These are what I have left after I sold off my guitars and an amp. I haven't played for about two years and now I thought I wanna noodle on one.
So I hit the best of $200 guitars site and found a nice one, the Epiphone LP Special II in black. Lots of good reviews about it.
Then I decided to look at the best of $300 guitars and I hit a home run. A Parker PDF30 in black but for $200 new. They came out in 2013 but now discontinued. Good specs and good reviews.
It's now in shipment. Check it out.
