Impulse buy!! It was just sitting there in all its purple glory with a price Tag of $169 used and I had to try it out........Got him down it $150.00 Ca$h ................less money than I paid for my last Overdrive pedal..........and I took it home. It needed just a little TLC and I gotta tell you.........this has to be one of the best bargains out there in the guitar industry. I'm not even a Heavy Rock player..........mostly classic Rock and Blues.......and I like it ten times better that the Dano I used to own for around the same price. I don't even see any major changes ............I'm just gonna enjoy it for all its Cheapo goodness. really a great little guitar.............Anyone check one of these out? :dude

i picked one up cheap...125 floor model. I wish it was solid black I have the..the fotoflame is just cheesy.

But it plays surprisingly well for a cheap guitar

I have one that I bought for the kids to bang on instead of my guitars; it really is a fine guitar for the money.

Exactly my next train of thought! My son is reaching that "age" rapidly. Hopefully the pretty purple will attract him quicker that some old faded sunburst!! :rolleyes:

I picked up a black one for $150 a couple weeks ago from MF or one of those guys. It's a great little guitar. I got it to save my nicer ones from gig abuse - four guitars knocked off their stands in the last couple of months! It doesn't even need a pickup change. The intonation was way off, and the action was pretty high. I dremeled off the bottoms of the height adjustment screws since they were way too long. And now it's a nice little player. I got it where I like it, so I'll try it out live this weekend.

Moe aren't those Pick ups great!!? I've bought American made guitars that didn't have as good a sounding set in them!

I still have a little high spot on the 13th fret on the B string but I'm afriad to **** with it anymore .......I'm starting to think the Nut might be cut to low on just the B string. I'm not going to obsess about it though..........If my $2000 Anderson had a bad nut I'd be pissed but for $150............I'm just amazed!! :dude

I tend to recommend these to new players wanting their first electric. Good price/performance ratio. :dude

Definitely, OldSchool - I had played a couple in the stores, so I knew the build quality was pretty good, but I expected to have to change the electronics. I was really surprised when I plugged it in, though. Great sound, versatile, good with cleans, great with drive. First gig with it tonight, and I'm sure it will do just fine.

In fact, I haven't even bothered to pop off the electronics cavity cover yet. If I'm lucky, they'll even be four wire pickups so I can do the Petrucci wiring. I'm not holding my breath, though...
