That is a sweet deal. I have one of the gold tops and was amazed at what I received (for somewhere around $100 at that time as well). Don't expect a Gibson, but really, these are nice bolt-on Les Paul style guitars. I did have to do some adjustments with the nut (pretty typical for many new guitars), but I almost felt like I owed someone more money when I opened the box and took this thing out.

I said the same thing about these Monoprice guitars and also feel like I owe more money! These guitars have the weight and feel of a real Les Paul. I currently own two LP style and one Fender Stratocaster style. The sound is really good too, in my opinion. They play really clean without much buzz from the other strings like you normally get with low-cost guitars. The sustain on the LPs are great also.

I have always wanted to try one of these out, but I can't justify buying another guitar when I can't really even play the 5 I already have. lol

I will keep this short since so many Monoprice deals keep popping up and going frontpage (almost as if they are paying their way to the top).

I bought two monoprice guitars. Both sucked. I had to pay shipping both ways and it was really expensive. Their service sucked. The paint jobs on guitars were atrocious and the sound muffled. Lots of frett buzz too.

Now I say: "Friends Don't Let Friends - Buy Monoprice Guitars."

I'm not doubting you, but I've had/have Gibson's that sucked too and they cost 10-15 times as much as this thing. I also have a $99 EPI Special that doesn't suck, plays well, stays in tune and sounds good.

Totally agree. My favorite guitar is a BC Rich that was around 100 bucks. It sounds and plays just how I want. What I am getting at is Monoprice made me pay to ship a bad guitar back and it was $60. Then, the replacement, which they kindly shipped to me, had a variety of issues and trust me, I was NOT expecting it to be more than it was. But it was unplayable. Ok, so I got a lemon and other people here can say that their Mono guitar is nice. That's cool, but you better pray yours is nice because I had to ship the second one back on my own dime too! The customer service reps both times were not easy to work with and it made me wonder what kind of a place Monoprice is. It felt way more fly-by-night than I ever experienced or dreamed it could be when I was buying cables left and right from them. So, I stopped buying cables and I started telling people that their guitars are not nearly as good, IMHO, as some others out there.
As for what I would suggest instead, I believe in buying once and buying right. I just posted a Made in Mexico Fender Strat that could give many years of excellence to a player. Granted, it is 5 times the price. I say, if you think you may enjoy guitar, get something like the MM Strat on a great buy. You could Craigslist it for around what you paid. If you are just trying out guitar, why not get on Craigslist and just buy a Squire or similar for $50 to $75? Then, when you know what you like, buy a Monoprice guitar? Just know this: You won't buy a Monoprice guitar at that point. So why start with one?
Thanks for listening.

But no matter what I say, this is going frontpage. Peace.

If you have enjoyed your guitar from them, then please know I am not throwin' shade at you. I just don't like the company based on my two experiences trying to own one of their guitars. In your case, you should stay loyal and buy more from them. That is totally understandable.

Definitely sucks ronproctor has been turned off of monoprice. I'm a guitar noob but I can tell you the paint job on the 3 monoprice guitars I've gotten has been perfect. The seafoam green Arrowhead Vee (discontinued model) , the vintage sunburst Route 66, and the lightning black California Classic all arrived with no serious issues and all looking perfect. Had a few people who actually know how to play guitar check them out and all said they were way better quality than price paid and only complaint so far is the Route 66 not staying in tune long (half of which I think is my first attempt at a restring of non locking tuners)

I know what you are all saying about these.. But I would get an inexpensive Korean made guitar to start with.

I had a black Route 66 and a California Classic. I thought about keeping one and repainting it and putting in ne pickups, but that was only because I had to pay so much to ship back to those jerks at Monoprice. Ah well, water under the bridge now. But cutting my losses and buying a medium grade Fender Tele was the best thing in the end. I was able to enjoy playing and I attribute that to keeping my interest in playing. I do t disagree with people who own and love these. As long as they are happy and playing. That's what matters! If I were you, I would go to Musicians Friend or World Music Supply and buy a cheap Castle Rock or an ESP. I only say those models because they will be in your price range. The key is to buy from those types of companies though who stand by their products.

I had actually considered buying one of these and sending it off to a Luthier in Florida who used to offer sweet mods on these...

He said that he no longer recommends them as they've become very hit or miss.

Actually glad. I ended up getting an Epiphone Tommy Thayer White Lightning Les Paul. It's beautiful and plays like it should cost $1500.

I bought a Ebony Gibson '50s Tribute LP too and the Lightning is better in every way and was cheaper and came with case and strap.

Got an Epi Tony Iommi SG thats amazing too.

My Epi LP Traditional Pro for $299 is the lowest LP I can definitely recommend.
