Enjoyable first guitar... helps you learn how guitars work
I've enjoyed my Les Paul 100, but it's quickly deteriorating. I don't know much about guitars, so it is helping me learn, because I've had to replace a number of elements, including the tabs for the straps, the jack plate, and it didn't take long before the neck warped and I got a constant buzzing on many of the frets. I've had at least 3 screws strip in the body and the nobs had to be re-secured after they fell off. So far, I've only gotten the opportunity to meet a repair guy once, but it feels like it's only a matter of time before we are obligated to go to each other's childrens birthday parties. I've nick-named my rig, the "Cavalier," after the mid-eighties four wheeled disaster from Chevrolet. "Scud" could also work.
