Well i got this for christmas off my folks. i was originally going to buy a squier strat but i'm glad i got this one mainly for the humbucker plus its australian. if it were lost or stolen i would probably look at buying an SG or a Les Paul. my favourite part is the humbucker cause it really bites. least favourite would be the dent in the neck. This guitar rocks and is an awsome first electric guitar. You probably wont be able to get a hold of one unless you are in australia or New Zealand though. Cya's Later
Model Year: 2003
Price: $399.00 Australian $ (new)
Where Obtained: Arties World of Music
Features:
Umm, designed in australia, made in thailand, alder body, maple neck, rosewood fretboard, 22 jumbo stainless stean jumbo frets, 1 volume 2 tone, S/S/H passive pickups, not sure on the brand but they are standard, natural finish, double cutaway like strat, vintage tremelo, non locking tuners
Playability:
The action is super low with no fret buzzing at all. I'm only 14 and this is my first electric guitar so i can only compare it with my friends strat and the neck is alot faster than the strat. the only thing wrong with the neck is the first day i got it my brother dropped it and now theres a dent in the neck behing the 5 fret.
Sound Quality:
I have a 10watt practice amp for playing on my own and i use a PA at my mates place for group performances. I use a Zoom 505II guitar mulit effects pedel that works a treat.i Mainly play rock and roll like ACDC, KISS, Led Zeppelin etc. the humbucker works really well for rock music. it sounds much better than my mates strat mainly because of the humbucker.im considering buying some strap locks, and locking tuners. the only hum comes when using one single coil otherwise no noise at all. I personally think its better on stage but i;ve never used it for recording as i'm only 14.
Durability:
Yere live playing isnt a problem but i havnt had many gigs. I get a full set-up and clean up done about every 6-8 months just to keep it rocking. controls and hardware are all excellent but i did manage to lose the pickup switch knob at a friends place while practicing. Climate changes arn't a problem at all.
