It's a Fender, but an inexpensive one compared to like a US Strat. I think it may be a smaller scale neck than a regular Strat but I'm not positive. I would get like a $99 electric on sale if you are just learning honestly. I still have my Epiphone Les Paul Jr that was great to learn in and no big investment if I quit.

I just want to buy a deeply discounted fender, but with fender shape and sound. I sold my les paul because it is too heavy.

This is a pretty good deal, if you like this guitar. It's not likely to get too much lower.

As far as the guitar itself, it's kind of an oddball instrument - shortscale 24", which can be excellent for teens and people of smaller stature. An unusual pick-up choice - the humbucker is a pretty generic humbucker tone that really overpowers the neck single coil, which to me and my preferences as a player is a fatal flaw.

For the poster above looking for a fender sound, I'm not sure this is the best choice for that. If you already had a strat or tele you liked and were looking to get something to compliment or contrast it, with funky styling and non-traditional feel, this duo-sonic would be good for that slot.

JMO of course!

So detailed, thanks! Will wait for regular fender deal.

I find it weird that the description and pics are of a maple fingerboard, but the product name and specs say pau ferro. Confused

For those willing to tinker and maybe want to explore some pickup swaps, this could be a nice platform. I'm thinking dual p90s!

Never tried it personally, but, I've heard good things.

That said, for this, I prefer maple, mostly for aesthetic reasons. Gonna call them tomorrow and, if it is actually maple, I'm in for one. Either way, we'd be getting a finish I can't seem to find another example of anywhere. Maybe need to verify that too (make sure it's not Daphne) laugh out loud

I have this guitar - it is excellent for the price. Super light, 24" scale, multitude of tones. It is so easy to play and has a nice grunge/punk vibe to it.
It is a steal for $360!!
