incredibly cheap - might be okay to learn on. wonder if anyone has one which they can comment on - is the action easy to adjust? what is the tone like? pick-ups any good?
#2
I was trying to find info on whether or not it's a full-size (I doubt) or if it's a 3/4 size. Methinks it's a 3/4 size, so please keep note of that before you impulse buy this item.
#3
it's full size
#4
if it has 22 frets it will be full size!!

a half decent set of pickups cost more than this guitar, so the tone wont be great at all, and with cheap machine heads be warned you'll need to retune it every time you play
#5
a fair selection of Colours (inc pink and blue) and shapes (flying V) and the blue one has free delivery (as does the pink with amp)
#6

it's full size


Crikey! What a bargain! That gets my hot vote!

I brought one of these a few months ago. For my son to learn on.

For the money they are pretty good. Obviously they are not as good quality as a Squire, for example the machine heads are not so good . But it is perfectly playable, and sounds pretty good, considering the price.

Does it include that stero cable or string for the guitar.?

I've been playing for around 20yrs, and advise people that you really do get what you pay for. A guitar like this really isn't worth buying....as stated before all parts will be cheap and nasty, and will be horrible to try and play....mega high action, fret buzz and lousy intonation is guaranteed. Even for someone who is wanting to learn from scratch you would be better to get a better guitar second hand from ebay.
#10
great bargain,

a fender stratocaster for £36 pounds including the amp. sounds like a good deal to me wonder if the amp has got reverb on it sounds to good to be true will be getting on of these today...

I'm in two minds about this as a bargain. Yes its undoubtedly cheap, but unless its for a kid you know will trash the thing after a while or you are living hand to mouth why not buy a good starter guitar second hand like a Yamaha Pacifica. If at any point you dont wanna play guitar anymore you can simply sell the guitar for what you paid for it. Buying a cheapo guitar brand new is going to lose its resale value far more than a decent starter guitar bought second hand.

If I was buying a guitar for someone to start out with I'd get on ebay and I'd buy something like a Yamaha Pacifica, and for the amp I'd probably get a Line 6 Pocket Pod which has a built in tuner and sounds amazing for the money, both of which can be had for around £100 total if you get good prices.

I echo these sentiments.

It's not a fender guitar, it'll most likely be an Encore seconds. Encore guitars that pass quality control are close to unplayable.
The pick ups will be poor quality and the amp close to useless.

If you want to learn to play cheaply get a set including a Yamaha Pacifica. It you don't like it, you can sell it on without losing too much. I doubt many would buy these second hand once they've seen it.

It worries me people think a 'Squier' is a 'good quality' instrument.

I repair these all the time, the only good thing about them is that i get paid (usually over 50% of the cost of the guitar) to make the things playable due to the poor materials they are made of.

for £36 dont expect much more than firewood.

Agreed. I've found with musical instruments especially that the way to get a decent one is to think of how much seems reasonable, then double it; so if £100 for a guitar seems reasonable to you, you should be spending £200.

I second that, while it's a good price you are getting what you pay for.
Would make a good first guitar if you're thinking about learning I guess.

the guitar in question isn't a squire and the fact is that not all parents can afford to drop £500+ on a "decent" guitar for their child to turn around two days later and go back to the xbox! 36 quid in this case is a great and low risk way of putting the feelers out, if they take it up enthusiastically, get them a decent one straight away and whack this on ebay, probably get more than what you paid for it!

But take me for example..i've wanted to learn Guitar for a good fair few years, but never spent the money on one because I've got a feeling i'll probably suck, and give up soon after starting..this way, I can get one, try and learn..if i dont get board, ive spend f all, and got a decent ornament!

Yes! Good point, well made:thumbsup:

Every time this sort of deal comes up there's always someone dribbling on about "having played for 20 years and this is a rubbish guitar.":p

FFS, Clapton started on a cheap and nasty acoustic as did most of his peers. If you've got the enthusiasm, you'll make a go of whatever you've got and thus provide the rationale to invest in a better instrument.

However, if you're just an old wanabee rocker with zero talent, these are great fun to bash around with after a few beers;-)

First post here, been lurking...

I was jolted into posting after reading comments about these guitars from people who have never held one.

Sure, these are not the best quality you can buy, but they are equivalent to something probably around £80 more than this. I know 2 people who have them. The quality for £36 is great, the finish is very nicely lacquered.

For a beginner who might not otherwise dip into the hobby, this surely is a great option?

They are great fun and perfect to learn on. Bargain (although a year ago, for the same price you got more in the kit, pics, bag, etc.).

Just my opinion.

changged my mind think i will go for a gibson as they seem better quality. fenders are more for the heavy metal person i am more of a jazz music guy. can't believe ebuyer are selling fenders and gibdons so cheap normall these are about £300......

Your jokes arent that funny :thumbsup:

I bought one of these for my son to test his staying power to see whether it was going to be worth investing in a more expensive one, I have to say for £30 it's outstanding value and he loves it. The action can be adjusted to a reasonable height without any discernable fret buzz and it has a genuinely well made feel to it. (for a sub £100 instrument)

I play a '62 Fender Telecaster myself and wouldn't try and compare the build quality or sound of the two for a second, but then the prices of the two aren't comparable either.

