This guitar was my first electric guitar. All the hardware is pretty basic but its lasted about five years now. the whammy bar broke off in the bridge, mostly due to my own incompetence, but a replacement was only about $20. Overall it could be better, but it could be a lot worse for a first electric guitar
I put in a set of seymour duncan everything axe pickups, and it screams! The stock electronics are all garbage so I switched them all out, I also changed the tuners and bridge, but the neck plays great and the body is nice and light. Be careful though, as the playability of the guitar greatly varies between individual pieces.
This little thing was given to me as a gift and I accepted just so I could see what I could turn it into, but after a quick polish, set up, and restring, it's one of my favorite guitars and has come out to play better than most fenders I've ever picked up in my time. Very surprising, the deep blue is gorgeous and the flamed maple neck is absolutely beautifully done.
