Sound — 9
If you play heavy this is the guitar for you! It really has a sound suited perfectly for that genre of music. I'm using it through my Ashdown Fallen Angel stack and a Line6 POD-Xt-Live. It does not have a lot of noise when you are not playing, so it is very comfortable to have when you are not playing. If you want to be making harmonics this is a really great guitar to do that on, because of the EMGs!
Overall Impression — 10
For my metal it is the perfect guitar and it was very cheap (I know that it might seem expensive for you, but guitars are expensive in Denmark), and through my Fallen Angel stack and Line 6 board this guitar really shows what it is worth! If it were stolen or lost I would probably go buy a new one. I love the looks of it, I mean just look at it! It is very light weight which is what I like the most. The fretboard is easy to play on from 0 to 24th fret. I compared it to other brands which actually were more expensive and didn't feature as much as this. This is a guitar you have to try, and maybe buy.
Reliability & Durability — 10
I haven't been playing it at a Live show yet, so I can just say what I think, and I think that this will be killer to have at a Live show! I know that it is a bad idea not to have a backup when you are using Floyd Rose, but I actually think that there is no need for backup here. The finish seems to last and the sound will as well.
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
When I got it I changed the 09 strings with 010, and just played. It can be played straight out of the box. There have been no problems with it so far and I have played it for hours every day for nearly 3-4 months.
