No Fender quack or jangle. It sounds real good through Marshall's turns out to be a cool guitar for playing leads. The underwound single coil I can get some great surf sounds and some okay light grind blues tone. Kinda lacking on clean tones and rythmn except if you playing some surf stuff. Middle pick up position is useless Fender screwed up here they should of split humbucker for usable rythmnn tone.

Overall Impression — 10
Very comfie to play for lead and rhythm. Good lead tones, surf tones and stays in tune good even with vibrato use. For the money excellent and it can take a good beating to.

Reliability & Durability — 10

Action, Fit & Finish — 8
Good paint some noise but resoldiered everything and brought it to a tech for set up. Wangie bar is kinda hard to put on but it getting a little easier with age. Intonation was off.

Weak single coil and pretty good humbucker with Vintage type vibrato on Mustang body aith 24.75 neck. No single coil splitting on 2 conductor wire humbucker.
