A couple of months ago i bought a zennox guitar for £40 with an amp off a friend, she doesnt play guitar. It looked really nice when i got it so i thought it would play well too, but theres a wiry and sometimes a dead sound to the notes, and half the time it sounds like it does when you don't actually plug it in. I would not recommend them

I think there is a pretty good reason that you got for £40

Some stagg v thing, the neck warped very very quickly.

My Mum bought my little brother one of those guitars withe the amps built in, thats sounded just like it would if the amp wasnt plugged in. The necks made of some weird plywood or something and the inlays are painted on.

uhh.. probably my epiphone les paul junior plywood thing. but it's not all that bad - apart from tuning problems and the generally cheap tone (which does have its uses!), it's quite nice - the neck profile is very nice and the fretwork is pretty good considering - it plays really well.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

jackson soloist and jackson fusion ex both crappy build quality loose necks,

the nut fell off the soloist and the electrics on the ex , not doing a rewire of any new guitar so got my money back on both these pieces of junk...

I almost bought a Stagg Tom Delonge copy guitar. I wanted it for the body mostly since Fender doesnt make Graffiti Yellow Strats anymore. I was going to get a new neck, electonics and totally revamp the entire thing. Luckily my friend stopped me :P

I played this guitar once. It unleashed the ****ing fury and I got kicked out of Guitar Center.

A Kona Strat, but it isn't too bad. I'm sure if I just lowered that action and put some new pickups in it, it'd sound decent enough, but it sounds damp and, well, bleh now. I don't buy guitars all that much, so that's the worst.

My acoustic is probably the worst guitar I own, but I still wouldn't call it bad

I've played worse guitars that went for higher prices and overall I'm happy with it

It was so much worse than my starcaster. Good thing I got rid of that thing. I think the guy who took it liked it, but I hated it. Cheap LTD's suck ass.

I don't buy bad guitars... so the worst one I ever bought would have to be an '80s Ibanez. My 1982 Ibanez Destroyer II DT400 modded with a FR and locking nut is probably the worst guitar I bought.... Amidoinitrite?

PRS Tremonti SE I had. Was absolutely awful for the price. I found it had horrible tonal characteristics
#26
Ibanez.. something or other. RG321MH? I think it's name was something like that. Utterly terrible in every posisble way, literally not one single redeeming thing about it.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

Johnson strat for $90 the plays beautifully with 9's and horribly with 10's. It's g string is super buzzy no matter what though. And it's pickups, while decent, certainly aren't high quality.

some off brand mini acoustic guitar my older sister bought me when I was like six and wanted to get lessons. It was a 50 dollar piece of crud that completely turned me off playing guitar for 3 - 4 years. Until my dad took me to a guitar store and I learned not all guitars sound that bad. I think it was made of plywood. I know I was six but damn thats just pathetic.

Probably the Jackson KE3 Kelly. I just couldn't keep that thing in tune and it felt like hell to play on. I preferred my first ever electric which was a £150 Ibanez starter pack model (at the time) and now I think it's discontinued. Wouldn't surprise me.

the worst i've ever bought was an Ibanez Art series. i actually really like the tones and the playability of this thing, but it literally won't stay in tune long enough for me to unplug it from the tuner and play something. it goes flat that quickly.
I've got the spirit, but lose the feeling.
#38
I'd have to say my fourth guitar, A Global Instruments acoustic. I paid $10 for it. The guitar not only sounds dead and has a fret popping out but the original strings were digging into the wood from the tension! Perhaps it was stored in a damp place or is made out of bad wood, Or both.
Always tin your strings.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
