I bought this back in October 2014 as I had sold my previous electric guitar some months before and needed a cheap Strat copy to play around the flat, and I still play it regularly today despite never having modified or upgraded it besides installing a white scratchplate.
At the time I nearly went for a much more expensive Squier or Vintage brand guitar instead, but settled on this and have zero regrets. The lacquered finish on the neck is utterly luxurious, the pickups sound great, and it feels just like it should, although the C-shaped neck profile felt a bit chunky at first compared to my previous Fender Strat, which had been closer to a V in shape. It was set up perfectly out of the box(unheard of for me, as I'm extremely fussy about the setup of my guitars and previously had come to expect all brand new guitars to play like dogs -not so with this one!)! As with all the Wilkinson pickups I've tried the quality is superb- not perfect, but good enough that I'd need to spend a lot of money to replace them with anything better.
So now for the negative thing. Left in a corner of my flat that had a little bit of direct sunlight for just a couple of weeks, I got back from a holiday to find the laquer on the body had turned a sour, milky colour around the edges, which was a little disappointing at the time, but honestly, for what I paid for this guitar I really cannot complain!
Me and my band mates were really impressed with this guitar.
The feel of this guitar is very good and does not come far form my other (more expensive); Bright and responsive pickups, the neck is fast and the frets were good out of the bag. The setup was done very good and had no problems with it, and simple tuning did the trick . Intonation was alright and no fret buzz, tremolo bridge is not very reliable (its the only downsize i found until now).
I am very happy with this guitar, already made some concerts with her and also recorded some tracks and both in appearance, feel and sound you would not differ this from other most expensive guitars in the market, it is the real bang for the buck
