Just picked one up one week ago, I really like it. It feels like a nice blend of a Tele that allows you to play cords easily and an SG, light body with balls with a nice tone. Action and finish are FLAWLESS, the Chinese are making some quality instruments. I fought and put down Chinese products for a long time (this is only my second china ax) but recently I had to accept that for the price, these are an unbeatable value. I don't know how an American guitar can be better in look, feel, and sound at even double the price. The finish in this guitar is every bit as good as that of my good US-made Les Pauls and Strats. This is a "middle of the road" guitar, no fancy components, or finishes, just a very good 1K guitar that costs a lot less than that.
