This is my first guitar, it was a present and came with a noname amplifier. I might in the future try changing the electrics. It's a very easy guitar to play and you don't grow out of it easily. I've had it for 6 years and only now am I thinking of getting another one.

Strat style guitar. Three single coil pickups, 5 way selsctor, standard tremelo bridge, 21 frets, one volume and two tone controls.
The factory set up was good enough for me. It was easy to learn to play on and now I still play it as it is a very nice guitar.
I play a variety of styles through a Peavy Studio Pro 65W with a variety of effects and can always seem to get the sound I'm looking for. It has a lovely clean tone and sounds good with different types of distortion.
It makes an anoying buzzing sound when the pickup selector is in the middle and the volume control is best lest untouched as it makes alot of noise and is hardly usefull for contoling the volume.
I would think twice before taking this thing on stage.
When it was new I had no problem for about 4 years.
I chose this guitar because it was just a great beginners guitar.
No, I would consider buying a Premier.
This guitar could have better sound quality.
The best aspect is playability, and worst is sound.
That's about it.

the sound is warm. (very).
the sound is avg compared to other guitars.
its noisy all the time.
In a way.
all the time.
I looked at a lot of moderate priced guitars, ranging from $349-$599...and came up with this one because of its stage look ( the first thing I noticed before I took a closer look ) I liked the crisp tone and the playability of the neck. Fit me quite well...for the price. For a good guitar without the "arm & leg" price, this would be a conciderable choice.

This guitar sports 6 strings and a 22 fret neckboard,3 tone sunburst finish, double cutaway with 2 control knobs, chrome tuners, bridge and cord output. Good quality all around.
I like the ease of the fingering on this model. It however, hasnt got enough frets to satisfy me...I personally prefer a 24 fret neck, as to get my screaming highs in. The neck style ni itself otherwise has great response.
I use this guitar with a Fender ULTIMATE CHORUS twin amp with a GT-3 guitar effects processor. Along with this setup, I have been able to reach any sound goals I may have...Sounds are mind boggling
As far as I can tell, This guitar is VERY durable to all the pressure I put it through over the last 4 years. I have never had to make adjustments to the truss rod or tuners or bridge or anything. Everything is holding up very well. I have played several live performances with it, in very high humidity as well as bone chilling cold endurances. The guitar handles all this much better than I do.
