Good one, if you can take proper care of it.

Alexey N., 26.03.2016
I own this guitar for almost 2 years now, so this review will cover all the things that may not be obvious "out of the box". Let's go!

Pros:
-Very lighweight.
-Comfortable neck (thin, great high fret access, smooth finish).
-It's possible to get great tones from stock pickups. They are not high output, but with "clean boost" they'll sound pretty good.
-Default pickup wiring is also very nice, I use 4 out of 5 pickup selector positions every day to get all kinds of tones. -Even in sigle coil modes pickups don't produce much noise.
-Gorgeous look.
-Includes good case and tools.

Cons:
-Basswood body is easily chipped.
-Stock nut is plastic.
-Even after I swapped nut for Graph Tech one + installed locking tuners, it still can go out of tune quite drastically every few days.
-Frets needs to be polished every string change, otherwise they will tarnish pretty easily.
-Ground wire isn't soldered to the bridge, it just clamped by it, so I had to detach bridge once, when ground wire pulled itself into guitar body. Easy fix, though.
-Finish/fretwork isn't really top-notch out of the box, but good enough.
-Bridge saddle screws need to be tightened every once in a while.
-Hardware finish comes off after a while (to a regular chrome base).

As you can see, this guitar might require some work to it, but I absolutely love to play it. I'd recommend to get one if you're on tight budget and know your way around minor guitar maintenance / upgrades, or looking for a "workhorse": it will be a joy to play. Otherwise, you might be better off to look for something else.

Priceworthy guitar

09.07.2014
Pros: Very light-weight, absolutely beautiful, very good overall feel.


Cons: Soft wood in the neck (can´t hold the tuning more than a day), pick-ups (not my kind of pick-up choise but that´s individual).

But overall it´s a guitar that is very priceworthy for the modest price it´s sold for.
