The not so good: I would characterize this guitar as a work in progress as I received it. I found the following problems: bad solder joint on output, no sound until repaired - nut slots needed to be smoothed out, both the G and high E strings were hanging up and making that "sitar" noise - fret ends needed to be worked on, very sharp - tremolo was decked, and it seems the saddle height was set up with the back edge on the guitar top, when it was adjusted to "float" properly the string height was too low.
I understand that this is not a Fender custom shop guitar, but you would think even the most basic quality check would turn up the fact that there was no output, or that the nut was faulty. These issues have not soured me on the guitar - it looks good, sounds good, plays good, and if it needed some work that's on me for taking it on - I'm sure Amazon would have sent me a replacement if I'd asked (but I really liked the flame top and burst on this one and didn't want to take a chance the replacement might not look so nice...).
I noticed one reviewer had a complaint about the "chrome", believing that "chrome" means "metal" - it doesn't. Chromium is a chemical element - chrome plating is a process that surfaces a product (plastic, metal etc.) with chromium.
As far as playing is concerned, any guitar in the hands of a master sounds great - if you're looking for an inexpensive instrument to get started on, this is for you. Match it with a Fender Mustang 1 amp and you can sound like the pros!
