I have a friend who has one. His 2 kids pooled their tickets and got one at "Dave & Busters" (I think) for him for father's day10 years or so ago. It was not as bad as expected. He gigged with it numerous times (to make them feel good). He is a phenomenal player by the way so he can make anything sound good. I found it to play a bit better than I expected. The pick-ups were low output. Had to really turn up the amp quite a bit. For $40.00 I would say that's a fair price, especially considering it probably cost his kids about $2-300.00 in tokens to win one
