For a long time I’ve been waiting patiently to see if I could get an electric guitar for at most £20, then see if I could do it up and have it for the kids to play with. eBay eventually delivered and a Behringer iAXE 393 is what I ended up with!
Pleasingly it’s not actually all that bad, £20 or otherwise. I had to do some fret levelling and that’s about it. The neck is “papery”, but I’d prefer that to a heavy lacquer.
I’ve done two videos (at the end of this page, one with a play through an done about recording). I’m a bit reluctant to let the kids have it 🙂
- Conversion to hard tail. I don’t like the tremolo and the screws dig into my hand anyway.
- Pickup upgrade. I’ll look to see how it’s routed, I might got for an HSS config. Otherwise, I’m all about the purple Seymour Duncan Invaders I’ve seen.
- White tiger stripes. Inspired by the George Lynch ESP tiger and the Kramer tiger guitars, but in black and white.
