It suit's my style witch is like metal to jimi hendrix style stuff and it sound's ok. It dosent sound too great on my 10watt Aria pratice amp but thats what I have to Live with lol. Distroted if it's up lol enought you can get a pretty good tone. It suffers a bit when clean so I recommend playing clean on the bridge and middle selection. Distorted I leave on bridge. If you own a better amp like a (for example) Vox, Marshall or Roland cube (these are the other amps I have play it on ) it sounds nice on any setting but these are expensive amps so anthing sound good. It's nice enought distorted but it struggles on clean.

I play metal Live and stuff. I have only been play a year-ish but I no my stuff. If it was stolen I wouldent rebuy cus I have just order my secound guitar witch is an ESP LTD M-100FM I shall write a review in the new year. I forgot to mention that I got a 10watt Aria practice amp with it and thats not that awesome tbh.

I honestly would play this live if I had a choice but I'm with it til christmas so... i wouldent depend on it. it's more of a pratice guitar the finish is solid but the fret board get really dirty over time and it shows up but thats going to happen so live with it.

It is a bolt on neck and it is all very well curved this could of just been me but I had a problem with the G tuning peg and I did fix it but it was frustrating to tune the guitar then 10mins later the G has gone out of tune also all the pegs are not tightend fair some feel too tight and other are loose it can be fixed but it's carelessly made to be honest. These are pretty big flaws.

this guitar is a good for a starter and it can be brought in a good pack. The pack I brought included gigbag, strap, picks, allen wrenchs (although I never found out why) and a 'the cable guys' jack. anyway it has flaws like it is sorta heavy like for example it's like near the same weight as an Ibanez grg170(I think thats what it was). It has three single coils like most strats, 22frets, volume and 2 tone. I don't no too much about the pick ups all I know is that there single coils.
