Good guitar, especially for a beginner to intermediate player. If you pay the list price ($199), your're probably paying too much. I got mine in a package deal with an amp on a drum-set trade-in. I'm very satisfied with my Austin. As I become a more experienced and serious player, I will probably consider upgrading.

Great action-easy to play.
Sounds pretty good, although I get some occassional buzzing. (Could be me!). It provides a good sound for home use. I get some very good sounds using it with a Digitech RP-200 multi-effects units.
