Sound — 7
I play hardcore punk which is quite suited in this guitar. The amp is usually on distort and The guitar quickly adapts and plays smoothly. The guitar can go from a high, Chinese like music all the way down to a medium bass volume, which is very helpful to the songs I play.
Overall Impression — 9
This guitar is over all a perfect starter guitar. It is almost like a huge deal on a a 800$ guitar now on for 250$ It lasts and is great. I would buy it again if nething happened to it.
Reliability & Durability — 9
I am almost certain that this guitar will be suited for live paly. You can rely on it and not need a back up and if you are in practice and it does break, you have the life time waranty to back you up. The strap buttons are solid and attached all the way into the inside of the guitar. The finish is nice and thick, and very chip resistant.
Action, Fit & Finish — 9
This guitar was set up perfectly. It had no chips, loose screws or strings, and was perfectly adjusted. THe pickups were in teh right spot. giving an extra distorion pick up.
Features — 8
When I bought my guitar I bought from the Octave music centre. It came with a life time waranty and a replacement during any repair times. The finish is a nice sleak sunburst giving it the look as if the edges were burned. It is givin 2 volume and tone knobs as well as a distort Switch. It is giving an extra pickup over most guitars (most have 3, this has 4) and the sound is amzing.
