Contrary to popular belief, electric guitars are an instrument that requires you to master two very different things. One is, of course, the playing technique, but the other is utilizing the hardware of that guitar and that of the amplifier in order to dial in a great tone.
It has 22 frets (jumbo), Agathis body, rosewood fretboard and a very comfortable and thin maple neck, Sturdy pickguard; it’s in the style of a Strat guitars. It has a Vintage tremolo bridge (with a tremolo arm), Passive electronics with H/S/S, Volume and 1 tone knobs; and 5-way selector Switch. The good quality Humbucker is really good for the price it which gives it a heavier- great meaty sound for anything from punk to metal edge. On top of the Humbucker, there are 2 single coil pickups which provide a great sound for reggae and a five way selector ensures that these sounds can be achieved, making this guitar an all-rounder in style which is brilliant for beginners. This guitar is available in gloss finish and comes with a wrench to adjust truss rod and bridge. This nifty Strat style guitar is a great way to start off on electric guitar.
Rock, hard rock, Indie, metal, stoner/heavy metal, a bit of grunge and punk; Pacifica is good for this. The Humbucker can give a really nice crunchy tone. You can get different sounds from the guitar just by changing the pickups (Using 5-way selector Switch). The guitar can manage pretty much everything you throw at it.
It's best for cleaner rock or jazz, but it's versatile enough to play anything. It sounds amazingly solid with a lively hum in distortion/over-drive effect, especially with the single coils.

- Great Quality Intro Guitar
This guitar will last a beginner into intermediate stages before they start to feel a need for specific woods or features, etc. It's a little simpler than a strat (only 2 knobs vs 3), but plays like actual strat. Even the tremolo is still more stable than other low end guitars (not heading out of tune as easy). It's kind of a simple, no frills model, but really done well. This is definitely worth the extra few bucks, you'll be glad you went with it. A great guitar to learn and grow on.
