I need a cheap guitar. Cheap, but playable. I can upgrade as needed.

Personally, I'd recommend saving for a really nice guitar that doesn't need modification rather than getting a cheap guitar that is going to require a strip-down and replacement of most things.

I probably should have posted the backstory. I'm really indecisive and I've been looking for a cheap guitar for a while. I wouldn't need another guitar for any reason, but I'm going to Japan in November with the school jazz band, and I don't trust airlines with anything I already own.

...You don't trust them with a $100 Squier? If you're going to buy a guitar just for Japan, buy an Edwards once you get to Japan, much higher quality, no airline in the first place, and you bring an awesome souvenir back home. If you don't have the cash, then I'd still recommend buying one in Japan, but just be sure to try it extensively first.

It's a squire bullet special. I don't trust the squier with jazz.

Fair enough. Then yeah, I'd wait until you get to Japan; They have some very nice copies that can't be mass-marketed in the US because of companies holding the US copyrights and patents, you'll find something much nicer than an SX methinks.

I'd have to talk to my band teacher about it. There's the off chance we can't find a shop or a decent guitar in my price range in the shop.

Well, is $150 your max pricerange? Because if you're willing to spend some more, you may be able to, with email and phone calls, convince the Japanese shop to sned someone to the hotel with the guitar and you just give them a check or the money or something. If not though, then the SX will probably do as long as you replace the runers.

It's probably somewhere around two fifty. But if it's anything like america, there will be a big jump from below to over my range within decent quality standards.

I suggest you buy one there, guitars have better quality and are much cheaper, even if they are copies from a unknown brand. And I wouldn't get one with a floyd rose..

I was actually looking at the AL2000 in that finish. Just not with the slim neck. Also, I was looking online and edwards guitars are all listed at around 1000USD. O.o
