I bought a left handed version from here a couple of years ago. There was an issue right away and Sam Ash was good enough to ship out a replacement free. This is not a bad guitar but there were some issues that I had to take care of first. Luckily after 35 years playing ice picked up a few tricks. She needed a set up first but that's too be expected at this price range. Also the bridge pickup was routed slightly crooked and off center. I had to drill and fill the holes and move stuff around. By the way all the screws in this guitar are made from very soft cheap metal and strip easily (I was using a set of precision gunsmith screwdrivers too). The plastics seemed to have actually expanded a bit, I've had to sand down the edges to make them fit instead again of bowing out. The bar holding down the strings behind the nut wasn't down far enough and the guitar would go sharp when tightening down the locks, but the holes were already drilled down far so I had to cut off the tips of the screws. The edges of the frets were sticking out far, they were never finished (you have to save money somewhere) so I had to do all that work myself. I also replaced the pickups but the original ones are all right. A beginner wouldn't have noticed these things and it's a good guitar but if you have a little knowledge and a workshop you can tune it nicely.
