I had one and sold it and I wish I hadn't. Personally, I liked it, but I was juggling the guitar inventory and something had to go. Sounded great, kind of vintag-y pick ups. Comfortable neck that is fairly narrow.

There are some different styles of the Speedster. The models with the bizarre pickguard thing for the pots & jack I did not particularly like. Mine was plain (plus racing stripe!) with the pots & jack mounted through the body wood.

I really regret parting with it now, but I simply couldn't make my eyes believe that "Speedster Red" was not, in fact, pink.

i have a speedster one, its the same but with a single pickup on the bridge. they're great guitars for the price i love the wraparound bridge and the korina body sounds just like mahogany but much lighter, the tuners are solid and reliable but you may want to upgrade them at some point. overall they're great guitars and an extra pickup will probably improve it. its a little limited in sounds with one

EDIT: i have a review of the speedstar one on UG look it up
