My Bday was a few days ago and the in-laws gave me 100 bucks! The next day I went to local GC in hopes of getting an inexpensive multi-effects board or perhaps an inexpensive amp. As I was waiting to talk to an employee I noticed their used guitar area and started to peruse. I found an Epi SG that was 109.00. I liked it and after playing I asked if they would come down in price at all. No go.
Next was a Washburn electric for 99.99. It was new but since it was a display it was considered "new". I was hesitant to pay 99.99 as I would have to pay the taxes and with money as tight as it is...Well, you know.
I then noticed a Squire Tele for 79.99! I am not a huge Squire fan but with only 100 bucks and no great need to buy an expensive guitar I thought, "What the heck."
As I reached for the Squire I had to move what looked like an Ibanez out of the way.I saw the price of the Ibanez: 59.99 and took a closer look. It turned out to be a Behringer Metalien iAxe629. I forgot about the Squire, took the Behringer down and plugged it in. It sounded great (to my inexperienced ears) and it fit my needs.
I also tried the Washburn but I could not get it to sound as good as the Behringer so I bought the Behringer!
Anyway, I now have an electric that I can mess around with and it only cost me 59 bucks and the wife did not even bat an eye when I brought it home!
Now I gotta scrounge up the bucks for the amp. I have one but I want a stronger one.
