So far, Im very happy. **Sound: 4** The sound from this thing is pretty cool. Since its Ash, its a lot brighter than Im used to. After playing my Mahogany bodied Schecter and my Alder bodied Washburn & Jackson, the brightness of this guitar really stands out, not too much, but enough to really notice. Acoustically, its nice and crisp. Cleans plugged in ring nicely without any kind of crunch when picked hard. The heavy stuff comes through alright if you raise the gain just a tad. Natural harmonics arent as strong as I would like them to be (this could probably be fixed with a few tweeks to the Line 6), but the pinched harmonics ring loud and proud. The overall performance of the stock pickups arent as strong as the DDs in my Schecter, but theyre fine for right now. Maybe in the distant future a pickup change will be arranged, but Im personally satisfied for right now. Im positive real Duncans, EMGs, DiMarzios, etc. would blow these pickups away. **Action, Fit, Finish: 4.5 (this is after Ive adjusted it)** Okay, on the nitty-gritty of the axe. Out of the box, it came set up pretty well and packed very securely. It was out of tune, but since it was shipped from one side of the country to the other (New Hampshire to Reno, Nevada) that didnt bother me at all. The bolt-on style of this thing is that on a typical Stratocaster (completely level). I like the neck pitch to be a tad bit higher than the Stratocaster pitch, so I took some old used Dunlop 50 picks I saved from way back, cut em in half, and shimed the neck. It didnt raise it by much (about 1.5mm) but the feel is just right now. The Licensed Floyd Rose is actually pretty nice. I was kind of worried that it was going to be one of those really cheap string through Floyds you see on the SX guitars from Rondo, but its just like the Licensed Floyds seen on the ESP M-207,307, Schecter C7-FR and so on. The frets on this thing are very nice for a $160 guitar, but when I shimmed the neck, I got a couple dead notes. Thankfully it was only in a few key spots. So I had to file a few of the frets until all of the notes rang loud and clear. It could probably use a total fret leveling, but after the filing I did, all of the notes sound just fine and dandy. As far as overall buzzing, its there, but it doesnt bother me at all (I like a little buzz but just a little). Now, since Im not a trem bar user, the very first thing I did to this guitar right when I took it out of the box was block the Floyd permanently. I took some wood shims and old used picks and set them in. Now its just like a fixed bridge, except now I have the fine tuning advantage of the Floyd (just what I wanted). The other thing I did was remove and rearrange all of the saddles to my liking since I wasnt too fond of how they were arranged in stock form. That wasnt too difficult. Now Ive got the action at the 12th fret to about 2mm which matches my Schecter thus, making it perfect for me. String tension is perfect. Holds tuning pretty well when locked at the nut, but it goes a little flat after some long playing hours with bending (but thats probably my own fault since I didnt spend too much time on intonation). Reaching all of the frets with the fretting hand is nice and smooth. The block neck joint doesnt bother me and the overall thickness of the neck feels nice in my hands. The one thing that is taking some getting used to is the feel of the Floyd Rose. The post where the fine tuners sit is quite challenging to get used to. Since Im used to string through T-O-Ms and Fender style trems, Id probably do better with a low profile Floyd, but Im slowly getting the hang of it. The higher strings (G, B, E) werent as easy for me to pick at a comfortable wrist position at first. The lower strings however, (B, E, A, D) were perfect. The one thing about the guitar that I just noticed not to long ago that kind of annoys me is the actual bolts on the joint. The angle of the bolt plate isnt completely parallel. Its off by 3.5mm or so. But, since its a $160 guitar, it doesnt plague my thoughts that badly, but still The finish on this thing is just fantastic. I can sit and just stare at it for a long time. Now the Ash that makes up the body isnt really wavy Ash like the top is (maybe its White Ash or something), but its Ash none the less. One last thing Ill mention is the input jack. I use an angled jack for the guitar hook up and loop it through the strap so it wont fall out if I step on it. When it isnt looped through the strap, it moves a little out of place and loses the signal. This was easily fixed by loosening the input jack so I could take some needle-nose pliers and bend the holding bar a little towards the input entry. Easily fixed and no problem. **Reliability: 4.5** I dont play live, but I think this thing would do pretty damn well in a live situation. Since I blocked the bridge, string and tuning stability isnt that much of a worry. Plus, put a DiMarzio clip lock strap on it, so no worry about strap stability. The stock strap buttons seemed nice and solid, but I like some kind of strap lock system on my guitars. The overall guitar feels real solid and nice. **Customer Support: 5** The one time I e-mailed Kurt, (it was regarding the Septor a year and a half ago) he was very quick and nice about everything. Plus, after hearing a bunch of stories from reviews on Harmony Central and the folks here, Ive mostly heard nothing but the best. **Overall: 5** When it comes to guitars, Im pretty easy to please. I was planning on buying the black Schecter Omen 7 FR prototype from DCGL, but when I saw this and its price, I was sold.. Its a very nice guitar for such a low price. This guitar is PERFECT for those who would mod the hell outtta the thing. Its also good for those whom might need a cheap guitar quick for their needs. And finally, its great for us poor folk who want a nice guitar for so little. This thing is really cool and I plan on keeping it for as long as I can. Fairly long review, but I wanted to be as in depth as possible. I hope this helps those who are interested in the SR-370.
