Excellent value-for-money

I bought this guitar to get a feel for seven-string guitars and my first impression has been very positive. Considering the price I didn't expect too much but I don't like to waste my money on garbage either so I did have certain expectations on assembly and tuning stability. Now that the guitar has arrived I am happy to discover that it exceeds my expectations. Intonation and tuning stability is good. The neck-joint is flawless and string height is very good. The neck was comfortable and overall it feels like an easy-to-play instrument. There were som minor cosmetic imperfections on the paint job. The pickups aren't excellent but work well. I consider this guitar excellent value-for-money.

Best £100 I have ever spent on a guitar.

You cannot find a better quality guitar for £100, let alone a 7 string. The pickups are very good. The knobs have a nice resistance so they cant accidentally turn down while your playing. There is barely any static coming off the guitar when the volumes up and it isn't being played. The fret board is very nice. The best feature I would say is how easy it is to pinch harmonic practically every note. The only thing I think would of made this guitar better is to of put in a bridge with a whammy bar in. But saying this I literally could not care any less. THIS AXE IS FROM ZEUS HIMSELF. YOU WILL NOT BE DISSAPOINTED LIKE ME :) ! ( I play metal genre... )

Cheap, yet surprisingly good sound.

I bought this guitar thinking that I would use it mainly to try out 7 string and also to have a cheap guitar always available in our rehearsal studio (that I did not really care if it got broken due to temperature changes).

I picked up the guitar and brought it home to my home studio before bringing it to the rehearsal studio, and of course I felt the need to unpack it and to at least try it out!

Instantly I fell in love with the feel of the guitar acoustics and felt that I had to try it out with an amp.
So I connected it to my computer and just listened to the clean sound from the microphones, and I thought that for the price of the guitar it actually delivered a fairly good and acceptable sound.

I then started up Guitar Rig 5 and tried out some different amp's, distortions and other effects and once again I was surprised at what I heard.

For the price of the guitar and how it delivers, it is absolutely something that I would recommend for beginners and also for professionals looking for a guitar to use in a studio or equal.

How it handles on the road I cannot express myself about, but I can imagine that it will do pretty much alright.

So, as a conclusion.
Definitely a price worthy guitar that delivers a fairly good sound for the money spent.

Good work!

Extremely good for any enthusiast

Expecting low quality product, judging by the price, I WAS SHOCKED!

This thing is heavy as a wide load, solid as a rock and made with one purpose - to fall in love!

Nice, thick body with great contours and surprisingly - PERFECT finish. No flaws with laquer job.

Solid neck, thick enough for transfering great sound overall, thin enough to get your arm around for any chord you wish. It is one piece, but it has great lines that make me confident it won't bend over time in a bad direction.

After seeing that the woodwork and the "outside" job was done greatly I expected to find electronics bad. I was wrong, the switch is solid, doesn't make noise and the pickups are really defining their positions. Even though they are not the best, they do their job properly.
Volume and tone pot are acessible and turn without much effort, feels just right!

Pros: Cheap 7 string with excellent woodwork, great neck feel

Con: Nut is a bit weirdly made, kinda wide slots for thin strings. Makes it go off tune after some hard play or a few days sitting.
