    Not awful, but not hot either.  Despite the unusual aspects (inlays, pickups) it's very plain Jane.

      Call me a gear snob but it doesn't matter how good it is, it still says "First Act" on the headstock. Therefore definitely not hot.

    Looks like someone got too close to the pickups with steel wool.  I'm sure it's a good guitar, but I just can't get past the Walmart image.  I'll bet they would sell a lot more of their high end stuff it they branded it differently.

      I like it, but not $700 like. $150-$200 sure if it plays good.

      Those pics are the reason that steel wool shouldn't be used on guitars.  There are so many better synthetic products out there now it's not worth the hassle.
