This guitar had all the features I was looking for in my price range but there wasn't much customer feedback when I made my purchase so I hope others can benefit from this. Guitar looks fantastic - the sunburst with brushed chrome hardware and overall design are just beautiful. Neck - very comfortable, one of the best I've ever played. It has a nicely aged and broken in feel to it. The maple fingerboard had some birdseye in it which made it look more attractive to me. Tuners - laguna locking tuners which work as they should. Bridge - Wilkinson tremolo which feels really smooth. However this isn't a guitar where you can do divebombing vibrato stuff and still be in tune, even with locking tuners but for me it's an improvement over stock Fender type systems. Pickups - not bad. The single coils sound like single coils although a little muddy. Bridge humbucker sounds generic but is very good. Some may want to swap out for some hotter pickups but I find them good enough for my taste. Bottom Line - glad I bought this guitar. I felt I got a bargain for all the features and would recommend buying it. Have a professional set up though. The Wilkinson seems to work and sound better with .010 gauge strings vs. the .009s it came with. Great guitar for the warm jazz sounds to the shreddy metal sounds I like. Looks great and once properly set-up, it's very comfortable to play.

Great beginner to intermediate player on a budget... very playable, quality in woods (for tone, ssutain) and electronincs ( tone/ volume peramiters) are evfidence in lack of craftmanship/ quality of more well known manufactureres.
great trem, coil tap (not found in may guitars @ this $ point), nice locking tuners. At this price point.
stays in to ok. depending on how much trem you use/ play guitar... locking tuners help but like all guitars tuning goes out from trem. use ( vibrato & dive bombing). Going a little flat in the g string and some time a d, and highe e. is no differant than most non- double locking tromelo bridges (like floyd rose original or licenced) but price payed for virsitlity in more tuning options and ahving to tune adjust afer every song. I changed pick ups inthis from stock st symour duncans: sh 14 bridge, stk-s2b middle and stk-s2n (coresponding middle and neck positions), a tonal improvment... but like the original pick ups... ( don't know if its the pot peramiters (and wiring kit),and / or neck/ body combinations but dissapointed in overal projection of the guitar.even with hotter pick up in all positions still the guitar has sustain issues (have maple neck - hard rock maple {absorbes tone, deadends/ flatens tone/ harmonics} is a high quiality table leg but not for a guitar), but the "nail down the chalkboard" is prjection: even with hotter pick up its a quiet guitar (compaired to a jackson, prs, and two custom fender strats (spoiled by expensive guitars)... but from changeing other tha eq changed... this one is the only one have to increase the volume to compeat even with upgrading the pick ups.
great starter guitar for the price point.... good feel, tuning, playablity. but money well spent if beginner or on a budget. For those playing a while and want a guitar that is a keeper this is one that over time will be one that will one will grow out of.. I have been playing guitar for 5 yrs and drums for 22 yrs. so quality instruments are importiant. even in a 120 w (solid state amp) my drum kist not miced would over power this guitar as I have it set now.

Laguna guitars are great....

By Stephen King

from Lebanon, Ohio

Comments about Laguna LE300 Electric Guitar:

I just recently picked up a used Laguna LE422 for $189.99. The stor I bought it from marked it down from 199.99 for me which wasn't to bad. The guitar itself has a REALLy lite action, Incredible sustain, locking tuners, and a spotless finish. I got to thinking what other models they made and went to Guitar Center. I looked at the LE300. Again really low, light, action. Hot Alnico PUPS, beautiful finish, and looks to kill. I was taken back by both of the guitars because of the weight compared to similarly priced models. I was told a long time ago that the weight tells the quality in a guitar. There is some truth to this. Guitars will infact be heavier if they have tighter grain to the wood which generally equates to a richer sound. The downside is that they are slightly on the heavy side like my Les Paul. Honetsly though I think these guitars are as good, actually better quality than allot of the guitars in the $300-400 price range. The volume pot was very well leveled and the tone pot works/has a better range than my Epiphone Les Paul. The tone pot also pops out whcih is a common feature on some newer Epiphone's which allows you to access a whole different gambit of sounds. Very fine guitars. Yes I would recommend as you get allot of guitar for a very good price. Will be picking another one up very soon.

LE300 Guitar

By tom stross

from Undisclosed

Comments about Laguna LE300 Electric Guitar:

Very good value on a solid body classic design!
The LE300 is a vintage styled electric in the tradition of F single coil guitars, except this comes standard with locking tuners, a Wilkinson two-post fulcrum bridge (like the American standard) and Alnico pickups..

Wow, it reminds me of the Strat Plus Deluxe guitars that Fender used to make that had all the extras for the serious guitarist.
This Laguna is really gorgeous as well, the fit and finish are great.

