Great guitar for humble dosh.

Just bought one of these. Terrific.

I've had all sorts over the years but left them at home due to sore hands and my inability to play simple stuff. Anyway, here in Spain I noticed that my hands didn't hurt any more and so thoughtI'd try one of these. It is just amazingly good.

Bargain. Ive seen a few of those sub £100 guitars and generally they are shite but the reviews are good for that. Once you put them through a decent pedal board you can make anything sound great these days. I could do with a cheapo electric for the van, i dont really like bringing my Ibanez as its worth a few quid and I have a history of breaking them.

Give us a tune then!

Yeah a Telecaster lookalike, looks good. Always wanted a Tele, have issues with arthritis in fingers so just dream about it now.
Had great fun jamming with school chums in my teens before the joints gave up.
(That’s finger joints btw) :- )

Jeez Barry will be looking for a drummer now to form a Who tribute band .

Go for it lads. It's as good as lots of Teles I've played. At that price how can you go wrong.

Terry my fingers have improved living in Spain. I didn't notice anything till one day I just realised they weren't sore any more. I've got a pile of guitars at home but buying that was cheaper than having one sent over. Glad I didn't. Nothing I have at home is as good as this. It is just amazingly good.

You are always tempted to say good for the price. This isn't good for the price. It's good at any price. Go for it. Baz you need it just for the difference in tone.

Tempted. Whats the action like? Generally cheap guitars (well even not so cheap ones) need adjusting when you get them. Pal of mine bought a cheap fender package a couple of years ago in that ball park and it was totally shite.

What are you playing it through in the van?

The action is very good indeed. It needs to be for my out of practice fingers. I've never been interested in playing bad guitars. It's just too hard.

I bought a Vox AC2. It is very, very small. As I opened the box I thought "That's going back". But actually it's OK. I'll keep it. Though I may buy a bigger (proper?) amp too.

Alan, I checked it out - my husband is interested - but amazon say not delivering to mainland Spain (we are in Barcelona) Did you get it in U.K.?

No it wasn't on amazon.es. I got it on .co.uk. I have a brother who has a mail order business and ships loads of stuff all over the world using UPS. I get stuff sent to his warehouse and he has it sent on for me. Paying their rates it's not too expensive, £20 or so for my guitar.
