Very nearly bought one of these earlier, very good price


Oh I see. I mentioned it because I thought you wanted it to keep. I bought a black one. They make this used so no issues selling!


I was thinking of getting one just to flip on eBay.. I wondered whether you'd get what you paid for it though after selling fees. I'm sure you will get on with it. She looks very nice!!


Maybe you can buy mine if I don’t get on with it, because I’ll return it or put it on eBay!


Gone now. I do hope if someone bought from here that they would thank the op in the comment. Slightly regretting not getting one now.

Good guitar this, sounds great. I've got about £500 flying around but desperate for a Jazzmaster!


Its a 2016 Studio - mahogany body, maple top, rosewood fretboard, so same materials as a Standard. By all accounts, its less-flashy version of the Standard, but for about half the price (I paid £600). I've looked at the spec for the guitar listed here and compared it to the spec of my LP ( and they seem to be indentical. Same materials, same pickups. So as far as I can tell, this IS the same guitar, or a newer version of mine. That being the case, this is £100 cheaper than I paid - this is a 'proper' LP, not a Special.


Aren't the more recent Gibson's supposed to be substandard when compared to ones say 5 - 10 years earlier?


Weight relief explained for anyone interested:


depends what year your guitar was made. the studio's were originally introduced in the early 90's. there was also a les paul special which was even more bare bones and cheaper than the studio's. the names have interchanged over the years, and under the recent management of Gibson. also it depends on what woods were used to construct the guitar, that would indicate what it is. also note that they named this the Gibson les paul faded, not studio as that exists in the current line up. so you could call this a "new" model, I know it as a GLP special

I'll have to give the martins a try. Glad the lights, custom and medium are all the same price.


Used them for years. Like the sound and the feel on my fingers. And, of course, they're at the lower end of cost!


Great guitar for smashing up on stage!!! Rock on (strong)


Perhaps "duller" was the wrong word. I meant volume. As an experienced player you know what I mean, extra light strings will give you significantly less volume on a jumbo guitar... For anyone interested in the sound difference there are plenty of youtube videos. I'm curious why you use them as an experienced player?


What a breath of fresh air this comment represents (:I In another guitar thread it came up that if you find you enjoy making tunes by plucking strings then even an old stick and some fishing line is better than nothing (lol)

If you are serious about learning the electric guitar, start with a Squier HARD TAIL Stratocaster, as it won't go out of tune as much as the tremolo ones, and get a decent amplifier, not a toy. You could spend around 200 for both. If you are not serious, get a classical or acoustic Yamaha. Don't buy the cheapest thing available, it will make your learning experience miserable.


Now imagine spending £300+ only to find out electric guitars aren't your cup of tea.. More reason to go in lower, it won't be such a big loss financially, and if on the other hand you fall in love with the pastime, you can then confidently go and spend more (or upgrade) (y)


Getting looser by the minute.


Absolutely, my comments weren't a reflection on the product or the fact that this is a good deal. In fact I even gave you a + just after you posted it. My point was about usage trends on cheap musical instruments. People buy them, play them for 15 minutes, realise that guitar learning requires work and then just discard them until the spring clean-up. The only looser in this? The amazonian forest...


I know it's only an example but it would mean trusting "martin" who's only been posting on gumtree for 11 months, plus collection only, no guarantee etc.. The guitar looks great for £40 (to me) but it could have a serious problem that's unnoticeable to a learner. This Maestro package comprises of a decent beginners guitar but with low quality accessories, esp the amp. I could imagine the amp being outgrown in a few months even though it's only meant for practice.

What would you recommend second hand? I’m in the market for a reasonable electric guitar.


Why not 50 or 100? Because I don’t have 100. I do have more than 10. I do have a USA les Paul, I do have a USA Strat, I do have an almost 40 year old Ibanez mij artist among others. Nothing I have said wasn’t backed up by even the guy in the video who upgraded one. Also I do think an iRig and headphones are much better for a beginner than that terrible amp. Here you go, here are the first few. I’ll do some more in the morning for you if you like, I have a lovely Schecter Strat ala dire straits and a very nice mij tele. Also I didn’t shout at anyone and if you don’t like what I say you are free to move on.


no i am not going to watch a stupid video at your suggestion and no i don't care what some random idiot is saying - (on the basis: one idiot is more then enough) what sort of deplorable person would buy a guitar and amp package to then throw the amp away ?? - unless maybe he has atleast 1000 amps lying around the house ??? - you can talk nonsense, but keep your behaviour to yourself - like i said.


