Just what I was looking forI'm a beginning guitarist so I can't get too technical, but this is just the instrument I was looking for. It's a beautiful guitar and I just love the shape, it looks and feels great. I was looking for some variety in tone while I try to learn and the humbuckers with triple shot rings provides it in spades. The build quality seems excellent and the Plek treatment is spot on. I've got a couple of other reasonably priced guitars and checked out a few more, but this is the first one that came without some fret buzzing. I think this is probably the best bang for the buck available, and that's not even taking into account the nice hard case that it comes in. I definitely recommend it, and don't think anybody would be disappointed with the money spent.

Value PlusI was expecting a so so guitar at this price point but this guitar is one of the best kept secrets around.. build quality is flawless, a joy to play, and easy on the eyes. but best of all is the sound, it is very articulate at clean and overdriven tones. no mud at all. this is a bright cutting guitar like a maple capped guitar would sound. Wechter stock pickups are vintage voiced, very open with lots of depth. with the switching options there are so many sounds in this guitar and none of them bad. so versatile . I play in a top 40 country/ classic rock band that has required me to gig with 3 guitars , strat/tele/ and a humbucker parker or sg.. past 2 weekends I have played this guitar exclusively.. IMO there is not a better value in the guitar market today. Try one you wont be disappointed.

The Swiss Army Knife of GuitarsAlthough this guitar has a nice slim neck, the string tension feels a lot more Les Paul to me than Strat. It's heavy like a Les Paul, and although the tremolo isn't blocked, it has remarkable sustain.
In a lot of ways, this reminds me of the old Peavey T-60. 2 humbuckers than can be coil tapped and a phase switch. The only difference is that this has the added ability to run the pickups in series or parallel.
It's balanced, and feels good. This is definitely going to be a guitar in heavy rotation.

Good but not greatIt plays amazingly and you can get some pretty good tones out of it. The build of the guitar is great for the price and it includes a heavy duty case. But, I some parts of the guitar are not so great. The volume knobs seem very inconsistent, they don't do much until the last few ticks before muting the pickup. The pickup switches are raised up and are way too easy to hit while strumming. I constantly switch my pickup modes in the middle of songs which is really annoying. In the single coil modes of the pickups are very noisy. Compared to other guitars with single coils, there is a lot of hiss that comes from these.
