    I own 2 of them and they rock!!!! They were 2 of the best playing guitars in Guitar Center. The only drwback is the color scheme... but I can live with that

    I've played a couple. The necks are a little thin for my hands, but they sound great. I want to get one for my daughter eventually.

    I got one of their Wildwood acoustics for my daughter. The fit, finish, and setup was spectactular for the price. It was $159 plus shipping and I didn't have to do anything but tune it up and hand it over. I'm impressed.

    Anything that gets more young women playing rock or guitar music is a good thing.

    ...i'm a little ambivalent about the idea of guitars for girls, although my older daughter loves the daisy rock line. i'd like to buy one for her, perhaps next year's birthday - she'll be 30.

    however, i really like the new gibson goddess series - not for her, but for me!

    +1 on that.

    +1 on the Gibson Goddess and Vixen series if it gives them a option to move up.

    I think they gave Gibson a kick in the marketing dept

    My 11 year old daughter turned her nose up at the Daisy Rocks we saw at GC.

    Instead she wanted to get a Red Squire Tele...talk about twang for the buck. :D

    I think any guy (wether he's talented or not) that has the stones to play a daisy rock guitar deserves a lot of respect.

    What can I say? She preferred the Metallic Red Tele. $169 After I gave it a cursory set up it played and continues to play great. Besides there's nuttin' wrong with a Squier, ask Chuck Prophet:RoCkIn

    I'm just sayin'


    I personally liked the Daisy Rock 12 string they had, but I have a 12 string alreay and almost never play it so....

    Glad you are enjoying yours.

    My Mojo Jojo guitar from Cartoon Network is made by Daisy Rock.

    Very nice guitar for the price IMO. If the rest of their guitars are as good or better, I don't think you could go wrong with a Daisy Rock.

    Check out this Flying V knockoff:

    Some of their guitars, I look at them and say, with a different color, that'd be pretty cool...

    check these out:

    http://daisyrock.com/products/rockcandy/rc_custom.htm

    see "blue shimmer":

    http://daisyrock.com/products/rockcandy/rc_special.htm

    they really are nice guitars.

    the necks are a little narrow... but they play very well.

    and I paid just over $200 for each of mine... they're both set necks, have tapped pick ups, nice fret jobs, etc...

    check 'em out next time you go to a gutiar store.. and keep inmind, if you hate the color you can always refinish it! :)

    I thought buying another one of the rock candy guitar to refinish and detuine :eek:

    but I hve way too many guitars

    I got one as a joke for the last night of a tour I did last year, made one of the guys play it for the last song.

    Great little guitar, played and sounded very good for the price. Built like a tank too, the poor guy tried to smash it at the end of the song, hardly put a scratch on it, looked ridiculous in front of 10,000 people!

    Here's a clip, apologies for the sound.

    I help a friend to buy one for her daughter and the guitar was very nice made, played good and nice color, the neck mas in good condition and the frets were easy on the hands, I think for the money they have a great value.comparing to other guitars in the same price range they were better.
