    An Esteban guitar? What are they $50? You get what you pay for, and I know someone who bought one and sawed it in half, it's plywood.

    True Story.

    My mom bought me one a few years back. Classical...nylon strings....sounded OK.

    I didn't find the quality of the guitar to be exceptional, but it didn't suck either.

    I banging around on an old Hondo acoustic....good enough for me...and the kids...and my friends....and the cat.....and the hardwood floor......it's just everywhere. I ripped off the pickguard and have the top came up, exposing bare wood.

    Laugh all you want, but it's got a great sound and is easy to play. I get a lot more enjoyment out of strumming some tunes then fuckin' with my Wolfie and troubleshooting a bad cable.

    And I do think that Estaban rules on the guitar....not sure how he is as far as writing, but the can flat out play.
    Actually I think most of us are Dave, Sam, and Mike fans. There's just a small group of people who have strange allegiances and like to get into petty pissing contests that I can't believe everyone on this site isn't bored of. - Brett

    no it wasn't me that bought it. But my grandma passed away last week and my family wanted me to play a song at the funeral and my steel string just shreds my fingers when I play it for more then a few minutes. So I asked the guy if I could borrow his nylon string one, it was an Esteban and it did sound good, but damn thing kept going out of tune on me. My friend bought it with the amp and all the shit that came with it, and has never played it. You know I own an old Aria Pro II nightwarrior that honestly is the best sounding guitar i've ever had, so you never know what little jem you find in the trash can.

    If you want very good quality guitars at a very low price... go check out rhondomusic.com. The Agile line is some of the best guitars for the price.

    Today my friend received an "Esteban" guitar that he had bought for his son for Christmas, He asked me to come over and fix it.
    My first impression was that "it is a nice looking guitar and feels solid to hold."

    I THEN ATTEMPED TO PLAY IT!

    After playing my Wolfgang I was impressed to see that the action was set very low on the fret board until I hit the first C chord.

    Can you say buzz

    This is not a guitar that comes ready to play, and it explains that in the owners manual. They have a whole section that explains "in a 3rd grade level" how to use an Allen wrench to TRY and straighten the neck.

    Yes I paid allot more for my Wolfgang, but it came ready to play!

    I then plugged it into the amp, and no sound.
    "Yes I put a Duracell 9 volt in first."
    "NOT INCLUDED"

    After troubleshooting I found that one of the contact springs soldered to the PC board inside the guitar had came loose. After fixing it I played through the amp.

    My all time favorite sound engineer and producer is "Mutt Lang!"

    I hate to say this but he has nothing on the guy working at QVC

    It made the old gorilla amps sound like a Marshall JCM 800

    QVC made Esteban, and now he is paying the price!
    Or cashing in?

    Bro, what was your in your bloodstream this evening?

    One of the Esteban infomercials was shot here in the Twin Cities about three miles from where I live now. (Esteban is from Ohio, if I remember correctly, and his real name is NOT Esteban.) Jim, the owner of the music store I teach at, was asked to set up all the guitars for the infomercial. Without trying to put his words down in this post I'll simply summarize: "Craptastic," "Inconsistent from one to the next," "The worst pieces of shit I've ever seen in forty-plus years in the business."

    Now there's a shocker. I"m guessing his name is somethig like Frank Hufffstetler or Fred Jones. Nooooooo....its ESTEBAN
    <sound of wind chimes and a flamenco-strummed E-chord>


    I think I'm going to make my own info-mecial and call myself "Don Diego Guitarrez" and see if I can sell some cigar boxes, broomsticks and a pack of rubber bands and call it "Don Diego's Do it Yourself Guitar Kit". What a fucking fraud. P.T. Barnum was right.

    We train dogs for cattle and sheep herding. They're very different. Sheep are a lot like supermodels - they bunch together, they rattle very easily. Cattle are like drunks at a hockey game - two will want to fight: "Who are you and what's with your badge?"

    Two of them will be like: "Leave them alone, let's go see the game." Another one is lost: "Where'd you guys go?" The dog has to deal with all of that. You work them off a whistle. It's the original video game.
