Tagima TG-530, the next great cheap Strat?

Tagima TG-530

Squier Strats are great, but the Tagima TG-530 is also pretty darned good too.

Tagima is a company out of Brazil, and it just so happens they make a Strat that's under $200 you can buy right now. That's squarely pitted right against Squier's price point for their lower-end models.

What's the best thing about Tagima's TG-530? Choice. Lots of great colors with the all-maple neck. Squier also has a lot of choices but the majority of the time you have to take a darker wood for the fingerboard. There are a few lower-priced models from Squier that do have the all-maple neck like the Vintage Modified '70s Stratocaster, but you're not going to get anywhere near as many body color choices with the all-maple neck as you do with Tagima.

How does it sound? Good. Sounds like a Strat is supposed to. Check it out for yourself in the video below.

From what I could find out about this guitar, the body is basswood and the electronics are just your typical Strat style.

Yes, Surf Green is a color choice offered:

Tagima TG-530 Surf Green

...and that's just cool.

I very much like that there's some good competition to Squier in this price range. Tagima really seems to be delivering with the TG-530. If you're sick of waiting for Squier to release the color you want, Tagima most likely has it right now.