Unbelievable!

By Zajdeld

from Greensburg, Pennsylvania

Comments about Laguna LE300 Electric Guitar:

My friend and I decided on an impulse to try this guitar, after reading some previous good reviews. I want to say that I am simply blown away with how nice this guitar is. I would pay 3 times this amount and still be satisfied. It only took 10 minutes of very minor set up to get it playing perfectly. The finish is flawless, the neck and frets are very true, the pickups sound really good. The sound pallet is quite adequate with the HSS, combination, 5-way SS, and a push-pull for the humbucker in the bridge. The Wikinson tremolo is really well made piece of hardware. Finally, there are locking tuners, which make string changes quicker, and improves the tuning stability. I would highly recommend this guitar to anyone looking for a great value in a guitar.
You simply will not get a better quality guitar for this price. Besides the finish looking beautiful, the performance matches how good it looks.

Best Budget Guitar

By John Grimsley

from Ft. Myers, FL

Comments about Laguna LE300 Electric Guitar:

Fantastic Instrument ~ great sustain and very open "breathy" clean tones. The Alnico Pickups are a perfect match for the guitar and sound great ~ no need to upgrade to Duncans or Dimarzios. The Wilkerson Tremolo & Sperzel Locking Tuners work great with the Graphite Nut to keep the guitar in tune. I did remove the strings from the string trees and with the straight pull they glide through the nut smoothly. I only use the Trem for vibrato and not for heavy pitch bends. The Ash Body coupled with the Maple on Maple Neck is a very nice sounding combination with great sustain and warmth. All in all it smokes the $1,000+ Warmoth Custom build it replaced, and I really liked that guitar a lot.

Awesome

By Jerry

from Bullhead City, AZ

Comments about Laguna LE300 Electric Guitar:

This LE300 is a perfect upgrade from a squier bullet or similar lower cost guitar. The hardware is top notch. The tuners stay in tune and turn smooth. The body seems to be one solid piece. The neck has satin finish and feels very smooth. The fret ends are perfect, no need to file them. I also like the flatter neck, I find it easier to play on. The volume and tone knobs and pickup switch are great. The strings the guitar came with are usable. One thing must be done before playing the guitar and that is to raise the bridge off the body of the guitar because it rest on it and gives aweful sound. All you do is remove the back cover and unscrew two screws holding the claw. The bridge should be parallel with the body. Then the guitar will play nicely. The guitar also comes with one extra spring, and four different sized allen wrenches and also the tremolo bar that drops into the metal socket on the guitar and is locked in with a set screw. The guitar also has good strap buttons that should hold the shoulder strap in. No manual comes with the guitar but one can be found on laguna website. I only use the clean channel and I think my fender starcaster's pickups are little bit better sounding but it's very close. From now on, this laguna is going to be played while my starcaster rest in the corner. Overall, I'm very satisfied with this guitar so far and it looks well build to last a long time.

Wow!

By RevRandRocker

from Spring City, PA

Comments about Laguna LE300 Electric Guitar:

I took a chance on this baby based on the reviews already posted. I am not disappointed. The Laguna LE300 might be the best solid-body electric guitar value out there! It's light, plays easy and looks and sounds great! (I got the Antique Rosewood version.) The pick-ups have plenty of punch. The only thing that remains to be seen is how it will hold up over time. I too have a Mexican Strat that is now jealous of my new guitar love. Get this guitar! You won't be sorry.

Comments about Laguna LE300 Electric Guitar:

If you are thinking about purchasing this guitar, stop thinking about it and buy it! I would buy this guitar for twice the price on here. Very sexy look (I have the rosewood) and it feels and plays excellent! Could not be more pleased by Laguna.

holy heck im in love!!!

By drew

from lexinton, ky

Comments about Laguna LE300 Electric Guitar:

ok first of let me say im an experienced guitarist thats in a large band that plays around ky,ohio,tn and other place's and has been playing for a while now. let me tell you this guitar is amazing i picked one up in guitar center not expecting much at all and was amazed at the play ability first off of this guitar, secondly is the actual tone of it its sweet and punch and even addicting. this thing does every thing from cleans to shred to good old metal. personly i like it for shred and 80's metal but u could also play from jazz to hardcore on it, also the one i played had almost rusted strings on it and still played amazing and had sustain for days!!! well let me say this guitar is amazing and worth the money 100% dont listen to the bad review's personly i just think they picked the guitar up and did not set it uo which is a need for any guitar good or bad and thats where the "tuning" problem arose from :P it just show's lack of experience really. but any ways this guitar is for the beginner to advanced player looking for a back up guitar or a main guitar really its great go play on and i guarantee you'll love it.
