  1. Dear Paul
    I can only reinforce this artical !!!
    I have 15 Guitars and not one costed me more than about 700 dollars.
    I have a Peavey “Wolfgang Van Halen”and a 7 string Peavey “Predator” which has
    the most beautiful fretboard I ever saw!!Highly playable ,Hmmm!!
    I also love my workhorse “Mexico Strat “which I bought back in the late 90′s i think
    I know many Musicians who snicker and laugh about my Instruments,but
    I prefer to rely on my ear and not only on a name!!!!
    I Just recieved a Fender Acoustic”CD-60″ and it only costed 185 dollars!!!!
    but it is a fine sounding instrument and is at the timebeing my favourite !!!
    Rock on Paul!!!
    I’m your biggest Fan!! ;-) )

    100% truth love this text due to for my 20 + years with guitars i have played couple of 1000$ that were sounding terrible + they have some problems with finish etc and some 100$ that were amazingly good, so price do not necessarily means good guitar-not at all. this is great and perfectly written, i just wish that this truth is more often widespread across net or in magazines what ever, this is one of things that can make guitar playing community steady growing.

    Wonderful advice on guitar selection! Musicians can be such snobs about brands, it is important to take a step back and remember to evaluate the real quality of the equipment. Especially with as delicate a variable as an instrument!
