This guitar features to single coil pickups as well as a volume control knob and a tone control knob. It also has a pickup selector and that's pretty much about it. You get a straight up rock guitar that is just brilliant to listen to and is just a fantastic overall instruments.
I love the tone of this guitar primarily with a good solid clean amplifier and any distortion boxer overdrive pedal out in front of the amp. This is a guitar that's not going to get you thick saturated warm tones, but it's going to get you a percussive high frequency snappy clean tone. If you use a lot of distortion in your amplifier in this guitar does sound good but it's not going to quite give you that beef and drive that you might be used to out of a Gibson Les Paul guitar or another humbucker sinstalled guitar.
These guitars are very highly used in the country world as well as all the way up to the hard rock world. This is the kind of guitar that is going to be a life or guitar for you. It has a unique tone that is very fender like because it is Fender but extremely different than a Fender Stratocaster. Both can pretty much play in the same style of music but this one has a little bit different feel in the neck and is pretty little bit thinner so it gets a little faster aggressive snappier lead and solo tones. They generally feature ash wood so you get that nice brilliant tones good for clean playing. You can find these guitars for just around thousand dollars or so new and used for around $6-$700. You can find them pretty much anywhere you look for any guitar instruments.
