This rating is based on the price. I think you should be able to get them cheaper than I did. I would recommend this for anyone's first electric.
Model Year: 1995

It's a telecaster style guitar two single coil PU's, three way selector switch, one volume knob, and one tone knob.
Came set-up from the factory perfect for me great action, intonation and a nice neck size.
This is the rating before I changed the PU's. Now I would give it about a four. Not a true classic tele sound, but close and good it's own way.
This thing is built like a tank I have had it for over three years now. I haven't babied this thing at all and have had no problems with it.
