For the $250 I dropped on this guitar used, I couldn't be more pleased. This guitar features two single-coil soap bar pickups with more bite then you'd expect. With a master tone and volume control, you can easily control the guitars sound. There are 22 frets on this beast too. I am extremely satisfied with this guitar and find myself getting perfect zeppelin tone when i roll the guitar volume down to 7, tone to 9, and hook up my pedals. It has a tune-o-matic style bridge piece making it very easy to get the intonation fixed on the guitar. It has a very flat fretboard making it easy to find your way around it. I only give this guitar a 7 in quality because when tightening the input jack, something happened to the wiring inside and had to go get it repaired. This was a very easy fix however with the cords in there being very neatly placed. Besides that minor problem I've had with it, this guitar was very nicely made. For $250 I get a rock and roll machine. I would say stray away from keeping the volume knob on 10 because this acts as more of a gain control until you get to below 2 where the volume dramatically starts to decrease. With the volume on 10, you get an absurd amount of gain and the tone begins to get too muddy. I love this guitar, I have the sea-foam green finish and its a beautiful guitar. the soap bars sound amazing. what value. I love this guitar. She's an unstoppable beast. Though she might not be an American Stratocaster or Les Paul, she also doesn't have the same price tag. Some say you get what you pay for, but I got a lot more then I bargained for. I have friends who all play guitar and all are jealous when I come to my jam session with this machine. i play it through either a vox v15 valvetronix combo or my half stack (marshall 1987xl 50w with a marshall 1960ax cabinet). this guitar sometimes has a hard time cleaning up when rolling back the volume but thats not a problem if you just invest in pedals and turn them off when needing clean. overall, if something happened to it, I'd definitely buy it again.
