Needs work, but more guitar than you get with others at this price point.
I bought this guitar because I needed a Telecaster style guitar. I fell in love with the design. After upgrading the electronics, replacing the pickups with a DiMarzio True Velvet in the neck, and a DiMarzio Area Hot T in the bridge, and replacing the nut and hardware, this is one of my favorite guitars in my collection. Very clean, smooth, and dynamic, with serious bite when you need it.
