Sound — 8
I play classic rock, and some acoustic/electric soft rock, and this guitar fits both styles. I can say that I prefer this guitar's tone without a touch of gain. I use it with a Marshall 100HDFX stack.
Overall Impression — 8
I've been playing for 4 years, and I also own an Epiphone Slasher, Squire Strat that I junk with, and an Ovation Celebrity. This guitar is probably the 2nd best electric guitar I own behind the Epiphone. Like I said, the Position of the strap buttons sucks, so you'll probably want to drop it right away, but dont. I would suggest buying yourself a set of strap locks, but thats it.
Reliability & Durability — 8
I haven't preformed with this guitar, but I can tell that it'll take a beating. I hate the positions of the strap buttons. Maybe it'll just take some getting used to, I have no idea. The finish doesn't wear at all. I don't think I would use it without a back up, just for the fact that nothing bad hasn't happened to this guitar yet, and something usually does with most 200 dollar guitars.
Action, Fit & Finish — 8
This guitar worked very well straight from the factory, the only problem being the tone knob was very loose.
Features — 8
This guitar has 21 frets, with a Rosewood Neck. It has a sweet black, glittery finish, and the body style is unique. It has two volume controls and a tone control. The pickguard is mirrored and shows fingerprints easily.
