Ah, nice guitar. I haven't heard too much about Samicks but I've seen quite a few around the world. A Korean brand I think, most of their guitars are Les Paul/Strat/SG styled, but they have some unique twists to some of the guitars.
Ermmmm, I've seen a load of their guitars in Saudi Arabia, and they do some pretty nice acoustics too. I was 5 minutes late from buying one in a store

Congrats though

I picked up the Sammick "Greg Bennet" Malibu brand new on sale for $100.00. it is actually pretty decent for the $. The body is real wood and the neck is very nice to the touch. The only flaws are the bridge p/u is not powerful enough to make a solo stand out and I had to file down the edges of every fret on both sides of the neck which really wasn't too bad as I was expecting to have to replace all the electronics.
YA GOTTA HIT IT ON THE ONE

Samick is in fact one of the largest guitar manufacturers. It produces pianos as well. It's main focus is on the production of other brands of guitars such as washburn and Epiphone (I think)

It has two factories. One in indonesia and one in korea. Where's yours made?

I think your guitar is before 2000. Greg Bennet is the new name for samick after 2000 or 2001, not too sure which.

They are great guitars for the price.

I think ARS stands for Artist Series. If so, then it is an excellent piece of instrument. How much did you pay for?


BTW, the wood looks like mahogany to me.

I currently own a Greg Bennett Royale (signed by Greg himself) and a D-1 acoustic. For what they cost, they're amazingly nice guitars.
