Davison: F9880
Its definitely a rock guitar, no doubt about it. But its clean sound is also really nice. This guitar is so cheap, and it plays like an expensive guitar.

Features: This guitar is a 22 fretted Davison Les Paul (vintage brown sunburst). The neck is a bolt-on. The finish on this guitar is just awesome. It has a 3-way pickup selector (treble, bridge and rhythm). There are 4 knobs, (2 volume and 2 tone), I like the knobs alot. They look expensive and feel good. The neck and is maple, The body is alder, and a rosewood finger board. The pickups are humbuckers, there are diecast tuners and the bridge is a stop tailpiece. // 9

Sound: Its definitely a rock guitar, no doubt about it. But its clean sound is also really nice. I play on an inexpensive TranZamp amplifier and I don't use any additional effects except for distortion. Each setting, treble, bridge, and rhythm all sound good and distinctive. Sounds awesome for such an inexpensive guitar. // 9

Action, Fit & Finish: The guitar finish is amazing. It will really catch your eye. Everything on the guitar came pretty solid. There is a very slight fret buzz, but that can be fixed easily, I'm not even concerned about that because its not a big deal. Everyone complains about the pickups on this guitar but they are not bad at all. The only flaw on the guitar is that one of the fret markers on the 21st fret is out of line with the other marks. Its not that big of a deal, because its not the fret inlay, its the mark on the side of the neck. // 9

Reliability & Durability: It feels really solid, its got some weight to it. I just got the guitar today, but I will definitely play a show with it. Strap buttons seem good so far! // 10

Overall Impression: Couldn't be happier. This guitar is so cheap, and it plays like an expensive guitar. I was a little skeptical on the price, but the company offers a 14-day money back guarantee. But I'm not sending this back, its a keeper. I'll probably switch out the pickups in like 6 months or so, I don't have a problem with them. I would buy it again if something happened. Great guitar. // 9
