I have just purchased one about two months ago and this is a great guitar. It sounds very good and is an excellent starter guitar. I would suggest this to anyone whom is not interested in spending a whole lot of money, but wants something that will play. One problem I have found is that when you plug this guitar into your amp, the port can get loose on the guitar and the sound can go in and out. That might be unique to mine, though.
This guitar is really great. I started playing two years ago on acoustic, and this was my first electric. It has good hand manuverability, sounds great, and is an all around great guitar. My cousin who's been playing guitar for 7 years said this was a really good guitar and good buy as well. I still play mine all the time, and love everything about it.
For the price this guitar rocks. I use a Gibson SG and in general don't like the Strat sound, to twaggy. I have a student who plays a Squire Fat Strat and I was amazed on how well the guitar was set-up from the factory. The action is low but, still playable for a beginner, with a few quick adjustments it could be really a fast actioned guitar. The stock strings are even OK but, I like 9's. With a few wiring 'Hot Rods' this could be a very unique guitar. The humbucker at the bridge gives a warm tone that a regular Strat cannot even get close to. I recommend it for a beginner or a working musician that don't want to beat his stage guitar up.
I've had this guitar (or one very similar) for about 4 years now. I received it for Christmas, and it was my first guitar, so it was used quite a lot back then, and even now, with 5 more guitars, 3 trumpets, 2 mandolins, a drumset, and a keyboard, I still use this because its an amazing guitar. I've got guitars from cheapo decorations to epiphone lps but this one is still prolly my fav. It looks great and has help up amazingly. Great value, and the colored headstock is amazing. If you're thinking about getting it I have no negative feedback.
I bought this guitar for my first Electric. I was pumped when I got it. I sounded great untill... the wiring around the volume pot. started shorting out. So I had to have new wires ran through the guitar. After that it worked for about three months, and it is on the fritz again. So if you buy one good luck. sounds great when it is working.
