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.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

Monoprice cables suck too. At least the 6 micro USB ones I ordered from there that all broke within weeks of using them.

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. . .
Actually, Monoprice seems to have always been a company focused on "let's find a product that is popular, find a Chinese supplier that can make the best version at an affordable price -- not just the cheapest possible -- and sell just one or two of that item." They haven't just been about cables for a long time.

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.
Great. I live as far away from Monoprice as is possible while still being a part of the continental US, so shipping is both expensive and slow, but I don't mind given how cheap most things are. Any electric should have lower action (and thinner strings) than an acoustic, so I think you'll be happy.

Exactly. And many of the products have been very good, like the drawing tablets, the 27-30" IPS monitors, TV wall mounts, earphones. Their new photography line is also promising:

I have the large camera bag and it's as good as anything you can find for the price. I'd also try the large-diaphragm condenser mic if I didn't have one already:

How does this compare to the Rock Band squier? That's the only electric guitar I have and I never use it with the game any more. I've read that the RB Squier isn't so great as a regular guitar.

For a beginner guitar, I'm sure it is extraordinary. You won't beat the price. You can easily spend $99 on a First Act guitar at Toys R Us, and it's just that -- a toy.

I personally am not a fan of bolt-on necks, die cast tuners, or basswood bodies. Also, I think it would've been better to leave the headstock completely blank instead of putting MONOPRICE across it, but that's just me. They might as well have put MADEINCHINA across the headstock.

However, for a beginner, this is probably a heck of a guitar for the money.

Yeah, I have a set and am very happy with them. Not they're not crazy high end or mind blowing, but definitely worth 2-3x's their price.

My builder already put in in-wall speakers and the Monoprice were a huge improvement.

Looks a great deal on a really good starter guitar. Debating now if I want to upgrade from the cheap Den guitar I don't play????
