I own an 1967 gibson SG, 1952 Gibson L7c, Fender Strat's etc.
I love to setup guitars and get the best action possible. My mother just bought the Retro Fire (new) for just $ 139.00 with included amp etc. The Amp is worthless, so are the accessories. However, properly setup, the Peavey Retro Fire is a very playable guitar. You can achieve good action on the neck, the adjustments on the bridge are very good. It sounds great! I would have no problem playing this guitar in a local rock band.
Well worth the money and more...Vic

This is my first guitar i got as a gift and it is perfect for a beginner; cheap, comfortable, easy to tune, and playable. 5/5 for a beginner.
That said, once I improved and was able to hear different sounds i noticed the guitar is cheap quality and it's probably time for a new one. If you're looking for a guitar to play gigs with, then this probably isn't for you. There's nothing wrong with it, only you get what you pay for.
3.5 stars rounded up since it's a 5 for beginners. Enjoy and rock on!
