    California Classic Solid Body Electric Guitar - Black

    You know it when you hear it. That distinctive California Classic sound made famous by artists like Dick Dale, David Gilmour, and Ritchie Blackmore. Whether it is the surf, blues, psychedelic rock, country, or classic hard rock, this California Classic Solid Body Electric Guitar from Monoprice is the perfect axe for your daily practice and performance needs.

    This full-sized, 22-fret guitar features a double-cutaway body made of basswood, a bolt-on maple neck, a rosewood fingerboard, and chrome machine heads/tuning pegs. It uses three single-coil pickups in the bridge, middle, and neck positions. A five-position selector switch allows you to use each of the three pickups individually, while the 2 and 4 positions combine the neck and bridge pups with the middle one for that distinctive "quack" sound. A tremolo/whammy bar is included for note bending.

    Before it gets shipped to you, each Monoprice guitar undergoes a setup, tuning, and inspection process by Master Luthier Roger Gresco here in Southern California. The setup ensures that the neck is straight, the action is right, and that it will stay in tune.

    It's the one I keep reaching for. These will make great Christmas presents!

    CONS: None!

    MonoPrice has a winner
    Beautiful guitar, plays as good as any strat I have ever picked up, very fast action with precision intonation all over the fretboard, stays in tune after playing hours of heavy hammering on the guitar.
    Neck feels good as does all the hardware, sounds like a full priced strat after putting some DR 10's on the guitar.
    Every part I have looked up from a strat MIM will fit on this guitar, Hmmmm?
    If you are looking for a good playing guitar then you have found it right here on MonoPrice this is a outstanding piece of musical equipment and by the way the neck feels fantastic and has blazing fast action right out of the box without not even the slightest fret buzz (Thanks, Roger Gresco) who would have thought all this for under $90, for all you skeptics out there who feel you have to pay a small fortune for a great sounding quality built instrument you might better rethink this one and give it a shot you won't be sorry.
    How are you doing this MonoPrice? Who are you getting to build these guitars? they a top notch.
    By the way I bought this "California Classic" and the "Route 66" and both are equally as good in their own distinctive ways.
    For those of you on the fence come on over you will not regret this purchase, if you can't tell I am mind boggled in how in the world MonoPrice can produce, sell and make a profit on such a nice guitar this is no el cheapo like you find on auction sites and pawn shops trust me I know.

    PROS: Beautiful Guitar(Finish)not a bad spot nowhere on the guitar, Quality build, parts and sound.
    These guitars have it all, I have some very expensive guitars and equipment and this guitar is no slouch or sacrifice to any of my other instruments.
    Beautiful craftsmanship.
    Basswood sounds brillent with great tones and undertones.
    Maple Neck and Rosewood Fretboard.
    Triple pick-guard

    CONS: Strings are not the best and I will replace the Nut with a Tusq®.
    Included pick sucks

    PROS: Great sound for the price. I purchased this as a starter guitar for my kids and myself to learn on.

    Others have stated, how can they do this for $90? I agree with the sentiment, hard to imagine this quality for under $100. I honestly could imagine this guitar at $250 or more. The pickups sound decent if a bit thin but you can find a cheap used Lce Sensor or similar for $30-40. Strings need replacing immediately and have a decent pick before you play, the pick it comes with is a throw-away (it grabs the string and is not playable).

    You can't go wrong here.

    PROS: Solid construction, good tone, better than average playability

    CONS: Noisy pickups, a little thin, stock strings are cheap

    My third purchase
    If you been holding off on buying a guitar, don't look no more, cause these are top of the line for the money. You can buy a Squire, AS, Xaviere or other low end guitar, and it won't be as sweet as these already set-up for you so you can start playing now.

    PROS: This guitar is every bit as perfect as the other two I bought. Beautiful white finish and is set up better than my high dollar guitars. I am sold on monoprice guitars and intend on getting more of them for my grandkids.

    CONS: None in my book. I'd like to see monoprice come out with hardshell cases for these guitars. I like my guitars in a nice case and sometimes the case will cost as much as the guitar or more. All 52 of guitars I have are in hard cases even these monoprice babies.

    Great deal
    I was really surprised by the quality of this guitar. The action is great. Other than needing a quick tune, it was ready to go out of the box.

    California Classic Guitar
    I never write reviews, but today I feel compelled.
    I am very happy with this guitar purchase. The quality of construction and the paint is perfect. You could spend hundreds of dollars more for a guitar that does not match this quality. Nice touch with the inclosed certificate of personal care. I will buy more of these just to have around the house.

    PROS: Price is unmatched for this quality.
    Sound is great for my application.
    Paint color and application is excellent.
    Plays a lot better than expected.

    good value for the money

    CONS: none so far
    June 10, 2016
    Overall, great purchase. Feels great in my hands and looks stellar on the wall.

    PROS: I love this guitar. Classic styling and really solid. Still can't believe the quality level at such a great price.

    CONS: Need to change out the strings and reset a few things. Low E is a bit jangly and seems to slip out of tune pretty easily.

    Amazing Value And Quality
    A great guitar for the price. I don't believe I've seen a unit this good at hundreds more in cost. I highly recommend this guitar. Price and Value Can't be beat.

    PROS: Finish was flawless, Neck perfectly straight, Setup was right on, All electronics worked great. I have several other quitars that I paid hundreds more for that doesnt look and play as good as this one.

    CONS: None
