very good with other pickups
I use this guitar for 2,5 years but I found the original pickups a bit too thin, and I decided to put a set of Johnny Elca pickups but it was not all my sound yet. I received a package from my father's friend with Semour Duncan SH-4 pickups a week ago and that $ 100 guitar sounds really cool. The SH-4's have a pretty dull sound, but it certainly sounds really good. The neck pickup has a nice, non les paul sound but very cool.

A piece of shit that I turned into something probably shittier.
I call this guitar DJ. He is absolute crap; within a month of getting him, the bridge pickup went microphonic. Instead of wasting money fixing a shitty guitar, I did something worse.
I took a 42 gauge string that I had lying around, snipped all the strings off of DJ, and put the spare 42 gauge where the D string should be. I tune it down way low and use it to sort of djent when I'm super bored.
Obviously, it doesn't work well. It's just a shitty guitar that I can't sell and don't want to throw away for sentiment.
OK beginner guitar good value for the price.
This guitar taught me the value of setting the intonation and working on the bridge. I also replaced the bridge pickup with Reilander Reverenb humbucker to get some definition and clarity of sound from the bridge position. This guitar can be a solid work-horse, just needs attention paid to it.
