This is the Epiphone's special to Qatar. I think aesthetically it's a pretty cool looking instrument. Give it high marks in that area. Unfortunately, it's really the only area in which I can give it any marks whatsoever. OK here's why under no circumstances should you buy this thing. That's where the amp goes, broke off a couple of months after I had it. Spend the extra money and get it. Get a real guitar not this toy.