If you watch the video of the guy upgrading he confirms what I said. bridge had to be replaced, fact pick up had to be replaced, fact tuners replaced, fact wiring work had to be done, fact fret/neck work, fact truss rod adjusted majorly almost to breaking point, fact. amp that came with set up binned, fact. Or just buy a decent guitar to start I said oh and if you scroll back you’ll see some of my 10+guitars, USA Strat, USA les paul, mij Ibanez artist


your talking out of your bottom - all you have done is (bar being annoying / spouting / spamming brand names) advise people to spend a SURPLUS (over two times over deal price) and have no amp... - enjoy your alleged "atleast 10 guitars" (why not 50 ? why not 100 ?) / - you factually talk nonsene (as above). (up to you if you want to talk nonsense, but don't go around shouting at people because of it.)

Recent review of this


yeah I've left mine alone but I know some people have their own preferences, great guitar for the price hope you enjoy it :)

Ban_Anas point buying a g400 pro if intention imho. (have one on order / bought for action + pups / taps - leaving well T.F. alone)


can't beat a maple satin neck though... imho (garbage ceramic pickups and bridge aside). if had a epi standard bridge setup i would have probably have been buying.


I’m not sure how good the very cheap Gibson’s are, the firebird zero and M2 seemed to get some pretty mixed reviews. It’s probably worth the extra money to step up to the faded or studio models ( whatever the next step up is ) or for 300 you can pickup an G400 pro Can even get it in a silver burst for a tenner more leaves you some extra cash to start swapping pickups or hardware Second hand can probably do even better for your money either on the Gibson or epiphones

The main thing about Yamaha that is impressive is the action. These cheap Made in China Fenders and Gibson have so high action that they are pretty much unplayable and they will be a bad experience for a new guitarist. Barre chords? Forget it, unless you pay another 50 quid on a good setup.


I learned to play on a battered £15 second hand acoustic and I would recommend finding one as cheap as possible. Firstly, I found it easier to press the strings on the used guitar and secondly, if you decide you don’t want to keep it up then next to no money has been lost. I used the money I saved to put towards a decent ‘proper’first guitar that I appreciated so much more for already being able to play (y) I’m sure others will say different, just my 10p’s worth...


If you want to turn off someone new to playing guitar, buy this.


Just because it says "by Gibson" in the title doesn't mean it's any good, as others have said a budget Yamaha would probably be a much better choice for not that much more money


I'd get a second hand that's easier to play. These tend to have a relatively high bridge if I'm thinking of the right one and it's hard to physically press the stings onto the frets for a beginner.

This. Action is way too high on these, and the hardware is junk, you need a good setup that will cost you more than the guitar to be able to play it without killing your fingers (or ears).

doug and pat


i would suggest the change in wiring from the start to the end of the signal effects the sound. as for playability, with so much variety in the various sizes of the various body parts involved in playing the guitar trying to buy one without holding it, that is online, becomes a bit of a mostly miss situation. on youtube there are a couple of old american longhairs who compare gibson guitars from the various era's and play them through different amps. even though we get signal compression variation in sound is evident.


For a guitar, the sound is basically down to how the amp interprets the electrical signal from the pickup. If it's nice to play, it's trivial to buy some nice sounding pick ups and a nice sounding amp, but finding a guitar that *plays* well is much more difficult.


Sound plays a part too


personally, i couldn't care less where the components are from - i'm more interested in the level of quality control and finish. hell, i used to own a gibson les paul gothic - but i sold it and bought a cort z44, and imo it's a vastly better guitar for a fraction of the price. unless you're looking to sell guitars on down the line, just find one that's nice to play and forget the label on the headstock.

Well Hendrix is much older and a stepping stone, just like Van Halen after him, but the world of guitar has evolved a lot since the 60s and 70s. Since the 80s, not thaaaat much, that was the era where guitar was explored thoroughly. That's not to say that there is no great original guitar music produced today, but it doesn't break new ground as much.

Avoid. Cheap and nasty. The Yamaha's are the only decent guitars that Argos sell. As for epiphone, very hit and miss on quality control. Don't buy epiphone online, you really need to check them for yourself.


