as much as possible, stay away from those Raon/Sta. Mesa electric guitars.. sooner or later you'll realize that you've just wasted your money.

Tol, you can check out ELECTROSUSHI.sulit.com.ph then click mo yung "CLASSIFIEDS o CLASSIFIED ADS" ata.

may mga strat copies diyan, na although china made, mukhang okay naman. para mas sigurado, magarrange ka ng appointment kay sir Darwin, pwede naman mag test ng guitars eh, hanap ka ng swak sa budget mo.

Or sa Classifieds dito sa PM mismo. may mga Squier Bullet diyan na pasok sa budget mo.

Okay ang Strat talaga sa playability, swabe siya. magaan, sakto lang ang neck para sa kahit anong level na player. :)

sx na tele sa jb. pasok yun sa budget at prefered music mo. nasubukan ko pareho yung fernando lp at sx tele at mas gusto ko tunog ng tele. pero ako lang yun. by the way, i have more expensive version of those two models so im not only getting my opinion from those two cheaper brands...  :-D

Thanks a lot sa mga nagcomment! You guys really helped in enlightening me to a decision.

About Fernando guitars, usually saan makakabili ng gitara nila. Sa Sta. Ana, Manila area ako, so saan pinakamalapit na mga pwedeng music stores? sorry wala talaga kasi akong alam sa locations ng mga music stores. Most of my friends kasi wala naman talagang hilig sa ganitong music. Madami din na dito ko lang nakukuha mga info about locations ng guitar store stuff.

Kung Strat or Tele copies, maganda ang SX guitars. Beginner priced, pero hindi lang pang beginner ang performance. :-D

i agree with the other replies..

either fernando, sx or greg benett.. [or ibanez  :evil: suprestrats]

fernando
- wood : 3.5/5
- hardware : 3/5
- craftsmanship : 3.5/5 (mejo limited ang finishes)

sx
- wood : 4/5
- hardware : 3/5
- craftsmanship: 3/5 (disappointed ako sa headstock... IMO.. walang kokontra)

greg bennett
- wood :4/5
- hardware : 4/5 (grover tuners agad.. + maganda din quality nung bridge etc..)
- craftsmanship : 4/5 (nice finishes + good looking headstock)

buying in the classifieds can be an option but you should research first about the guitar you wanted... mahirap kasi in your case, baka makabili ka ng maraming hidden issues...

i know if we get to the technicality of the word craftsmanship it does include 'design' but these are cheap guitars and cheap guitars go design is either hit or miss..but everyone is entitled to an opinion..

..but my opinion is..for a cheap guitar(maybe true in pinas sx and some fernando), im not sure its ok to nitpick it too much..especially design of a CHEAP guitar


@TS you should be looking for one that is playable and sounds decent for its price..

It was down a few days ago but it seems that the jbmusic store website is back online. Browsing it eh mukhang ang pinakamalapit sa amin na branch ay sa SM megamall.

Hindi gaano kaimportante sa akin ang looks, I just want an electric guitar to practice with. Basta working at walang kung anumang defects ok na. Pero siyempre this being my first electric guitar, gusto ko din na medyo hawig sa legendary models.

With all these recommendations, I guess I'm looking at Fernando/SX/GregBennett choices. Lahat ba ng brands na yan meron ang JB? How much ang LP/strat copies ng bawat brand?

Thanks a lot sa mga nagreply. I really appreciate it!

I'll try to go to one of their stores this week, or maybe contact them through e-mail, wala kasi kaming landline haha. Salamat sa lahat ng info. \m/

also @TS if you're planning to do the above,..the math and see how much you would be spending on upgrades, if it is close to a really good one. then its not worth it..especially if all the parts your looking for is not available locally..

Try mo yamaha gigmaker, pagipunan mo na lang ng kaunti di ka magsisisi. Kumpleto may amp, tuner, strings, picks, softcase. Yung EG112 (gigmaker) ko ang ganda ng tunog kaya balak kong ipa-mod (wilkinson tremolo, graphtech nut at locking tuners).
