Re: anyone tried the Samick Snake & skulls-guitar?

I've got an old late 90's model Samick Warlock (korean made). Bought new in 96. It's actually not too bad. Fit and finish was surprisingly good. The Floyd Rose trem on my Samick is similar/exactly the same as the Lo TRS, so that's not the best, but an OFR is a drop in replacement I've heard.

It still plays nice for what it is. Neck is thicker than a Wizard II. Good for a very cheap guitar.

I'm guessing the Snake & Skulls would have a similar neck. The inlays look the same as mine.

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.
