Bought this with no high expectations. It was sold as blemished, but I don't really see anything other than a couple of same scrapes where it might have rubbed against something. Kind of surprised at the little amp. Doesn't sound too bad for a mini. Sounds decent on clean or dirty channel. The guitar is tight, straight and ready to play. At some point soon I'll polish the frets up and round the fret ends a little. They're okay but I'm kind of picky about how they feel. The strings got to go as well. They feel a little tinny. Again my preference. I use custom strings (8.5-39/40). Prior to me doing anything to the guitar it plays nice and sounds more comparable to the Epi Les Paul Studio Lite, with a little steroid use. I never thought that I would play out with it, but I may. It's lighter than my Gretsch Electromagnetic, and sounds very similar on the bass and middle. It's throatier than the Gretsch, in a good way. Gig bag is a little skinny but has some padding. I won't use the picks, I like a rounder tip. I play heavy and sharper tips slow me down.The strap is meh. I'm tall, it isn't lol. Overall I think it's an excellent buy for the price I paid.
