Austin Guitars?


I tried a Tele copy at the shop where I take lessons. I didn't plug it in but I was very impressed. I called the store today and asked them to hold it for me until Saturday. I'll plug it in and see how it sounds. For $175 I think I'll get it.

Anyone here ever try one?


I've owned two of their LP Juniors and they were pretty cool. They also made a nice goldtop. Wildeman


Austins have had a checkered history, with various distributors and certainly a range of Asian factories. Some have been OK, some have apparently been awful. But the current guitars - distributed again by a new version of St Louis Music (who used the brand in the 80s for entry-level acoustic guitars) seem to get good reviews - especially the Tele.

If you like it, go for it.
