Sound — 9
I play rock, so this guitar suits just fine. To me, this guitar sounds identical to an Epiphone Les Paul. I use it with a Fender 15W Frontman, and a Marshall 30GFX. It sounds perfect. It has a nice rich tone that can go from rock and punk, to blues and country. However, this guitar does not match the power of a Les Paul. Sometimes I get a buzzing noise if a TV or vaccume is on.
Overall Impression — 9
I am a rocker, and this guitar matches perfectly. I have been playing for 4 years, this is my second guitar (I have 4). I will never let it get stolen. The thing I love the most about the guitar is the cost. I can't believe I got this good of a guitar for such a little cost. I chose to compare it to an Epiphone les paul because they sound similar and look identical. I do wish it would have come with duncan designed pickups.
Reliability & Durability — 10
I have had this guitar for 3 years, and it is still awesome. The chrome is still in good shape and none of the hardware has tarnished. The finish hasn't worn off. I would use this for a gig w/out a backup.
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
Like I said before, identical to a Epiphone Les Paul. I didn't have to adjust anything when I got it. The finish and everything was perfect. It is truely a beautiful guitar.
