I have one of these that I bought new about 5 years ago. It is NOW one of my favorite guitars, but it wasn't always that way. I have to take off some stars due to some significant quality control issues:
First, the tuners looked exactly like Grovers, but they were actually cheap knock offs. Worse, three of the tuning keys had some amount of play each way (1/16-1/8 turn), making tuning difficult and annoying. It was not possible to fix this by tightening them, as I found casting voids around the shaft area. I probably could have made them work using epoxy and a needle file, but I opted to replace them with Grovers, which are a direct swap.
Second, I didn't think the stock pickups sounded bad, but they were both microphonic (feedback related to the pickup not the strings) at only moderate volumes. This was surprising, as all modern pickups (including these) are wax potted. Something in their construction must have been vibrating, but there was nothing...
