Okay for this guitar....for the money, its a great way to start to see if you like the floating tremelo systems or not. I've had this guitar for about two years I believe, and its been good to me. The one thing that I would definetely switch is the pickup. The pickup does not do very good pinch harmonics and stuff. I guess one other thing is to switch the tremelo to an original floyd rose. Other than that, like I said before, it's a great guitar for the money.
