I own not one but two of these guitars. I bought my first in the 6th grade and have used it ever since. The guitar has been one of my favorites and has custom work done to it. The other has stayed stock since I bought it in 2013. I used both often as although they may not be an expensive and incredibly fancy guitar they still sound great. They are comfortable and have been dependable in all the time I've had them traveling between my house, band practice, and gigs.
Currently in the process of replacing the potentiometers and the pickups on my own. I've always liked how it feels better than any other electric, but the standard electronics kind of blow. Replace them as soon as you get yours and you should be fairly happy.
