Anyone heard of S101?

I'm just wondering if anyone has heard of the brand S101, I was looking at one of their Les Paul models on ebay. Any help or advice would be nice.

My first guitar was an S101 EGJ24. It wasn't horrible, but even if you have a semi-decent guitar already I wouldn't see the point in buying one, even if you planned to upgrade it.

Go for it man. If it's a good price, you don't have alot to lose. If it sucks, upgrade it.

My thoughts exactly. +1

I would never buy a guitar I've never played, let alone never heard of, online.

I agree... look up reviews or something. They usually help in purchasing equipment.

It's a really small Chinese company that makes cheap entry level guitars. You're not going to get many personal reviews here seeing as they aren't well known or widely sold in the least bit. I've never talked to anyone else who's owned one aside from me. It's at best an okay guitar to start with.

where i live there is a music store (cd`s and dvd`s) that sells the s101 series guitars and amps. and i`ll have to say the lp copies are beautiful to look at, especially the lp goddess. i personally havent played one plugged in but a friend of mine bought 2 of them a goddess, and a standard. he loves them,says they are as good as an epi. and they only cost 240.00 i thought about buying one, but the seller didnt have any information on them, i wasnt sure if they were even mahogany. im kinda glad somebody made this thread so i can get a little info on them.

i played one unplugged at a music store (cd's dvd's) but it was set up horribly, basically unplayable. For a cheaper les paul go with something with a good reputation like an agile. I have an al 3500 and its a damn good guitar

I have an S101 SG style guitar. Horrible thing. It certainly plays like $150.
