I mean really cheap--like $400 to $500. I've purged all my 'bucking guitars following a bout of broke-ass-itis. Still not in a position to buy back stuff of the same quality as the stuff I sold. I don't really care if your recommendations cop "British Humbucking-Equipped Stars of the '70s" tones, as I seem to ruin any such attempt with my own wacky style, anyway. I lean a little more toward the bright side, play primarily through a Hayseed 30 and am really more of a tele player anyway. Not twangy tele--filthy, gritty, reedy tele. But I dig a good 'bucker now and again. So, cheap thrills or should I just stuff the piggy bank until I can afford greatness?
