I found some quite nice custom guitars on ebay going at a reasonable price


these guitars can be found here


They're shipped from thailand and look pretty nice but i have no clue what they'd be like to play and what they'd sound like does anyone have any experience of "sams musical instrument workshop"?

Cheers

Those look pretty sexy.

You should probably be prepared to swap out the pickups. Other than that it seems pretty sweet though.

If you do buy it, let me know how it plays, that seems like a nice find.

Wouldn't trust it as far as I could throw it. However, it has got quite alot of positive feedback so you never know.

I really wouldn't buy it. You'd be spending $500 ($600+ if you include shipping) on a guitar you have never played, or ever heard of before. Better to go with a guitar you know you like, rather than spend that much and hope for the best.

i would never spend 600 dollars on something that I haven't played, especially if they dont have some kind of return policy

look at this link before you buy a chinese guitar from ebay, nice inlays dont make a good guitar, good construction makes a good guitar.


Thats also a review on an acoustic which is a WHOLE different thing when making guitars.

If it is a decent guitar, then he is most likely putting some insurance on it and it can be very expensive, especially when shipping overseas because of customs and all of the other shit.

I suppose thats what i kind of expected - the reviews pretty much sum it up that the guitars look nice but play fairly poorly

I was kinda hoping someone here would actually have one - but i think i've been convinced enought not to buy one

cheers guys
