Sound — 10
It sounds pretty good. It has good, clean sound. You feel like a pro with it. I'm using a 10 watt amp combo that came with it, it sounds very good for its size, it has a single on/off button for Drive (distortion). I play a variety of genres, all of them based in rock (alternative, rock, grunge, some metal riffs, etc). It fits great with my needs.

Overall Impression — 10
In general, this guitar is great for a beginner and even intermediates. I've been playing with it like 2 years now. If it were stolen or lost, I would rapidly go and buy another one like this, or if I had the money buy an Ibanez, Fender or my biggest wish: a Gibson Les Paul. But for my average income this guitar is great, of course I would buy it again. I kind of dislike the design.

Reliability & Durability — 10
You can highly depend on it. Asbeing my first electric guitar, I don't jump and run all over the practice room or in friend's parties because I fear to break it, but once in a while friends of mine do it and nothing has happened to it (I think I'll practice some jumps and acrobatics with it).

Action, Fit & Finish — 10
It has good, classis shape. It is solid, and all the materials are of high quality. The only missing part was a G string, which didn't bother me.

Nice Guitar with all what you can wish for (if you're a beginner obviously).

    I like this guitar it has pretty good sound. Its a great guitar to play around on. It would be the best sounding guitar i have found for the price.
