Beautifully crafted. Found no imperfections or issues. Waiting for the guitar to warm up to house temperature before tuning her up & plugging her in. :)

Well shoot - I have bitten the Bullet.. or rather ordered one. The fun of having acquired all the great & rather expensive guitars that I've always wanted is being able to buy these inexpensive ones for the price of a pedal. I'm having a ball. Pictures when it gets here next week. Thanks jdgm! This is all your fault [razz]


That's the bad thing about these forums...there's always somebody helping you spend money!

I also love racing, especially motorcycles.

650cc on the track
800cc on the snow
1000cc on the street

More guitar than talent.

No - I bought the case elsewhere - it was $42 open box deal. All my gits go in cases - no matter how cheap the guitar.

By the way, I tuned it up earlier this evening & ran it thru my Roland JC-22 for about an hour. Very articulate, chimey & held tune like a much more expensive guitar. Feels great, plays great, sounds exceptional - awesome living room guitar I could have played for hours. Gotta run it thru a tube amp tomorrow & throw some gain on her to see how she howls.

It is amazing to me they can build this quality of a guitar for $149. I love this place. :)

Good stuff [thumbup]

I look forward to hearing more....

Also could be a nice easy project guitar if you fancy upgrading the pickups or something.

I still haven't gone to Andertons to try one yet.

But I will. Soon. Probably.

And if I like it so much I have to buy one......

It will be ALL YOUR FAULT. Yes, ALL YOUR FAULT.

BTW I went to the guitar show at the weekend to see Rabs...and I hesitated and missed a mega-deal; a guy had 4 Chinese LP copies, very nice too - Epi quality, on his stall and was knocking 'em out for £99 apiece.
They went quick, I could have had the best one if I'd jumped.. ](*,) ](*,)

lol You are right my friend. That explains why I couldn't find my reply to your post when I was looking at it earlier today. So I replied to your correct post. Sorry guys and thanks FZ for pointing it out.

It plays surprisingly well. And sounds killer. In my younger days a cheap guitar sounded like a cheap guitar. And yes I'm sure there are still plenty of those out there. But this isn't one of them. I've scored like 3 different Squiers in the past few months - having a ball [thumbup]

Nice! Are you going to do any mods to it? I've had a couple of Squier Telecaster's that were built pretty well. Don't have them anymore. One is long gone. Got rid of that one years ago. And the other one I gave to my older brother a couple of years ago. The one I gave to my older brother I put Fender locking tuners on it and some Fender Noiseless pickups in it. II do have a Fender ash tray vintage style Tele bridge with brass saddles that I was going to put on the one I gave my brother, but it didn't line up and you could still see the holes from the previous bridge, so I didn't bother putting it on the guitar. Still have the bridge laying around, though.
