kinda want this
A friend had one of those. Nastiest neck twist I've ever seen. Those pickups may look like humbuckers, but underneath they were single coils with a half full bucker cover. Boly neck, by the way. The Bigsby copy was string thru, not pins. It made for a nice art project.
"Same style George Harrison played on the 1st Ed Sullivan Beatles appearance." .... LMFAO
That thing is not even worth $100, in my opinion.
Lyle, Kent, some Epi, Ive had a few, nothing but a fight to make right. Usually impossible to intonate for starters.
No Thanks. Invest that money in a quality instrument you wont regret owning.
Yup, a bolt on neck. While that's not necessarily bad, this had a really odd neck joint, and there was no way to replace it easily. It looked good, but that was it. Cheesy pickups and hardware, about as cheap as it could be.
Sometimes imitation isn't flattering---it's just a rip off.
The title of this thread was in jest. I am always amazed by how many superficially similar copies were made of expensive guitars by budget labels. Must have been a market for them.
There was a market for them because most people couldn't afford a real one.
How many Strat copies are there?
Put it back in the closet.....
