…which of course I don't. But I was reading a review in Guitar Player Magazine (aka Heroin User Mag) about a Slick SL56. The review basically said, "this is a crazy value for what appears to be a cheap guitar". I mean, come on, a P90 in the neck and a Tele at the wraparound brass bridge? Semi hollow body? It was too wacky to just pass by.

So five minutes later, I'm pushing the "buy now" button on their website. And so that smelly doesn't need to ask, their return policy is 60 days.

Nice Fenson. Intonation looks tricky but you probably don't care about that.

Cute.

Let us know how the return process goes.

If you're looking for cheap fun, there are some really cool things coming out of China these days, with roasted maple necks and nice stainless steel frets.

Like this one:



How about this badboy for $257.21? Give us a tone report!



Want something a little different, like this Guild import?



Want a semi-hollow Tele with P-90s, dirt cheap and with a return policy?
Got you covered at $175.



Or how about with an offset body with a wrap around bridge that is adjustable...for 187?



Perhaps a PRS clone with P-90s and whammy bar?



Hey, you don't have a "Red Special", do you? You need one...at $266.00!



Do you still have that resonator? How about this one for $222?



A 12 string Ric clone maybe?



Buy them all! We want Tone Reports! I would, but I FINALLY beat my GAS a couple of years ago.

Seriously Moosie...good luck with the new Slick guitar!...
....sorry if I kicked up your GAS!

I'm actually quite particular about intonation, which is why I was really hesitant to buy my PRS Vela Semi Hollow Body. My fears proved to be unfounded.

And what is a Fenson?

Yeah, there's no way a guy like you is NOT particular about intonation! Do you still have the Vela?

Ah crap… I typed "Vela" but I meant "Mira". Probably because I've been looking at the Velas because I love my Mira so much.

And yes definitely I still have the Mira.

Give the seller a break this time, return it using your drone.

BTW the intonation remark was a joke. It think stop bridge do look tricky to adjust.

Purple Rain!...noice...let us know how you end up liking it. Slick is a side brand of Guitar Fetish, and they've been building guitars for a long time now. I've never played a Slick guitar though and am curious as to how they actually play and sound.

This guy has the same model Guild I have. But his has binding around the body. Mine doesnt. His pickups look (and sound) cheesy. Those arent stock. I have a Duncan Distortion and a Bill Lawrence L500XL. He's got a Kahler too.

Yeah, he sounds brutal and plays even more brutally.
I know you play WAY better, and I hope your guitar doesn't sound like a buzz saw through glass shards, like his does. \:D

I think in another video, he mentioned that guitar wasnt his 1st instrument. Drummer maybe.

Here's a picture I found of me holding my guild.

Spoken like a true entomological guitarist.

Make sure and wash your hands before you handle the sax.

Speaking of shark guitars, I guess they make a replica of EVH's now.



If you have a spare $1,900, you can have one of your very own.

Insanely low action

That bridge looks like the one that was on my old Gibson Marauder .

EVH said that his guitar sounded terrible after he cut the body like that.

Gibson used those bridges on a bunch of guitars of that era, like the LS-6 and Marauder, as you know. But the purists, even back then, did like them...and thought they looked odd/too wide.

No wonder they didn't show him playing it that much. He did cut out a lot of wood. He probably couldve gotten a better sound with some EQ and effects. But he didn't like to use that many back then, I guess.

Yeah, I don't know. I just remember reading what he said about that guitar. I'll try to find it when I get a chance.

Eh, I looked a bit and references to what he said are out there but I didn't see a bid or direct interview. Anyway, it's pretty well know what he said.

I always like those Destroyers, and even more, the Iceman, though I never owned either.

Iceman is one guitar Ive wanted for a while when I was younger, but never got one. Now, I don't think it's practical to have one. I can get whatever sounds I want out of what I have already. Eye candy really isnt worth the price IMO now.

I bought that Charvel last year (mostly) because I liked the look of it. Regretting that now. It's not about the money or the guitar. At all. It's regret for being impulsive, weak. That will not happen again. Ever.

Oh no, wait… 8 pounds 2 ounces? 2 ounces over my limit, so I guess I won't.
