Depends on your definition of cheap
GIM Student model. US$550
Ashton AP-1000. US$200-ish
SX Explorer with Gibson pickups out of a Les Paul Classic in it.
SX Flying V
Both about US$190 or thereabouts.
Damn fine collection there Grap. How do the Explorer and V play and sound? I could use a couple of those.
$75 at a pawn shop.
They play fine, but the original pickups are quite weak and the machine heads are not that good. I have 13-58 strings on the Explorer tuned down to drop-C and they're barely hanging in there with that sort of tension. WIth the Gibson pickups in it the Explorer is a real screamer.
I find it bizzare that out of all the models of Flying V over the years they chose to copy something obscure like a V 90
Less than $300.00 used at the big box store.
$400 pick ups drop in set from Langcaster
Together incredible tone on a great playing axe!
My $15 swap Meet Teisco. I added a couple of Razor P-90s with new on/off switches and a Jazzmaster tailpiece with a roller bridge, I made a new green pickguard to accomodate the P-90s based on the old brushed aluminum guard.
299$ "blowout" new korean model AR250
What the heck's that P-90 doing in the über-eighties superstrat? Cool!
Nothing like a good cheap Harmony guitar through tweed.
Not a Strat, but a crappy Yamaha I rescued from the trashcan and rebuilt. I call it my Garbagecaster.
Here is a page on my website I did on it.
Here are before and after pics:
Nice rescue operation there, mate!
A cool geetar with a great story behind it!
Dude, where can I get pne of those Ashton AP-1000`s? Sweet!! Here is my Dean Chech Premium EVO, maybe a cheap price, but very high on quality Jack
Man I haven't seen one of those for 35 years! I clocked a lot of time on one of those at my best friend's house in 8th grade! It was his dad's, but we always had it. Didn't play too bad, either.
100 bucks at Geetar Center.
SX Les Paul copy - Free(gift) + $250 in upgrades
