Overall great guitar, pickups sound awesome, finish is the most lacking feature of the guitar, solid feeling hardware though, and neck is pretty good.

Its a awesome basic guitar tone wise. One volume, one tone, and a 3 way switch. Gets the job done well. Pickups sound great, nice and clean when you want it and they break up nicely of thats what you want too. Plenty of output.

Features on this guitar are real basic. Tone and volume, 3 way switch. Bridge is nice and feels solid to me. Tuners seem to be able to hold tune no problem whatsoever.

Ease of Use
Out of the box i was not impressed by the setup, the bridge was down as low as possible. The action was pretty high, litle tough to play. Nut wasnt cut deep enough. That being said, once i lowered the nut a bit, and tightened the truss rod about a 6th of a turn, guitar was loads better.

Guitar seems to be mechanically sound, solid bridge and tuners. Electronics sound great, and the pots feel nice and solid. Neck seems to be well built, frets are level ect. The only issue i see is with the angle of the neck to the body, id like to get the action lower but cant get it any further down. The bridge is completely bottomed out and was when it arrived.

IMHO i think there are epiphones that are the same price of basically the same quality. That being said, read more it is completely worth the price you pay for it. I mean come on, a USA made gibson for $600. Cant top that.

Manufacturer Support
Havent had to deal with them, but in sure its fine.

The Wow Factor
Again a little lacking here. The finish is not impressive. But i do not see any flaws in the finish per say, just coulda been done better. The satin neck is great to play on.

Musical Background:
10 years bass, 3 years guitar.

Musical Style:
Rock, pop, metal
