First off, this is simply a BEGINNER guitar. It's an American company, though I highly doubt it's American labor. Probably Southeast Asian. The Bridge is standard bridge, the neck is maple with a rosewood fretboard. There are three low-quality single-coils on it, and two knobs, volume and tone. The pickup selector switch is a five-way.

UTILIZATION

This guitar is not easy to play, nor are there easy access to the top frets. The nice sounds are almost impossible to get. This, even for a beginner guitar, is pretty crappy. It's light enough for a kid to play, and I doubt a 10 year old is going to care much about some of this stuff, so maybe this age group is ideal.

SOUNDS

The sounds that come out of this guitar are abysmal. I was hoping to find a rare gem, something that wouldn't be terrible for $150. This wasn't it. It feeds back at almost the same level as the guitar plays. Forget distortion! You'll be so irritated at it you won't even want to play anymore. The clean tones are tinny, and weak. I don't particularly like any kind of music with this, expect maybe punk rock. Therefore, it's probably only appropriate for pre-teens, because even an 18-year old punk rocker would hate this.

OVERALL OPINION

I hate to trash this guitar so much, because it's such a cheap guitar anyway. But really, I could only imagine a young kid buying this, which makes sense. Parents buying guitars for their kids, if you want your kids to stick with it, DON'T skimp. Guitars that would have cost $50 when you were a kid are worth at least $300 nowadays. The labor is that bad. If, on the other hand, you want your kids to grow out of this phase quickly, this might be exactly what you are looking for, because it will be tough for your kid to really get into playing guitar if it always sounds bad.
