The interface is typical of a Stratocaster, so with its default and (especially) its quality! You just get used to the single volume knob and two switches to activate / program change. It is extremely well finished but do not forget that 300 is a guitar ...
The sound effects are not correct, as any copy of Start 'but with this micro INTERESTED double well for CASC + musical styles.
The sound with effects, I find trs good (unlike the first opinion) and really efficace.Les reverbs / dlais are beautiful, heavy distortion / crunch crdibles (not the big distortion mtallique! ), the tuner is just a lightweight pratique.Il "transit time" of a pRSET another.

This is a guitar store that I tried on an "old" Valvestate 20W clear sound, it is not for me (I am used this ct-l!).
I admit that j'tais doubtful before testing but this guitar is made dcente for the price (- 300). To teach unencumbered home amp, effects, etc. ... or jam to go why not?

The finish is not great but ...
1) The multi-purpose Intgr sounds good trs
2) it is comfortable to play
3) sounds correctly without effect
4) it is not CHRE
