$99 plus the pickup, about $50 I think. Great for slide guitar. The neck and action are pretty good 8)

Here's my no-worries Beatercaster, now freshly equipped with a neck P90 -- it can growl!

Gnease, I know it's supposed to be a beater but that Tele just has so much character I'd be afraid to hurt it.

my beater is a samick strat rip off...similar to the one posted earlier in this thread (sorry, no pic :( )
it plays pretty good but the sound on it is starting to go. there are more pickup buzzes and stuff coming through now but i have had it for at least 6 years so its done me proud. Just because its a beater doesnt mean it doesnt feel the love :D

I had a Samick strat I got in 1997. I really liked it. It was a Valley Arts edition. I paid about $350 USD for it. BTW samick Makes Guitars for some of the major brands

Well here's mine:

I got it for free when I signed up for 10 half-hour lessons. I was already taking lessons from the guy at the store so it was a no brainer to do it because lessons are normally $15 so it was a deal in itself without the guitar. So it was a win-win situation for me. Free guitar and lessons to learn how to make it not sound like crap.

It's a New York pro and they go for $99(at least at the store i got it at). It didn't sound that good with the stock strings, but after putting on some ernie balls, it sounds really warm and full. The fretboard is synthetic so it is pretty impervious to weather changes which makes it good for outdoor use.

I am gonna take it with me when my family goes up to our cabin this summer. Hopefully the neighbors will enjoy my campfire serenades. :D

A little tale about the guitar:
Behind the bridge their is a little paint chip that occured from when my heavy electric guitar (a jackson) decided to fall of its stand and use one of it's tuning pegs to teach the poor little acoustic who's the boss. I filled in the chip with a black sharpie so it really isn't that noticeable, but whatever, it gives it character.
If you look at the pic, it is that little dot of glare.

Guitars: Electric: Jackson DX10D, J. Reynolds Fat Strat copy
Acoustic: New York and a Jasmine.
Amps: Austin 15 watt, Fender Deluxe 112, Fender Champion 600 5w, 0ld 1970's Sears 500g.
Effects: Digitech Whammy, Big Muff Pi USA, MXR, Washburn Distortion.

I'm not afraid of hurting it. I built it; I modded it; I can fix it. But I am afraid of losing it, as it's become a fave.

Does kinda look like that! Maybe I should add one.

Don't know how to upload photo's yet but my campfire beater is a '62 Hofner Congress tuned down to D. Loud, great sound, plays OK for 40 years of abuse but I'm carefull with it too. Pretty cheap for true vintage sound at the camp fire!! :D
Beater electric is a Epiphone Les-paul (narrow body - bolt on neck) which was my 1st electric guitar & has NEVER let me down (apart from sounding like a cheap guitar if theres no overdrive...like thats gonna happen!)
