Shot paid off
I'm not surprised very often. While I have several high-end guitars (Les Paul, Rickenbacker, PRS) I wanted something to sit around the beach with that I didn't have to necessarily guard with my life. In the picture this looked cool, had a good amount of "wipe-off" plastic, and didn't require a second job to pay for. Yea, I knew it was made in Korea but they need some income to buy our tanks and guns.
Anyway, this is a terrific guitar. Good sound, easy and fun to play, and generally very well made. Came nicely boxed and set-up and nary a scratch or scrape. It's as close to a bargain as I've gotten for a long time!
