This guitar is AMAZING for the money. Sure, the pickups aren't the best and neither are the electronics. The solid bare bones are there though - great neck, no sharp fret ends, nice level even frets that have no buzz anywhere on the fretboard with 5/64" action height, and a comfortable gloss finish. The 14:1 trapezoid tuners are surprisingly tight and turn nicely with no play, but they will wear out over time. Intonation can be almost perfect if you're patient and adjust the bridge posts properly. The gloss finish on this guitar (gloss is only on the yellow, turqoise, and pacific blue - the others have a rustic satin finish) is very good, with no obvious flaws. Is this a high end guitar? No. Is this a great platform for mods with better pickups, tuners, and electronics? Absolutely. I'm 42 years old, I started playing guitar in about 1993. Were there guitars this good back then for under $300 1993 dollars? No way. I wish there would have been.

Product ExperienceI've tried it
Closest StoreEdmonton North, Alberta
I tried this guitar in the store and it was actually pretty good for $140. It felt pretty good to play on, and it was nice a light. Sound wasn't too bad. The sustain of the guitar isn't the greatest but not horrible.. my major complaint would be that it's really noisy. It hums way too loud and it's kinda annoying. I can tell this guitar would also break easily if dropped or anything. Will definitely scratch easily too Overall this guitar is pretty good for what you pay for. It looks cool, and feels right. Pickups are bad
