Hi mate

I have one.
Here are my experiences, I've played it at home and gigged it (twice see negatives)

Weight balance, mine is way neck heavy and gigging it is impossible

Zero fret, clicks like mad when I bend the G string, drives me mad

You need a bespoke rig, it is nowhere near as powerful in terms of output as my strat, my PRS or any of my Suhrs, so the rig needs to be matched to the guitar.

Tuning stability is good
You can get the Brian May sound
Versatile in terms of sounds but see above
Build quality is good for a £500 guitar, finish on frets is ok.

I got mine as a 40 th birthday present otherwise I would have sold it.

Hope that helps
