I got this electric guitar for my birthday at Kohls. It is regulary $179.99 but i bought it when it was on sale about two weeks ago. So far I am very happy with the results. This is my first electric guitar. I use to have an acoustic but I gave it away. The spectrum is a fantastic guitar for learners and is very easy to learn. It even comes with with a mini amp for practicing, a guitar strap, extra strings and picks, a clearning cloth and a truss rod. Another good thing that the people around me appreciate about it is that the mini amp comes with a headphone jack so that while i'm practice at night or when guest come over they don't have to be disturbed.
It also has volume and tone controls and a 5-way pickup selector switch. The only thing i wasn't too happy about is that it seemed like it was sitting on the shelf for a while because when i opened it i noticed that some of the bolts on it were starting to rust but it doesn't affect the playing at all.
