Great Beginner guitar for $89

I bought this off Focus about 8-9 months ago for $79 and I chose it over the monoprice guitars. I would definitely buy it again at this price especially with Amazon selling it.

Guitar is good for Rocksmith.
  • Sculpted Alder body with bolt on Maple neck
  • Three single coil pickups
  • Grover tuners

The pictures show two different guitars, one strat copy and one tele copy.

Decent deal for an alder body and grover tuners. The 3x3 headstock looks weird on these.

the MB1 is the strat copy. not sure why there is a tele copy picture from amazon.

yeah the headstock is not the traditional headstock for strats.. but I came to accept it as giving it a little uniqueness.

I wouldn't expect much more than a beginners guitar from this, but Samick IS highly regarded for making some very nice cheap guitars.

If you're in the market for a Strat style guitar, I seriously doubt you can do better at this price. Grover tuners are solid and usually not available on such cheap guitars too.

Grover heads make it a better deal

Would you guys say this is better than a Squire?

Cost Ratio. I would say its better than a Squire. The Grover tuners alone cost about half the guitar.

From my experience, I would say the places where they shaved some dollars were the pickups (not great but not horrible). The Alder body is actually more traditionally Fender than the wood that squire uses.
