I chose this one based on looks and playability. The looks got me and the overall playability sold me on it. I love the lighwieght feel of the guitar. I love the heaviness of a Standard or Studio as well but a nice lightweight Les Paul cant be beat either.

Beautiful guitar! Ive never had a problem with the features. Depending on what style of music you are playing you might want to switch out the bridge pup with something hotter like a Dimarzio p-90 Superdistortion.
The action is great! I cannot complain about this at all. The neck is so easy to play on and it's rounded design gives it good grip.
I play mine through a Marshall and I can get just about any sound I want out of it. Nice tone but Im switching out the volume pots with 500k pots to get a little more bite out of it.
Nothing beats the reliabilty of a Gisbon.
Overall this guitar is pretty good. the playability is great. Just some nit-picking about pickups and switch. I caught a deal on the price because Mars was going out of business, so I think it's agreat value at $550.

It's features are good, but the switch is always unscrewing itself from the body. Otherwise everything works well and I'm pleased.
Well, I haven't had to mess with the action at all. the neck is awesome I love the rounded shape. I find it to be the easiest to play on. Very easy to play.
At times it can sound great, but the pickups cut out if the bass is too loud, making the higher notes inaudible.
When I play, the side side of my hand is right over the neck pickup, so when I deaden the strings, the strings hit the pickup, making this popping sound. The pickup height seems to always be adjusting itself, too.
Haven't had a problem with durability, other than the switch unscrewing itself. Pretty solid guitar.
