Very great guitar for a beginner and great for playing your first gigs and great for getting chicks!!! WOW
Model Year: 1992
Price: $175.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Maggios Music
Features:
The whole guitar is great, except for the pickups on the highs but that can be arrange by a EQ. the tremolo is a non-lockin but it tunes fine
Playability:
The neck is fast, you can set the action very low and get a even faster neck. the only thing that bothers me is the 22 fret because when you play faster music you can hurt yourself so be careful
Sound Quality:
The tone is also great like i said the EQ is mainly need it. with a great Eq pedal you can get the best of the guitar.
Durability:
Its pretty durable, ive droped a few times and the sound is the same.

A very nice starter guitar - much better than average. Definitely better than the Squier guitars in this price range. It could use better pick-ups, but otherwise it's a fine instrument.
Model Year: 2000
Price: $129.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Musicians Friend
Playability:
Action is a little low, but not bad and the slightly narrower neck suits me fine. It's a little on the heavy side, but I like the feel and it sounds so much better than the average guitar in this price range.
Sound Quality:
Very good sound. I plugged into a Marshall practice amp and the bass and midrange are great, but highs are a little weak. Good range on the sound not too bright in the highs and not overly moody or dark in the lows. Exccellent for a variety of styles. But I definitely still plan on upgrading the pick-ups.
Durability:
Pretty solidly built with a beautiful finish. It should hold up fairly well for the intermediate player and some pretty solid playing. The only issue I had was that the jack was not tightened down, but that was obviously fixed in a heartbeat. The cable that was supplied with the guitar was a piece of trash. I plugged into the amp and nothing. When I switched cables the guitar sounded great. Checked the Washburn cable and the wires didn't reach the plug!
