    Hello Everyone,

    I saw this Strat copy at one of the local used stores this weekend and was wondering if anyone has experience with these things. Online reviews range from "complete rubbish" to "my favorite go-to guitar!"

    As usual, my concern is buying and setting it up and then not being able to recoup my investment ($80). I already have enough cheapo project guitars (mainly Squiers, which I'm guessing have more name recognition) as it is. It looks a lot like the one below.

    But you know how it is when you run across a potentially cool project for relatively little money. Your thoughts?

    I have several Samicks, and they're all good guitars. Samick is the largest musical instrument manufacturer in the world, and you don't get that way by selling crap. Those who denigrate Samicks are headstock whores.
