What company makes the most consistant/reliable guitars? Never had a band ibanez and ive had about 5 guitars and basses. Always flawless.

All companies have there bad apples, regardless, even if you had the best qaulity control in the world, there'd be atleast %1 of the products ship with some kind of fault, and that'd be at the expense of the the company, so really most companies would just sent guitars out that maybe have scractches, dents, bad setups, bad wiring, bad necks etc etc.

obviously


but in general and your own personal experience im asking for...


and also in relation to build quality for value for money. you EXPECT a custom 24 to be right.

Jackson has a great QC. So does PRS as previously stated. Higher end B.C. Rich's are good. Deans (specifically razorbacks) are questionable though.

Hell, this is true. I remember he made a whole new neck because of a tiny finish chip.

But big companies: Jackson, Fender, ESP (for the most part), High end BC Rich (anything that they make in Korea is pretty damn good), and PRS. Definitely not Gibson.
Current Gear:
LTD MH-400 with Gotoh GE1996T (EMG 85/60)
PRS SE Custom 24 (Suhr SSH+/SSV)

Peavey Revalver 4, UAD Friedman BE100/DS40

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Quality control is simply that, quality control. There is no limitation to how big your operation has to be.

Fender (American Standard range and above), PRS (almost their entire range), ESP (non-LTD ranges), Epiphone Elitist models.

I've yet to find a bad guitar from any of those ranges.

all the CIJ fenders have great QC, as well.

TS : Fender & PRS (imo) have the best QC.

Ibanez isn't bad, but all the ones i really like the feel of have locking trems.

Ibanez Prestige; I haven't tried a lot of high-end guitars... (I imagine ESP, not LTD, and Jackson USAs are just as good though)

Exactly, and when you're gonna sell a guitar for over 3k, you at least have someone make sure the guitar is flawless. Selling one guitar will pay 3-4 inspectors for the day. Have a bunch of tone nuts sit down and really inspect the guitars. Not some guy give it a quick glace as they slide by.
