Pros: +
If you like "sounds" this is a great guitar for enjotment. Particularly good are the acoustic and the revo settings on the scoustic with plenty of slp-back reverb.

Cons: -
If you are a guitar purist - do not buy this! This is a quirky ahead (or aopart0 from the rest of the field. Not for you.
