This is the first guitar I ever owned so I really have nothing to gauge it with. the only problem with this giutar is the selector for the swicth that makes the guitar sound acoustic not the 3 nobes but the swicth has a short in it in certain positions.

My first electric guitar, considering i bought sight unseen it's not bad, but if it were stolen i'd upgrade
Price: $170.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Music123
Features:
Maple neck, rosewood fretboard w/ 24 frets. 1 volume and 1 tone control. Strat style body, and strat style bridge. S/S/H electronics
Playability:
I can get really low action, neck is great, no major flaws. I can do dive bombs and it actually stays in tune
Sound Quality:
This thing is stock and is great at high gain settings, but the clean sound isn't very good(givin my amp is better for distortion and the like)
Durability:
The jack is terrible it cant lock on to the cable and i tried to adjust it but it(the nut) was like welded or something so i just bent it instead. And the tone knob falls off not easily but you can just pull it right off, strap locks are good

Where Obtained: a friend
Features:
Neck/Fretboard:Maple/Maple Body:?(Maple maybe) 21 frets/6 string 3 knobs:1 volume 2 tone Pickups:s/s/s passive electronics Sunburst finish Double cutaway Whammy bar(fender strat type bridge) non-locking tuners
Sound Quality:
I used a little Fender Frontman and a Digitech RP100. this guitar works really well for blues and actually has a pretty fat tone for a single coil guitar(the body is really heavy, almost like a LP). i used to play a lot of creed and Project 86 stuff on it and it sounded great. it has a very clear snappy tone that is as i said b4 pretty full for a single coil guitar. the sound rocks. im considering replacing the neck with one that has a rosewood fretboard and getting a Duncan Scorcher for Strats put into the bridge position. no, its actually really quiet considering i dropped it the way i did. right now its probably a better stage guitar becasue when you put it into the postion u like it in when you have the strap on, it stays put cuz of the body weight.
Durability:
Right now, not good cuz the electronics are original and the thing is older then i am :D. not often at all, in fact the only adjustments i ever needed to make were when i started laying with string gauges. yes everything is holding up great. like i said everything except the tuning machines are original so its holding up very well climate changes dont really affect it except the tuning may fall out a little
