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.

NaughtyDog

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...

fandyboy

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

asinivali

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

simandoo

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.

A cheap way to crush your kids interest. Buy them something serious if you want them to take it seriously and then sell it on secondhand if they dont.

rowlystravel

honestly buy a yamaha or fender mini. the difference in quality is hard to appreciate without witnessing it for yourself.. it will be with the extra £50 i promise

dark_nugget

As someone who's Dad was always trying to teach them guitar, it took me until I was about 11 to become interested enough to stick at it, mostly because I thought girls would like a guy who plays guitar! I still play now at 29 - Maybe it is worth shelving the idea for a while and picking up a full size second hand acoustic (with low action if possible) nearer when your kids are approaching their teens?

s100nko

I have also picked up a second hand one ( from Shpock) and glad I did. My little one get bored after 3 lessons :(

Aria AK series are awesome starter guitars. Buy kids something that doesn't sound like a toy if you want to keep them interested, very difficult these days though! http://www.ariaguitars.co.uk/index.php?route=product/product&path=62&product_id=13671

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.

bladesuk1

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.

psychoid

Sound plays a part too

bladesuk1

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.

Istanbul_Kop

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.

TheMev

Think you would be better off with the Epiphone set for only £20 more.. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Epiphone-PPEG-EGL1EBCH1-UK-Paul-Player-Pack/dp/B00KNR9P60/ref=pd_lpo_sbs_267_t_2?_encoding=UTF8&refRID=FZG4Y9H7RPWMHQ4AS8Q8&th=1 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

bigbak

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.

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

addisj

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'

lageryron

I would put just one normal tuning peg on it .

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

ChrisGuitar

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

JamesSmith

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.

seany1977

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".

Stompa

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!

mikeonuk

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

Holte_ender

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.

Looks good! I've got a Gibson Explorer, but I would happily pick one of these up as well. If you didn't like the sound, change the pickups. Most comment that build quality is solid and that sound out of the box with base pickups is great. If you wanted a cheap Gibson LP (ok, 'epiphone') then this surely is the one! sunburst looks a bit tacky, Vintage SB looks awesome though for a few quid more.
