Definetly one id recomend for a beginner, a very good guitar overall but I would get a decent one when you improve
Model Year: 2001
Where Obtained: back alley music
Features:
Made in indonesia 22frets with 6 strings volume control,tone. 2 humbuckers now Idea what pickups they are Decent guitar for a beginner, but you see how mutch beeter guitars are out there for 300 quid extra like an ibanez rg570gn
Playability:
Good action, with smooth frets and nice headstock Nice neck for playing, the nut on mine has been giving me trouble but its not a huge issue.
Sound Quality:
Zoom505II dunlop cry baby wah and I use a laney tf50. Metal is the style i play, I copes very well with distortion and you can get a really good metallica like tone.
Durability:
Not very reliable for stage performing the nut isnt comptent But it does take the knocks

This is a very good guitar, and I must say it is quite powerfull, not suggested for jazz players what so ever.
But since i play punk rock and some metal it is quite right for my tastes.
I highley suggest it for a cheap SG, if you play rock or punk or metal, buy this instead of some Ibanzes GAX 70 or something like that.
To put it quite frank I suggest buying this, just make sure to have a can of presserized air, a suggestion for ever guitar in fact.
Model Year: 2001
Price: $200.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Guitar Center
Features:
Made in China.
Agathis body, maple neck.
21 or 22 frets made out of rosewood. 6 strings.
1 volume, 1 tone, and a p/u selecter switch.
H/H p/u configuration.
Passsive electronics.
Two Epiphone (I guess) humbucker pick-ups.
Just black finish, look's nice.
Double cutaway Sg look. All the frets are easy to get to.
Tune-o-matic bridge.
Non-locking tuner's, feel like my Strat's tuners.
Playability:
Very good in my book. It has a chunky neck, but in a good way, though the neck isn't very thin, so fans of Jackson type necks would be disapointed.
Was a little buzzy when I first got it, so I had to raise the strings a bit, but over-all its pretty nice, or at least I like it.
Sound Quality:
Amazingly after a half a year, and many stylistic changes (from metal to punk to avante to the pshycadelic type stuff I'm now playing) it has held up.
With the right settings on the amp the guitar can have many different sounds, from jangly to murky and metallic to round and full.
Would work well playing punk, metal, jazz, or whatever you play.
Durability:
What I once thought was bad workmanship is now atributted to dust, yes folks dust.
So now my opinion gets changed once again.
to put it quite frank there seems to be nothing wrong whatsoever.

This 1 suited me,very cool looking.Two humbuckers,I was just looking for something to start on.I dont think i would get this guitar again,because I would go and get a epiphone les p for 100 more
Model Year: 2000
Where Obtained: back alley music
Features:
It has a rosewood neck a lovely body and 2 humbuckers for the price of 160 pounds i was stunned,when i first played it at home i was very happy,it has a unique metal sound when on treble,and with my zoom 505 it sound quite professional,I would defenetly recomend this guitar to anyone who is begining out
Playability:
It has a super slide neck which means the frets arent as fat as normal ones,and it is easier to do slides on,but it means u have to push down harder to make those notes clear
Sound Quality:
As I said it has an amazing metal sound for a guitar at this price,I dont know anything about the humbuckers but they do me well.I think the only flaw for me would be the body,it has a very delicate body, I scratched mine when i wiped some dust off. I`ve played on a few more guitars vintage les p,strat and a horner,I would not swap this guitar for any of them
Durability:
I don`t thik I could gig it yet because Im not good enough but the guitar has lots of potentia;.I have had problems with the nut where the lead goes in so i wouldent be too confident on stage.I has a good hold on tuning,i tune mine once a week at the most
