I bought this during the last sale and returned. Guitar didn't stay in tune and the nut had assignment issues which I didn't bother to fix or set up. Overall built quality was ok but I save a few more$$ and get a used Mitchell or ibanez. They are bang for the buck

I like cheap guitars like this, I can always blame them for my horrible playing and sounds.

I have a sunburst version of this guitar and it has held up exceptionally well, stays in tune well, and took very little setup on my end to make it play like a much more expensive instrument. I've purchased a few Indio guitars and basses to use as extra instruments for band practice so the rest of the group doesn't have to lug instruments to my studio for practice if they don't feel like it and they are all more than passable for our purposes.

With a little bit of setup following a couple youtube videos you can get these playing very nicely. They typically just need a few screws turned.

I have an indio tele and a strat that I've been really happy with. The tele was damn near perfect out of the, while the tele took a bit of set up but it plays fine esp for the 60 bucks I spent on it. I've never had a LP style guitar and I'm in for one at this price. I'm running out of hiding places for these cheap guitars.

These guitars are hit or miss. Mostly miss.
I've ordered a few Indigo guitars from Monoprice and only once did I get a unit that played well with minimal setup. Some have had loose hardware with stripped threads, bad tuners, broken nut, and one with a severely warped neck.
All have been returned except two. The one that set up easily I kept. One with a broken nut I held on to as Monoprice promised to get me a new nut, but never delivered on the promise. When I later told them that since they didn't send the nut I wanted to return the guitar they refused the return. Crappy business practices.
That said, IF you get a good one it's a deal. Just be sure to check the guitar out throughly when you get it and return in a timely manner if necessary. Do not believe any promises they make regarding parts, etc.

I have this guitar and love it. I love the people complaining about a 130 dollar guitar. Give me a break. It's a great guitar for the price. Most of naysayers sound like Gibson shills. Not even the 30 dollar guitar I bought for my daughter gets out of tune... How do you suppose a guitar like this does? The spiral tuner doesn't magically slip. Literally this problem has been solved for decades.

One thing that I was surprised by was how much it weighs! It fell off the wall the first night so make sure you are in studs or solid anchors.

This is a really good deal and price for this style. Get it. Return it if you don't like it. Or you can sell it for more than this.

Why are people saying it's so cheap? My Strat was half of this. LOL. This is double priced to me!. Wink You big spenders.

Lol I've was in the same boat. This is my third and most expensive Indio guitar. It came in today. And the set up is pretty dang spot on. No sharp frets or anything and the fit and finish feels like a much nicer guitar that the 130 I paid. I couldn't be much happier with this impulse buy

Congrats! Awesome deal for LP type. They are heavy. Try a SG. But it's a steal and a real slick deal.

It says discontinued now. So good job catching it.

Haha.
i actually bit and ordered a gold top Indio 66 DLX PLUS.
I opened up the box and at first glance the guitar seemed beautiful. Much nicer than I expected. I picked it and noticed how the frets were dressed nicely and the finish was really pretty. As I put the guitar in my lap and slid my hand down the neck I felt something very disturbing. The neck was cracked near the headstock.

A friend had also ordered one, and he received it a few days after the one I ordered arrived. The neck was cracked on his too, in almost the exact same place, ..on the headstock side of the scarf joint.

Monoprice/Indio has discontinued the model, so neither of us will be getting replacements. But, even if they could be replaced, with two cracked necks/headstocks I'm not sure that I'd trust the guitar not suffer a catastrophic neck failure.

It's a shame, as they seemed a steal for the money if they weren't defective.

Sorry to hear that.
I have two Mono guitars and they were both good out of the box (no set-up needed).
Original Gibson Les Pauls are infamous for cracks at the head because of the tilt. I guess the knockoffs can have same issue. I bought the Strat and Tele knockoffs.
I have a Epiphone Les Paul that I got from a slickdeal for $300.
That's probably the best way to go for that model.
They are usually $500 and highly praised for construction
