Keep in mind this guitar is only $100, so it's not anything too stellar, but I would happily spend $250-$350 for this guitar. But, I didn't even spend a single penny! (I got this guitar for free at the NAMM Show three years ago.) The action is a little too high for my taste though, and the intonation can be annoying at some times, but it sounds GREAT! It actually sounds like a real Les Paul, and I love it. The input jack gets loose really easily which is a huge annoyance, but then again, this is a $100 guitar. If you put some work into this guitar though, it will be perfect.
