I bought this guitar when I started to really take guitar seriously and I still pick up this guitar to this day. The pickups aren't the good but, you won't be able to tell that if you are just moving up. I eventually switched them out for Seymour Duncan Invaders and it just works really well with this guitar. I have little to no complaints for this guitar except for the craftsmanship isn't premium but I don't expect that from a guitar this cheap, and the body wood is really soft. It looks like a MDF if I'm completely honest. But still a great sounded guitar and plays great.
