lol on ebay i found these cheap guitars for like 99.99 but i'm not even sure if it's like durable or anything because it looks awesome for such a cheap price... I don't think its part of a brand

What do you think?

I wouldn't trust it. Specially since they found pictures of the guitar online, rather than uploading one they took of it.

Good for shits and giggles and the occasional lighting on fire, anything else and it's a lost cause.

Might be worth it if you want a project guitar.

Ok, i don't have a guitar and much money, I'm probably gonna get a job during the summer, should I buy this guitar to last me until i get a job? which may take from like couple of months until a year? I have like 150$

keep saving, it will pay off since (a) you shouldn't outgrow it as such, (b) will have some resale value.

if you want to go cheap and good make sure the thing is made of decent wood; it's really fundamental.

I quite like Danelectro guitars and you can get them for a great price (they're inexpensive but not cheap, if you know what i mean).

i also keep forgetting to mention that I don't have a guitar and I want one I haven't played in several months and i'm kinda a beginner

A les paul has a thicker body and neck so it will give a better sustain. Some people say it can be hard to play some of those higher frets, but after a while they get easy hit. The one you have listed has volume and tone controls for both pick-ups so I bet you can get a lot of nice sounds out of it.
I have never played a "v" though.

eDit: if were you I would try to save a little more money and get something a little better than a $90 guitar.

but I don't have a guitar at the moment and I'm still like a half beginner I can play chords and shit but cant solo for my life. So I think i need a new practice guitar for a lil bit until I settle with a job im 16 and i want money

So I still shouldnt buy it?
#15
Well... Do you know if you like playing guitar? Or is this kind of like an experiment to see if you enjoy playing?
If you don;t know if you like playing guitar, then I would go for the les paul copy. Only because that floating bridge on the V is going to give you nothing but trouble.
But if you know that you like to play, Save up more money and get an Ibanez RG321mh. Best guitar for the price IMO. $300. I sold mine and it is my biggest regret in my guitar playing career. Thinkin about getting another one day.

I love playing guitar even though i not that good yet, but I can't get 350 dollars soon it'd take me ages to get that kind of money
#17
I can't say whether they are good or bad for the money. Guitars like that you need to try first. I stick with guitars I have had some experience with. Rondo Music has some decent inexpensive guitar by SX, Douglas and Agile. I have enough confidence in Rondo that I could order a guitar thru them and basically know it will be decent. I have been very surprised at some of the less expensive brands like Jay Turser, Raven West, Stellar, Dillion and Xavier. All good felling quality instruments with decent pups.

This man speaks the truth!

I wouldn't go with a random ebay knockoff you could get burned. There are plenty of companies that offer nice guitars for not so much money. My favorites are anything from Rondomusic.com, Douglas, Agile, and SX. I have a SX les paul junior and it cost me about 120 bucks used and it rocks. I've made a few mods to upgrade a bit but the guitar stock is not bad at all, usable for sure.

Here you want a good guitar for cheap, check this out

EDIT: I would caution against a V as a first guitar, they are hard to sit with. You have to put the fins in between your legs and output jack could cause the the cable to dig into your leg. I think you should start with something like a Les Paul

Good choice man. Grab one of those Douglas Shadows and get it setup by a tech at music store and I bet you'll keep that guitar for a long time. Some of the guys over at agile guitar forum love Douglas. One more question what kind of amp are you planning on getting?

Thanks, I actually tried this model out a few weeks ago.

http://www.rondomusic.com/octaniswh.html

It was used and upgraded with a set of Guitar Fetish pups and Fender tuners it sounded great and felt very good but I had to pass because I showed up at the guys house several minutes before some young kid did and he really wanted the guitar. I couldn't break the kids heart the look on his face when the guy said well John got here first was just sad. His mom couldn't thank me enough. The kid was pretty good I'm an old school guitarist this kid could shred like a pro and he was like 11. It was a great deal for $80.00 and I hope the kid enjoys it.

For metal on a budget look at the Roland Micro Cube or any other Cube series, you'll love the R-ifier channel, hot and heavy for sure!

Javori- the guitar comes assembled, so don't freak out. A set up is a series of adjustments you make to the guitar's mechanical parts to help you feel more comfortable with the guitar. Such things as string height, neck bow, etc, etc. If you don't know to do this you should take it to a professional guitar tech at a guitar shop, it'll cost ya like 40 bucks but it's well worth it for a good set up, it could make or break your playing. So save up some cash for the setup or beg your parents, tell them it's important to the guitar, it's like maintenance.
Good Luck!

OHHHH ok!! thanks for all the help

There are some good cheap guitars out there. If you find out about a decent forgotten brand you may be able to get a decent guitar for under $200. Then again, It may just end up being a project guitar. That isn't bad though if you're into it... And I am. I'm going to buy a lot of cheap guitars to practice on.
Always tin your strings.

Don't be afraid to be honest.

Javori when you get the guitar take it to a tech and tell him you are a beginner and need a low action setup and some new strings. Trust me factory strings suck! Most of the time they come rusty already not what you want!
