How about a tasty lead sandwich?

25$? Ahh, so I see you're using it for guitar smashing at a gig. Tongue

nah... i plan on playing it. Wink

It's a Yamaha.  I can't remember anything else about it right now: it's not on me right now.  

It's accoustic.  No pics came with it, but i'm sure i can coax a friend or two to part with one. Wink  

Sorry for taking so long: I was away all week.  Got a car! Cheesy  

Also, remember that van I rolled?  They declared it totalled.  We ended up getting $7000 for it though...  Not bad, considering that lots we took it to offered only $3000 for it.  We got a 2002 grand caravan.  I shudder at how much renewing my license will be though...

No no, pics, not picks. Tongue (pictures)
I own a Yamaha Deluxe Folk Yamaki acoustic, given to me by my extremely generous music teacher (more of a friend/jam buddy really) who bought it awhile ago at a pawn shop with no strings or bridge when convinced by his ex... and it sounds amazing, and is probably the easiest and most natural-feeling guitar I've ever played, despite looking somewhat beat up and dinged... some of my friends have nicknamed it 'The Dartboard' :lol:

heh... i'll see what i can do. Wink  

I can't explain it, but the feel of holding the guitar feels so comfortable...  It's like putting on an old shoe.  I've never played the guitar in my life, but when I picked it up, I felt like i've played it before.  It's just kinda weird. Tongue

and btw, no, we don't have to renew when we get in an accident.  But I just know that it'll cost a helluva lot more now. Tongue

::EDIT::

found it on the web...

WTF? You can't by an eletric for 25$! Silly goose Tongue

BTW, 25$ in Canadian money is around 20$ in English. If you(barok) buy decent strings since you said you need new ones, there gonna cost atleast half the price you payed for your guitar. Smiley

Regardless, you can't get a good guitar for 25$. My friend got a 50$ guitar a while ago, and it's pretty much crap. Once you get somewhat decent and understand, you will not like your guitar that much and resent it Smiley.  I purchased a Strat when I started playing guitar, just because it was a reasonable price and I had a couple of friends who had one.  When I got better, I realized it wasn't the greatest decision.

I also bought a ukelele when I was down in Hawaii, for 20$... It's not the nicest thing...My sister got one for 10$..  :barf:

I know it sounds like I'm trying to bring down your post, but I'm not. Smiley

EDIT: Unless you got some grand spanking deal...:maybe this guitar is not what I think it is...Smiley

Um. Of course it's possible to get great instruments for cheap prices. :wink: Just not too common.
Like I said, my guitar (looking it up a few days ago and it got pretty damn good reviews) was given to me. My Fender electric/acoustic mandolin-- around 100 bucks, worth over 200. You just have to look.

Oh, and...

...Pardon me? I never said a good electric. I once saw a (original, not one of those numerous knockoffs) fender strat in a pawn shop for around 20 bucks. Of course there was more than likely something horribly wrong with it, but hey! Tongue Also, as long as you're not buying new and/or from some guy who knows his guitars, it is quite possible to buy a good electric guitar for a startlingly low price.

I'm no expert, but it seems good for what we paid for it.  Maybe i'll record myself playing on it so you guys can hear what it sounds like...  Be warned though, I really suck.  In fact, this laptop of mine has a built in mic!  Maybe I will!  

Btw, strings here cost $4.50-$10.00, the $10.00 for the good kind.  I don't really care to pay that much for strings. Wink

Seeing as that's about the average price for strings regardless of where you are, and unless you horribly abuse them on a regular basis they'll last a prettttty long time, I wouldn't say it's that much of a loss. :wink:

yes, it was given to you probably because your a L33T guitarist. Cool Your Fender worth 200$, my Strat supposedly worth 300$, my friends drumset supposedly worth 800$...Tongue

Far from that, actually, though I wish I could say I am! Tongue
But really, I wouldn't say it's impossible to get even a new guitar of any caliber for an insanely cheap price-- I'm sure that SOMEWHERE out there, you could find one if you looked hard enough and were determined. Though it might cost you more to find it than buy a new one at any old place. :wink:

Gladly, but what would that prove? Tongue

I thought you were the guy that posted your recordings of all those sweep picking riffs quite a bit back?
