It's quite amazing how well guitars are built these days. This guitar cost me very little, and we used it on virtually every track on the album, on both singles, and on the new ep too. I think it sounds just fine, with a nice full tone. I have had it set up - almost every guitar I own I have set up, so that's the norm.
It's been to a few countries with me, and its been knocked about, but that's ok.
