Sound — 1
Metal style, I play punk although it doesn't suit it very well. Has a nice crunch and loud bass although not very versatile. Not really noisy, I was using it with a no-brand 30 watt amp. It can barely play metal and that's it.
Overall Impression — 1
I play punk and this sucks for it and it's very hard to palm mute. I've been playing for a year and own a Squier by Fender Deryck Whibley Telecaster which is a BIG improvement. I asked alot of questions with little answers (even online). If it were stolen or lost I'd save up for Epiphone or Squier both of which would be a gigantic improvement.
I hate everything about it other than it being easy to access from the back so it's very adjustable although I don't think better pickups would make this sound any better. I compared it to Epiphones, Squiers, Gibsons and Fenders after I bought this from the pawn shop. I didn't really have a choice as this was the only guitar they had. I sold it for 50$ to someone else. I wish I had more info on this and a better body, better finish, better neck and fretboard and better pickups so basically a new guitar. If this was lost or stolen I wouldn't care and I would definitely replace it with ANYTHING else, the amp it came with was terrible. The only thing worthwhile about spending your money on this was the 2 $30 dollar cables and the 50$ gig bag so basically you get 10$ more than what you pay for although it's still a pretty bad buy.
Reliability & Durability — 1
1 Gig then strings replaced twice. Lasts 10 years tops. Strap buttons tend to slip alot. The finish was full of cracks and easily wears off alot.
Action, Fit & Finish — 1
Guitar setup was ok the pickups had to be tweaked, the fret wire was quite poor and were a bit rusty.
