    I am loving so many of the designs and sounds of the new and different guitars ProGuitarShop seem to be stocking.. as well as the price!

    Check it out: http://proguitarshop.com/guitars.html

    Question is.... are they truly any good? I love Andy's demos.. but I've had experience in the past on buying based on a good youtube clip, only to find the guitar sux arse, cant stay in tune, feels funny, or crackles and pops...

    Anyone had any experience with the Schecters, Hansons, Echos or Airlines?

    Sure do like the look of this Schecter!

    its not echo's. its eko, and they are good, same as dipinto, and k-line, and hanson, and schecter, and hagstrom, and airline, and reverend.


    proguitarshop is frugal in what they deal for a reason.

    when you say frugal, do you mean they choose brands that are great quality for the money, or that they're going for the easy money?

    great quality for the money.

    trust me, they don't make easy money on at least 3 of these brands.
    1. would be fender, its a bitch to be a fender dealer now.



    edit: if i were to recommend any guitar, i would recommend hanson. yes, like with all sub 1k guitars you may need to get it set up to your liking, but that will happen even on 3k guitars.

    LOTS of nice-looking guitars there. I really dig the Burns guitars.

    I like the way they spec those Guitars out with certain pickups etc. and the Demos sound pretty convincing.

    There was a "Fusion Strat" I think or something they had with a beefier tone- and it really did- so I was impressed but just Video-did not hear it live.

    I could seriously dig on some of those Reverends. Especially the Sensei HB!

    I do not have any further affiliation with PGS.

    As a rather new Reverend fanatic, I can say that all of them that I have played were fantastic and I own 4 of the old style ones. New and old have some of the best stock setups that I've ever played. (Most of the original owners of my old Revs say they never changed them when I ask who did their setups)

    I like that these guitars aren't all copies of Fenders and Gibsons I mean no doubt some are pretty close but a lot of them are companies doing their own thing
