General Comments:
When I first recieved this guitar, I had an idea of what to expect from all the reviews I read, but Wow! Upgrading from a cheap Start copy ( Johnson JS-800), this thing just blew me away!

What do you especially like about this product?
One thing I love about this guitar is its shape; I love the curves on it. The finish is also cool looking (I have the all black one.) It is also very light weight, I feel very comfortable holding it compared to my brothers heavy Gibson SG. I love the variety of sounds on this guitar; I can go from a nice jazz sound on clean to a hard rock crunch on overdrive/ gain. Also, it has great sustain.

My first review, hope I did it right. oh and I got it for a great price, $240 on ebay.

What do you dislike about this product?
Well since this is my first "real" guitar, I don't have much to compare to, but If I had to I would say that I wish it had a tone and volume knob for each pickup.
