Better than you could ever expect it to be...
by Jeff H from Twin Cities, MNAs reviewer "Zach" said above, this is the ideal guitar for a beginner because the neck is thin, the action is low, and it's just so darn friendly to play. However, "beginner's guitar" really is an u... read more [+]nfair for this description because there are elements of it on par with $500 guitars. The neck is almost Jackson or Gibson like in its playability. The frets are filed down smooth. It stays in tune remarkably well, certainly better than a stock Squier.

Then there's the pickups - they are likely ceramic, but they are incredibly hot, in a good way! The magnet pole pieces are oversized, and this may contribute to the bold sound. H-S-S configuration, in my opinion, offers maximum versatility across rock, blues, country, and so on.
The switches and pots seem a bit on the cheap side, but that's not surprising, and also easy to upgrade in the future. I actually think I'm leaving as much of it stock as I can. It sounds like an overwound Strat, but with a super sleek body and faster neck. Say what you want about Peavey, but it's just a nice instrument at an unbelievable price. close [-]

Definitely would recommend this guitar to any beginner or player on a budget, it will serve you well! close [-]
