Sound: sound quality is 10 out of 10 being compared with a Strat and an Ibanez JEM and using the same rig each time with same settings Feature: Not a lot of features .........tremelo or multiple knobs. Just a volume knob and that's all this instrument needed Ease of Use: Just plug it in and play..........right out of the box it perfect Quality: Yes, made well and I'm familiar with Charvel dating back to the 80's. I never had a problem with the San Dimas originals and they were played hard and long for years Value: I thought it was a little expensive but then again it is also the best in my collection of high quality instruments and has top billing. I cannot imagine what would play and sound better Manufacturer Support: Yes ,we go way back to the 80's when I owned 4 of them at the same time. I was a good client with this company and they have always been good to me The Wow Factor: 5 out of 5 stars . Looks great and sounds even better Overall: Outstanding instrument in every way...........I bought one last month and have played it every single day and there are zero issues. I own a Srtat and Ibanez ( JEM 77P ) and had owned 4 Charvels circa 1980's San Dimas originals. I debated buying a Charvel as I believed there was no way they would or could match the 80's models and I'm here to say this one has proved me wrong thankfully ! This has quickly become the go-to instrument of choice and it had tough competition with the JEM 77P. But facts are facts and this rather expensive instrument has won hands down. I've played guitar since the 80's and am building a recording studio this year and this will be used for recording purposes no doubt. zZounds has been completely excellent to work with answering any questions and getting the products shipped quickly and with no damage whatsoever. I spent a lot of time comparison shopping in the past and turns out there was no point . They have provided me with a Marshall Cabinet , Egnater amp , wireless setup and now this guitar. I honestly won't hesitate to buy again when the time is right !
