I thought that maybe it would be good to ask u guys here before I made a choice. It sounds pretty good, and for a price like that, I might as well buy it. It costs $100, and another $60 for the shipping, so all in all it costs $160 (wow, some einstein math) and in euros, about €110. Here is the link:

I looked around, and liked this one. It doesn't sound like a bad buy. What do you guys think? It can't be too terrific looking at the price, but yeah whatever. Anyone that knows anything about an SX guitar, go ahead.

ohh fair enough, i see u got a fender strat (nice) how about a squier jagstang with a dimarzio super distortion for some kurt tones

I have the Vintage series bass, and assuming that the guitars are made with the same quality, i'd say go for it!

What do you expect for $100? It may be good or it may not be. I bought an sx guitar for $120 and the fretwork is a joke. I stoned the frets and got 'em even so when I lowered the action the bridge bottomed. The strings are still too high but that's it, can't go no lower.

I sold it for $60 to get rid of it. Maybe you'll be lucky but $60 for shipping? Whew!

dancesisidance and PanHead, u guyz have opposite opinions, so I'm kinda mixed here.....

My SX guitar had a shedload of tiny problems when I got it, which made it annoying to play. Have since fixed it up, but I'd definitely try before you buy.

thanx cultlife, just that I live in Frankfurt Germany, so I can't try it, gotta buy it or leave it, so that's why I'm asking for other opinions.

Omg! Vintage rule dont they! Good Quality for a pretty small price The bulid quality is a bit crappy though.

If you're looking for a cheap, but quality guitar, check out the Aria range.

I've been using them almost exclusively since I started playing guitar, they're brilliant for modding & arent too shabby stock.

I've used my refinished telecaster copy on a couple of youtube videos, if you want a sample of the stock sound (I've not touched the pickups)

As long as the Axe is made in CHina, dont buy. It sucks


Don't dismiss the China-made guitars as crap.

I've played a few China made guitars and some of them are actually really really really good. Some were on par with MIJ and MIK guitars. And the quality of guitars made in China are getting better and better as we speak.

TeenSPirit, I think dsubstanceuk is trying to sell you his Laney! I have no opinion on the SX as I have not played one. I have played some decent "made in china" guitars IMO. Good luck.

I got my friend to buy one of those when he started learning, like my tele, it's very much the lower-end Aria guitar, so the finish is quite plastic-ey, but it's still pretty solid and dependable. Sounds good as far as I remember.
