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.

Any trick to getting shipping down?

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.
Did you do the surrounds and the in-wall subwoofer too?

Funny Story: I kept trying to get my girlfriend to play Rock Band with me, we had a 2nd guitar and a mic, but she would often refuse. After a particularly bad day she had at work, I asked and she snapped back 'why don't you stop playing that stupid game and get a real guitar'. She returned from work the following day to strange sounds. She glanced at me & my new guitar with a puzzled look on her face....then proclaimed "I really should be more careful about what I say to you "

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.
My sentiments exactly. I've purchased much more than cables from them over the years...including headphones, hdmi splitters, camera bags, various electronic devices, etc., and have always been quite satisfied with the price / quality. Paired with amazing customer service, it's hard to pass on some of their deals.

Thanks OP....grabbed a black one, but looks like a very decent & capable LP copy for $99, don't expect miracles from it, but the reviews were quite favorable considering the price point. Something inexpensive to try my hand at playing once again.

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.
It depends the shape of guitar, feel, and the sound you want to play. I listed the guitar models they are based off of and general features. Go to a guitar shop and see which type sounds/feels better to you.

Route 66 = Les Paul, guitar neck behinds backwards towards you, heavier weight, none to less electrical noise when played through amp, great for rock - like this B'z [youtube.com]

California = Stratocaster, straight neck, lighter weight, wood cutout on back of guitar for stomach, more electrial noise when played through amp(depends on settings), great for cleaner sounds - like this David Gilmour [youtube.com]

Still trying to decide if I should get this...

What is interesting is that the non-black LP models all have a newer version that is slightly more expensive (the old ones are all out of stock). This made me think the newer version is maybe better and they are just closing out the older model in the last color available.

But, if you look at the new vs. old versions on the other models you see that the TREBLE/RHYTHM label on the pickup switch and the pick guard are missing from the newer model.

hhhmmmmm....

In my experience, the first runs of guitars coming out of China and Korea are always better than second, third, etc. runs. I tend to believe the same for these at Monoprice given the reviews I've read for the guitars on Monoprice.com.

Yeah, I've been wondering the same thing...

http://www.monoprice.com/products...1&format=2

Here's what they say about the new models...

So what do you do if you have a successful product launch, like we've had with our Route 66 Vintage Solid Body Guitars? Well, if you're Monoprice you listen to customer feedback, make improvements, and release a new version that addresses those concerns. Enter the new Route 66 Modern Solid Body Electric Guitar from Monoprice!

The most obvious change is that we've eliminated the plastic pick guard and the plastic label around the pickup select switch. This allows you to see all of the beautiful finish of your choice, without being obscured by the plastic bits. In a bid to modern styling, we've sharpened the horn below the cutaway, giving an "edgier" look to the guitar body.

One of the standard complaints about the Vintage version was the quality of the strings. Not only have we increased the gauge from 0.009 to 0.010 inch on the lower E string, but we are now using our coated strings, for increased durability as well as sonic excellence.

Finally, we adjusted the orientation of the volume and tone knobs. The entire knob assembly was rotated 90° counterclockwise so that the orientation of the knobs corresponds to the orientation and location of the pickups. So the neck pickup, which is on your left when wearing the guitar, is controlled by the leftmost knobs, while the bridge pickup (on the right) is controlled by the rightmost knobs.

The rest of the guitar remains the same as the Route 66 Vintage model. It is a full-sized, 22-fret guitar with 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, and a truss-rod wrench.

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 Gretsch Americana Guitars that were on SD from Overstock clearanced for about $30. They can be easily sold for $250- $300.

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.
On the other hand... it is kind of funny. Gig with one of these. Shred the Christ out of it. Next thing you know, people are looking for Monoprice guitars.
