would this be aby good for a beginner, or would it be best getting an acoustic guitar
#4
the £40.75 is ideal for a starter better than an accoustic really.
Has all that you will need (amp, wires, etc).
£41 for a guitar if you dont enjoy it will be able to trade in at cash converters probably at no loss or very little
#5
Yes it will be fine to learn on, however, as with everything it's get what you pay for. I imagine, like lots of cheap guitars, this will go out of tune easily and quickly and you may be tuning it in quite a lot.

I found that when I got an electric after a couple of years of acoustics I found the electric far easier to play which maybe down to the fact that electrics have a slimmer necks in general. Having said that I still think it's beneficial to start on an acoustic and move to electric.

I wouldn't bother with that amp either, it will put you off playing it, it will be awful.

i hav had 1 off the guitars and it is not a good guitar and i wood not get it 4 a starter 2 bad bad guitar spend a bit on 1 and it will last u a long time and it will get the best out of u 2 but THIS IS NOT HOT IT IS COLD COLD COLD
#7
i know this sounds cumb, but can you play it without an amp or is a must have
#8
you need an amp of some sort
banned#9
if you don't want an amp as such you could get a modeling effects unit such as Zoom or Behringer which you could plug headphones into. Modeling units imitate popular guitar sounds. But one of these would cost more than the guitar though you might be able to pick up something cheap off of ebay.

Jeez, I hope you don't play as badly as you write:p

There are a number of of threads about this guitar and for the price, the consensus is that it represents a very good buy.

Also, read the comments on Ebuyer and remember it's less than £30.

It's a beginners guitar and if the beginner gets fed up with having to learn, it's only £30 lost. However, if they beome enthused and start to make progress then investing in a better guitar may be the right thing to do.
#11
I bought one of these a while back. Excellent value for money if your thinking about taking up guitar.

Great to start with (not as sore on the fingers as an acoustic)

I've now progressesd to an acoustic but i definately would not have gotten this far without first beginning on the electric.

Rock on !

Going down the modelling route I can HIGHLY recommend Line 6's Toneport series (i have the UX1 ~£65). It will play through your PC (and therefore it's speakers) and you can record with very very low latency levels.

This deal is a great price, I still recommend an acoustic first though!

I reccommend anyone out there thinking xmas presents tries to find a second hand better quality guitar for a touch more than this. I know others will probably have said the same, but it deserves repeating. A rubbish guitar can simply put a beginner off and lead to endless retuning.

Seconded. This is a mighty cheap way to put someone off playing guitar for life.:oops: Spend a tenner or so more and get a second-hand Yamaha Pacifica from eBay.

YES it is cheap, but NO this is not good value considering you can get a guitar that is tonnes easier and more enjoyable to play for about the same money.

Show where you can get the Yamaha for "a tenner or so more" plus delivery?

To re-iterate, this is £26.81 + £4.79 delivery - £31.60 delivered

It's not cheap, something is only cheap if it is really worth more than the price it's being sold for.

This is expensive rubbish. how do i know? because i see the poor mis-informed souls bring them in my shop because x-y-z has broken on them within a week. Made of MDF, plastic machineheads, steer clear.

It makes me sick when people say these are fine for learning on. All they will really do is put you off for life because the intonation (tuning all along the neck) on them is non-existant and the action (string height) is ridiculously high that it would work better as a cheese slice.

What does that mean? even a pro couldnt get a decent song out of it. [COLOR="Red"]AVOID AVOID AVOID[/COLOR].

If guitars could really be produced for this kind of money don't you think all the local music shops would already be selling them at that price?

If you want to get your child a cheap instrument to get them into music you are probably better off getting a £15 ukulele.

If you want to keep your fire burning for the winter, buy these guitars.

I bought one of these about 18 months ago. It has been great. I have since bought a better guitar and a new amp but still have this for the kids to thrash. It is the perfect guitar to see if you are going to want to continue playing, which is what it did for me. This price is a bargain (but you do need an amp).
For the price it is pretty well made but do bare in mind in six months you might want another but for £30 quid so what.
By the way, if you can get a Pacifica for a £10 (!!!!)get it on here cos that would heat up ****ing quick. More like £70 (if you can pick it up) to £120 on e-bay.
#22
Definately ice cold. I paid more than this for a no brand guitar like this, something like £60 and it almost put me off playing the guitar for good. Was getting really frustrated as I couldn't make any bar chords sound right even though I could easily do them on my instructor's left handed guitar upside down.

Luckily I carried on trying and spent £300 on a Fender Strat and haven't put it down since! Well worth the investment as it will never really lose money!

For somebody with no patience this could easily frustrate them and put them off the guitar for life, highly NOT recommend!

