I bought this in 2007, and it's now 2017, so with the benefit of ten years' experience: dead impressed with this guitar! No complaints at all given the price.
This was the first electric I bought, and I wanted something with a decent neck, humbuckers, and a fixed bridge; this fit the bill. It's got a nice clean sound, especially on the neck pickup with a bit of tremolo.
The build quality and finish on my example were excellent; the grain on mine is a lot more subdued than the one in the photos (even after ten years of aging). The setup out of the box was also good, although I now use a heavier set of strings than the stock ones.
