Zen-on and feel not only nostalgic but also a sense of longing, when really in our hearts we know that these guitars feel awkward to play, are impossible to set up and keep in tune, and generally play like a dog? It's even more remarkable that there are people selling these for quite respectable sums of money, and that other people are parting with good wadges of cash for them.
I hear a lot of younger people complaining about entry-level, budget guitars and even some mid-price instruments as being "pieces of shit" but these guys just don't know they are born. They never had to put up with terrible planks like this Zen-on. There are so many very playable good quality cheap guitars being offered today that we would've given our right arms for when I was a kid.
But despite all that, I still LIKE the Zen-on. I can't really think why. (Let's face it, that bridge is never going to intonate properly). Maybe it could re-create that garage band sound.
Currently listed on eBay with a Buy It Now price of $449.99.
