Anyways let’s take a look at these guitars. First off here is our lovely website electric guitarcity. If you are looking for guitars defiantly check out electric guitar city.

Lots of guitars under $100 to a few hundred dollars and a little bit more so that is definitely something you can check out there.
Anyways we are going to start off by looking at our first guitar under $100 and it is called the Sprite Rabbit guitar. Now I have no idea why anybody would buy this guitar but you know what, you never know some people want a rabbit guitar. This guitar actually sells for, and we have some lovely pictures of it for you, sells for $79.95. And actually you look at it and it is a fully functioning guitar. It’s got a single coil pickup, a volume knob, you know it’s got everything you need to play guitar if you want a rabbit guitar. They also offer it in, you know if you don’t like the rabbit, I believe you can get it in a dog, or a ladybug and lots of other stuff like that. So if you are into Hello Kitty or something maybe this is the guitar for you. For &79.95 you get a bag, a strap, a patch chord, a tuner and everything you need to get yourself going. This guitar would really be good for a child. So your little cousin or your son or daughter that wants to get into guitar this might be something they can get into. It looks like a toy but it’s not. It’s a real guitar, it plays and everything. So that would be the first one in terms of an electric guitar under $100. Not everyone’s cup of tea but you never know? Let’s move on to the next one.
Here we have the Hadean EG-462. As you can see this is a Stratocaster style guitar with the three single coil pickups, rosewood fret board, and lovely blue color. Also comes in black and red and a light green I believe. It has a basswood body, maple neck, adjustable truss rod, 22 jumbo frets, tremolo bar, three ply pick guard, and you know everything you need. This is a full size guitar perfect for the beginner or even intermediate player. You know some of us don’t have a ton of money to spend. You like playing guitar and some people don’t have a ton of money to spend on having a huge collection of guitars. This is a guitar that, you know what, you have it, you play it and don’t worry too much about what happens to it because it is also only $79.95. You can pick that up and it is a great playing guitar and will do its purpose. You could probably find a competitive model to this like a Fender Squire Stratocaster. I have checked on at guitar center and so forth and you’re not going to get a full size guitar for under $100 and you won’t get a Fender Squire for under $100. You might get one if it is on sale I guess but this one is $79.95 all day everyday so this is actually a pretty good deal. That is all I am going to say about that.
Let’s move on to our next guitar the EG 462 SB-7 Antiquity. Basically very similar to the guitar we just to a look at there except it is a sort of a tobacco burst and you can see they’ve artificially got some wear on the guitar to make it look like it has been worn in and what not. If you like that kind of look than maybe this is a guitar you might be interested in. Again, same thing, basswood body, not made of plywood this is made of solid wood. Single coil pickups again, you got a whammy bar, maple neck, adjustable truss rod, rosewood fret board and fulcrum bridge, tremolo bar, 6 adjustable saddles to adjust the string height radius and intonations so you can set this guitar up to your liking to play as you like it. This guitar goes for the, and you know it is a nice looking guitar, goes for the grand price of $79.95. You know what, pretty hard to beat. I don’t think you could get guitar of this quality for that price you would be pretty hard pressed to find something like that. 8 ½ pounds this guitar. Not a bad looking guitar. Let’s check out the next one.
Same thing as the last guitar except white and comes from the factory with the worn in look so the guitar comes looking heavily used. Again, solid wood not plywood and a great price $79.95. You can’t go wrong with that. That is a great price for a guitar like this. Really nice looking guitar and pretty much all the same features as the guitar we just looked at. Let’s look at the next one.
This is the Hadean EG-491 BK. As most of you can tell this is a telecaster inspired guitar. It has a three-piece body made of basswood, great sound, and maple neck with aged maple fret board. Single mini coil pickup and standard single coil pickup, string through Body Bridge with adjustable saddles. Chrome hardware and the guitar is 8 pounds. This is a nice little guitar for a beginner or even if your not a beginner and you just want to pick up a guitar and get another one for your collection why not! I did watch a video where somebody tried to , you know they wanted to swap out the pickups and the saddles and wanted to put genuine fender telecaster parts in. I have no idea why you would want to do that I mean this guitar is under $100 so who cares! They realized some of the stuff, the fender stuff wouldn’t fit just because of the differences in this guitar. I am guessing that is probably something to do with copyright issues, not copyright issues but maybe patent issues. You know that guitar maybe can’t be exactly the same as a telecaster. For the life of me for a guitar that’s $80. I don’t know why you would want to put genuine fender parts on in that seems kind of ridiculous. Certainly you could swap out other pickups or whatever type thing, you know cheap pickups you find on Amazon or EBay or what not. This guitar is actually $89.95 and does come in a few other colors that you can get. Anyways that’s the Hadean so let’ s move on to the next guitar.
