    Retro Vision Solid Body Electric Guitar - Sunburst

    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.

    Potential to be a great guitar

    Pros: Sounds great
    Looks good
    Feels good
    Excellent value

    Cons: broken nut after 1 week. A lot of buzz, but that might be from the nut.

    First, I'm an intermediate player and I've been playing about 15 years. I own several USA guitars but sick of paying a premium every time. This Retrovision guitar arrived packaged well with no visible flaws. I just had to tune three strings and I was playing! Sound is great, body looks perfect, and the tuners work well. Actually, I am amazed at how great this guitar sounds. The fretboard was pretty dusty, but wiped if off and applied a bit of fretboard oil and it looks great.

    There is a problem however. I noticed annoying fret buzz only on high e string on frets 3-6, and also a "twang" on the open b and e. I did every adjustment to try to fix the buzz, but it would not go away unless I raised the action super high. I started to examine the nut and saw it was cracked! Then while restringing, the nut broke between the b and e string and a piece fell out. So that would explain the twanging sound and it might explain the buzz (if the cracked nut was vibrating on those notes).

    I would give the guitar 5 stars if I didn't have this issue with the nut, it needs to be repaired.

    Superb, Great Value

    Pros: Quality, Build, Finish, Sound, Playability

    Cons: None at this price (and none even if I'd paid a few hundred more!)

    In my experience, all the Monoprice products I have purchased are of the highest quality and unbelievable value. This is the case with this guitar. I havwe a lot of guitars (from the very expensive, $5,000ish down to the very cheap). I bought this just to see what it was like, and honestly I was expecting it would be good because of my previous experience with Monoprice. I wasn't disappointed. This guitar is so much better than other guitars in this price range and compares favourably with guitars costing quite a bit more. The finish is great. The guitar plays really well. I've had it for about a year now, and no issues at all. I show it to friends and they can't believe how much it cost. But then again, this is par for the course with Monoprice products. If you're thinking of it, I highly recommend this guitar, I don't think you'll be disappointed, quite the opposite.

    Great guitar

    Pros: Awesome color, sound and feel. Almost in tune right out of the box.

    Cons: None

    This is my 5th guitar from monoprice. They all are an excellent value. Great action and sound. Had to send this one back because of a bent tone knob. Unfortunately it was back ordered. But as soon as it came in, they sent it to me. Great customer service.

    Nice looking guitar, but not the best playing guitar

    Pros: Great looking guitar
    Nice sunburst
    Updated "M" logo

    Cons: Sharp frets
    Lack of bass response
    Not the best looking rosewood on the fingerboard

    I am thoroughly impressed with the sunburst on this guitar. The "M" logo is also a nice improvement over the original design. The controls are smooth and quiet. I am amazed Monoprice is able to sell these at this price-point. What I don't like about the guitar is the fretboard. The frets are sharp and have cut up my fingers on more than one occasion. I find it hard to believe that this guitar was inspected for play-ability because this one should not have passed. I was going to buy the Strat type guitar, but after slicing up my fingers, I'm more reluctant. Also, there seems to be a lack of bass in the guitar. When I hammer on the bass strings, I can barely even hear the notes I'm playing. I can foresee replacing the pickups, after getting the frets fixed.

    Pros: Beautiful color, not heavy, sounds really good. If I get a bonus this year, I will probably buy another one!

    Cons: None

    Arrived in great condition. Well packaged and protected from cold weather and damage. 3 strings needed tuning, the other 3 were almost spot on!
