Topic starter  

I am wanting to purchase a new guitar and learn how to play. I have fallen in love with the Jay Turser Les Paul JT-220 model. Looking for opinions from people who know about guitars as to whether this is a good quality guitar and if it is a good one for a beginner. I have read some reviews online, and they are all positive, but they also sound like they were all written by the same person. Any comments would help. Thanks!

Well, from the Jay Turser website, you get

Alder body, contoured flame maple top
Set neck, rosewood fingerboard
regular LP looaklike pick guard
and a pair of humbuckers

and it looks just like a regular LP clone, so unless the workmanship's a bit defective you probably can't go that far wrong. Make sure you ask the shop to do a proper setup on it before you part with cash.

Seems like a nice guitar. May I just offer Rondo Music up as an alternative with their Agile AL2000?

There is a demo video on the page and they come in alot of different flavors. I own 3 of them, an AL 2000, an AL 2500 and an AL3000. I love them all.
