I bought this guitar at nevada music, portsmouth (uk). Basically I sat in the session room at the back, trying out LOADS of new guitars. The only one that was better (in my price range) was the Silvertone Soveriegn Pro, which was £205. Mine cost me £145.
Attractive looking guitar, very good value for money. The pick-ups are excellent, and allows for very effective palm-mutting. The neck is relatively thin, which means fast moving and quick chords are nice and easy. Also, the general sound is just what i was looking for.
Its a bit heavy, and has no whammy bar. The centre of mass seems to be very far to the left, which means it requires a bit of work to hold up. But this is easily overcome.
(see likes) Excellent, no problems. Very sturdy and well made.
Excellent value for money. You'd have to pay a lot more for soemthing else like this (Les Paul type stuff). I'd give it 4.5 actually, but they havn't got that button!!
