Drive S101 Reviews 2

I acquired this guitar on Musician's Friend, and I paid $70 for it.

The best thing I can say about this guitar is the price is very friendly for a beginner. I will say this, though: this thing stays in tune like a bitch. When I still used it, I only had to tune it about once every three weeks, and that was just minor adjustments.

Just about everything else. The neck is unwieldy, and it is difficult to play very fast on it. It's awkward, and playing power chords becomes a chore, especially when you play closer to the nut. There is also quite a bit of fret buzz, and bending the strings is kind of hard near the nut, though it becomes easier when you practice with it. The action is kind of crappy too, making it even harder to play fast. And the pickups! I had this guitar for about nine or ten months before the pickups suddenly completely stopped giving any output whatsoever. And when they did work, they were very noisy.

This guitar is made of weak wood that dents easily if you hit it hard enough. And once again, the neck sucks.

This guitar is pretty much a piece of shit. The only redeeming factor is the price, and even a beginner can afford a decent starter guitar like a Squier. Avoid this piece of crap at all costs.
