Well....

I have a pawn shop special. Not sure what it is. Terrible tone quality, etc

cherry red Gibson SG
Washburn IDOL (thanks again, Hate)

and I have a small crate practice amp





I'd really like to have a Kramer Vanguard, I love their tone quality and it's action is amazing. I'd also love to have a good old fashioned Marshall stack

Kramer's either can be good or bad lol. What I really want is a Ibanez Xiphos 24 fret 7 string model. SO MANY POSSIBILITIES!

I can't play a 7 string. I've tried and it just doesn't work for some reason lol. But I love 24 fret guitars. I've actually fallen in love with them so much that I get pissed every time I play my guitars which only have 22 frets

Correction, it's 27 frets lol. I miss typed. I don't mind if it has 22 or 24, but i like my guitars just to have a good neck on them! I found that Stewart Mcdonalds necks are good.

A vintage Fender Hot Rod tube amp, a beat-up Fender telecaster, vintage Big Muff and Tube Screamer pedals, a Boss distortion pedal, and a Dunlop Crybaby.

Fender was my first love. I think they need to consider the public a bit more though.

Some johnson bass that I have no idea what it is model wise or anything though. Sounds pretty ok though and I got it for free with a case so no complaint.

What do you mean by that? It's not shred gear by any stretch of the imagination, but in terms of tone and playability, their low-end stuff is up there with stuff twice the price.

Didn't mean it that way, they are tone beasts, but sometimes, they seem to be missing something.

I swear by Ibanez guitars. MBM1 Prestige is my main axe.

I use a Peavey JSX amp, with an Ibanez Tube Screamer, Boss DD3 Delay and a Jim Dunlop Cry Baby. I use Piranha gold plated cables, Ernie Ball strings and Shark Fin picks. Together it all sounds like a bunch of awesome.

I've tried a lot of overdrive pedals, and the Tube Screamer is by far the best. Really meaty sound and keeps nice clarity.

I should mention that I've retrofitted most of my guitars with Bare Knuckle Warpig pickups...

*looks at crappy first act amp* Yeah I really need some new gear lol.
On the note of pics I got some really cool "Tortex" pics that are hard enough to play bass with, and one of them is an extra wide pick which is great for my giant ape hands lol. They really add a nice tone as well, before using them I never realized how much the pick can affect the sound of a guitar.

YEA , FEEL !

What are you smoking? Fenders are the only guitars under a thousand dollars that actually HAVE feel anymore. I like Jacksons, Ibanezes and ESP's, but they're all speed necks with no individuality at all. Especially when it comes to tone.

A good guitarist makes any guitar sound good, no matter the make; that's just personal preference of the player. I don't like Fenders, mainly because the tones lack weight when I've played them and every man and his dog seems to have one, which oddly enough means I think they lack individuality.

To be fair, I actually like the Telecaster, but it's so limited in what it can pull off and is useless for metal, but man, you can play some sweet blues on those things.

I wouldn't say it's useless for metal, but it's not built for it either.

+ REP , You said it for me .. I play everything from blues to metal and fenders just dont have feel for me , When i was a kid i played fenders hell i still have a old tele but there just not the guitar for me . I own great guitars and even a few cheap ones but they have feel ,

Guitars do what you make them do , If its metal or blues , Strats are a great guitar to start out on cause there cheap and easy to get , When most players get better they move up to a better guitar , I have owned a crap load of guitars and i still have a few but for my money it will be a gibson / jackson / esp other than that i dont want it ..

It's ok Hate, a lot of players just can't make single-coils sound good anyway, so you're not alone Wink

Just... ya know... keep on with your double humbucker everything. They have all the subtlety of a spiked mallet.

I agree with Hate. Subtlety is great, but 95% of the stuff I play is metal, and Fenders just don't carry weight like say a Jackson or Ibanez can. You can mock my double humbuckers all you want, but I'm getting a better metal tone out of my guitar for having them. If my Warpigs are good enough for Toni Iommi, they'll do me.

Singles are good if your a blue grass pickers , The high pitch of week pick ups make you think you have power , When you try to play anything with balls most of the time you power out .. Humbuckers are ment for power and sound . Now if someones a fender man its hard to change there mind because the stain that they use on fender make peoples brains into mush and its hard for them to understand that they payed way to much for a cheap pile of junk . Buy a gibson and you will learn to stop bitching when your pickin with guys whos guitars sound better .. Also if you want a great guitar for under a grand ... BUY A USED GIBSON !.

I agree with the used part because regular gibsons are way too damn expensive. And I like some hot rails
