This is a great guitar for the price. I picked it up and am really impressed with the quality for the price. The guitar is a little heavy but it still feels right when you hold it. It plays so much easier than my last guitar, very easy to fret. It has very good sustain. The sound is what sold me this guitar. I was looking at Epiphones, but after plugging up and playing in the store I knew right then that I wanted this guitar. My only complaints are that the low E string has the tiniest bit of fret buzz, and there are only one volume and tone knobs. Other than those two little things, this is an amazing guitar.
Sounds surprizingly good through all my amps, both solid state and tube amps. Pickups are somewhat mellow sounding, a pleasant surprise for a guitar in this price range. Does not come with a case.
I've had this guitar since early december now, and I'm pretty happy with it. The only real problem It has is a bunch of buzz on the low E string. but I figure I can fix that by adjusting the bridge soon, so I won't worry about it. This guitar sounds mean clean or with any kind of heavy distortion. Fairly versatile as far as playing different styles is concerned. As far as the feel of this guitar goes..it's pretty good. I kind of made a harsh decision in the store when i bought this one, the fretboard didnt feel quite right on my fingers at first, and its quite heavy, but now I'm so used to it that it feels perfect. This guitar is solid. It's set neck construction lends some pretty good sustain too. All in all, if i could go back in time and make the decision all over again, I'd probably still buy this one. If you're on a bit of a budget, go for this baby, you won't regret it.
Just what I said, "great guitar for [a] great price. Alright for one thing this thing has the warmest sound of any guitar I've ever heard in this price range. That's a plus. Another good thing is it has humbuckers, so if you want a different sound you can switch the pickups to a more rock sound very easily (I'd recommend the EMG-HZs). The only bad thing about this guitar is it doesnt have anything to make it stand out. Standard EQ switch and only one volume/tone knob give it that "boring" appeal, but the tone of the guitar gives it an overall 8. If you like this guitar you might also want to look at the Ibanez AXS32 or the Ibanez Artcore AF75 if you like hollow bodies. Yea I'm partial to Ibanez. So sue me.
