Solid work horse
The Yamaha EG112C was my first guitar that I got for Christmas and to be honest, I wasn't very psyched for it since I wanted an Epiphone Les Paul, but at least I had a guitar so I took care of it. This guitar has been through everything from the average ding on the headstock and body, to huge paint chips from falling on the ground and my temper tantrums throwing it into my drums and cymbals. It has survived it all perfectly, still playable and not needing a setup yet. In fact, I only broke the jackplate a couple of days ago after 3 years of extremely heavy abuse. This guitar might not be the best sounding guitar or the best looking, but it's definitely solid, it'll last forever and it's worth the money. Highly recommended.
Great beginners axe
So I got this as a christmas present around 2007, as my first electric guitar, and 12 years later it was the backbone of my music pasion and I still conserve it and play it, of course some upgrades had to be done cause is not a high end instrument so a lot of things damage or stop working around the years. I installed new electronics, a Fender Vintage 5 way pickup selector (one of the best purchases I've done) an SD Invader pickup for the bridge, a tortoise pickguard, a maple fingerboard neck and new tuners, but first out of the box is really playable and great as a first guitar
