one day i will have a better guitar BUT... i will never sell this one and i will awalys use this one cuz the ease of use and the fact of the matter is that this guitar is just plain a damn good souning and looking guitar, i recomend that if your considering this guitar GET IT!!!!! you wont be dissipointed, espically for "the new guys" of music creation!!!

I like the sound of this guitar rocemend getting medium blues strings for a good over all sound between classic rock, metal, or even just every day nice guy playing :P

where i got it from came with a bunch of accesories, but iv done business with this company and there very good recomend getting products from them!!!!

Ease of Use
well considering i played a bass for 5 years then quit for 4 years, and now sttarted playing a guitar... iv advanced on this VERY easly, and in only 2 months of playing it iv gotten esceptionally better recomend this one for beginners very good starter guitar!!!

Mine has a good body and the neck is easy to manuver on the bridges sound great clean and crisp unless distorted then you get that ripping sound that all hard rockers want!!! only down set i had was the tone knob came loos esy fix though just a tighten and it was done, do recomend new strings with it though, but outta professeion with my past basses almost any new guitar needs strings right away cuz read more we all have our own brand that sound good to US... oh and one more thought on that i love the paint job verty nice!!!!

i got mine on sale AT THE TIME!!!!! 150 dollars off of the dealer price of 299 yea dealer markup for ya! lol but yes for the price even if i did pay the 299 it would have been worth it all the way!!!!!
