According to several user reviews, the features on this guitar are ones that you would find on guitars twice the price. The two active pickups are clear on clean channels and heavy aggressive on lead or rhythm channels. When combined with my Peavey Valveking and Metal Muff with Top Boost it’s enough to satisfy almost any metal player. Overall you can’t beat this guitar for this price. Don’t let the price fool you, this is much better than an entry level guitar.
