However every time I walk past it in the hall way on its stand I give it a little strum and it still sounds as in tune as it did the day I bought it and tuned it. Can't say better than that!



Well the tuning pegs are holding their tune, but unless you play across the fingerboard you can’t know the neck isn’t shaped like a banana

Any decent prices for this for lefties?

I learned to play on a one of these, great instrument, very comfortable.

The Tribute, the 60s Tribute, the Studio, the Less and a few others. The Junior with a single pickup and an odd shaped pickguard barely qualifies as a Les Paul.... :pThe ones that cost a few quid are the Standard and the Traditional, and 2016s are being sold off now for £1500 and £1200. The Customs and the true historics for quite a lot more.



I have a standard, an LPJ (not a junior) and an SG (which were of course Les Paul's when released) the junior gets played more than all of them.

Juniors have been around since the 50's so of course it's a Les Paul

Also worth noting that often "cheaper" models are structurally identical to more expensive models minus time consuming extras like binding, gloss paint etc

Comes in a pretty good case, just seems to be some canvas material with polystyrene padding on the inside but it'll hold up to a few bumps. The whole top of the case zips as well so you could probably fit some music or a small book in there. You get the case, violin, a bow, rosin and some straps so you can carry the case on your back. Unfortunately I snapped a string as I was learning that you have to push the pegs in as you turn them to tune it but I did manage to tune it using PitchLab Lite. Can't really comment on how well it holds its tune as i can't be sure i'm applying correct pressure on the pegs, but i did manage to get a reasonably pleasant sound out of the remaining strings after applying rosin to the bow. But all in all i'd say it's a lot of instrument for the money, definitely not a toy and at this price easily worth a try if you or your child aren't sure if you're going to enjoy it enough to really splash out on one.Now, to pick up some new strings.

Looks are personal but the guitar is a genuine diamond. I don't own one as I use PRS electrics as have a mind that allows non Gibson/fenders to be tried and experienced. My acoustic is a Taylor Ltd edition fall 2011 koa guitarAmp is a Hughes and Kettner grandmeister 3



Boasting about what gear you've bought doesn't prove your experience as a good guitarist - only an unhealthy attitude. I think it would be more just to say: "buy whatever guitar you want, as long as it aspires you to play." My relationship with my Pacifica 012 hasn't been great as my personal feeling towards the guitar is that it's a little boring and a little ugly, which did damaged my interest when starting to play.

This does remind me of a story in Guitarist magazine. Some guy had saved up for many years to finally buy a beautiful 2 grand PRS superstrat. While admiring it when he finally got it home he thought to himself..."I wish I'd learned to play the guitar before I bought this!"

I hope no one thinks I am hijacking this thread but I just wanted to update and say that I have now received the Shine SIL-510 guitar (linked above) and I have to say that I am stunned at the quality for £99. Granted, they were 'apparently' £349 originally but even so I am very impressed. The guitar is 'new' old stock and was probably made circa. 2004 but was delivered in perfect condition with a free case (cheapo, but all the same). I cannot find anything but praise for this model on the net and I would support that view. This model was deleted from the catalogue a long time ago so when they are gone, they are gone.

Hendrix compensated by having a bizarre picking technique



I see what you mean ...

http://a.abcnews.go.com/images/Entertainment/gty_jimi_hendrix_playing_tongue_guitar_bw_thg_121120_wblog.jpg

If you are on a budget, check out the Squier Classic Vibe series. REALLY nice for the money.

Mexican Strats are okay but when I replaced mine with a Strat Plus it was night and day really and it should have been as it was about 80% more expensive.
One enormous difference was the pickups as I felt I had 5 very useable and distinct sounds with the Plus which I didn’t get with my MIM.
With the Plus I could just plug it into my Fender Pro Jnr and get that beautiful Fender tone without any need for pedals.

That spoilt me for non premium guitars and have since had some good deals on eBay when collecting in person to confirm the quality.
A lovely G&L Legacy USA Deluxe for ~£500 and a Carvin DC135T Custom for ~£425.
Both lovely guitars with decent hard cases which when added to the cost of a MIM would make it around £425.
Voted this hot just not for me.
Nearly lost it and bid on a Custom Shop Masterbuilt Strat this week as it had no bids and had a starting price of £2k. It was a LTD edition Proto of the Hendrix Strat with a reverse headstock. Sanity prevailed for once.

But the point is, I dont want a PC - in my opinion the Imac is better and my reason for using HUKD is 'How cheaply can I get the product I have chosen'.

I think the Micra is a poor quality product, but at £500 cheaper than anywhere else it is still a hot deal.

Your experience with apple means you think a PC is the way forward thats great - but that is not a reason to vote an apple deal cold. Just like I have no reason to vote the Micra deal cold.

People buy apple because they want to feel like they're up-to date not because the product is necessary. I mean why did that guy ask for an alternative with the exact specifications of iMac, he didn't think of the specs first but after he found the iMac

lol you still don't get it do you?

I dont know why I'm saying this again, but this site is about finding the best price for a given product, if that product is £1500 everywhere else but you found it for £1000 then it is a good deal.

The fact that you can achieve the same result by buying a different manufacturer of a similar product for £750 is not relevant as this site is about finding the best price rather than the best product. In any case whether 'product a' is better than 'product b' is potentially subjective and perhaps down to personal experience.

For example I own and Audi A4 and a Ford Fiesta, both roughly the same age, both diesels but the Audi cost my 20k, and the Ford only 10k. Yes, they both do the same job - I get from A to B in the same amount of time, but the Audi is a better car hands down.

It drives better, it has better economy, superior styling and build quality, it is a more comfortable ride etc etc. Is it better 'value' well yes it is but it depends on what you want when you buy the car, do you want basics, or do you want premiums. They are not comparable, they do similar things but the way in which they do those things is inherently different.

Taking it back to the Mac/PC argument, yes I can get a PC to do what my Imac does for about £300 - £500. But with the Imac It drives better, it has better economy, superior styling and build quality, it is a more comfortable ride etc etc. Is the PC better 'value' well yes it is but it depends on what you want when you buy the computer, do you want basics, or do you want premiums.

My point is that this website is about 'price' not necessarily quality. Too many people on here see 'product a' and think 'I don't like product a therefore it is a bad deal' rather than 'I dont like product a but the price seems good/bad'

Apologies for droning on, and hopefully my spelling improved