The SX RST ½ scale, short scale red guitar pack. This is a great guitar for kids. If you have a young child, son or daughter, niece or nephew, your friends kid or whatever that wants to get into guitar. This is a great package that comes with a strap, DVD telling you how to use the guitar and maybe a couple lessons on there or whatever. You get a patch chord, headphones, amplifier, gig bag and of course the guitar itself. Since it is a half scale guitar it is going to be a lot smaller so a young child is going to be able to play it a lot better. It won’t be too heavy for them. The big thing I like is that it comes with headphones so you won’t have to listen to them playing their guitar so that is a nice feature. This guitar has everything you need and is perfect for the young beginner. It has a dual cutaway solid basswood body contoured for hours of comfortable play of course! It has truss rod adjustable maple neck and rosewood fret board so the guitar can be set up to make it easy to play. It has an instruction video that tells you how to play and this guitar is $87.95. I have checked around with some other places for a mini fender squire Stratocaster guitar and you can’t find one, and that’s just the guitar, not the other stuff you see here for under $100. This is in itself a great deal for the beginner guitarist. Let’s check out the next guitar.
We’ve got an SX Furrian ¾ scale. So this is going to be a bit bigger great for the young guitarist. It’s a telecaster style guitar with maple neck, maple fret board, three piece body made of solid basswood, string through body bridge with 6 adjustable saddles. You got your volume and tone and pickup selector switch with gig bag and instructional DVD in English and Spanish so Si Senior! That is not bad I might think about picking that up for my kid. A few more pictures of it. You know I like the look of that guitar. It is a nice looking guitar. Not bad at all and it is only $89.95 so again I think you would be hard pressed to find something of this quality for less than $100. For those of you that don’t know SX guitars and Agile guitars are actually great quality guitars and give you a ton of value for the money. They are raved about in the forums online. For the price really great guitars and something to definitely check out.
Here we have the SX Hawk. This is a full size Stratocaster style guitar. Again, maple neck, maple fret board, adjustable truss rod so you can adjust the neck and thereby adjust the action of the guitar. It has a three ply pick guard, vintage fulcrum bridge with six adjustable paddles, tremolo bar, you got your pick up selector switches, volumes for your pickups. This guitar goes for $99.99. It’s still under $100 and pretty tough to beat. If you don’t care about having the name fender squire Stratocaster on there this is a great guitar and comes in many other colors if you don’t like this one. Let’s check out the next one. Update - Sorry, can't get this one under $100 right now!
You got your Hadean EG-491. This one as you can see is a telecaster style guitar with maple fret board and maple neck. The difference you can see is this guitar has a humbucker in it instead of the chrome single coil pickup. So if you are looking for something a little different, a telly, I shouldn’t say telly, a telecaster style guitar with a humbucker pickup than this might be something to check out. It comes in a kind of mint green color and it also comes in other colors too. You can the wholes are not lined up on the back in a straight line. That is why you can’t put on real a real fender bridge because theirs are lined up in a straight line so it won’t line up. But for a guitar like this that is under $100 I am not sure why you want to put genuine fender parts on it. $99.99 you cannot beat that. Let’s check out our last guitar.
The SX Hawk Stratocaster style guitar. You get a bag and a DVD with it. This one has a bit of a wider neck. It has a maple neck, adjustable truss rod, rosewood reinforcement for added stability, 3 single coil pickups, one volume and two tone controls, pickup selector switch, vintage fulcrum bridge with adjustable saddles, solid basswood body, ultra fast maple fret board with 21 frets and 3 ply pick guard. Just a nice looking guitar. If you just want something cheap that isn’t going to play like a cheap guitar and fall apart in your hands and be a total piece of junk then this SX is a great guitar. They are quality guitars, obviously not a $500 guitar or a real Fender Stratocaster, but for the price of this guitar, this guitar is actually on sale. This guitar is usually $109 but it is on sale for $89.95. You can pick one up for $90 and have it in your hands. It is a pretty good deal if you ask me.
So that is our little tour of electric guitars for under $100. I hope you enjoyed this video.
