I'm looking to buy my daughter her first guitar. She's 6 1/2. I've looked at the child's & 3/4 guitars, and played some, and as near I can tell, they're all crap. I feel like I would not want to...

Question about how frets get worn, when is it too much?

I recently acquired an acoustic guitar made in 1979. I love everything about it, except for the frets. They are the shallowest I can recall seeing, and I've had guitars 40+ years old before. If I...

I'm not sure you have to rule out Agile. Even if there is high shipping for a new one, you might find a used one locally for sale.

Fender Strat is so different from Les Paul, I think it's kind of odd that you have both on your list. If you are on the fence as to what tone you want, then I'd say you probably should go with...

+1 for Agile, I have one of their Les Paul copies (AL-3100M), and it's amazing. Not sure what their guitars with tremolos are like, though.

Problem with posts/anchors for floating tremolo system.
