Why would I pay $100 for a choking hazard guitar?

This image amused me. He's like "What am I supposed to do with this? Play a concert for ants?!"

When the lego model of a thing costs about the same as the thing it's a model of.

A Squier is a very economical version of a Stratocaster.

A full-on Fender Strat, while expensive, doesn't get as pricey as the flagship Les Paul.

It hasn't. not now, even. Squire Strats start around $180. And as we all some of us know, 180 is more than 99.99.

The Lego NES came pretty close.

I don't play Strats, but the necks on the Squier Affinity Teles have damn near the same feel as the Fender, just without the stripe. I bought the Squier Tele because it was a cheap toploader and I was putting on a Bigsby anyway and I had a real Fender neck in my junk box. Turned out to be mostly a cosmetic swap IMO. Well, the Fender neck had the holes for locating the tuners. But otherwise, it seems to be the logo and the stripe. Maybe it's a tiny bit smoother.

Squires have always been ridiculously good for the price.

That said, a Strat with a just-low-enough action ... you're not playing music anymore, you're dancing it.

Players are what, $850 new? Maybe $100 more for fancy colors.

I have the Mega Construx version. lego is twice the price, but has amp and alternate body color. Very cool set though.

Wow, this is very old news.

I'd rather get this:

It may not come with the crater and landing plate (with tower), but looks cool, nonetheless.

I'd buy the amplifier if they sold it by itself.  Well, maybe I wouldn't, but I would want to.
 
2022-06-29 7:50:16 PM  
Speaking of amps, got a new head for the practice room. Since 45 watts thru 2 12s is super needed in a 10x12 room.

Come off it.  You can buy used squiers for under $100 all day long.  Off brands even cheaper.

I bought a first act les Paul junior knockoff for $20 and chunked a $20 pickup in it so I could have a touring guitar I wouldn't care about.  Sounds like a les Paul junior, too.  Better even, now that the "p90" buzz is gone.

Man, Les Paul Jr., that's a guitar that is ridiculously priced these days. A single P90 and a top wind? It's not like they are making up the difference in wood or components either. I don't hate them, but $13K+ for old ones is farking nuts. I know they weren't cheap new but damn.

It may be the sleeping medicine, but I spent a good 30 seconds giggling (especially after picturing it).

That was my first reaction...then I saw it was "only" $99.99 and I asked "How big is it?"

You know what other Lego set costs about $100?

This Saturn V rocket that I almost bought, but it's a little more than $100. I still think about it sometimes, but then I think of all the other useless but really cool stuff I could get for $119.99

I think that's bigger than the Fender. It's more pieces at least. Do the math.  Per piece it's a better deal.

I'll take a G&L Semi-Hollow ASAT in medium Honeyburst, please.

My Ultra was a bit more than that.  And worth every penny.

Came here to say this.

My parents could only afford two small classic space sets for me. Always dreamt of the Galaxy Explorer, though.

I have an ASAT Classic Tribute Tele and it's nice. Fits regular pick ups and tuners, I think the neck pocket is the only thing that's different. I know the other line is nicer but less compatible with Fender parts. A guy at my work has a sister who works in Fullerton and he scored me a killer deal. This color combo wasn't very popular I guess, esp. in LH.

Pretty good looking Tele for the price of a Squier I thought.
