Over all, i'd say this is a great guitar for a beginner/intermediate player like myself. Comes highly recommended.
Model Year: 2001
Price: $219.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Chain store
Body is black with white pick guard. Standard six string. Two tone controls, one volume. Three pickups. String through body style.
I haven't has it that long, but i notice that it seems to play for me. Very smooth playing for the low price.
I am using just a little practice amp at the moment, but seems to work for my needs. Plays very crisp and clean but plays the crunchy distorted riffs very smoothly.
Haven't had it long enough to comment on durability.
