Retro Vision Solid Body Electric Guitar - Metallic Blue

With the versatility to play classic country, rock, blues, and jazz tones, you can make this Retro Vision Solid Body Electric Guitar the workhorse of your collection!

This full-sized, 22-fret, single cutaway electric guitar features two single-coil pickups and is capable of producing a wide range of tones. With the bridge pickup, you can get that bright, rich, cutting tone known as the country "twang" made famous by artists such as Merle Haggard and Waylon Jennings. With the neck pickup you get a warmer, mellow, bluesy tone, such as that of Albert Collins or Muddy Waters. Additionally, rock musicians as diverse as Syd Barrett, Chrissy Hynde, and Keith Richards have found a way to make their own distinctive sound using this style of guitar.

The guitar is constructed with a basswood body, bolt-on maple neck, and rosewood fretboard. It features locking tuners and is strung using Monoprice's coated-steel strings (light, 0.010"). The chrome volume and tone knobs are accompanied by a three-position switch, which lets you select the neck or bridge pickup, or both.

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. Additionally, it comes with everything you need to get started, including strings (installed), a heavy-duty zippered black gig bag with shoulder strap, and a truss-rod wrench.

Pros: Locking tuners
Solid good feeling construction
Good feel
Reasonably good setup at arrival

Cons: strings (but who cares, they are consumables)
Frets needed a little smoothing out, but I've had this same issue with $3000 Taylors. Not a big deal.

I've got a lot of quality expensive electrics (Gibson Les Paul Std, Fender Strats), and acoustics (Taylors) and I'm willing to pay premium prices ( $2K) for quality guitars.

I bought this on an impulse because I don't have a Fender Telecaster. I've had some cheap copies of strats before (even the chinese fender versions) which I don't think to highly of.

But I was amazed at how nice this guitar is. Nice heavy/sturdy feel.. Fingerboard is nice and setup is good, no buzzing frets. I did pull the strings off and smoothed out the frets a little, but it was fine as delivered. Nice finish on guitar. And was surprised at the locking tuners as this is the first thing I put on when I get a new guitar. For $130 I don't know how you go wrong as this is a deal.

Pros: Love, love, love this guitar, especially for less then 132.00 dollars, fit and finish are very good, smooth neck, locking tuners work well, and for playing rocksmith, while i learn to play, this guitar is perfect.

Cons: none so far, ask me again in a month or three, gig bag is kind of a joke, but hey, if its free, its for me.....

Pros: Looks, feel, playability, price

Cons: gig bag

So after much deliberating I decided to bite the bullet and try a Monoprice guitar. The day I ordered it, I was dropping off another guitar to be setup and I mentioned to the luthier that I just bought a $105 guitar from Monoprice. He laughed and said, good luck with that. I said yeah, you're probably right, but I can always return it.

The next day the guitar arrived and much to my surprise it looked, felt and played awesome. Not as good as an American made $1,600 Tele (of course), but way better than a Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster which sell for $379. It's weight feels right, and the neck is smooth. The locking tuners are pretty good and do a nice job of keeping it in tune. The finish looks better than I though it would honestly and the pickups are better than decent.

Overall I'd say it's impossible to find a better guitar for $100 or even $200. I'm going to order the "Route 66 Modern" next. Good going Monoprice!

The only con is the included gig bag is a joke. It provides no protection and I just threw it away. I think Monoprice should either include a bag with more padding or just an option to buy without the bag for $5 less.
