Samick-built Washburn G Jr.

Cost me $69 at the Samick outlet in Yongsan, South Korea. A SSH Strat type guitar in red with a pointy headstock. Great player with a great sound. I sold it after 17 years because I no
longer cared for red pointy guitars.

I got $170 for it.

Squier Classic Vibe 60's Strat. It looks, sounds and plays as well as any guitar I own. Takes a back seat to none.

My Ultimate Cheap guitar was a 1968 Teisco (purchased new) for $49.95. It was sort of a strat copy with on/off slider switches and a floral design under the clear pickgaurd (it was not a Teisco Tulip though) and a 1963 Sears and Roebuck's Silvertone Twin Twelve amp and of course an original Dallas-Arbiter Fuzz-all purchased with money earned from cutting lawns and a newspaper route. I used to do (and still do) a spot-on rendition of Jimi's Star Spangled Banner. It was great (at the time). Still wish I had that amp. Jack White uses the same one in his studio in the film "It might Get Loud" in which he stars with Jimmy Page and the Edge.

I picked up an 89 Squier Strat in the pawnshop for 150.00 that turned out to be a winner. It came to me clean, mint, and set up within an inch of it's life. It's the only Strat I've ever owned that stays in tune if you use the bar, and it sounds more "stratish" than any of the others I own.

My 2010 Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster Thinline.
I love it as much as my '82 Squier JV '57 Stratocaster.

i bought an SX SST sTrat a few years ago .It cost about 70 quid .I was very surprised how good it was.It stayed in tune and the pickups were rather good ,not all cheap though quite low powered .The only problem I had with it was very heavy and a pot went screachy .I whacked the pot shaft with a pair of pliers and it wss OK after that.I still have the neck and tuners for a rany day as it was great player and need no fret job or adjustment but did need the usual nut slot swipe .I raher fancy another one though they are now twice the price , a huge 140 quid from Germany .

My Dearmond M-65 LP copy which I bought for $50.00 during a blizzard. The M-65 with the stock humbuckers is fantastic for AC/DC and Joan Jett tunes as well as playing blues.

Just remembered my $15 Guild solidbody that I bought in 1969. It had heavy wear and some moron had decorated it with brightly colored art paint. It had one single coil pickup and a defect in the volume control that acted as a load free pot

My BEST cheap guitar wasn't my cheapest guitar.

I recently got a Xaviere Tele, a brown sunburst thinline hollowbody with the usual Tele pickups and controls. (They make one with P90's)

Incredible value for a guitar I had to do nothing to but change the strings.
