John Lewis: Electronic Guitar Toy

Price paid: £ 400

Purchased from: eBay

Sound — 10
It suits my music style perfectly. I mainly play progressive metal and the ABS body gives it the real crunchy tone I've been looking for.

I use it with a Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier which contemplates it beautifully.

Overall Impression — 4
If it were stolen I wouldn't buy it again. I feel that for some reason I'm just not getting the right sounds out of this guitar. Maybe it's my skill level but I have solely been playing this guitar for 5 years.

Reliability & Durability — 10
I've played it live on many occasions and it has withheld.

Action, Fit & Finish — 3
I felt the unique design made it quite hard to achieve pinch harmonics, however the colour coded strings really helps learning new riffs.

I've also never noticed it going out of tune which is impressive for non-locking yellow plastic tuners!

Features — 1
Made in: China
Year: Unknown
Frets: 4
Neck: Jumbo
Body Style: Strat

I really was expecting a few more features but the amount of frets didn't limit me at all.

    I don't know why you guys are laughing :-( I've since upgraded and can now play DragonForce:
