What I Liked:

It's a great guitar. Plays perfectly, great tone, pretty sturdy as well. The tuner works at drum circles, at night. Also, it's an internal tuner so the lightest note you play will pick up, and backround noise is a non-issue. That by itself is awesome when you jam in a lot of strange places. The lines are very clean. The inlays are nice, and the one I have has a fantastic red pearl finish. All in all, a great buy.

What I Disliked:

In daytime glare the tuner can be hard to read.

What I Would Change:

Make it a 5-channel EQ, beef up the sound a tad.


Unless you're willing to shell out $1,300+, this is the one you want.
