Topic: Cheap crappy guitar?
After being looked down upon by someone who i now consider to be a "guitar snob", i spent some time looking into the heritage of my old electro acoustic. It is a slim bodied model made by Marlin guitars
It has a plate on the back where the neck joins the body with a serial number on it, a manufactures name, British music strings, Wales and so on.But even the internet has failed me find any information on this brand, all i can get from these guys is how they had one twenty years ago, korean import crap, plywood acoustics and cheap electrics and how they all play like s**t.
I bought my one about fifteen years ago now, although i only made an effort to start learning to play four years ago, she spent many years being trailed around the u.k. by various friends who could play and a good few years in my attic.
The thing is she sounds great, yeah there are a few niggles on her but nothing that takes away the pleasure i get from hearing that sound. so basicaly what i want to know is, do you have a guitar that was/is cheap n cheerfull and/or looked down on by others.
I mean c'mon, we cant all be playing Gibsons and martins right?
