    Hi, anyone know anything about these? I have one that was a gift from my Dad, trying to find out info about it and its value. Cheers.

    Low value, budget guitars. Very thin body, so you don’t get a very full sound from them. Not saying they can’t be good players, though.

    It just will never have a good resale value.

    From what I remember, they sound like crap unplugged, sound pretty good plugged in. But they play well. Pete Townsend used one for one show, a lot of people were not happy about it.

    Well said. Sums it up just fine. I got one several years back due to hand problems and they were easier to play versus a standard acoustic. They sound ok plugged in. Use it to record. Although I use a GR55 synth for acoustics now. Neck like a Strat. Easy to play. I don't buy guitars to re-sell, so I don't care what its worth.

    Well it was supposed to bridge the gap between a Strat and an acoustic.

    Like any dual purpose product it does neither well.

    Prone to feedback when used like a Strat, doesn't sound like an acoustic.

    Knew a guy that had one, he let me keep it for a couple weeks. Practically had to force him to take it back.
