« Nahhh I'll pass. »

This guitar feels and sounds like someone with no background on building guitars put this together blind folded. The build quality is as cheap as humanly possible. I actually think the pickups are probably worth more than the wood of the guitar itself.

This guitar came in the combo pact that came with an equally unimpressive Fender guitar amp. Both together will bring out the howling dogs. I think that amp sounds best in the off position. The guitar sounds best unplugged and sitting in the closet of little Johnny's room.

UTILIZATION

Red Affinity HSS Stratocaster:

* 25.5” Scale Length
* Agathis Body
* Maple Neck, C-Shape w/Polyurethane Finish
* Rosewood Fingerboard, 9.5” Radius
* 22 Medium Jumbo Frets
* 2 Single-Coil Pickups (Neck/Mid), 1 Humbucking Pickup (Bridge)
* Master Volume, Tone 1 (Neck Pickup), Tone 2 (Middle Pickup) controls
* 5-Position Blade Pickup Switch
* Synchronous Tremolo Bridge
* Standard Die-Cast Tuners
* Chrome Hardware
* 1-Ply White Pickguard
* White Dot Position Inlays

SOUNDS

This guitar would be better put to use as fire wood then actually playing. The pickups are very weak and brittle sounding. The combination of this guitar with the Fender amp that you get in the pack is just ear piecing bad. I completely understand that this is a starter pack for the uninformed, but for any experienced player putting their hands on this guitar will leave them scratching their head wondering who would want to continue to learn the guitar if they were giving this thing.

OVERALL OPINION

At new this guitar comes in at around $200, which included the amp and guitar strap, gig bag, pick selection, and tuner. It is a starter kit and I understand that but the only people that would go for this is the beginner.

I would not recommend this to any guitar player needing a back up guitar or even a practice guitar. You won't find this guitar appealing in any way. I would recommend this pack to someone who wants to get their kid started with the electric guitar. It is cheap and inexpensive and won't break the bank discovering if you kid has the talent or desire to continue to further their musical talents.
