is this a fender strat counterfeit?

I found this nice fender strat on ebay, but there just seems to be something fishy about it.

Re: is this a fender strat counterfeit?

im with you, it does look a bit dodgy, the serial number looks as if it was put on by a blind trained chimp, is that a serial number on the neck plate too? do they carry 2 serial numbers? 1 on the headstock and 1 on the chrome neck plate?

scratches

ahhh
i am a begginer on guitar, and you'll probably all think i am stupid lol, but here goes!
i hav an electric guitar, and i dunno i think im a bit clumsy, anyway its got loads of scratches and dints in it! is there anything i can do about them? please help!

Re: scratches

you cant do anything for a ding, but you can take out scraches (minor ones) with a kit that fender sell, comes in 3 peices. i always think scratches add character.

Re: scratches

Hey Steff,
Go to an auto store and buy a bottle of Kit scratch remover. Follow the directions and it should get out a lot of the minor ones. I use this stuff on every guitar I get to make them look as good as they can be. Follow it up with a good coat of wax.

Recommendations for beginners electric guitar

Hi I'm a first time buyer of an electric guitar after playing acoustic for two years. Unfortunately I only have a limited budget and could probably only just stretch to £250-£300 for a full package. I am looking for something that gives a good sound and I can play just for fun. So far I have found what i think is a decent package at http://www.regentguitars.co.uk/acatalog/Catalogue_Electric_101.html
Could you please give your thoughts on this or recommend another model?

Thanx a lot

Re: Recommendations for beginners electric guitar

the sensible thing to do would be buy 2nd hand, used stuff costs a lot less than new, you get a better set up for your money, as a first electric i would recomend a fender strat, if you spend £250 on a 2nd hand jap strat and decide you dont like it in 2 years time (which you wont), you would easily get your money back and more, strats are fantastic to play, real easy on the hand, they look fantastic too, i would buy a standard guitar, no active pickups!! and get a standard colour, red, white, black or sunburst, the sparkly sea foam red with blue stripes is a no no.
ive seen jap standard strats on www.loot.com for £250, mexican ones are good as well, but i prefer the japs, with the £50 left over from your budget get a 2nd hand marshall 15 watt mg15fdx they retail at about £110 new so you should haggle a good 2nd hand one for £50, look for that on loot too, but of course the lure of the new guitar package will suck you in, and you will probably throw away my advice and go for that online deal, but ive given my advice, remember, the guitar from your online package deal is meant for christmas, but a strat is for life.

Re: Recommendations for beginners electric guitar

I 100% agree with Lee. I have been playing over 40 years and have over 72 guitars. Buy a Fender Strat and ya can't go wrong.... or a very good copy of a Gibson Les Paul. Some of the Japan makers make very good copies.

Re: Recommendations for beginners electric guitar

hey im 14 and ive never played before and i was looking to buy a electric guitar on a suitable budget, and i just thought i might get some advice on what i should get. i was looking at a les paul sp 2 but like i said i would like to get some advice first. thanks alot

Re: Recommendations for beginners electric guitar

: at soundcontrol there is a very nice les paul copy by westfield which is only£99

Re: Recommendations for beginners electric guitar

if you dont like pushing down the strings hard you should try cranking down the action. but not to much or else you well get fret buzz.

Re: Recommendations for beginners electric guitar

Westfield is rubbish how can you recomend that toot?

I see Richard Marx will be on Regis&Kelly Monday Aug 9th 2004. Hopefully he'll play the McPherson guitar again so we have another opportunity to see and hear it.

I saw Brad Paisley play the McPherson guitar live on the CMA this last week. He was with Alison Krauss. Fantastic sound. He won 2 CMA awards.

Price on a Strat Guitar Body...

About that Fender Black Strat with black pickups, black knobs and black pickguard; the very strat with a Fernandes neck.. on the Live Tonight Sold Out VHS Kurt Cobain smashes that guitar, however the body still remains in one piece. I wondered: how much would that body with pickups and etc cost? Just the body with the pickups.

Giannini G90

Hello all. I have a Giannini G90 guitar which I purchased new in 1971 or 72. It has not been played much, has been lovingly handled and stored only in my home in climate controlled conditons with, the strings loosened, since I gave up guitar in 1974. I want to sell this guitar but have no idea what it is worth today. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance for your help. Rich

Re: Giannini G90

1970 Ovation Josh White model #777

Hey!
I own an old Ovation Josh White. The man I got it from said he bought it in 1970. It's model #777. How much do you think something like this would be worth? I can't afford to get it appraised right now, so I'm trying to get some feedback. I know the Josh White Models were only made from '67 - '70. Any ideas?