For anyone interested in dipping their toe into attempting becoming the next Hendrix, I'd highly recommend one of these, if you're still playing it in 6 months, then you can upgrade, if not then it won't have been a horrendously expensive flash in the pan......

Eh....HELLO!!!!!!!!!

I too have been playing in excess of twenty years. Come on guys, think back to what we had available when we started. Woolworth Top Twentys and Kay Les Pauls and those horrible planks that almost resembled guitars. These can't be compared to those and this entire set is about a third of the price we would have paid for just the guitar.

These guitars are made the same way ALL strats are made i.e. a CNC machine churns them out to a preset "Str*t" programme. Where your extra dosh goes is on better tuners and hardware/pickups but essentially these guitars are fine for seeing if you wanna be a Rock God without breaking the bank.

Well I have a Squier (paid £99 3 years ago) and a Mexican Fender Start (paid £400 6 years ago).
I love the Squier I dont love the Strat!
The Squier plays better, the frets and action are both smoother and the sound is better.
They can now be bought for £79 - I would much prefer 4 or 5 of them to a Mexican Strat!
#29
if your serious about getting a good start on guitar then previous recommendation of a pacifica is a good one, to an extent you get what you pay for - though often your paying for mainly the brand more then you are the materials used.

One of the guitars i play the most is a cheap yamaha acoustic, as it gets bashed about and its fine. the main thing is about action at this level is that most beginners dont even get that far down the neck, they just learn their first chords from 0 - 5th frets. maybe then if things progress then an upgrade may help later on. i would be more concerned as to if it holds it tune for a beginner as most start out with tuning as a mystery and if it continually loses it then what theyre practicing wont sound very good and they may not get the same sense of satisfaction from it.

there is no guarantee that every pricey guitar will be great, ive played some real dogs - admittedly mainly due to owners that dont know how to set a guitar up

i got one of my previous wives an escort - she was very happy but then the boot lock went a bit funny and they woudn't repair under warranty - said it was "wear and tear". not impressed.

I agree with you on this.
I was saying to my mate the other day how useless the cheap guitars were years ago, totally unplayable. But this thing really does sound and play OK. As I said earlier, only the machine heads let it down a bit. But it is still good enough for someone to decide if they want to get a ‘real’ guitar later on.
#33
I bought one of these last year when they were unbranded (they come from China) & with a 10w amp. For a learner you can not go wrong.
#34
OK so as most of us know, the adage "you get what you pay for" applies, often however, what we are all trying to do on this forum is beat the odds and get MORE than we paid for.

This is unlikely to be a top package, however the real question is, can the price/value proposition be beaten by an alternative offer somewhere else? If not, this is a HOT deal.

I learnt on a dog of a guitar that cost far more (and that was too many years ago to try and count). I would have loved to have been able to get into playing at this price. As has been said, if the person playing likes and wants to continue then "will it do" to start or will it put someone off. If they don't take it further, have you lost much?

The reviews by those that HAVE actually tried this guitar say it is better than it's price and will do. Enough said!
#35
been playing guitar for a while. I started on a really cheap acoustic guitar and I have no regrets. Im now playing a fender strat. HOWEVER, be warned that the cheap guitar will most likely break within a year, and that there really will be issues with string tuning and other problems. For one thing, I have a feeling that the tuning on higher frets will not be great and playing solos may not sound great. For a beginner, tuning a guitar is quite tough. If you want a taster of what playing electric guitar is all about, this isnt a bad deal. But if I were a parent, I'd probably get a squire strat for around £100 which is a reasonable quality instrument and can last for many years.
#36
You guys are funny - don't you realise that to buy a cheapo guitar to learn on will be the end of you bothering to learn. To some degree a purist might say that high action will help harden your fingers but I can tell you from experience it is more likely to put you off playing for good!

That's why most guitarists will advise you to buy the best you can afford for your first - you will reap the benefits immediately and later.
Don't let price be the determining factor.

.. Obviously they are not as good quality as a Squire...

I'm not doubting that this guitar is good value for money but find your comment rather funny as Squier are a "budget" brand in themselves..

Cheaper than guitar hero :whistling:

In an ideal world of unlimited funds for everyone I'd agree, the sentiment of buying the best one can afford can be true and indeed lead to much faster gains and enjoyment, if I knew someone who was absolutely serious about learning and for who cash wasn't an issue I'd recommend an Epiphone Les Paul (about £300??) as a minimum to spend due to the sheer playability of them, but also bear in mind that you can spend hundreds and still end up with a real dog..........

However......we're talking about whether this deal is good value, and there is no doubt in my mind that you cannot go wrong with this guitar for a beginner to try out and see how you get on, there's no doubt that a higher priced instrument ultimately will be more satisfying to play, but as has been stated here a few times, you'd have been looking at probably five times this price for this kind of quality 10 years ago.

I replaced the strings on my son's, £6 for a set of Ernie Balls was money well spent and improved the tone no end....

At the end of the day, tis will be aimed at those witha passing interest in learning the guitar (who would then get something better) or kids who want to learn to play and need a cheap guitar to destroy / lose interest in. :)

£36 to do that job is a BARGAIN, most toys cost more than that ffs :roll:
