I was looking for a First Act Nickelodeon Sponge Bob guitar for my grandson around Christmas time. Unable to find one anywhere I went to First Act's website. They are out of stock too! While browsing their website I looked around their guitar section just to check out their offerings. Since I own a First Act Garage Master guitar I'm familiar with the quality and sound. I had seen their Lola and Sheena custom guitars before but not the lower end model. When I saw the Lola CE120 AND the advertised price I was floored! "It can't be" I thought. They had the guitar listed, and still do; at $79.99 plus shipping. I thought it was a misprint but and all three available colors the price was the same. I read the description about the item and it's made of a basswood body with thru-the-body strings, maple neck, and rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays. It has a single humbucker pickup with Alnico V magnets, and separate tone and volume chrome bubble knobs and sealed chrome tuning machine heads. All this for $79.99. I figured, "what the heck. Let's order one." Since I ordered right around Christmas time and selected normal shipping, the guitar arrived the first week of January. I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of this guitar. I see them listed for three to four times the price I paid and even at those prices this guitar is well worth the money. I took it out of the box and checked the tuning and I was ready to go. The factory setup was superb! The action, and intonation were right on. The sound is somewhat in between a Fender Stratocaster and a Gibson LP. Funky, crunchy tones with classic rock and oldies. Roy Orbison's Pretty Woman, The Beatles Day Tripper, and Wild Cherry's Play that funky music sound just like the artists intended it to sound. The LOLA is part of First Act's SFA and Limited Edition guitars. SFA stands for "Specially For Artists". The Limited Edition Lola is $1500.00 and comes with dual humbucker pickups, mahogany body, and more upscale refinements that rival the major brands. It's a shame First Act is regarded first as a toy maker and second as a guitar maker. Sure they sell lots of toys and entry level guitars at Toys "r" Us, and other department stores, but their SFA and Limited Edition guitars would look right at home next to the big names at Guitar Center or your local music store. Check them out if you're in the market for an inexpensive, well made quality intrument.
