I bought this used at Guitar Center for about $150.
This guitar was great, the action was a lot lower compared to many of the Mexican Strats that other friends had. After a little bit of tweaking, I was able to get a faster feel than even my sister's Ibanez S470DXQM.
Also, if you are into the looks, then the black polish is great, despite its habit to show fingerprints, etc.
The bridge obviously is cheap, and don't even think of using a whammy bar on this one.
Ever since the action is low, I suggest medium gauge strings, in order to remove the fret buzz, which annoyed me beyond believe.
The guitar is probably a decent guitar for the price. You get what you pay for.
The finish was impressive, and if you take care of it with a bit of polish, it will always be beautiful to show off.
I would definitely recommend it as an entry to mid level guitar. My only complains would be the fret buzz, thus not allowing you to play with light strings.
I bought it in Budapest, in a shop named "Finkey". I paid 70000 Ft, it's about $280. Among the other guitars in this category, I found it the clearest in voice.
I like its shape, first of all, but of course it isn`t the most important thing. I use it with a Hughes&Kettner amp and I use a Boss MT-2 and an Electroharmonix Big Muff, and when I swith between pickups, it can be heard very nicely. The volume adjustment is quite smooth, as well. The guitar has a surprisingly clear and wide sound.
It's the pickups. The screws often loosen, and I have to adjust them almost every week, because they sink in the body, causing volume decreasing. It`s really embarrassing. On the neck, it's quite rough to play on, though I don't say it would be impossible to get used to. The volume adjuster gets loosen often, as well. It is a pity that the whole thing lacks stability.
Good sound among cheap guitars, that's what I think about the quality, it was worth it, but the physical attributes are weak. All the screws loosen too quick.
