General Comments:
My recommendation is YES, BUT>>>>

The cidro body is nice and light. For this guitar to really be useful, some overhauling needs to be done. For beginners, it's great. I bought 3 of them, because I got them very cheaply. Two absolute musts are replacing all wiring, including the input jack and pickup selector switch. I replaced the tuners to Jackson USA tuners, but I didn't have a huge problem with the originals. I didn't care for the stock pickups, but beginners won't have an issue with them. I loaded mine with GFS PAF pups, and the guitars now sound great. GFS pups are very inexpensive and make this beginner guitar sound better.

What do you especially like about this product?
the initial costs

What do you dislike about this product?
the wiring and the pickups
