just as powerfull as my guitars with active gear. Beefy hard hitting when you need it to be and when you need a very clean cut sound it cuts through like an angel singing in your ear! Ok maybe not that good but still..very very pretty. There is absolutely no background hum and if your looking for a guitar to play good boppy rock to metal.. this is the guitar.
Overall Impression — 10
If you like an odd looking guitar, something that makes you stand out of stage or around friends..this is an excellent guitar. It has the scream of the devil and the song of angels. Whenever I play with this thing I get all weird and start playing kiss tunes heh.
Reliability & Durability — 10
I have thrown it in disgust of my amp head blowing tubes. And not a mark has shown up on this baby. I would use this guitar for anything anytime.
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
Action is very nice, the finish is extremely nice with the bevels on the points of the guitar being blood red and the rest of the body (neck included) being black with a sparkle to it. There was no flaws on the guitar when I had obtained it.
