Indio Cali DLX Quilted Maple Top Electric Guitar with Gig Bag Blue Burst
Built on the success of the Monoprice California Classic guitars, these new Deluxe models play and look like instruments that cost much more. The stunning Quilted Maple top makes these guitars works of art worthy of the artist that plays them. We understand looks alone will not make the cut, so we used high quality hardware and electronics to ensure you are rockin' all night and groovin' all day, every day. As always we include a gig bag with your purchase but we increased the padding to ensure this beautiful instrument stays sexy. All Monoprice guitars are setup by hand in Southern California. Setups include having the frets filed so they are free of sharp edges, ensuring that the nut and bridge are properly seated at the correct height, that the strings have the right amount of action with no buzzing, and that the electronics are functioning properly, so you can plug in and play right out of the box! Take center stage and rock out on a Friday night or worship on Sunday morning.

Questions and Answers
I thought I'd get this guitar and replace the electronics and maybe the neck someday.
But no, the tone is really great with the stock electronics and pickups. The construction, fit and finish is excellent. It's very nice looking. The maple veneer doesn't have much appearance of depth to it but its subtle pattern is nicer than solid blue would be.
It's heavier than my SG and I was surprised how much easier it is to play. I prefer this neck to the SG.
The jack is a little questionable, in and out at times. It came well set up and in tune. Nice job. I'll be interested to learn what my guitar player thinks.
How good a deal is this? Couldn't tell you. Is it as good as a full price Strat couldn't tell you .

The only small thing I might mention is that the blue color isn't quite like the picture. The guitar I received is definitely blue but the inner body has something of a greenish-blue tint. Certainly minor in the overall scope of things.

I think it's a great guitar and a great deal. I got mine for 15% less which paid for the shipping.
My particular unit did need some tinkering though. Of course I would do this to any guitar no matter the price to get it to my specifications. I also do set ups and minor repairs for local guitarists.
Here's what I did: The major thing was fret sprout. No big deal...filed 'em down. It was probably due to the fact that I live in the dry mountains near Aspen CO.. I also adjusted the vibrato so that I could pull it up further. Love the Wilkensen! Lowered the action slightly - easy - 2 screws. No truss rod adjustment necessary. I wasn't thrilled with the lacquer on the frets, but it will ware off with playing. Remarkably enough, the intonation was right on the money - which is rare. Oh I also ALWAYS remove the volume control closest to the bridge pick-up. Messes with the way I play.
So all in all a great guitar. Pair it with their 15w tube amp (which I own as well) and you'll have a rig that kicks a$$ And no, I'm not affiliated with Monoprice in any way other than as a customer.

Love the guitar - great tone... gig bag is a little cheap but other than that, this is a winner.

Got this a week ago. Really fun to play and killer looks. Major fun-factor - plays easy and you wont want to set it down. Sounds great. The top does have more green in it than the photos show as other reviewers have noted - however, i like it a lot - maybe even better than if it was just plain blue.
Now, for the not-so-great: it does need setup work: the nut is plastic and mine arrived with someone filing the slots very wide and deep - they basically ruined the nut - but that's OK - I'm going to replace it with a good nut - no problem. Also, some fretwork required - there are some frets which fret-out (i.e. same note sounds on 2 adjacent frets). Again, that's fine for me - I'm comfortable doing some fretwork to get things back in spec.
Bottom-line: you can't beat it for the price, but understand that all budget guitars require some degree of work to get them playing well and this great guitar is no exception.
