They sometimes have to double as highways.
I just like cheap guitars... just like a Zebco 33 cheap and works, if you lose it or break it, just get another.
I think you'll find that 12-52 strings will keep those trucks on track better.
Or relics lol.
I’m on the look out for a cheapy second hand Squier to sit on a stand in the lounge and be attacked by the grand children, ages 3 to 8. I’ll never stop them touching it, but will teach them to respect it. If it gets damaged by accident ‘cos kids are kids, then so be it.
On one of my early guitars the neck/fretboard looked more like an exit ramp.
I’ve got both a Squier Vintage Modified HH Jaguar and a Classic Vibe Tele that I can vouch for.
I may be thinking more in terms of Bullets! I mean cheap!
Niiice. Plug it in an amp and record the sound! It may make a nice ambient track; Sonic Youth will be jealous
That is an awesome photo.
Could be a new way to play slide. 18 wheeler/highway songs on a Les Paul.
Better an exit ramp than a ski jump!
You don't always realise at the time, how much impact the constant presence of musical instruments and home made music have, on kids. It's not about your skill level, either.
Great picture, BTW...…
When you have kids, you can't buy nothing expensive. A year back I sold all my gear nearly just so my son could go to university and have some extra cash . It never ends lol!
While I've bought cheap guitars for different reasons.... I'm glad he's got the exposure. May I humbly suggest a cheap Tele rather than a cheap Lester....
On second thought... if he's gonna drive real vehicles over real Les Paul's... let him have at it. Good training!
I look at cheap guitars as unfinished works. SG specials (faded), ES-333s, Les Paul BFG, and last one was a Les Paul something-or-other with a thin matt finish.
I like cheap guitars for 2 reasons :
1 - They are often very good mod platforms for personal, fancy models :
2 - They are, most of all... Cheap ! Well... At least, at the start, OK ?
Cheapest thing you can do round here is buy a copy strat then hard tail it. You can catch one for about £20 at the flea market if you talk them down over it being dirty and missing a string
Hand drums, like bongos, work great for keeping grandkids off the other gear. I left a set out on the floor and my granddaughter was drawn to them rather than Grandpa's amps and guitar cases. She's 9 now, so not as much of a problem, but she did ask me just the other day if I still had those bongos. My wife also scored her a little toy acoustic, brown sunburst with fake gemstones glued on it, and she still has that in her room at home. "Her guitar" as she calls it.
He’s had some cheap Tele exposure too, though he didn’t seem too interested.
A guitar is just a guitar ...
