Re: To Buy or Not To Buy, that is the question.
It's like buying a drum kit. Does it feel nice? Sound nice? Worth the Value?
I take that into consideration when I buy a guitar or drum kit. How does the neck feel? Are they expensive woods? Do you they have what you'd want?
My dad who plays guitar and had a custom made guitar for him by a local dude for 1,000 or 2,000 and it sounds and feels amazing (never get to play it though). Not to mention my dad's related to the dude someway through his mother.
Check them out, Moon guitars. They're getting sold EVERYWHERE.
