Sound — 7
THis guitar is really really good for sound. It has few flaws if your a beginner, but for the more experienced guitar player, it's a bit difficult to work with. the constant buzzing of the humbucker makes it difficult for tone-chasers. I play mostly metal and hard rock, and it sounds really good with a lot of distortion, and I can get a really rich, creamy sound out of the Neck pickup with the tone turned down to about 5. If I were playing Classic Rock like Cream or Jimi Hendrix, this is a really good guitar. it's definitely got a bright tone to it, but it's got a warmth to it at the same time
Overall Impression — 7
This guitari s perfect for any kind of music you like to play. I play preferablly metal, and it works out perfectly. You could play coutry, soft rock, latin, and jazz and it would still sound great. I have been playing for about a year. I own a Fender G-DEC Junior Amp and it seems to be really working out. If it were stolen or lost... I'd die. I love the feel of the unfinished neck, it makes playing much easier. I hate the trem system. if it were a Floyd Rose I'd be much happier. I wish it had dual humbuckers instead of 2 singlecoils and a humbucker
Reliability & Durability — 9
This guitar is really durable. The strap buttons are crap, so the strap comes off easily, and the guitar could drop out of your hands, but the guitar will be perfectly fine with a short drop. it's really good. Buy new strap buttons, it's really quite reliable. I'd definitely gig with it
Action, Fit & Finish — 8
The Action on this guitar is relatively low, I suggest adjusting the bridge a bit to heighten the action. also, you can take a truss rod to the neck and adjust the action that way, but doing so, you run the risk of your neck snapping. Everything on this guitar can be adjusted and fine-tuned to your needs. I like my pickups and bucker to be close to the strings, to give me a brighter tone. Thisguitar is and was perfect when i bought it with little to no flaws.
