PROS: Cost. Great value, well worth it at the price point. Neck. Awesome neck shape and speed. Easy to reach the top string because of the neck shape. Hardware. Good smooth feel with the tuning pegs. Love the black bridge, it's easy to adjust and looks great. Body. Surprisingly, it's way lighter than I expected. I have a couple 6-strings that are much heavier. Pickups. Good to start out with. I'll keep them for a while. Visually. The white model is very attractive. The black hardware contrasts it beautifully. And, the 5-piece maple/walnut neck is gorgeous. CONS: Strings. The stings that came on it are unusable, very floppy, barely bigger than what I use on one of my 6-strings. Pickups. The pickups will need to be changed at some point, but if you're not needing to play shows with it immediately, they're good enough. Visually. This is more a nit picky thing. In the pictures the fretboard looks a lot darker than it does in person. It could just be a trick of the eye with it being on a white background. Also, there is a dark smudge on the top of my headstock, but to be honest I haven't taken any guitar cleaner to it. I've only tried to clean it with my finger and with a paper towel. FINAL THOUGHTS: I love this guitar.
