lol not really. i wanted to have something to toy with after i got off vacation, so i dropped a whopping 99 dollars on htis little ditty.
Also, what is up with all the new gear day posts without any pics or details? getting really annoying. i saw a thread yesterday that didn't even say what they got.








I had to do a normal setup. Adjusted the truss rod, wedged the neck ever so slightly, and raised the Bridge. Still need to intonate it but i think i will wait until i change the strings...

also, i have a little clip of it on my profile. SI13>DL-4>JCM800>2x12 w/ V30s> SM57>logic pro with a hint of reverb.

I usually hate strats and most things about them because they are over-copied, but I really like this one. White with silver hardware is simply delicious.

I'll give you $110? ;]

Yea....I agree.


I was looking at his gear and was thinking the same thing you were.

to be honest, i really like the sound of the single coils. the bridge bucker is a little thin and trebly. maybe ill replace is with a warmer bucker.

The tuners do the job just fine, everything else on the guitar is pretty solid.
#10
I like it. I like the fact that it has a humbucker and a floating trem....and it looks very very nice.

Only way to make it better would be if it had 24 frets.

When I saw the guitar I was thinking "Oh god damn, this fender looks awesome, but if probably cost him his left testicle"

then I saw the headstock, realised it was about 99$ and creamed my pants.

I am soooo getting this bitch next month

HNGD!

I would replace the bridge bucker with either a JB like I have in mine if you want heavier, or if you want more single coil sounds, my friend bought a seymour duncan, forgot the name, but it works as a nice warm bucker, then coil splits, and sounds like a single coil. If you give me a little I will get the name for you, unless someone on here knows what its called.

So do they sell this guitar in America for $99.00?

I bought a Samick strat copy about 10 years ago here in the states, but the quality was no where near as nice as this guitar.
#21
That's pretty sweet =]

I bought an AXL Marquee last year for $100AUD when a local guitar shop was closing, best $100 I ever spent, with some minor adjustment, a setup and some new strings it made a great rehearsal guitar, and while I have several other guitars to use as backups, I still play it when I stay at my parents house when I'm on holidays from uni. I think I played every rehearsal and practice gig for my HSC with it.

I think. I'm probably gonna order one today. I need a guitar to mod the hell out of.. and a white guitar at that.

HNGD. Looks great

I was thinking the same exact thing.

Was pondering buy a White Squire to mod the crap out of but this guitar would be much better.

nice, is the quality good though? Seems very suspect for $99

I just like the look of a FR on a strat copy.

It's in my cart and I'm deciding if I should order it or not. I need a beater guitar badly

Damn, this will be the first guitar that I bought "new" since 04-05ish I believe. Cool stuff

only get it if you know how to setup a guitar. if not, you will have to give it to a tech and have them set it up for you before it will play well.

other than that, i really like mine.


Cool, that's all I needed to know. Disregard my comment on your page. Thanks.

I would go with a Pearly Gates rather than a JB but whatever floats your boat.

Still, that's mighty fine for $99. That "Douglas" on the headstock just bothers the hell out of me. It's so...plain, while the rest of the guitar is flashy and awesome.

Regardless, it's a solid purchase for 100 bucks and after modding it, you two will certainly make beautiful music together. HNGD bro.

I thought it was a cheap used strat copy you bought.

The I saw the Floyd and though 'WTF is this?'.
