I put a 8 because I find it unfortunate that there is only one ale knobs for the two microphones.
So there ...
The handle is a nice! Super fast but not too late we feel we have a scratch on hand but this is not a log. It is a form of strat 'so no complaints in terms of ergonomics.
As for the sound is very precise (EMG ESP 81 + quality ...) but one side is a shame that there have not put an EMG 60 EMG 85 or a history of making the animal more versatile. The sound is very powerful, plug on the Mesa-Boogie or ENGL and you cry
I play mainly heavy metal and hard rock. I do a little blues on occasion. It is therefore almost perfectly. Group no longer I play mostly at home with a pod X3 (yes I know it sucks but hey ...) The sound is always perfect just need to adjust the amps correctly. In this distortion of happiness on the other hand to clean it sounds not super great. You really have the lamp and proper adjustment in order to take full advantage of the ability to scratching.
It's been a year and a half that I played with this guitar and apart from the clean sound a bit cold and the fact that there have 2 EMG 81 I find this great scratching. I'm not ready to change.