MY Daughter of 6 years old wants a electric guitar , i think this will be a phase but however her dad used to play in the past so im hoping he will teach her a few things, it must be pink and of 3/4 size, she wants this for xmas day, i have seen the rock candy ones in woolworths been marked down, not sure if this is any good for her or not ? i dont want a toy one, has to be a real working one, please help me, i dont want to spend anymore than £70 ? iv looked on ebay but dont really know what is good and isnt, thankyou

Crunchie, you are talking out of your AR**. . . NO MDF, NO Plastic Machine heads. . . Mmmmmm no axe to grind for you then, having a music shop. . . no pun intended. . .

Granted, straight out of the box, they need a bit of setting up. but being a Guitarist myself, 20 minutes with a tuner and an allen key, and I had one of these set up well within the parameters of a decent guitar. OK we would all love our kids to start on a nice Fender. . BUT. £200 -£500 is a lot to spend to find out like me that after a few weeks your son is bored and wants a drum kit. .

If you take one of these into any music shop (apart from Crunchies obviously) they will be happy to adjust the guitar for you to make it eminently more playable for a few quid, money well spent.

cRuNcHiE
What does that mean? even a pro couldnt get a decent song out of it. [COLOR="Red"]AVOID AVOID AVOID[/COLOR].


Well after sorting out the intonation, and lowering the action I found one of these to be fairly playable. . OK it couldnt touch my Jackson, but didnt annoy me to play, only thing is it lacked a bit of sustain. .

All the music shops are selling guitars the same as this, only asking ridiculous amounts of money for them. . dont be fooled. Probably getting them off ebuyer too. . .

Well I think once one of these guitars has been set up, its fine for someones first guitar, and then if they show a bit of aptitude, you can think about buying them a better guitar, and if they dont, you haven't wasted £200+

Some useful comments. I'm interested in one of these but I'm watching the debate.
#26
At £26 this is almost a stocking filler! Voted HOT :thumbsup:
#27
This is a hot price, for a reasonable product.

I got my sister one for Xmas last year and it does the job for her just fine. I also got myself one, but found I couldn't get into playing it. I took everyones advice, and got an Acoustic (the Yamaha F310 from Woolworths posted here the other week) and I haven't looked back since.

If this is a gift/gimmick for someone who wants an electric guitar just to be cool, or to muck around on - then it is just fine.

If it is for someone who genuinely wants to learn the guitar, get a good quality acoustic for about £70-80.

Hey, can anyone understand a word of this?:whistling:

How can anyone expect this to be a good guitar for the money? This is an excellent price for a beginner - there's no point spending a lot of money on a learner guitar only to find out it's not for you. There's no losers in buying this. Hot.

To be fair, these are bottom end of the market guitars and build quality will vary from one to the other. I got one for a laugh and I lost out, unfortunately. The neck is so warped that it resembles a harp more than a guitar. No amount of faffing about with the truss rod is going to make any difference and the guitar is not worth the time or effort to take apart and try to bend the neck closer to true. It is not really playable below the fifth fret, so it is only used as a thrasharound.
Others have had better luck and got a gem. The finish is much better than you would expect for this price, but the machine heads are pretty useless, so get used to retuning constantly.
The amp does not have much range, but is ok for the price as long as you don't want to play heavy rock/metal.

This is fairly good but like they say it needs setting up properly. This was my first guitar and I enjoyed it for a while but then it started to wane on me and put me off and I bought a better quality electric. You can play without an amp but of course it won't sound amazing, it's fine for practicing late at night etc but remember that in the case of electric guitars the amp is considered to be part of the instrument.

As for starting on electric or accoustic; I've just bought an accoustic and am having to pretty much learn all over again so if you want to be able to pick up and play any guitar it's better to start on an accoustic although it'll take a bit longer as you need to be more closer to the frets (that's not a bad thing though). It will also build up your finger strength.
#32
Loads of rubbish talked about cheap guitars every time one appears on HUKD. I've bought some of the cheaper ones that the guitar snobs slagged off on here, and guess what? They actually are quite playable.

Not everyone wants to shred.

Some of these guitars won't stay in tune for long, but they will stay in tune for long enough. One of the things a beginner needs to learn as a fundamental is tuning, so if you have to do it often then good, that's a positive. HOT Actually, from the pic this looks like a hardtail (no tremolo/whammy) which should help with the tuning.

I haven't played this one, but if you are beginning on the guitar then learning to speed up your changes between open string chords is going to be as easy on this as it is on an Ibanez Prestige neck. In fact a low action Prestige is going to fret buzz like mad for a beginner so it would probably be worse. Generally these cheap guitars do everything that beginners want OK. Don't listen to the snobs, they know not.


HOT.

PS. Amps. I practice hours every night unplugged. No need for an amp. Young kids sleeping, wife watching soaps. It keeps the peace. Could use an Amplug for £25, but being unplugged does not slow the fingers.

