Re: anyone tried the Samick Snake & skulls-guitar?
wow! that's one old samick.
when I was about to buy my first guitar ( with very limited budget), the option was : korean Aria pro II and the samick.
The samick has cool boomerang inlays, and cool paint job on the body but more expensive than the aria, so I ended up with aria.
later, I had a chance playing one of those in the rental studio, absolutely not the best guitar I ever play, but compared to squire strat next to it, I'd choose the samick.
for 150 bucks, I'd say go for it.
