Actually no, it's not anyone's guess. -Considering that it has a bit of
trouble staying in tune, and most of the hardware on it is relatively low
quality, -to me at least, that impacts the general quality of the
instrument, which, incidentally, IS, a strat copy, according to the
line-6 rep. -or at least the model that he'd demoed with some of the
employees at the store where I teach, was. This is why I'm concerned.
-With issues like that, the modeling just doesn't justify spending that
kind of money to me. -That's all... -just my opinion, and perhaps they
will, or have already upgraded the guitar. -It's certainly possible.
I'll still try one for myself...
