For the price, this is a great guitar. However, we have had problems with the jack coming off, which requires an intensive search of the studio for it, and then a couple minutes to figure out what tightness will work the best at the given moment. That tightness changes with temperature, humidity, etc. The lead tone is nice and brassy, the center position of the pickup switch is very loud and dissonant, and the rhythm position is warm and jazzy. It definitely has that "dark" mahogany tone. Good beginner guitar, and an alright professional one.
I have no end of pleasure, playing this guitar. So far, I haven't found any reason not to love this guitar, and no issue with playing any style of music. Thrash, Black, Death, Rock, Classical, etc. It suffices for all.
The guitar is great for the price, the sound is deep and full. Still I recommend to listen to a few of them and choose the one which sounds better (a common approach to budget guitars). It is mate, so it may get scratches and fingertips fast, be aware that it will look not as cool as at the start very soon. The guitar also looks awesome on photos lol.
I've been using this guitar live and in the studio for a few years now, for something so inexpensive, it destroys. I use it with an EMG 81 in the bridge and an EMG 60 in the neck. I've absolutely wonderful to play and sounds absolutely pissed.
Despite the looks, you can play almost anything with this guitar. The only con for me is the pickups, you can do a lot of good things with the stock pickups, but I recommend changing it to fit your style.
