Description:
All hail the mighty humbucker! When you want that rich, heavy, crunch sound made famous by artists such as Jimmy Page, Slash, Pete Townshend, and Bob Marley, you want a Route 66 Vintage Solid Body Guitar with two humbucker pickups from Monoprice!

This full-sized, 22-fret guitar features a basswood archtop single-cutaway body, a bolt-on maple neck, a rosewood fingerboard , and chrome machine heads/tuning pegs. It uses two dual-coil humbuckers, which produce the distinctive sound used in southern rock, heavy metal, electric blues, reggae, and classic hard rock. A three-position switch on the body above the fingerboard allows you to easily select between the bridge and neck pups, or both together.

Before it gets shipped to you, each Monoprice guitar undergoes a setup, tuning, and inspection process by Master Luthier Roger Gresco here in Southern California. The setup ensures that the neck is straight, the action is right, and that it will stay in tune. Additionally, it comes with everything you need to get started, including strings (installed), a heavy-duty zippered black gig bag with shoulder strap, a truss-rod wrench, and a pick.

Yes. 30 day money back guarantee. No restocking fee. I believe you'll have to pay for shipping back. The one defective item I had from them (a mouse), I didn't have to pay for the shipping to ship the item back. At $99-$130 new, do you really expect a resell value on the guitar?

I've been meaning to try one of these. The "Route 66" model is probably a better deal because Les Paul clones aren't often found in this price range, while there are any number of decent Strat clones under $100. From what I've heard, these are really pretty good. The biggest complaint, by far, is that they say "Monoprice" on them. But at least that doesn't effect the quality, only your pride.

Lol. I don't think it'll have a resell value unless the guitar enthusiast websites online start declaring that it has value.

It's happened before. A Yamaha beginner dreadnought guitar I purchased in 2002 for $100 new now costs $400 used. It had nothing to do with Yamaha raising the price, and had everything to do with guitar enthusiasts praising it's craftsmanship while Yamaha stopped making that model.

The price point finally made me jump on it. I would have preferred a sunburst, but at $99 it was an impulse buy for me. I'm a beginner and I figured it would pair with Rocksmith better than my Epiphone aj-15e acoustic or the gimmicky iAxe365 my brother bought me.

Good choice, your going to love it. I'm a music tutor and have a student that has it. Surprised the hell out of me. It's a knock off built right.

It should be better for sure. It might be easier to play as well because it's a 24.75" scale length guitar, like a Les Paul, which means less string tension (it makes fingering chords and bending strings easier).

If you ask me, the black looks better than the sunburst. The honeyburst looks nice, though.

Thinking of getting my first electric guitar. What's the difference in sound or playing? What does each do better? I just want something that's all round I guess.

Yeah everyone who has tried out my epiphone comments on how high the action is. I think it makes it really hard on the bar chords not to have fret buzz. I'm excited because monoprice is actually near me. Next day shipping was only $5 so it should hit my hands Tuesday.

Anybody else hoping this isn't the beginning of Monoprice's slow descent into a massive repository for trinkets and junk?

I'm not saying the guitars are junk, just that Monoprice does what they do so well (in my opinion) that I'd hate to see them lose focus on their core and expand/stretch themselves too far. Electric and (soon to be) acoustic guitars? Seems outta left field to me. . .

just bought the strat black one. Getting back into playing and this seemed a no-brainer. Also used overnight shipping for 5 bucks, thanks!
