I took delivery of my new MK Patriot Black yesterday. Musicalbits got the guitar to me in 3 working days.

The guitar itself is great. Very well finished with a solid feel. Great sound.

I am delighted with this deal.
I took delivery of my patriot black this morning and its a thing of beauty. Not only does it look fantastic but the quality of it is frankly extraordinary. The guitar i had did not have a fleck of paint out of line. its just a quality black slab of beauty.

I have not had the opportunity of plugging it in yet but spent some time before work playing it unplugged. It sounded very good - surprising loud (a bit like playing an acoustic really).

The action was the best out of any guitar i have owned or even played. the fret board was super smooth and it was certainly easier to play that any other guitar i have owned.

as you can tell i am very impressed with my purchase especially taking into account the low price of the guitar.
If you have previous experience of a guitar and know what your getting then fair enough. My Point was that for those in the dark it would make more sense to buy something they could try out first.

I'm in Glasgow this Sunday so might try to get in to give one a try - I'm no in the market for one but I'm intrigued now!

I think saying the Gretsch is a "better guitar" was a bad choice of words. As you say I've not tried the MK so wouldn't know - I think the Gretsch is a safer choice though ;-)

When I was looking in to buying my last guitar I did try a Classic Player, a Baja actually, and they are brilliant guitars with the wiring config and pickups. I've managed to pretty much make a customer tele that fits my exact needs for the same price though, as I'm not paying extra for anything that I didn't need to start out.
A P90 in a tele is pyoor heaven and any sound I got from the other guitars I tried before buying came no place near my tele now.

In my experience I've found that reviews will give a general indication of quality but nothing more. When someone shells out hundreds for a guitar they'll end up convincing them self it's great because it hurts too much to just stick their hand up and say it was a bad choice.

Play, play, play is the best advice ever. Go to a shop and play the ones you like and the ones you don't like. Play the really really dear ones then play the cheapest piece of **** they have - the more you play the better idea you'll have of what suites you as a player.

I wouldn't buy this as it's not a name I know of or know anyone else who knows of it and I can't play it to see how it feels and sounds. I'm not voting either though, BTW.

I've just recently spent £320 on a Mex Fender Tele Standard. Replaced the tuners, took out the neck pickup and put an esquire style pickguard on. Whipped out the bridge pickup and stuck in a P90 then rewired the controls to a volume and used wiring from a DIY pedal kit to stick in a basic overdrive effect and wired the selector switch drop the OD in and out. It's probably cost me £450/£500 but it've been told buy others borrowing it's superior to similar USA teles.

Before that I was using an Epi Les Paul Customer with Gibson humbuckers - no idea what the pickups were but it was a special run with different pickups pre installed. Cost me £400 and served me for about 6 years. It's battered to hell and covered in paint and stickers and beer and blood and sweat but it's the only guitar I use for recording!

IMO this is a better guitar, even though it's a cheaper option:

I hear what your saying and it is good advice, the only reason i made this post is that i already own a Michael Kelly that i bought from a shop so was able to play before buying i was so impressed that i took the gamble to buy online which paid off and saved myself 130 quid :)
The next time your over in Glasow check out Merchant City Music where i bought my first MK the Valor X and get ready to eat your words.
In the past i have owned Amrican made guitars LP and Strats and im not going to say this has the finish of either of them but its sound thats important and for not a lot of cash these babys sing. Don't think i'm some sort of MK fanboy as i also own 2 fenders which i love but this was a deal and mate once you play one you'll know what im talking about.
Oh and by the way how can you recommend one guitar over another when you freely admit you have never heard a MK???? and another thing you should have bought a classic player and saved some money cause mines ****** over the american fender i own ;-)
