    Hmm... test it yourself and see...

    But seriously, I don't like Samicks all that much. Sure, they've got an ohkish feel, but I don't like the wood quality. The tone is pretty ohk.

    You can do more research by searching thru the Ultimate Guitar website...

    But if you on a 8.5k budget, I say wait a while, increase it and get yourself a brand new guitar...

    Has anyone here tried one of those Bajaao S Series guitars?

    They look pretty impressive on paper

    I think Bajaao would be the best... as I have heard of that... @ 8.5K budget... go for a new one man...

    I guess the Samicks you played were bad.. samick guitars are good.. and many people are not aware of this But Samick has been GOST BUILDING Guitars ( building a guitar for another guitar company so that that guitar company can meet the huge demands for their guitars) for some of the Leading Guitar manufacturers for Decades!! So If you are playing an Old Ibanez or OLD ESP or any guitar built in the far east it could have been built by Samick.

    I've played on a Samick bass too. It was a 5 string. Great feel and the controls let you shape the sound very well. I'd say the bass was atleast worth the money.

    The production quality of Samick is not very consistent. I have seen severely crappy Samicks and really good Samicks.. There's one George Bennet series or something like that from Samick.. It;s from Samick but design by a Master Lutheir. Those ones are really decent. I played one of them and was really impressed.. Generally I'd say, dont buy a Samick without playing through... There are good and bad samicks... If you come across a good one, pick it up.

    Ronnie You are right... But then Thats the rule I would give for any guiatr dont Buy it without trying it out. .. You are also right abouth the GEORGE BENNET series. Those are the best Samicks available.
    A very close friend has a SAMICK ACCOUSTIC GUATAR with a built in Pickup. At the time when he bought it ( that was way back in school), Samcik was hardly known. That guiat plays like a dream.

    Hey Samick guitar's are generally quite decent .. but 8.5K for a second hand Samick is too much... You can check out a Kramer Focus before settling on the Samick.. 8.5K (brand new) at Furtadoes in Mumbai and got the floyd rose, humbuckers et all !!
