I ain't got one but played the red one a couple months back. Was like £299 and totally awesome.

Oh boy oh boy, this looks glorious and SO CHEAP. I have too many guitars but the only ones with any resale value are the ones I wouldn't get rid of. WHAT DO.

£299 is tempting, would have preferred two soapbars though...

Why did you post this I've been looking at these all night resisting the urge to add to basket...

Love the looks and pickup combination; not so keen on the 25.5" scale, 12" radius and medium jumbos though.

I like that it's long scale, medium jumbos, don't know about that radius on that style guitar.

Can you get the red one with a maple neck?

If you buy the american version you can get any style neck with just about any color they make.

I played a US fallout and it's amazing. I can't imagine the import being too far off. It's a pretty basic set up.
I love these.

I don't know why they haven't gone for a bronco-eqsue trem, it looks pretty close already. Yeah, I'd like SS and vintage spec neck too.

Looks like it ticks all my boxes too for a cheap rehearsal/sketchy gig situation. Body seems a bit small though- anyone got their hands on one? Wonder how it compares body size wise to a Mustang or Strat?

I have resisted the impulse to buy one of these and now the urge has passed...

The bridge pup in these is alright. Sounded like a more chilled SD JB. The necks felt exactly like CIJ Fender's.

This seems worth bumping.

I haven't owned an electric guitar for two years since I moved to the states and sold off all of my gear. I picked up an acoustic to mess around with... but I need NOISE.

So I just made an offer on the cheapest one of these I could find online - even if it's declined, I'll buy it anyway. It's cheap enough to allow me to pick up a cheap amp.
