Has anyone tried any Jay Tursers? They've got two models I like:
The Surfmaster:

And the Univox copy, which I don't but I don't like the gold:

I have a Jay Turser strat type copy. They are very light weight and play well.
The only problem is the electronics and hardware are kind of flimsy. If you get one, you may end up eventually replacing jacks switches and fixing a loose wire.
These are small problems because the price is low and the guitar is made pretty well for an inexpensive copy.
The pickups sound very good.

Try not to pay too much for it,that's all.
A  man studies and learns all of his  life, and  attains wisdom only when he finds that  he knows much and understands nothing.
