Sound — 9
I've started to play a lot of heavier and experimental stuff, I primarily play a Gibson Les Paul Standard, and bought this guitar because I needed one with a Floyd Rose tremolo, and the two octave range was very appealing, it has quite a unique range of sounds, mainly because the bridge pickup is coil-tapped to be used as a single coil aswell as a humbucker. Lately I've been playing alot of thrash and metal through a Roland Cube 30 with a Dunlop CryBaby Classic, and I can't really fault it, there is some minor fret-buzz, but that's the only problem I've experienced.
Overall Impression — 9
I've been playing nearly 2 years now, and this suites me down to the ground. I love the floyd rose, and the range of sounds available. Overall I'm very impressed with the quality of this guitar, and if it was lost or stolen I would replace it immeadiately.
Reliability & Durability — 9
I haven't played live, but if I was playing live with this, I wouldn't need a backup, but If I was playing live, I'd be using my Les Paul. The strap buttons are solid, and the finish doesn't wear, overall I find this guitar very durable.
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
The action is very smooth, very easy to play. There are no real problems with the bridge that I know of, but I wouldn't know what they were until I was more experienced with a floyd rose. The hardware is all gold plated and it hasn't tarnished and the finish is perfect, it is in excelent condition, and would be quite easy to keep it that way.

I'll start off with what I don't know, and that's the country of origin, and year of 'birth.' Sorry if that's the info you needed.
