I don't play electric guitar as often as I play acoustic. However, when I do pick up an electric, I tend to pick up this one. Obviously, this isn't quite as good as a Standard Fender Strat, but this guitar has a great tone range for the price.
I really dig this guitar, it's just as good as the mexican strats if not better. The glossy neck was a bit of problem so I sanded it down (which took a long time because the lacquer is really thick). Also, the trem broke off pretty early on but that might be my fault. The sound is awesome, pretty bright but with nice lows.
