are you talking of the tone or playability here...& what do you mean by "Last"??? it's a guitar it'll last for as long as you take good care of it....

chances are you will decide to move up to something better as your playing progresses.

I wouldn't put very heavy strings on either as the wood in the neck is not all that great on either.

i would probably wait. i mean, look around - there's a reason people mod those and sell them for a loss. They don't got it.

You're better off saving up and buying something decent - it's cheaper in the long run

sorry, i'm just trying to save you from losing some money. at any rate buy used. the used market is flooded with lo end stuff that people upgrade and then sell to get something better.

at least if you buy used it will save you some money on both ends.

get a mim very nice guitars very easy to modify. but most important play all the guitars you can and find the one that fit's you.
