Hi folks,

I'm old and disabled. I have played bass for over 30 years.
(never did get very good at it)

I have been setting up guitars for the old fart down at a
pawn shop so he will have something people can play when
they come in to look.

Well, I took a Silvertone Shredder home to set it up and to
do some soldering.

I played it after I got it set up and repaired.

This thing plays great. The humbucker has balls. There is one
setting that has a beautiful Fender like tone. The wiring is so
messed up I did not want to spend too much time on it because
it is just a $80 guitar new. The nut could stand to be changed.

Now, I'm having a problem.

I don't want to part with it.

Have any of you guys ever fell for a cheap plywood guitar just
because of the way it sounded and played?

What would you do?

















Thanks for lookin,

Tabdog

if you like it then keep it. my fav guitar isn't a high end one either (i do own much higher end guitars as well). sometimes a guitar just has "it" and those are keepers regardless of price.

Hi, I am looking for an amp setting close to the sound of bands like Black Veil Brides.

Thanks for the replies.

I am thinking that if I don't get this
guitar, I will always wish I had.

I can probably get it for a song. As
long as the old guy gets a few bucks
he'll let me have it.

I have ideas for fixin this one up.

It won't take much,

Yeah, that's an easy question. Anyone who would tell you to go buy brand XXX because it cost more is a moron. I'm glad none of them showed up!
