Sound: Amp sounds okay, if you want real overdrive then get a BOSS DS-1 pedal. The guitar sounds great with a decent amp. Clean on the amp is perfect. Sorta screeches when you turn the overdrive and turn it on above 7 on the volume. Amp probably a hazard to the environment. Feature: It comes with the SP-10 amp about 30$. Obviously the guitar, and a gig bag, picks, DVD, strap, and a stand. 5-way switch is useful Comes with a whammy bar. Doesnt come with the headphones. Amp has treble, bass, and volume. Ease of Use: Easy...........................................yeah Quality: Made great. I got the white on white works awesome Value: Great Value Manufacturer Support: No support needed The Wow Factor: I would pay twice as much for it. End of story. Overall: Completely worth it.

Sound: Surprisingly sounded pretty decent Feature: whammy bar is cool, tha amp is decent, but it didndt come with the stereo headphones that it said it would Ease of Use: The pickups are fine, but it the amp doesnt give you any effects like cho and the distortion is either all the way or none Quality: it's pretty solid Value: only $200 Manufacturer Support: Havnt tried the support yet, though i plan on calling soon to see about the headphones The Wow Factor: I got the White on White one. This thing is pretty damn sexy Overall: It's a really good beginer. The amp isn't great but it works. It's a steal at only $200

Sound: It doesn't play as well a mahogany beacause it's made of agathis, but still has good sound and plays well. Feature: Nothing new, don't use the wammy/tremolo bar to much, it quickly puts the guitar out of tune. Ease of Use: There are complaints how it needs to be fixed so i'm guessing it's not perfect. Quality: Not Great quality but satisfying. Value: It's a good deal. it seems like you got more than promised because of the low price, but you didn't none of the items in the product are perfect as imagined. Manufacturer Support: Guitar Center is the best store that i know of and they helped me out alot because i just bought this guitar but havent used it yet. The Wow Factor: Again with the sexy crap... who cares anyone should be glad they have a guitar... Overall: Here is what I would advise you to think about before buying. This is only opinion. It its important to know that the guitar is made of two different woods and what kinds of wood they are. This will help you find what kind of guitar you want. This guitar consists of an agathis body and a rosewood fret-board. Agathis is believed to exist in the pine family and similar to mahogany. The only difference between mahogany and agathis, is the agathis is said to be the "lazy man's" mahogany meening its cheaper and has less quality. Even though there is that difference, it still plays and sounds great. The fret-board again, is made of rosewood. Rosewood is known for its high velocity sound. It is an average/common guitar wood used for a lot if not most fret-boards on electric guitars. The amp is decent but not an extremely rockin amp. Everything else is okay. This is a good guitar for a beginner or just to practice with. Gigs can be done with this guitar but not common. Most people do gigs with better guitars. This set itself is a great deal and a topselling product at "guitarcenter.com". I hope this has helped you.

Sound: it has a great sound,especially for a begginer guitar.defintly recomend it for begginer player.mine had fret buzz but i adjusted the neck and fixed.also my B string broke after three days bit i put earnie ball super slinky strings. Feature: it has many features.it comes with the strat(i got the black one),a 10-watt amp.i suggest buying another since this one isnt that awsome and it has bad feedback.it also comes with a 10 foot cord,an automic tuner that is ok but if you want a great tuner get a 12-TU tuner for about $70.some pics a dvd that shows you a few basic chords.it also come with a strap but it always comes off.and the package dousnt come with headphones like people say.the box dousnt evan say anything about it. Ease of Use: prety easy to use,i mean its a guitar.it has a 5-way switch,2 tone knobs,1 volume knob,a wammy bar.it comes out of tune kind of easy especialy when use the wammy bar. Quality: seems like it has great quality.i am very careful with my guitars so i dount know if it can take a good beating but it probaly could. Value: this guitar is a great begginer guitar and only $200 Manufacturer Support: dount need any but the picture of the guitars on this website are wrong.i think the ones here are affinity strats. The Wow Factor: im happy i bought this guitar pack.but i suggest an affinity strat more. Overall: great sound,great features,and great price.stop dreaming and start playing allready.

Overall: Nothing but problems with this guitar. Not Zzounds fault. But I would never buy one again. It was strung wrong to begin with, the gig bag smelled so bad -even after hanging it out-doors for two days I still could not bring it into the house. Well what do you expect for $200.00. It has a string rattle that even with proper tuning won't go away.If you would like to talk about this my # 320-217-8781. Dave.
