This guitar is awesome, just bought it and it is a superb piece of kit. The finish is great and the range of tones is impressive. The build quality is very good and as good as many more expensive guitars. I own a 1978 Fender Strat and can replicate the sounds I have and more from this. It is equally at home playing all types of music and its slim body is a pleasure to play
