Hey man we are glad you are still with us
thank you but don't speak for everybody on here lol.
thanks el bastard. pretty damn bastardly of ya.
That is what he does best
ya and for no reason either and no explanation. never had a bad word with him.
My dad passed away at the age of 57 when I was 23 , nothing like your dad passing when you were so young . My condolences
thank you very much. never did get to send out a mothers day or fathers day card in my life.
don't take your family and loved ones existence for granted people. do your best to reach out
and heal any wounds between you. its worth every second in doing so no matter
the out come.
I'm with Rick. If I had to pick 1 brand it's Wayne guitars. But I've got others that are also awesome.
I love: Anderson, Jackson, 48th St. Custom (esp). Great stuff out there.
I own three Wayne guitars and they're built for speed. Real sexy guitars. Having said that I also can do blues with them and they clean up very well. They have great necks with oil finishes, which I insist on. In my opinion it's the way to go.
You get to have it made your way with Wayne guitars. Ex They crafted one for me with an ebony neck plus flame maple skunk stripe, ebony fret board, walnut body. They sound dynamite. They feel wonderful. Michael Charvel is awesome to deal with. A real gentleman and helpful.
They also have a couple of guitars they build that they sell cheaper than the real custom stuff. They usually sell around christmas time.
I thought it would be easy to pick three favorite brands but the more I thought about it the more I realized I don't have favorite brands so much as I have favorite guitars. A great instrument is great no matter who made it.
To illustrate what I mean, I can go in a music store and play twenty Strats and not like any of them. But one of my favorite guitars is a Strat.
Guitars are like people to me I guess...I don't have any particular favorite KIND of people, I sorta choose the ones I want to hang with based on their individual merits and personalities
As a result, although I have a fair wad of guitars it's a pretty eclectic mix with no more than two from the same maker. I never did get the guys who collect rows and rows of LPs or Teles etc. although if that's their thing I'm just as happy for them as I am for me
I agree with this to some degree. For example I wouldn't collect rows upon rows of Jackson Soloists. Although I would probably in the future have 3-5 USA soloist, they will all be different. Not one will be the same. One might be an all mahogany while another one is alder body and maple neck. One might have a flame top/quilt top and one might just have a gloss black finish. One might have Emgs or BKP or Blackouts. I try to make all my guitars different from each other, but I feel if I like something from a certain brand and I find something similar to a product that I have now, I will mostly like that same product.
I like to have variety. I don't want 2 guitars that look the same or have the same this and that
I like Charvel, the jackson headstock charvels use to be my favorite but i prefer the fender style charvels now.
Had a few in the past still have my 80s model 1 with an edge trem and EMG 85
So true , and that is great advice
thank you sir. if I can help just 1 person to not go through what I have
its worth all my effort in doing so. yes, just 1.
1983 Kramers. Beaks are the best necks to me.
Great thread and harder choice to make then first and i agree with Trelwheen above
My first guitar was a 1970's (not sure the exact year) MicroFret Swinger which i still have to this day. The were only made for like 7 years or so by by a company in Maryland and actually were decent guitars and a little unique and not a bad guitar
vintage pre 1970 mostly
1. Epiphone - love their premium stuff (probably keeping Gibson afloat)
2. Squier- same
3. Harley Benton- cheap and nice quality
I can't afford Gibson, Fender
My first Favorite Guitar is my 1981 Hamer Special that I bought new in 1981.. Then my second Favorite Guitar is my 1991 EBMM EVH.. But in the last few years my Les Pauls have become my favorite guitars. I have many other brands that I play also, but I always seem to go to my Les Pauls first..
American B.C. Rich superstrats
American Jacksons and Japanese Charvels
