well, the lotus is a starter guitar.
I don't think it's a particularly amazing starter guitar, but as a starter guitar, you shouldn't really be expecting quality.
I would be cautious, the both of you, about buying cheap guitars by offbrand companies like that, lest you end up with so much "low-end" gear.

I say go for it tbh. It says the High end models run now for $100-$300 so I'd say you could get a pretty solid guiar out of that

I have the slammer strat rip off and it isnt that bad. A bit above the Squires I played, but below the MIM/MIJ fenders. Not sure how close the Explorer and Strat's qualities are since my parents bought mine new 11 years ago for $150.
