anyone else play VINEYARD guitars?

Vineyard is a small company owned by Praiseland Music and makes high quality inexpensive guitars. yes they are made overseas but are assembled and inspected in the US. i play one of their strat copies and have been very pleased with it. they sound and feel better than a MIM strat and can be had for half of what those currently go for. the fingerboard has a wider radius than Fenders which i personally prefer. it has the old style 6 screw trem but stays in tune remarkably well unless you go totally nuts with it. unlike most low end guitars the stock pickups are actually fairly decent. they also make real mahogany versions of Les Pauls and SGs. i used the strat to record all of the guitar parts for Lifeforce (found in my profile) just figured i'd see if anyone else here uses tem and give them a little press as i like their guitars.

They just look like a bunch of copy cat guitars, actually it just looks to be like another Agile except with a website.

Not really like rondomusic is more of an outlet that specialises in stocking Agile gear. And vineyard have a proper website like with details of models and some fancy flash and **** and not just a place to sell guitars.

Well, they do look respecatable, but if I were going to go with an off-brand SG or Les Paul I would deffinately go with Agile. These guitars look good, but a BASSWOOD sg? Come on now, that is like opposite of what an sg should be. Basswood is dull and thick, SG are supposed to be cutting and sharp.

Basswood is cutting and sharp; mahogany is dull and thick...

Rondomusic is owned by Kurt, the guy who made the brand Agile. That's why you'll only find them on Rondomusic.

i agree that baswood isn't the first choice for LPs or SGs if you looked at the new arrivals section you'd see that they have mahogany versions. the basswood ones are being discomtinued according to our local dealer.

yeah i'm giving them a little advertising space if you like, i think they make really nice guitars for the price and aren't well known. i don't work for them i'm just a satified customer. i saw no threads on them so i made one big deal.

they do for the most part make copies but so what there is a demand for decent quality but lower priced guitars. i played their new LP copy and its nice. my dealer is charging $499 for them which is cheaper than an Epi. these have an actual maple cap with flamed maple which is cool for the money.

Geez guys just presenting another optioni didn't expect such a negtive response.
