Sound — 9
The sound is really FANTASTIC... For the price. I play jazz to metal and this guitar does it all. Distortion sounds really nice but death metal makes it a bit noisy which is not very audible. It can play clean beautifully and the bridge pickup. Proves dat it is one axe. When it comes to using the tremolo the guitar stays in tune pretty well. But if you use it too much the low e string starts going out of tune.

Overall Impression — 10
I've been playing guitar for almost 5 yrs and I can tell dis is a good guitar for all the beginners. If it were stolen I'll probably buy another 1. If compared to other guitars in the same price range. It is really good. you CAN TRUST THIS GUITAR.

Reliability & Durability — 10
This guitar can really be reliable. The strap buttons are nice but I still advice to take a strap lock. It can withstand live playing and the colour and finish looks porshe. Not at all cheap.

Action, Fit & Finish — 9
Mine came a good action, it was ready to play with no defects, the finish was nice. The pickups worked and are still working pretty well.

Features — 9
Mine was made in 2010 in china. It gas 22 frets like a normal Strat. It is made of basswood, has a maple neck, rosewood fretboard. It has passive electronics. 2 single coil and 1 humbucker, with 1 volume and 1 tone knob and a 5 way selector. It has a Vintage style vibrato tremolo which stays in tune most of the time.

    please recommend pickups that r compatible with this guitar. i just fried my humbucker pickup by messing with its magnets so i need a new pickup. preferably an active and covered pickup
