"Affordable and Dependable Guitar for any Guitarist!"
Great Guitar for learning, awesome price & nice features make it Kid friendy and keeps holes out of parents wallets. You may find yourself upgrading in the future, but in my mind there is no better setup for the "just starting" Guitarist.
The Stock Buckers are pretty decent for the price of this Guitar, but are a bit lacking when it comes to "tonal clarity"
Nice heavy "meaty" sound on the lower frets and fairly exceptional highs on the uppers. For the price you cant go wrong!
1 Volume, 1 Tone and a 3-way blade switch are a pretty simple setup.
The tone knob works wonders when you plug into an amp that has WAY to much factory Gain. The blade switch tends to add ALOT of Mud to the sound when switched to the neck pickup, sounds somewhat like your listening to your amp through a thick wall. Overall? a real light-weight Guitar thats user friendly!
Ease of Use
Frets are easy to find and chording is a cinch, the Neck however is a little thick and can cause hand cramps every so often (just take breaks)
Tuners are a little tricky at times and need re-tuning often.
works great with Digitech's RP series of pedals. and as for the whammy? nice add on but tends to make the strings fall out of tune easily, I would suggest stronger springs in the back.
Very Durable Guitar indeed. The paint job is pretty simple and can take a beating. padded gig bag? no problem, just toss it in back with the rest of your gear. Tuners are durable too but once again keep tuning them! seems to take a variety of different Guaged strings without effecting Tonality. overall one heck of a beast, mine's starting to look like Van Halen's Frankenstein but still sounds good!
for a new Guitarist, you cant get much better for the price of this Rocker. Its no ESP, but for practice or "getting the lead out" this is a great Guitar!
Never have had any problems with this Guitar, its defenitly a keeper.
The Wow Factor
Looks wise? Its no High-end Guitar, you get what you pay for...regardless of what others tell you. My Guitar is a standard Blue, but whats in the looks anyway?
