Great guitar, very playable and very comfortable. The neck and fret size is almost spot on, this would suit most situations. Great for learning, studio or possibly gigging as it seems sturdy enough. If I was to really nitpick its only flaws would be the volume and tone control are a little restricting (only a little) and there were a few small paint flaws around things like screw holes etc. These are only very small concerns and for the price this is a great guitar.

As for the features, this guitar offers a really wide and flexible setup. 3 pickups in H-S-H order combined with a 5-way-switch offer all combinations that i ever felt like i could need. Sound is alright, although i replaced the bridge pickup for the sound i had in mind. But that's just a matter of taste.
The tuners are able to keep tuning quite well even through longer sessions. But that's just as long as the vibrato system doesn't come to use. It really has a devastating effect on the tuning and is the only drawback on this guitar. 24 frets are just the perfect number for me, never realy needed more while i couldn't live with less. The thin neck feels amazing to me, it even makes me feel like it improves my speed a little.
The only thing that ever "broke" was the output jack, but it was just the nut which had loosened a little. It is really easy to tighten again, even without tools. After almost 5 years i still enjoy playing this guitar the same as on the first day. If it ever broke or got stolen i would probably get another one or a similar one with a fixed bridge.
