[rant="Natrone"]
Ibanez, Fender, Dean, and now Schecter?

How many more good electric companies are going to ruin their good reputation through making crappy, overpriced acoustics?

As an example, I'd like you all to feast your eyes on the Schecter RS-1000. Laminate spruce top, laminate maple sides and back, all yours for the bargain price of *drumroll* $719


Can you say "Marketing Scam" and "Ripoff?"

Sorry, but I just had to vent. I'm getting pretty tired of all of these recommendations by electric players who don't even have an acoustic.
[/rant]

Those who feel the same way, you can vent your frustrations here. Please. I know it was theraputic for me.

I learned on a 60 bucks no name acoustic. And I pretty much don't get the point of your thread.
#4
i think his point is, why buy a $700 piece of crap when you can buy something much nicer, or even of equal quality, for much cheaper

Fenders tend to be better than the others, except for epiphone, which makes AMAZING guitars at the $500+ range.

But seriously... LOL @ Schecter acoustic. I would rather set my money on fire than buy that.

- Martin D-16RGT w/ LR Baggs M1 Active Soundhole Pickup

Yeah. I think I've been a bit unfair to Fender acoustics because they really aren't THAT bad, they just aren't as good as, say, Epiphone.

Dude...B.C. Rich makes acoustics? Don't their electrics suck too?

From what I've seen BC Rich makes some pretty hideous electrics. And that acoustic Warlock makes me want to vomit.

I've heard they're overrated. I dont have much experience with them though.
I would love to try one of those B.C Rich acoustics just to see how awful it sounds. Anyone ever played one?
#16
Ah, it's just a way for me to vent.

And laugh at the idiots who probably bought that Schecter acoustic because SchCtEr iZ t3h br00talz!

Seriously? I didn't think it was possible to actually sound worse than those things look.

I don't think its possible for anything to sound worse than the look of the Mockingbird acoustic.

I was bashing their acoustics more than anything. And I've just heard that they aren't good electrics either.

Besides, I don't really like metal, so I still say they suck

OMG!! THAT'S HILARIOUS!!

And hey all you bashing B.C. Rich electrics, my deluxe Warlock is pretty decent.... who cars if its crap for anything BUT playing crazy death metal and sweeps.... jazz guitars are only good for playing jazz, right? lol


Not necessarily. PRS is pretty notorious for their guitars being pretty much able to play any genre extremely well.

i've played a few PRS guitars and.... eh.. definitely didn't like the acoustics... and the electric seamed pretty normalish.. heh...


you guys think GC would let me trade a banged up B.C. Rich Warlock Deluxe Series with EMG's for a strat? i cant find it on musicians friend... or anywhere.. i was told it was 500$ new when i bought it.
#32
Probably.....


For your sake, hopefully.....