You can just practise this way, its super quiet! My partner plays guitar and always sits playing the electric this way, coz if he played it with the amp he'd wake the kiddies! :w00t:

So basically, you can here it without the amp is what I am saying, just very quiet

What a big old pile of poooooooo :p!

My partner learnt to play on the old, cheep nylon string guitar when he was a kid, he said any kid will be thrilled to get something like this for xmas.
As for extra £10 for a better on on ebay, rubish!
Both my kiddies have acustics and I was getting them a Electric 4 xmas, I have been searching through loads on ebay for weeks and ALL the second hand ones fetch good money, even unbranded ones!

I was about to pay £90 for two electrics intill I saw this post, nowI have paid £98 for two electrics with amps!
Excellent! Great find!

To anyone thinking of getting one please ignore the know it alls who say you get what you pay for and their rubbish, so on. For a starter kit this is perfect. :-D

I got the Sunburst one. It's not as good as the KCC ones that were about last year with the amp, it's a lot lighter and the neck and fret board feel rough.

I got one just to take apart and re-pickup...and mod. :)

I must admit, I was thinking about getting one just to have a go at scalloping the neck, see how it feels. . I always wanted to try it but never had a guitar cheap enough that I wouldnt be devastated if I screwed it up.

Glad to see common sense is prevailing on this thread, and the doomsayers are not winning the day.
Best way to practice with one of these is to buy a cheap Zoom pedal and plug some headphones into it, you can make it sound like a real guitar, and no-one else is disturbed.

The old Zoom 505s are 2 a penny on ebay. . .

I'm not gonna waste my time replying with a 'fight' because at the end of the day i work in music shop, i dont OWN it so whether you come to us or not i dont care. but i am a musician and a guitar tech and i dont want to see people get put off for life by this rubbish.

no matter what you say , i have seen literally thousands of these guitars, you have one.
If someone wants to believe your opinion, more fool them.

I'm merely vocalising my experience, as a guitar tech who deals with these daily and has a LOT more experience of them than you do.

Plus considering as your top guitar is a jackson, you are showing your lack of knowledge by using that as a benchmark.

At the end of the day people dont just believe me, ring up some local guitar teachers and ask them NOT just some randoms off the internet including me.

and for the record, the tuners ARE plastic inside the casing, its usually chrome-coloured plastic covers on them which to the eye looks very convincing.

And as for MDF, the HARDWOOD description for the body is the tell-tale sign that these are MDF. MDF is often mis-represented as hardwood by the chinese.

Your local music shop is highly unlikely to sell these if they have any rep whatsoever.


p.s i take back what i say about using these guitars as firewood. The fumes would probably kill you.
Using the guitar as a table however... spot on!

Ohhh rational argument again, my dad is bigger than your dad.
My Jackson is a beautiful guitar, sounds gorgeous, really sweet neck wouldnt swap it for nowt.
Obviously Randy Rhoads, Kirk Hammet and Vinnie Vincent, all guitar gods of their time and to whom money was no object chose Jackson Guitars for other reasons. .

A guitar is a personal thing and once youve found one you love it doesnt matter who its made by, I have mates with £1000+ guitars they hate, and mates with old battered guitars they wouldnt trade the world for. . Sounds to me like you sell them all day but never picked one up and fallen in love with it. .

cRuNcHiE
And as for MDF, the HARDWOOD description for the body is the tell-tale sign that these are MDF. MDF is often mis-represented as hardwood by the chinese.


Clever blokes these chinese, they can make MDF with grain. . .

Bottom line is that this is fantastic value for money, and judging from my experience with these guitars, they are getting more consistent. . what do you expect for this sort of price. . buyers on here are under no illusions that these guitars are not comparable to an expensive guitar, but you are just putting people off a good deal with your bitterness and pseuso-tech rantings.

Here we go again with the cheap Vs. expensive guitars.......acoustic vs. electric.

If you're talented, you'll shine on either. If you're motivated, but talentless, you'll endeavor to learn on either, and maybe play a few decent songs for your own pleasure.

My nephew has a £600 Stratacaster, he can play, but he's lazy and the guitar sits collecting dust. He learned to play on a cheapo and showed some talent which encouraged us to spend more £££ for him. A waste of money until he decides to play it or sell it.

Jimmy Hendrix learned on a $5.00 guitar, and on a one-stringed banjo, he learned by practicing almost constantly, watching others play, through tips from more experienced players, and by listening to records.

His got his first electric, but had no amp...............true talent and hard work are what it takes.

Just because you have been playing for 25 years doesn't mean you are any good lol. And obviously haven't learned anything yet.

smoggleboon

Those that can, do - those that can't work in music shops


I CHOOSE to work in a music shop because its a nice chilled out job. You obviously aren't able to do either.

i vote we end this squabble with duelling banjos at dawn lol.

As i said above peeps, don't just take my or his word for it. Ask some guitar teachers.
