Mine is nearly 4 years old now and was bought as a cheap temporary replacement for my Ibanez art120. Stock the guitar was pretty decent straight out the box, the action was great, the neck was dead straight and the pickups sounded surprisingly good. I set the humbucker a franction closer to the strings which gave it a slight crunch. The two single coils sounded excellent too. I have since modded the guitar and now have two alnico 5 single coils and a SD sh-4 JB with cts pots and a crl switch. Also drilled out the headstock for 10mm tuners and put some cheap sealed tuners in till i get some decent ones. The original tuners didn't hold tune very well and the springs wasn't set up great either, very lose so the trem moved easily.
Anyway, I recommend the guitar for someone starting out, in need of a short term replacement or just wants a good platform to mod on
Good layout with the humbucker. However mine doesn't have quite as nice quality as a higher end fender Strats. At some point i would like to replace the stock humbucker it with a Seymour Duncan invader to get that Blink 182 tone! :p
