Anybody Ever Play A Daisy Rock Guitar?

I saw a really cool looking white pearloid guitar at GC and decided to plug it in.
It actually played and sounded pretty good for $199.

I think we need a little levity today. Still a nice guitar. Buy one for your kid and play it yourself.

Cute and sparkly. I like the STARS on the fretboard/fingerboard.

I had a rock candy custom for awhile. Really kick ass guitar. It's really hard for me to find a budget line imported guitar that I can stomach at all, but this one was put together VERY well. I liked it a lot, and used it on some gigs.

Ultimately, they are made for girls, or at least for people with smaller hands and frames. I'm six feet tall, and have moderately sized paws, and the neck was just too small for to get along with long term. Very narrow at the nut. I like big necks, and I like small necks, but this was a really small neck. I just couldn't get on with it.

The pickups were hotter than satan's coffee, but sounded good for high output models. Sounded absolutely great overdriven, not as nice clean. The coil tap feature was useable. I liked the tones out of it, although if I had kept it, I would have gone with a tamer pickup set.

I sold it to a friend who gave it to his eighteen year old daughter, I believe she is still playing it. We all thought that it was a positive step up from her MIM strat. This was not a $199 model though, this was over $300, and had to be seven or eight years ago...

I would buy another one if they made a model with a larger neck, and if the quality is still that good.

not a guitar but the Rock candy pink sparkle bass with active pups it really rocked! Sounded great and was easy/comfortable to play the whole gig!

I was looking for a used one but ended up with an Ibanez w/ a PJ set-up.

I've played a few.
They are built for looks, the rest is entry-level.

Still, they do have a lot of eye appeal.

Throw a better everything on it and have the frets filed and crowned, you'd have something.

No worse than some of the entry-level Metal-Head Axes out there.

I'm actually thinking that $199 for a Daisy White Isis is not a bad deal.

As long as it doesn't have a pink case.

I saw a band with three or four of these guitars (the bright daisy-shaped jobs) up in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Puzzled me at the time why guys would be playing these girly-guitars, although the 'smaller hands' idea probably explains it.

Anyway, they certainly make them sound good.

I had a semi hollow that came in as part of a trade, not bad but not great, if the paired down dimensions aren't necessary you can usually do better for the same $$, especially in the used market.

I actually went back and almost bought the Isis but as you can see from the picture above the volume is in the same spot where you would put down your hand on a Fender. It was a deal breaker.
