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.
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.
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.
