(Originally written by melody_maker/translated from Audiofanzine FR)
- Made in China.

- 22 frets; two humbuckers

- Fix bridge, body-through strings

- Volume and tone controls, 3-way toggle switch

- Rather flat neck


- The neck is comfortable

- Depending on your taste you'll find better and worse necks (it's perfect for me but a friend with the same guitar has lots of problems with this neck)

- On the picture it looks like it would have a "big bottom". Average weight (lighter than a Gibson Les Paul Studio–which I don't recommend–but heavier than a Gibson Les Paul Melody Maker–which I do recommend)

- It's easy to get a good sound and it's pretty good considering the price


- I play mainly rock stuff (AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Green Day, Ramones, etc.) and the guitar sounds very good, but it isn't that good for heavy metal

- I play it with a Roland Cube 60 without any pedal and the sound is quite good

- Brilliant and well-defined clean sound. With a light distortion the sound is also very good (considering it's a budget guitar), but with a fat distortion the sound turns imprecise and you feel that the guitar was not made for that


- I've owned it for about seven months and I haven't had any problems yet


- Quite good sound for a beginner guitar


- Huge bottom

- I tried out other models before buying it but this one was my favorite (and also the cheapest)

- Very good value for money.

- Based on my experience, I would buy it again as a second guitar. I use it to prevent my Gibson from getting damaged when I go to a rehearsal or when traveling

Very good practice guitar (or second guitar) with a very good value for money
