Got this used for $100 all in from the local GC. Not sure of the year. But I’ve been looking for a budget guitar that is actually worth playing as I’m back in a “funds going to debt/family stuff” phase of life. Plays really nice actually, that’s what drew me to it immediately. Fret ends could use a bit of filing, but nowhere near the hand slicers that GC has for like 90 percent of their new guitars. Intonation is solid. Stays in tune about as well as my CV did, which was pretty decent. Action is perfect with no buzzing. Really better than I could say for a number of guitars I’ve had which were much more expensive. I do plan to swap the pickups. The stock ones are passable, generic and bland but decent for a high gain sound or an 80s flat clean sound. Thinking my usual go to of a Duncan 59 and Alnico 2 Pro, but also considering sticking with higher output pickups. Not as well versed in those though I’ve had a few, so if you have any suggestions I’d welcome them. I play everything from alternative, to hard rock, to alt-country, classic rock, ambient/shoegaze, punk, etc., so some versatility is welcome.
