i can drive this beauty like a standard car. In my opinion it's better than any USA strat at half the cost. swap out the humbucker for a nice Seymour and you're rolling. Also sanded down my neck a lot! changed the tuning pegs to 1970's kluson diagonals, repainted and sealed my pickguard, also swapped out the pots for new 500Ks. Naturally, roadworn of course!
Beautiful, a nearly perfect mid-range guitar.
I have had nothing but joy come from this guitar. Pros: -Lush, creamy tone from single-coils. -Stays in tune even when performing hard divebombs with the trem. -Beautiful color and finish. -Excellent action. Cons: -The 2 and 4 positions don't cancel out as much hum as I would like, but they work fairly well. -No locking tuners.
It's never let me down!
Years ago, my parents were hugely against me getting this. I got it anyway, wanting to actually BUY my first guitar. Since then, it's been the best investment i've ever made. I've actually owned guitars at nearly double the MIM's price-point and it still stands strong. It hasn't let me down for 4-5 years, I couldn't recommend this guitar enough!
