Really nice guitar
K-mode, 22.06.2019
Guitar is great, the only thing that was really not pleasant is that neck pickup arrived with two bolts holding it from one side unscrewed fully. Took me some good 20 minutes of fiddling with it. Not sure why it happened, as the guitar itself was packed well and no signs of external damage on it.

Fretwork is really good for a budget guitar. Neck is on thicker side, but is comfortable to play (and I'm mostly used to jackson's slim necks).

String action was not bad from the start, only thing I adjusted was pickup height, the intonation is almost there, I've checked, all the strings on 12 fret sound slightly sharp (+03).

Eventhough the guitar has chambered body, it has a nice weight to it, not too heavy, not super light.

Pickups sound really nice, good on heavy distortion and on crunch, sounds really good on clean. Nice sustain. Really enjoy playing clean on this one. Additionally guitar sound pretty good unplugged, so you can play it acoustically (but of course the sound won't be that load as with hollow body or pure acoustic)

Overall -- great guitar, the only downside was two unscrewed bolts on the pickup :)
