S101 Les Paul Black Beauty semi-copy...

Just bought this on eBay for $130...Found they were made around 2005-2007, mahogany body and neck, maple body cap, rosewood board, real MOP inlays, gold hardware. I am really interested to see how this one plays...they seem to have mostly a very good rep. They were made in China by a company based in Korea, using people who worked for Samick..they make pianos, made guitars for a while...they seem to have made a very good Tele copy , too....

The Black Beauty looks like this...

You know, those 101's seem like some really nice guitars. They appear to be well made, and I have yet to hear any complaints about their sounds. Congrats!

Just found this clip of some kid trying to play one of these S101's...Mine is the Black Beauty version, with gold hardware, which ought to make it sound better, right?



Damn kids....(makes me feel old.)

Re: S101 Les Paul Black Beauty semi-copy...

Pics still coming-SLOOOOOW, but I have just seen a Samick Artist Series Les Paul type from the 1990's...it has the same body shape as the S101, flat body near the neck joint and oddly shaped-rounded, not pointed, cut away horn. I saw one on Ebay today that is exactly the same shape, but in a sunburst...http://www.ebay.com/itm/150667583021...84.m1423.l2649

This S101 plays very well and sounds great. I have replaced the TOM with a Gotoh because I was not able to get the intonation right with the factory bridge using extra light guage strings...The Gotoh is just fine.

I recommend these guitars to anyone looking for a LP type of fine quality for very little money.

Pics coming, honest!!!
