CAt in the HAt

Features: wow, it is impressive. For almost 3 times less than a Gibson Les Paul, you get basically all the same features. 22 frets, mahogany neck, mahogany/alder body, tune-o-matic bridge, single cutaway, and 2 great sounding humbuckers.
Sound: For mostly classic rock,this thing is GOD  but it suits punk, blues, and metal perfect as well. It sounds great with a Marshall amp, with no ‘buzzing’. If your looking for a full rich sound, this is the best guitar you can buy.

Action, Fit & Finish: The finish is brilliant. The pickups were adjusted perfect, and especially like the Tune-O-Matic bridge. The tuning pegs are great, and hold tune very very well, and they look very nice also. The only problem with most models is that the top strap button comes off, and it looked like the hole was drilled to big for the screw, but hopefully that will be covered in the warranty. Highly recommended.

Reliability & Durability: This guitar is a beast! It is so bulky and feels like it can survive anything you can dish at it. Very very solid. The finish is very very solid as well, and looks like it will last a long long time.

Impression: For the money, you cant beat it. If it were lost/stolen, I would definetely buy another, or a Gibson, but I love the Les Paul model so much. I only wish it had a tremolo bar! But an excellent overall guitar.
