Perfect for what i play- anything from g 'n' r and funky. I reccomend this baby, specially if you just going onto 5string. Its not a demandiong guitar. Fretboard bit narrow, but otherwise a beaty.

Looks like I could slaughter a buffalo with it and still play gigs. Lucite rather than wood so its light(for an active) buttons a bit dodgy,(bit too small) but I gotta me some straploks. Got a backup anyway, but u cud gig it without one. It holds tuning very well indeed. I use dropped -D for my E string and dropped A for my B string and it stays in tune for countless songs. The finish looks like a thermonuclear blast couldnt shift it.

Action not too good, tends to rattle a lot if you don't have the action way high, but I like that anyways. Gonna get it set up by my teacher for free anyways! No worries with the neck, very smooth, good for long slides like in "Give It Away". Not jerky sounding with slides either. I got it from apro shop, so no worries with foittings either.
