Heh, is it time for this to come around again? I might keep a list of the times this has been posted.

Anyway, my $0.02 - this is a great bit if kit for a beginner, maybe even an intermediate. It does everything you need, you'll grow out of it, but it'll get you going very well. I got one about 9 months ago and have had great fun with it since. It was a bit depressing to find that I hadn't an ounce of natural talent, but I'm struggling through anyway.

I had lessons for a while, and the guy teaching me didn't think it was too bad, he tuned it up and ran up and down the frets with a few chords and it all sounded pretty good.

The only extra you'll need (as a beginner) is a tuner, but word of advice, don't rely on it, learn to relative tune ASAP :)

I got myself one of these a year or 2 ago when they weren't so populer, it's a good bit of kit for a beginner, The distortion on the amp is a bit over the top though. My one suggestion is that you buy new strings for it, I know it comes with spare strings but they're a bit tacky, once you have new strings, it's an absalute jaffa!

After 13 years of playing i must get round to that oneday :giggle:

so tempting. My mate got one of these a few months back and it sounded pretty good with a new set of stings...

Ordered mine thanks :thumbsup:

Looks exactly the same as one in Argos for 129.99 (only different colour / branding) :p : http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/5407316.htm

... guitar only no extras (65 quid). This site has a good 360 degree explore mode, and some sample mp3s played with the guitar ;-) ...

well mines on order. always wanted to learn to play guitar and was just about to by the argos equivalent.

And given my undoubted natural 'air' guitar ability, and greatness on the Xbox 360's rock star challenge, this will be a breeze........... hhmmmm... if only it were going to be that easy but hey ho something to annoy the neighbours with. :giggle:

I ordered the acoustic guitar and a bag in the happy hour with google checkout came to just under £29 can't be that bad :-D 4 guitars already so hopefully it will be okay :w00t:

Bit of a weird one but I am left handed, I am thinking about learning to play the guitar with my daughter. She needs an electro acoustic guitar so I have to source one of those too. But this will do as a starter for me.

Question: To play a guitar left handed is it just a case of reversing all the strings and away you go or is there more to it than that?

I wouldn't advice it as the 6th String (thick one) will probably ring horribly if everything is switched round due to that the guitar was designed for right handed guitarists. Also the scratch plate will be the wrong way around along with the jack input. Plus sometimes the neck is designed for holding it with the left hand so switching it around might be uncomfortable.

Sorry if it seems negative just don't want you spending nearly £50 without knowing the above :)

Not at all negative, thanks for your advice. Good job I didn't go for it then.:thumbsup:

Guess I will have to stick with my left handed air guitar, that's really good and sounds a treat. Left handed guitars are much more exspensive.:-(

Jimi Hendrix made it look so easy, thought I'd have a bash. How hard can it be.:whistling:

Thanks again

Cheapest left hand guitar I can find. For an extra 30 euros you can have amp, strip etc check it out.

They could be produced by the same manufacturer.... I dunno. However, as for them all having the same shape, it's because they're using the Fender Stratocaster shape.

As already mentioned, these guitars are good for people looking to start learning to play the guitar. Then, when you're getting better and looking for something a bit more solid, I'd recommend moving up to something like the Yamaha Pacifica which plays very nicely and can be had for £100 for the 012 model, or £125 for the 112.

For anyone that's looking to learn how to play, have a look at [url]www.guitarnoise.com[/url] for some lessons and songs that are easy to learn :)

I think this would be fine restrung for a leftie. You might have to modify it a little. The 'nut' the string guild thing at the tuning end of the neck might need to be tapped out and flipped so it fits the strings once restrung.

If you want to use it with a strap you might want to move the strap attachment to the other horn. Although I have seen plenty of people play left handed without moving it.

The lack of sractch plate isn't really an issue. You will sratch the guitar up in time but compared to the large dings you will put in it when you drop it/ let it fall over/ destroy it 'the who' style the scratches won't be a worry.

The lead thing is simple you bring the lead up the back of the guitar over the strap attachment (while using the strap) then down the front and in to the socket. That way when you accidentally step on the lead it doesn't yank the lead right out of the guitar.

The neck on a strat has a symetrical crosssection so it works fine left or right.

Plenty of guitarist have restrung right handed guitars to play them left handed. Hendrix for one.

Hope that helps

As it's a very cheap guitar I believe its a lot of effort to go through. Because it's cheap re stringing the guitar will mess up the bridge settings, it's happened to me before when I have tried it for a friend.

The bridge will be adjustable. I imagine the setup it arrives with won't be perfect.

If you are going to play the guitar it is a good idea to work out how to tune and adjust it. It is only a couple of lumps of wood screwed together with 6 peices of wire held at tension over a set of pickups, ultimately the setup of a guitar is down to personal preference. I am pretty sure there are plenty resources on the net to explain all the adjustments on a strat copy are for. This is a beginners guitar, an entry in at a low price point, if the leftie really took to it I would recommend buying a left handed guitar of a better quality later. Left handed guitars don't tend to come as cheaply as right handed ones.

A guitar is better than no guitar.

I'll give you one other option, well ok two. It is possible to play the right handed guitar left handed and not restring it...I have seen people play that way (self taught but it can be done), Option 2 learn to play right handed...it always struck me that left hand was the wrong hand to have on the fretboard in anycase (if you want to do fast runs) it will steepen your early learning curve and it is un-PC to suggest it but once your up and running it would be fine. Paul Simon for example is left handed but plays the guitar right handed. It will probably save you money in the long run and give you more choice in the future if you do.

I hope that helps, now you have more options than you could possibly want :giggle:

Does anyone know the difference between the KCC guitars and the "extra value" ~£45 guitars on ebuyer are?
http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/126346
#21
For anybody wanting to play it left handed, forget it.
The nut will be carved out for bigger and would need flipping.
The bridge will have been set with a specific curve for the different sized strings and will need setting up.
Worst of all will be the pickups. They're positioned expecting the correct strings in the holes. Playing it upside down added to Hendrix's sound.

For everybody else.
Don't relative tune. You'll sound horribly out of tune unless you've got a reference note.
Don't buy a tuner from Argos. They're garbage.

For this piece of kit I'd avoid. You really do get what you pay for with guitars. You really shouldn't ever buy one that you haven't held and tried out.
