Sense. This makes none.

My point is just that a cheap guitar with crappy specs doesn't really get any better for adding a 1mm maple veneer and a price hike.

Not all of it is bad. Farida make some nice instruments that are China built, for example. It comes down to the quality control.

Sadly, it IS easier to find bad chinese guitars than good ones however.

Well that one went right over your head then . I was, by analogy, simply agreeing with your point. In that, due to the public consensus that animal fur is bad, no wants the fur coat that you mentioned anyway...

It has nothing to due with quality for me, it has to do with their human rights and environmental record.

Well, we won't be going into the politics of it here. At least, not twice

Ahh. The wording seemed to imply you disagreed, but I had no idea what you were getting at if that were the case. Fair enough.

Here we go again.....

I really wasn't looking for opinions on $300 guitars guys...I just wanted to know if anyone has put their hands on one.....
by the way,because GB brought it up, I have a '89 peavey tracer w/maple fretboard (the back of the neck is sanded to 220 grit and t.oiled, profile is close to a wizzard II) it has a kahler 2700 trem and I put a F2 and 2 C1s in it and that guitar SMOKES...I have about $150 in it w/hard shell case.
No they don't have good resale value, but as me and GB have discussed "cheap guitars vs. expensive guitars" to death in a discussion about 8 months ago, I have to, again,defend the "cheap" guitar. If I have to swap pickups and spend some time on getting a good setup, I'm VERY cool with that....

Would/could someone please just answer the question at hand and it wasn't
"What's your opinion on the quality of these guitars?".......

Re: Anybody played one of these?

The reason I'm looking at these is that I play at church and I want something I can leave there
and not worry about someone breaking in and getting one of my nice ibbys.
Plus, I was looking for something different than a ibanez.
No, I don't want to keep the tracer there either.......
