First thing that you'll notice: this is one heavy piece of machinery. The hardware is good enough, body has a small blemish in the laquer near the neck joint. Nice chuncky neck, but not to big. Tuners stay in tune like they should. Electronics are rubbish though. As soon as you take of the covers on the back you see extra drilling holes and shitty finishing, but thats on the inside. I swapped out the pickups and all the electronics (including the switches) and now it's a beast.
