Indio Retro DLX Flamed Top Electric Guitar with Gig Bag Trans Green
Built on the success of the Monoprice Retro guitars, these new Deluxe models play and look like instruments that cost much more. The stunning Flamed 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
Generally I feel it is a great value but there are a few concerns. There is nothing "wrong" with the instrument per se.
1. Set up out of the box was only "OK". It was close but needed some tweaking. 3 strings had fret buzz and a couple of strings had poor intonation. This was easily resolved within a few minutes.
2. It came boxed and protected well with sticky film on some of the chrome and the pick guard BUT there were a few greasy paw prints on the neck. I was able to get most of it off with lemon oil and a cloth. Though it is still slightly noticeable.
3. Strings - They're ok. This is more of a personal preference thing. I'll switch to my preferred brand when they are ready to change. I wouldn't call them "horrible" as some did on the older Monoprice guitars.
4. Gig bag - Again just ok. I have a cheap 15 year old gig bag form a music store which probably has near twice the padding. The TRIC case for my acoustic puts everything else to shame but hard cases. This gig bad will suffice for protection around the house but I wouldn't use it for travel or gigging.
5. Finish - it's cool but there are ultra fine swirl marks from finishing. Another round or two of buffing + clear would have made it pop more. Some light polish might help. I wasn't really expecting a show quality piece but was hoping it would be a bit better.
All in all not too bad. Sounds pretty great and should serve well for those times I am looking for a "tele" type sound.
