Baffling quality for the fraction of the cost

09.12.2016
I bought this guitar almost on a whim: saw a couple of very favorable reviews, etc, needed a strat for recording purposes, finally got this, was very low on funds. I have been playing guitar for over 10 years as a band member, as a session player, etc, had my fair share of expensive stuff, at this time just happened to need a strat relatively quickly, and only had a tele and a les paul, which didn't fit the job. Was I surprised.. First of all, the guitar was in tune right out the box (albeit the slightly sharp high E string). The finish looks great, way better than on the photos. The guitar itself is pretty light, just about right for a strat. The neck is, well, not too slim, but not too fat as well, feels like a MIM Fender strat neck, almost identical. Freatboard finish is spectacular, no blemishes, high polish and all. Now the good stuff. I was worried about bad frets/warped neck/electronics/tremolo. None of these things are bad in any way. All it needs is a proper set up (And what I mean by that is , obviously everyone likes a certain set up for a guitar, so it can't be perfect for everyone, I like a floating bridge, a two spring setup, angled claw and so on), after that, it plays like a dream. The pickpus are nice, jangly, just as a strat should be. You'd have to be insane to complain about this guitar, would recommend to anyone looking for a decent strat. Only thing that it needs is a setup according to personal specifications, after that, it's a spectacular piece of equipment. (P.S - When set up right, ya can dive bomb it for a half an hour and it doesn't go out of tune, I was quite pleasantly surprised).

UPDATE:
Okay, it has SOME issues, of which ALL are fixable without much hassle. The issues that mine has are - some frets aren't fully set into the fretboard, which makes them stick out just that much, AND makes some strings at two or three positions buzz. While this is a very low maintenance job, it's still a little annoying, as everything else works perfectly (well, change the string trees, unless You never bend. then again, every strat with non-roller string trees has this problem.) and this seems as such a silly thing to miss. I've carefully set the frets fully into the neck, and now it plays great, but just a word of warning - when buying this, I mean, even with these issues, it's still a complete steal! Sounds great, the tremolo works fine, the finish is fantastic, the neck is comfortable and smooth, even the electronics are absolutely fine.

I am reviewing the guitar after having owned it for more than 1 year. I initially purchased the guitar as I wanted a strat with single coils. I wanted to experiment a little bit with the sound as all of my other guitars had humbuckers.

When I received the guitar, I was immediately impressed with its finish. For a 100 Euro guitar, the finish is amazing and after having owned the guitar for more than 1 year, I have no complaints about its look.

The pickguard looked nice at first but after months of playing, I found out that it is covered with some sort of plastic. I play with my pinky finger on the pickguard for stability - this area is now quite rough and does not look great.

The fretboard felt a little bit wide at first at first as most of my guitars were shredder guitars, but I got used to it after some time. Pickups sound great and I have no complaints.

Overall it's a great guitar for 100 Euro, I would have expected to have issues with it but I didn't. For the price that I paid for, I can say that I got a real decent guitar with no issues except for some minor cosmetic flaws.
