Pretty neat guitar I would say:

According to google:
100 British pounds = 227.434718 Canadian dollars

thats not a bad price at all if it sounds decent...slap some EMG actives in and the body material wont make much difference anyway haha. Do you guys think that if a person put an EMG 81/85 combo in one it would sound decent for hard rock type sounds? Just curious. I wouldnt buy one though cuz im currently waiting for a hamm guitar to come my way :)




I suppose you would play that guitar mostly on a "clean" setting :rockon2:

Theres an LP copy too!

to be honest, I even like the body shape of this LP more than a normal gibby...maybe my personal style heh.

My....they even have a smoking semi-hollowbody tele!!! I want!





for 228$ thats not too bad lol.

heres the store: http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Wesley-Guitars_W0QQcolZ4QQdirZ1QQfsubZ0QQftidZ2QQtZkm


edit: just got the specs for the tele:
Blue 'Burst Finish

Hollow Alder Body

22 fret rosewood fingerboard

Twin P90 Pickups

1 Volume 1 Tone control

Chrome Diecast machine heads

Free 2.5m Guitar Cable

NOT to shabby at all lol. It is alder so it must be decent. The pickups are probably garbage, but some P90s from guitarfetish and it would probably sing nicely!!!

:S you WANT an ugly guitar?
Of course . It's like in excite bike on old school nes : When you jump too high , you re-appear at the bottom of the screen . REALLY ugly or cheesy guitars are cool in my book .
I want either a eastwood airline map in seafoam green , or a steinberger , or a transparent guitar...Maybe even a daisy rock , but I don't want to support that company .

My friend has a daisy rock. It's pretty sweet.. Its a double-cut. Not exactly ugly.

Kirk Hemmet of Metallica used one on stage in Fort Worth TExas in '96 - documented in the "cunning stunts" DVD....it was full of some weird liquid......it was cool - but he didn't use it long.

A few years back my supplier had some Dillions made in acrylic, they were heavy and more expensive to produce. Since acrylic is an oil based product they are even more expensive to make now. The main problem with these acrylic guitars is the headstocks were acrylic while the neck was maple, the headstock was joined by a scarf joint to the neck and separated easily if dropped.

I like the unusual instead of the run of the mill guitars too, I am especially Gasin for a Eastwood Airline 3 p/u Deluxe in Red.:rockon2:
I am considering a Daisy Rock that's for sale at half price and was curious why you don't want to support Daisy Rock,I don't know much about the company other than they seem to make bizzare colours:eek: and very playable guitars.:D

they look crazy though...why not just get a squier man...Squiers affinity series of guitars seem really nice for the price. Actually, if you are looking for a great cheaper axe, look NO FARTHER....than www.hammguitars.com

the owner frequents this forum. :) and I have one of his amazing hardtail guitars.

The tone "specialists" will dismiss acrylic guitars as junk, but then again, they say the same about modelers.

Personally I think they look very cool and if the right one crossed my path I would take a good look at it.
