I think this is a very good guitar. I read the other reviews and wanted to say I have not experienced any of the unpleasant issues that the other posts mention. My Roland Ready Stratocaster sounds great either plugged in normally or as a synth guitar through my Roland VG-99. Frets are well done and dressed nicely, the neck is perfect, the pickups are very good. The built in GK tracks better than my Godin Xt or Godin Freeway. The quality of the guitar seems to be somewhere between a regular $600 MIM Stratocaster and a $1200 American Standard Stratocaster. For the money, I think this is a very good guitar. I recommend it.
The fretwires are as soft as mud. I was wondering why the pickups sounded so plain - the specs say, "standard single coil pickups" not even fender. The S-1 button cover fell off and is still a missing mystery! The roland tracking is the only really good thing about this guitar. But don't expect good guitar tones - just good synth tones.
I bought this to retire my 78' Strat. This guitar is a little cleaner looking with the GK integrated into the guitar. I've had it long enough to go through a set of frets and except for some wear on the back of the neck it still looks great.
