Sound — 8
The sound is pretty good for the guitar price, the strings that come with it aren't the best but it sounds nice with Ernie Ball Super Slinky strings. It has a lot of sounds because you can alter the tone. It also helps you create the Vintage sounds of the 70's.

Overall Impression — 8
Overall this guitar is a good guitar, I have played mostly rock music but it also sounds and looks good with jazz and blues. If it were stolen I would definatly buy this guitar again.

Reliability & Durability — 8
I have had it 3 months and it has taken quite a beating. Mine has one small scratch now but it has been dropped a few times.

Action, Fit & Finish — 7
The paint on the guitar was alright, it had a few thick sections. Besides that it has a nice finish. The pickups were in line and the controls were nice and tight.

Features — 8
It is a 24 fret guitar and the neck is made of maple and the body is basswood. It has a glossy finish to it and there is polished chrome on the details. There are two volume controls and 2 tone controls one for either pickups.

    Advanced players will never buy such a guitar, for obvious reasons. First of all, because an advanced player will test the guitar before buying it. And such a testing begins (literally) by knocking on its wood and listening to it. A hollowbody made in basswood is a guitar made in the wrong wood, so it can't deliver the right accoustical sound. That's the ending point of a test for an advanced player. And yes, that's exactly what I've meant: only beginners could appreciate this axe, because they aren't aware it's not an axe, it's just something that looks like one. But I never meant to say that a real review, of any guitar on Earth, would be irrelevant. The review above is bad and irrelevant because it is written by somebody who knows very little about guitars. Someone who says "It has a lot of sounds because you can alter the tone" doesn't even know what the volume and tone pots are doing there.

    No, we can't, because - since we've bought this crap - we are a hopeless amateur, thrilled to have a guitar for the first time, no matter how bad it sounds, no matter how impossible the action is, no matter how many flows has the wood in it... And yet we write 'reviews'!

    i have been playing guitar for more than 20yrs and i bought one of these a few months ago and it is really just a beginners guitar but it is well put together. i have fitted some Seymour Duncans and some new super slinkys some better pots and it has transformed the guitar and it plays just as good as some of the more exspencive guitars i have and i have a few after 20yrs.if you want a great guitar go out and spend at least 800-1000 but dont forget not every one can do that. what about the less well off who have saved up for a long time and its all they can afford is whats on offer and this is not a bad guitar to start off on. also we have all started off at some time with a cheep guitar. my first guitar 20+yrs ago was a cheep and chearfull it did not even have a name on the headstock. but when you think a guitar is cheep and nasty you should of tryed them 20 yrs ago so come on guys the cheep guitars now are 100 times better than when i was young so give it a brake it is what it is and in time you can add better gear to it and it will make it a better guitar so sorry but i give this guitar a big thumbs up all together it has cost me 275 and that includes the guitar.
