Got this for my son who turns 5 on May 6th. Picked up the Champ on ebay and got it in the mail yesterday. It sounds great. The SX Strat from Rhondo is a 3/4 size lefty that cost less than a hundred bucks. The pickups actually sound decent, have a nice warm tone to them. Much better than the buzzsaw sound that my MIM strat has. It plays great considering how inexpensive it is. It's also made in China. Would have gotten him a Tele style if they made a 3/4 size. Hope my son likes it. He decided he wants to play guitar like his daddy. If not at least I'll have a cool little practice amp.
