Ok, so all I really know this is a Samick Strat copy, nothing special, but I have only found one guy with this guitar online:

My guitar is exactly like that except it's a cobalt blue (and has some noticeable wear and tear). I've had it for almost 2 years now. Honestly not that bad of a guitar (and I obtained it for free when it was in horrible condition).

What I want to know is does it have a specific model name or anything? Like could I find a page for it? I don't think I want to try to sell this, but I am curious on reading some background info. Thanks!

soory but it's just a starter pack guitar. probably made of basswood and is a dirt cheap guitar. nobody is going to do a page devoted to smething like that. if you like it great but don't count on finding any meaningful info.

I don't believe that model is made anymore. Samick hired Greg Bennett to come in and revamp their entire product line, and by all accounts he improved the sound and quality significantly. What used to be known as a simple Strat copy is now called the Malibu. The Malibu MB1, as currently produced, is probably the closest thing to your guitar. The biggest difference is that they went to a 3+3 headstock, which is an improvement in my book. Not traditional maybe, but I hate the 6 in-line tuner system. Here's a link to the Malibu off the Samick web site:

Maybe this will get you started anyway...

Well obviously, but I was just curious if there was like any official documentation of it out there. Just out of curiosity.

Yuck, definitely not.
The current Samick headstock is super-ugly on it's own, and even more-so on a Strat-style body.

Reminds me of my Samick Jazzmaster, which is also a fine guitar. The body on mine is ash. The stock P90s are as good as any I've ever heard. There's nothing crappy about it other than it doesn't say Fender or Gibson or whatever.

not trying to be offensive . figured you'd have already have checked the samick site. what i was getting at is that starter pack guitars rarely have specs given past the obvious. the companies usually don't mention that it's plywood and has crap electronics they just want to push the "hey you to can be a guitar hero" thing. once again if you like the guitar that is all tht really counts. often cheapie guitars play ok and sound acceptable for practice. i usually have one laying around as a beater guitar.
