Excellent price, but has anyone tried them?
#2
Just wanted to point out it's free delivery. But, are they any good?
#3
What a great way to support a good cause. Of course they won't be a patch on the originals but probably better than the cheap chinese knock-offs you find on places like e-buyer. Have some heat!!
#4
I haven't played one myself but a friend of mine (who is an excellent guitarist) had a play with a tele and says they sit just ahead of the beginner guitars (Squire, Westfield, etc) in terms of quality.

Bit more info here (see comment 3)
"The quality does not appear to be an issue. Mark felt that they were perfectly good and seemed excellent value for money."

Yes, leftyphobia is becoming almost as big a problem in our society as all the other phobias. Time to form an action group, lobby Parliament and appeal to the European Court of Human Rights!

My Dad bought a Bass guitar off these guys just the otherday, I've not seen it in the flesh but from what I've heard its amazing quality for the price and "miles better than the mock fenders and stuff you see in the shops" as quoted. Can't see the harm in it if its for a good cause and your getting a quality built bass for that price.

They are made in China designed in UK. I found a review of the acoustic and semi acoustic which was quite positive (for the full price).

Interesting to read Callmejimmy's link - I didn't realise the mark up on guitars was 100% as standard. Seems a lot. Sounds like the launch was very problematic. Still, if they are pants at least it went to a good cause.

Worth noting that the SR acoustics seem to be solid top, which is good for the price.

Bargain guys, seriously, go for this, you wont get this quality for the same price elsewhere!
#13

How can you conclude they are an excellent price if you know nothing about them?

Surely that should be the Court of Human Lefts?

There are a couple of left handed classical guitars but they're not Mark Griffiths designed
#17
they sold harmonicas for £3 a while ago.
personally id go for something like a pasicifca or squire, ive got a squire with amp on ebay for 110 for example.

and im left handed and play right handed, it makes things much easier.

I notice all the electrics are the wrong way round – they’re all right handed! Now I read the comments here I find other people have remarked on this too, so I don’t need to mention it now.

Great Deal, i like it.. thank
#22
Just bought a blue strat for £59.99 absolute bargain even if the hardware sucks I'll just buy new pickups and upgrade it :) Thanks OP heat added and glad its for charity too

By the way looks like both the Teles are out of stock as it wouldnt let me order either
#23
There's a Bass in the photo but can't find a Bass on the site ?
#24
Being a numpty about this type of thing, can anyone tell me the difference between the £86.59 Les Paul on the Sue Ryder site versus this £50 one on eBay?
#25
As an ex-Sony artist (guitar). If you're learning to play, this is a much better bet than a nylon acoustic with mile-high action. I learned on an electric and would probably never bothered on a classical as the learning curve is way too steep.

funny you should use that exact word - is where the word sinistral is derived as left handed people were seen as being evil - in the days before guitars!!

why not get that jimmy H sound and just restring upside down - pretty sure thats what he did(_;)

would agree - I struggled to learn on an old classical that required some strength to hold a bar chord!! (having never picked up a guitar prior to that) - When i moved on to a good electric it was unbelievable how easy/comfortable it was to play.

Hi, sorry if this seems a stupid question but I want to be able to play Mr Brightside on the guitar. Ive learned some of it on my acoustic but its obviously just not the same. Can anyone tell me out of the 6 guitars on sale, which one would best replicate the sound.

From what I understand in your question !!

You might need a Processor such as Digitech Boss or Korg multi effect processors.

Personally you cant beat Digitech GNX 4 :) But I am sure few people will argue there are betters out there ( Not for the money you can get GNX 4 for)

Thankyou for your reply, very helpful, but on the site with the guitars there are 6 on offer, which of the six do you think i should purchase.
#32
All well most electric guitars suitable to be used with most effect processors,( via versa) , Its all down to style and end result !

If you are just a beginner any of those guitars ( possibly the strat would be better over telecaster)
And you can look in to getting a Line 6 pod or something in that range ) is a good start

why not try native instruments guitar rig software - I think they might even have a factory preset for that same song - Its quite a useful piece of software for learning (metronome etc) and takes some of the guesswork out of all the settings needed to replicate some of the classics as it has loads of preset amps/effects. It also emulates all the old favs such as the Vox AC30 (beatles/jam), I have only just started using it as kids mean I am now restricted to headphones only:(

They do make it as a package including the interface for around £70 or you could just get a copy of the software and buy something like the alesis guitar link for around £20 like I did.

Do you mean the main Mr Brightside riff? Deson't really matter, the amp/overdrive is much more important. It could be a single coil or a humbucker guitar listening to it.
#35
Thanks OP odered a Les Paul style - cherry sunburst
#36
My white Tele just arrived - no news on the tone yet but in terms of feel and finish I'm really impressed, so impressed that I just ordered a Strat too :D
#37
bought one and returned it .. the blue strat ... rubbish, needed a fret dress, a set up and and some decent pickups. Neck was a bit too chunky as well .. to get it playing any where near would cost £100 beter off buying a yamaha or fender squire or a Vintage .. they are made in Korea and are higly spec'd can get them for under £50 (squire) or around £80 for the other 2
