Great piece for the price

23.03.2016
Before writing anything I need to say that this was my first semi-hollow purchase and I was debating myself for months before buying this guitar. With that said, I did not regret doing so and I would buy it again. The build quality is not flawless as the other reviewers pointed it out but after a few tweaks its a very useful piece. I did a lot of research and found a few reviews but I must say that this guitar is a killer for the price. Also checking every now and then I see the price gone up and is frequently out of stock which might indicate that many find this an attractive deal.

Pros:
The frets were nice and smooth, the finish was spotless, and also the tuners hold well. The neck is comfy and feels good (though the high gloss finish can feel sticky after hours of playing). Overall it looks very impressive and it's inspirational to play. It sounds very nice stacked with drives (as you would expect) and sounds warm and nice played through an AC15's clean channel. Also very distinctive and cuts through the mix when playing live with a band along other guitars equipped with humbuckers.

Cons:
The edges of the pickguard are rough and give it a somewhat awful look. The pickup selector is "clicky" and feels cheap but works fine. The guitar needed complete readjustment (action, intonation, etc.). Also the pickups are noname, generic ones which was a bit of disappointment. And one more thing... dump the strings and buy some decent ones. They are cheap and will stretch forever, you simply cannot keep it in tune for even one second.

With all that being said, you can take a look at the price tag and decide for yourself if these pros and cons are realistic or not.

Seriously useful piece of equipment!

04.02.2016
I needed a semi-hollow guitar for fulfilling sounds in the studio, without damaging my wallet too much...
Having seen this, and armed with some skills in altering guitars(I've been throwing screwdrivers and soldering irons at every guitar I've owned for the last 20 years!) I pulled the trigger.

The guitar arrived not entirely flawless, but not enough for me to want to send it back-in consideration of how much it cost, and what I was about to do to it!
There was a minor cracking blemish to a section of the fretbooard binding, a small depression in the top's finish where the bass side bridge post is seated and looking through the bass side f-hole there has been a small cover up job performed on the inerior of the back laminate, with a thin slice of wood-perhaps to cover a knot or other natural flaw.

I had some spare parts taken out off changing parts from other guitars to help me change this one.
Kluson tuners.
Gibson Burstbucker II(for the Bridge)
ESP/Ltd ST203 Humbucker(for the neck)
And I bought..
Brown switch knob
Black-silver top vol/tone knobs

But the most useful change is to re-locate the switch and knobs to their 'correct' places!
Drop the Neck Tone into a new hole, the Neck Vol into the old Neck Tone hole, and the 3way into the old Neck Vol. Finally plugging the original 3way hole with a simple flat dome black plastic plug from a hardware store.
OK, so the look will not be perfect, but a damn sight better than how it arrived and at this money who would care? Naturally this mod works easier on a black finsh than either of the others.

I was lucky to have what would have been otherwise more expensive change outs simply lying around unemployed, but with all this done the guitar has totally opened up and come alive!

Don't forget the construction is of laminate maple, which is fundamentally the same as certain custom shop instruments from well known manufacturers. Simply put these are made in such numbers to allow it coming in at this price point-they're principally not the easiest guitars to construct either!

At the very end this is now a very useable product, capable of outgunning other like guitars of much higher price.

Now let's make some noise!!
