This guitar is so much fun to play with. It's a 12 string electric with four onboard effects (distortion, chorus, tremolo, and echo). The tone is similar to a Fender Strat with the three single coils. The effects can sound pretty cheesy, but there is a knob that controls how much of the effect is in your signal (subtlety is key if you want to use them). You can also use multiple effects at once, being that they're on buttons that stay depressed when engaged, so mix and match!
