This guitar suits my music style well (classic rock to modern rock and anythign in between) I use a Peavey 30 watt amp and a MD-2 Dist. pedal. This guitar only gets really noisy on the bridge pickup. The variety of this guitar is not as good as an average guitar, but I did only pay 50 dollars for it, so I'm not complaining, a guitar is a guitar when you are starting out.
Overall Impression — 8
I play just about anything that I can get my hands on so I would have to say classic rock. This guitar I bought only to get the amp, and it is currently a display model hanging up to show off. If this was stolen or lost, or broken I would not consider getting a new one. I would save my money up for something more useful. But if you are looking to try guitar out, and give up easily, and you don't want to spend a lot of money, this package would be the one that you should want to get.
Reliability & Durability — 6
This guitar already has few chips in the paint, I'm dissapointed, because the finish chips right off and breaks in pieces, it doesnt take chunks, it cracks it good. I think that eventualy it will wear down becasue of the price I paid for it, but it has held up for the past 6 months pretty well.
Action, Fit & Finish — 8
The guitar was very well set-up at the factory, I barely even had to tune it when I got it outta the box. The guitar did not contain any flaws that I can catch.

This 21 fret Strat style guitar has a rosewood neck. It has an ordinary medium glossy black finish. The bridge is Tele-style and it comes with the knob set up of your ordinary Stratocaster (5 way-sel., volume, 2 tones etc). It has a humbucker pickup for the bridge, and two regular strat-style pickups for the mid and the neck. This guitar is a decently looking guitar. It came complete with a 10 watt practice amp, strings, chord, guitar book and all the Starter Kit goodies.
