Lotus Strat Copy

Electric 6-String Guitar

Made by Lotus

Description Supposedly identical to a fender strat. But maybe twice as heavy. Felt more comfortable than any fender I've played though.

I've been told to fix the volume knob would be about $40 dollars, and then I could get maybe $80 bucks for it. Hardly seems worth it, but at least I know I got my money's worth out of it (having it and the amp for just that very price) It sits in my corner now. Stringless, and scarred from it's battle with the amp. I'm trying to think of how I could get the most money possible out of it.
Price: $80.00
Where Obtained: some punk
I heard it was made in india or somewhere... from an abandoned fender factory. Those are just the rumors flying around though... One volume, two tone. 5 way selector switch. Classic black with white pick guard.
The action was so-so. Mostly the guitar was just worn down and needed a good clean up. I've since played real fenders, and I personally don't like them. This guitar was quite comfortable after playing a warped acousting with way too high action. (not saying much, i suppose) I can't recall having any problems with it in general.
Sound Quality:
As part of the deal, I got a 30 watt crate amp with the guitar. (the amp was worth the money alone, I suppose) I played stictly punk rock in those days, as I knew nothing but the trusty power chord. Defanitly a stage guitar.
I had read several other reviews on this guitar, and they all let me down. I had heard this guitar was indestructable. Other people clamed to have run over it, dropped it out of 3 story buildings, and numerous other things, and still been able to pick it up and resume playing. Mine was in the trunk of a car that was in a wreck (with no case), and an amp slid across the top of it. The volume knob was broke off. When I plugged in the guitar to make sure it still worked, I had nothing. I took a knife and twisted what was left of the knob from the inside to make sure the volume was up. nothing. the guitar is dead.
