Sound — 7
The guitar is not all that but it's good for some fun with your friends and etc... I'm using a JVC MX-J300, a DigiTech RP-350 and a Zoom G2 and works well on some settings, but it doesn't work very well on distortion or overdrive settings, it's noisy, but it's a very very low noise sound on all 5-way switches, it doesn't have a rich/full/bright sound because it has a passive pick-up. I bought 2 Bridgecraft guitars same day, same year, but different colors, one is Blue and the other one is Green, the Green one is VERY light(weight), never had any problems, expect that the pick-ups got rusty. Now, the Blue one had lot's of buzzes, 4th fret MI 1st string, it's heavier and the Pick-ups didn't get rusty, LOL, I've sent the guitar to my guitar teacher so he can try to repair her,.

Overall Impression — 8
I play mostly all of the styles around, but I really like Rock and the Blues... I've been playing for 6 years now and I own a Epiphone Les Paul 100, a Fender Telecaster, A SKY Flying V and this Bridgecraft guitar... I never wished to ask anything lol... Yeah, I think I'd buy it just for some travel fun, it's cheap you can find it on eBay now as, BC guitars, Glen Burton, Bguitar and Bridgecraft, I like the Glen Burton guitar that looks like a huge machine gun lol...

Reliability & Durability — 6
I don't think so because, I just hit it (not on purpose) and it had a huge hole... The is crappy going to need to change all the guitars structure... The strap buttons are very solid, no I would not depend on it The finish is wearing off already, but I have almost no complainments, because I only paid $40, 00 and it has almost 6 years...

Action, Fit & Finish — 6
I don't remember, but I think it was well set-up, the pick-ups were not well ajusted and the bridge was cheapy. The guitars finish is very fine, but it "chips" off very easily, so careful, as I said the pick-ups were not so, I had to ajust it my self... I opened the guitar up to check the pick-ups brand and model, didn't find no specifications, and I saw the guitars wiring it was so bad, but I still didn't rewire the thing, at least it still works...

I think it was made in 2004/2005 I don't remember, but the guitar did not come what year it was made, doesn't have any customer service, or website. It has 21 frets but the 15 fret + has some buzzes, the neck is thin and has medium jumbo frets, the finish is transparent, it has passive electronics, 1 volume, 1 Tone treble, and 1 Tone bass, with 5-way selector... The pick-ups are VERY VERY cheap as you can see, I keep asking my self How can they make a guitar so cheap that comes from China, I mean, what about the shipping? LOL It came with a CHEAP case a CHEAP cable, a GOOD strap and some GOOD tools.
