Ok this inquiry isnt really about a guitar specifically but i need guitar players input on a few things. For my culminating math project i plan to do a study genres and the most common Guitar brand associated . Then, after each genre poll UG and see how many of those who own that guitar play that genre. I did not want to put this in the pit because i am afraid of faping, cumming blood, putting icy hot on it and such.

Anyways, i will be naming some of the genresi know and you are welcome to input some that i may not have mentioned. Brands such as Gibson and Epiphone will be treated as one.

Note: Electric Guitars

Hard Rock
Country (with electric guitar)

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.

Beat - Rickenbacker


Actually, it might be a good idea to include beat in that poll, it was damn big back then. Punk should also be included I think.
