Overall Rating:
This guitar is overall good but best suited for a beginner guitar player. It wouldn't be recommended for live or studio work but just as a practice guitar. It could be better in several ways but you'd be better off with a squier if your a beginner.
Price: $98.00
Where Obtained: Pawn Shop
Features:
This guitar is made in indonesia. It has a maple neck. It has 22 medium-jumbo frets. It has 1 volume and two tones and a 5-way pickup selector. Exactly like a strat does. It has 3 pickups(s,s,s). The body style is a double cutaway.
Playability:
You can get the action low on this guitar but it tends to buzz around the 7th and 8th frets if taken too low. The neck is very good on it. It is perfect size and nice and flat. It plays ok compared to other guitars. It has some flaws in the fret dressing and nut job. B
Sound Quality:
I play this through a 85 watt solid state and it sounds good. It sounds excellent clean too. It sounds full and warm. It sounds just like a strat with the stock pickups in it. It can be a little noisy and hum.
Durability:
It can be used live but not recommended. The intonation needs to redone about once a month. The hardware is and controls are holding up well. The body is not that solid though. I dropped a tool on it and it made a reasonably sized dent in it. The wood is not good at all on it. But it does resonate very well.
