Interesting stuff. I hasn't seen the flamed maple versions of Monoprice guitars. They look nice.

I've had the Indio 66 DLX Quilted Maple in my cart for a couple weeks - it's been this price since at least then.

I'm hoping for a code that stacks with the 20% - the last couple I have tried did not.

I don't think any coupons will stack w/ this offer. I'm also assuming in the previous weeks, the guitars also didn't include free shipping (but now they do).

I'm not sure about the free shipping but that is a good point.

They dropped the amp I was watching as well by $10 but it is still $18 to ship.

These guitars have ZERO re-sale value.

You'd be better off with getting used Squier or Epiphone guitar. For $150-200 you can get really nice mid-range pre-owned model.

Agreed. Squier Bullet strats go on sale for $99 all the time. The Squier Affinity strats go for $150 too.

I've owned a few of Monoprice's guitars (still own one actually) and have found them to be "ok". the downsides being resale is close to $0 and they don't always have industry standard parts - you can't just buy a loaded pickguard for the cali models for instance.

I'd stick with a used name brand sourced locally.

These are fantastic guitars for the money. Compares to $500 models and pups/parts can be upgraded in the future if you choose to go that route. The base of the guitar is very good with no buzzing and surprisingly setup out of the box. So there's lots of longevity here.

As for the previous comments on resale value, this is a moot point, as any guitar brand will lose 50%+ out the door. Pricier Fenders and Gibsons hold their resale value the best but you'll STILL get HOSED with a 50% loss when reselling.

So buying a guitar at this price point, you're looking at a small affordable loss compared to buying a much more expensive model that'll devalue 50%+ when trying to sell it. You can still sell it to a kid on Craigslist and get some money out of it. Lets face it, it's less than two benjamins.....dissing these models over resale value is kind of silly. LOL.

This guy plays.
I have their J-bass and it is nice. I also own a cheap Squier Strat (50th anniversary edition), and it took some filing to stop the fret edges from cutting up my hand. I don't think you'll have that problem with these monoprice guitars. They are for players, not posers.

This is a great guitar for the money.

Yes, I'll probably add $200 Slash pickups into them that I already have. After that the value is insane. Still less than an Epiphone Les Paul and much better.

Get the Cali if you want to play Jon Mayer, Clapton type light distortion blues. 66 if you want heavier distortion and a thicker sound. Strat vs. Les Paul styles.

Monoprice honors the warranty too if the guitar is seriously flawed.
