Sound — 6
And seems this guitar handles it just great. Rock sounds cool on bridge pickups, very clean and soft sound. And on the neck pickups funk and jazz sound wonderfool. Sure sound is a bit noisy but not much. Guitar sounds fully good! For this price you get a perfect instrument with a perfect sound.
Overall Impression — 8
I'm playin' jazz, jazz rock, funk, blues and it handles it. I play guitar about 3 years, but theretofore I was only playing acoustic instruments such as Fender acoustic guitar, some russian classic guitar, and Ovation Florencia guitar. It could have better finish and better pickups. But I will replace it so.
Reliability & Durability — 6
I think it can withstand live playin', but the hardware doesn't seem to last forever. Strap buttons is solid so they are very groovy. But I won't use it for a gig. It's cool guitar but it just onlly a beginers or a backup guitar. I didn't like the finish it seems that it will wear off with lots of playin'.
Action, Fit & Finish — 6
Guitar is made very good (as it made in China). Pickups adjusted pretty good. Bridge is little crappy because of the tremolo the tuning doesn't fit long loose tuning pegs.

It was made in Hong Kong. 21 fret guitar with a maple neck and Rosewood fingerboard, body maid from basswood, finished in transparent, body is Stratocaster style. It has quality Die Cast chrome machine heads and 3 single coil pick ups, 5-way selector Switch, 2 x tones, 1 x volume control, Traditional 3-ply white finish scratch plate and a Chrome plated classic Fulcrum tremolo system. It seems to be a Fender Squier Affinity Series Strat copy.
