Once again I must thank Megi for introducing us all to the Shine SIL510. If it hadn't been for his aggressive marketing campaign (!), all those years ago, I would never have found such a delightful guitar. I have my SIL510TR (Translucent red) to hand all the time these days, playing it for around two hours a day.
It is an absolutely wonderful guitar to play, with a great fretboard and a great feel to it. It feels very compact, suits my playing style to a tee. I have to say, of all the guitars I own, including my American Standard Strat, it is the nicest guitar to play. I have seriously considered fitting better humbuckers to it, but it really sound quite good as it is, so I haven't bothered.
It is a very attractive guitar, with a high degree of finish. If it had a quality name on the headstock it would easily belie its £99 price tag.
I also have a TB (Translucent black) one, which I bought with some of the money my workmates presented me with when I retired. I wanted something to keep for posterity.
It is every bit as good as the red one (though at the moment it has old strings on it), but I prefer the look of the red. It was, after all, my first choice when I bought one.
I am thinking of putting some new strings on it and giving it a birl. I have some Dragon Skin strings I bought and have never gotten round to trying. They might be a good match.