I get a weird vibe from that video. Like the guy has just casually murdered his wife and she's lying mangled behind the camera.


A video of the guitar and amp in action here for you guys


Think you would be better off with the Epiphone set for only £20 more.. Better guitar, better amp, includes a tuner and bag for guitar. Not that I am saying either will sound great (always the amps that let these sets down). Also while we are nit picking, how can it have a 3 way pick up selector switch with only one pick up? It appears to be an invisible one anyway.

Great starter guitar. Worth the price tag, owned one for two years when starting out and still regret selling it to this day. Might actually bite just for the meories


Possibly. I think some parts age it, which it’s supposed to. Not having them makes it cheaper to produce. I prefer the narrow neck as well. Cheaply upgrade a few bits and you’d be laughing


Gah, if only they did one at this price with a single P90. I'd probably dip into the kids' Christmas fund and buy myself one.

Not sure about quality, but in my opinion the best learners guitar is the Yamaha F310


I think this is fine for beginners although you might need to lower the action on it so the strings aren't so hard to press.

Late to the party, but guessing this is no longer stocked if the link doesn't work?


Amazingly cheap for a USA Gibson, it looks like the '57 Classic pickups alone retail at £80 each. Good find!


I gave in and bought one. GAK are now including a free pack of Elixir strings to boot. I play mostly rock and blues and this thing really surprised me. It's just perfect for both. The neck is a joy to use. I usually like thick necks and this is kinda in between. Fills your hand and it tends to make me play more accurately when playing lead - no doubt because it is asymmetric. The pickups are a great match for the body and tone woods. Thick smoldering tones with nice articulation when playing lightly and a fat punch when you dig in. I also noticed how the whole guitar resonates when playing. You can really feel the head stock vibrating when tuning which is a good sign. The tuners are really accurate and feel stable. A very expressive instrument. I know a good guitar when I play one for the simple reason that I can't put it down once I start playing. I have been playing for 24 years and I own 14 electrics ranging from Custom shop Gibson Les Paul's to vintage strats and in my opinion this is a GREAT player. Sometimes the tone from a Les Paul is just too much and the tone from a Strat is just too little and too familiar.. and that's when something like this just fits the bill. If I had to sum up the tone in one word it would be 'smoldering'


I would put just one normal tuning peg on it .


Never played a Gibson SG, but the other half said no more guitars....

Came across this deal on Gibson Les Paul 2017. It seems a good deal even not being a black friday's deal :-) !
Get dealGet deal

Actually I prefer yours to the 2017 model, since it has Burstbucker Pro pickups :-)


I am pretty happy with it. Doesn't seem to be bad quality at all. The only issue i have had is the fret board seems to dry out faster than my other guitars but apart from that it's good. Mine is a 2016 model, hence the block inlays


Roger that. The store is in Blackburn, and Reidys are reputable. Well worth the trip for those interested in this guitar. Would also allow £20-30 for a setup. Shouldn't have to really, but I think that's true of most guitars in this bracket right now. Maybe Reidys would do a basic setup as goodwill. Another £80 for a hardcase if it's going out the house at all. Just bought a Schecter otherwise I'd consider it. Price is great for a fine example.


Must....have. Food and rent is over rated.


Yes you are right. I've had problems with their QC in the past when ordering on-line. So I would advise people to go to the store and try a few before buying.

If your daughter wants to Hendrix out, she's gotta shred her fingers. When she complains just tell her: "Suck it up,It's a long way to the top if you wanna rock and roll".


I've never really found that to be the case. I think the way I'd look at it is that they're essentially different instruments, that are used for different purposes, and have different playing techniques. On that I would agree!


Actually, Pagey is keen on a bargain and is a bit of a haggler.


What I think we can agree on is that it's largely down to personal preference. I think there's an obvious difference in volume and clarity with steel and if I recall correctly, nylon strings needed tuning much more frequently. I agree certain types of music may be more suitable for nylon however I firmly believe steel is best all round. That's my opinion and I'm happy to observe others so, I won't accept that as 'simply wrong.' also probably fair to say that once you've got used to steel, nylon won't present any problems at all with pain, whereas going the other way, might be a little more uncomfortable for a while.


I highly recommend Chongam music school. Here's a video of the kids playing at the Summer Fair...
