Summary: I've had a few guitars and the Yamahas that I've had have all been built to a fantastic quality. The ERG came my way extremely cheap, I was only hoping to get a good neck to fit to another guitar. I wasn't expecting it to be as good as it was as I knew this was a budget guitar. However, the feel of this guitar completely belies it's price, excellent action and playability. I had an even bigger shock when I plugged it in, it has really good tone as well.
