These ain't bad little guitars, but they managed to have an uglier headstock than an Epiphone.

I've wondered about them.
I guy I used to work with a few years ago bought one and raved about it. He was a newbie to guitars so I never took much stock in his opinion.
With Gibson's prices, that's about as close as I'll be coming to a Lester for a while.

I had a few PRS copies and they were both pretty decent.
Several guys I know have these LP jobbers stuffed in a locker at work.
Really they can be set up to play pretty decent.
All the necks are 3 piece...never understood that but I haven't seen one come apart.
I tote my Gibson back and forth to work quite a bit, I'm thinking about getting one of these now that they have a model with a wider neck.

Can you get it with Bul-Go-Gi and kim-chi?

They look real purty. I like the "ghost image" of a guy taking apicture in the back of the finish.

Not bad for $199 at all!

10lbs? holy truss batman! ya think they coulda cut the weight down a bit? i've 8 lesters (including copies) and i think the heaviest is a tad over 9 lbs.



of course thinking about it you could always modify the weight & headstock...

The thing I don't like about these as far as playing, the fretboard is completely flat. Really fast action, but quite a bit different than the real deal fretboard wise. Still, 199 buckaroonies for these is a bargain, no Bulgogi , or kim-chi, but bin bap bin and galbi will be served with each order placed.
