What do you think of Robson Brand electric guitar?

I am just brought a Robson electric guitar since im a beginner ,don't want to get those expensive one. Do you think it's a guitar to play?

Gigi,

I always hear similar questions and I'll be honest, your guitar can be better than most $1200 ones on the market by adding a few things to it. As one person already stated, they have tune issues. The tuner knobs are poor quality and so anytime you play for a bit they will fall out of pitch. The way to fix this problem is to purchase a set of quality tuners online. I say online because they will be cheaper that going to your local guitar shop 9 times out of 10. Here are a few high end companies for guitar tuners worth looking into, Grover, Sprezel, Wilkinson.
Check out a place called "guitarfetish.com" and check out the guitar hardware they sell. You can get a set of Wilkinson tuners for about $25 I believe.

Your guitar is most likely the fender stratocaster version which is one of the most copied guitars out there. The good news is your guitar has an Alder body, maple neck and most likey a rosewod fingerboard wich is standard on the USA model Fender guitars.

The next issue would be the tremolo system. That would be the part where the strings come through the body and you can put in that metal arm to allow the tension of the strigs to go loose. Most likeyl you have a tremolo that requiers 6 screws that go across the top into the body. Again, upgrade to a Wilkinson wich goes for about $30 and have you dad or someone install it for you. Make shure you get the 6 screw version and not the 2 post one. Read before you buy!

The last step in all of this and the most expensive part is your pickups. Pickups make the guitar in most cases and can go from $60-$400 depending on what brand you go with. You might have the 3 single coil version wich again, is a standard Strat style. There are so many brand name pickups out there that you have to decide what sound your looking for before you put some in. There is a place called ACMEguitars online that sells prewired strat pickgaurds wich is what you will find holds your pickups and controle buttons on your guitar. This whole thing is held down by either 8 or 11 screws and can be removed and replaced by one of these prewired sets. You only have to solder 2 wires to make it work and then you will have a guitar that sounds just like if not better than any USA made Fender on the market.

You lucky due to Robson useing real wood in construction of there guitars. Many cheap guitar buiders use plywood or synthetic materials to build them. With all these woods, upgrading is the cheapest and best rout to go,be prepaird to spend a little bit of money but at the end you'll have a wonderfull sounding guitar that stays in tune.
