so ive been gasing for a strat for the longest time now, recently, i aqquired a 100 dollar gift card for amazon, and i saw this

http://www.amazon.com/SST-Electric-Guitar-Vintage-White/dp/B001HT3BEU/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=musical-instruments&qid=1230247444&sr=1-2

the specs look great, the alder body is enough to make me want it because i can use it as a project guitar.

the problem is, it just seems too good to be true, its less than my squire (which is made out of agathis ) im afraid its going to fall apart when i get it or something,

i dont expect it to be as good as a fender stratocaster but just good enough to play clean songs and hendrix tunes, my mom is going to think im wasting my money on this, but the beuty of having a gift card is i can order it without her knowing and hide it or something.

Nope, its not too good to be true. They sell those at Rondo Music at the same price. I've never played one, but I'm sure it would be good for a project.

"solid Alder (not plywood) body "

I kinda laughed when I saw that.

Anyway,it doesn't look half bad,not a name brand so there isn't that extra cash thrown in for the name on the headstock.I'd do some research on them and play test one if I were you.

the problem is that they keep comparing it to starter guitars so im afraid its going to be as bad as a starter guitar, but everyone else says otherwise

Buy from Rondomusic instead, that way, if you don't like it, the owner will take it back and give you a complete refund.

I tried it out in store.

Great neck, nice n light, good tuning stability. Overall a good guitar. I didn't but it cause I generally only buy guitars over a grand now.
