Samick MB1 Electric Reviews
I was looking for a "starter" guitar for my
14 year old son. The local music shop -
Arrowhead music, in Mentor Ohio (44060) had
the usual array of epiphones, fender knockoffs and the like. Then we saw the small Samick MB1 display with "highly recommended" written above and a price of
$189. Chuck, the sales person told us that it was the best buy in the store and that he would back it up. Bought it.
The MB1, though not anywhere near in a league with the big, familiar, big dollar electrics is one heck of a value. The stuff that counts is all there. This guitar with its rock maple neck, angled headstock and finely designed appearance can hold its own. You have to play it to truly appreciate its fresh warm sound and effortless action. Its not a $600+ tried- and true from a common name, but I'm guessing this best kept secret will soon get out. I've never seen such quality, materials, fit/finish or design beauty in a guitar costing $300, let alone >$200.Adam Stalhuth rated this unit on 2004-10-10.
