Reviews From Buyers
I'm a mom of a really excited teenaged son who has been playing for about 3 years. His first electric guitar had some wear and tear issues that the replacement policy dealt with (LOVE GUITAR CENTER!!) and now it was time to step up. He went and played LOTS of guitars at GC. (I don't know diddly about buying guitars, but, I know how to buy equipment, so I kept asking WHY this one was better than another etc.) After some helpful advice from staff, and 3 different trips to make sure, he honed in on this one and wouldn't budge. We looked at everything priced $500 and under and the neck feel, how long it stayed in tune... all the little annoying questions I asked, he liked this one and didn't go for the higher priced ones. He likes heavy metal (heaven help me!) and, I think he's good. (When I holler to yell at him to turn down his CD, he yells, "that was ME" so, it can't be ALL just a mother's opinion). So, the evidence points to this guitar being a solid one for the intermediate player.
