Features: This is a great beginner guitar although the pickups are terrible. It was made in China and it has one P-90 pickup, and a set neck. This guitar has a very pretty Vintage sunburst finish. // 6

Sound: I play everything that you can think of and this guitar plays everything well in my opinion. I use this guitar through a Line 6 Spider II 75 watt amp, and it is extremely quiet. Also it has a very warm deep sound and is absolutely superb when you use distortion. This guitar has very little variety I sound for it has one pickup and one tone knob. But for the price I believe that you can't find a better sounding guitar. // 10

Action, Fit & Finish: The guitar was set up very well except for 2 distinct flaws, the tuners are the worst that I have ever seen and the bridge often gets in the way of your arm when playing sitting down. // 8

Reliability & Durability: This guitar feels very sturdy and even with relentless playing I am sure that it would last for a very long time. Everything about this guitar feels very solid except for the tuners, which I replaced and you should too. // 10

Overall Impression: This is a great guitar for any rock player which loves solos and great sounding distortion. I have been playing guitar for a couple years and this is one of the best sounding guitars I have ever played. This guitar is perfect in that it is so simple and reliable, truly supporting the statement less is more. // 8
