thats gonna be my next guitar and was just wondering how good the the quality is etc. I know its cheap but it felt amazing when i played it - as if it was made for me, i just want to know if that quality is cheap or if it will last for long.

ps. if its REALLY bad then i can choose a different guitar but i will make a new thread for that if i need too, for now i want to know about the quality!

You've played it? You liked it? Buy it then. Its your opinion, and yours alone, that matters.

If it feels good and plays nicely in your hands and it has a tone that is satisfying to you then you shouldn't care what other people think of it.

It'll be cheaply made, and not amazing quality, but if you like it, go for it!

Quality of Vintage is superb. I have the Vintage Les Paul, have played the SG, and one of the strats.

They are all of high build quality, ****ing sturdy. My LP has been dropped so many times. Even fell half way down the stairs once.

Still ****ing perfect.
Vintage > all.

Never played a bad Vintage, owned a v100 LP for 2 years and love it. Buy it, as you said, it felt good for you, so buy it.

Vintage is decent quality for the price you pay. As long as you look after it, there's no real reason why it should fall apart after 5 months. Be more positive mate!

And don't worry about whether it lasts a long time or whatever, buying a guitar should be a joyous occasion, no matter what your buying.

I played two other Vintages at a local store a month or so ago (LP and Tele copies) and they were built well, couldn't see any major flaws. The tonewoods are on the same level as on equally priced Hagstroms or mid-range Epiphones.
All in all, a good instrument considering the price. And if you liked it so much, just go for it.

the string breaking might not have to do with your guitar, try keeping the strings clean, probably palm mute a lot? i used to break them a lot too, then i just started cleaning the strings once in a while (shammy cloth or w/e) and they last a lot longer

nope, the ferrules behind the nut are sharp and snap them but anyway, thanks for the replies....hopefully this will motivate me to play guitar more but for now....to get £80!

I played a Vintage flying V a while ago and I have to say, it was damn nice for the money. The feel and general quality was great for a guitar under £200.
