A couple of my students bought these.

I was expecting junk, but the other reviewers on Harmony Central and random blogs were right: This is a good beginner's guitar. Shorter by an inch to comparable Strat clones, but it's manufactured well, good intonation, filed correctly, tuners hold well.


Can recommend.

Great price. Just know that this has a 42 mm nut width which is pretty standard on low price strats but if you've got big hands or you like the feel of a les paul . . . this could be tight.

If it weren't for that one thing I'd buy one in a heartbeat

I've been learning on one of these for a few months now, the guitar certainly hasn't given me any complaints.

This is a good deal. Minimal setup needed. I changed the strings and lowered the action with a little trust rod adjustment. Great student guitar and the parents will be happy with the minimal price.

I bought one used for $100 from a local music stores years ago. Great deal for a beginner's guitar.

I am new to guitar and thinking of getting this one and learn it on my own. Is it good or bad to learn guitar by using the electric vs normal one?

I recently started learning guitar and did some research on this, and I've come to the conclusion that it's a personal preference based on whatever you're more interested in. The only difference I've read is that electrics are easier to play (less pressure needed on the strings), so transitioning from acoustic to electric is easier then going electric to acoustic, the only legit point I see brought up when people say learn acoustic first, but I think that's pretty minor.

How heavy is it? I'm thinking of picking up one for my 9 year old daughter so I can start to teach her.

Depends on what you want to do and if you want to use an amp. You'll get more flexibility in what you can play but at the very least you'll need to get an amp as well. If you get the right kind of amp you can basically make it sound like anything you want but good (or even just ok) amps aren't cheap. If you want to play rock, shred or lead style guitar you'll want an electric.

On the other hand, with an acoustic guitar you basically just get the one sound but you can just pick up and play anytime anywhere. Personally, I think it's easier for beginners to get good sound out of an acoustic but you can learn on anything. If you want to play folk, rhythm, classical, flamenco, or fingerstyle you'll want to go acoustic.

Ultimately, if you actually decide to play you'll end up with at least one of each.

So can anybody recommend any good resources for beginners? Or in my case semi-intermediate - I've played since I was a kid, but strictly self-taught, mostly strumming along to tabs. In the last few years I've hardly even picked up a guitar. I've been thinking recently about getting back into it and learning properly.
