General What is your overall opinion of this product? Very impressive with it's unique look cool tones the shorter scale makes power chords sound great body contour is very comfortable for sit down players like m. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? For the money i would give it 4 out of 5 stars my only complaint is for the money i think they could of used alder instead of basswood i have nothing against basswood i just don't consider it to be one of the better tone woods. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? The neck feels comfortable plays smooth the controls are easy to access while playing . Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? Because of the wiring setup you can coax some really cool tones out of this baby the duncan designed pickups can get pretty hot and thick but you can back it off a little mellow out or back off a lot and get that bell like chime of a clean strat. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? I have the fiesta red model which is pretty hard to mess up so i give 5 stars on the finish. I got a good one no adjustments were needed other then a very small adjustment to the action Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? Better then expected well worth the money Playability How was the action out of the box? Beautiful
Set up will be needed

General Your general opinion of this product. Over all, I really like the guitar. I've always wanted a Mustang but with a kid on the way and numerous other projects, I couldn't justify spending $900 on a Fender or selling one of Fender Strats to get one. I know a lot of people complain about the neck of the guitar, but I absolutely love it's profile. The bridge pick up sounds alright both clean and distorted, but could benefit from wax potting. The neck pickup is a completely different story and it'll be changed soon. The bridge was and still is a complete disaster and is in need of a professional set up. I find low E to drop out of tune easily. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Straight out of the box, not dependable at all. Throw an extra $100 at it for a set up and some minor parts and it's good to go. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? It's not a great pickup, but I love the pickup in the bridge position. The neck pickup sounds very muddy when distorted. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The finish was actually really good on the guitar I received. The only thing I've changed was the pick guard but that was just for color preference.
