to be fair an edge III is almost identical to floyd rose and i think it is under the category of derived floyd rose.

According to wikipedia's article on floyd rose http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Floyd_Rose

"Floyd Rose Derived In order to reduce licensing cost from Floyd Rose, some manufacturers further improve their double locking trems that, despite being double locking, are no longer considered a licensed product, but are distinct relative derived from it.
Ibanez Edge is Ibanez's Floyd Rose variant. There are 6 versions: Edge, LoPro Edge, EdgePro, EdgePro-II, Edge-III, EdgeZero."

Regardless my pet peeve ironically enough is guitars that have floyd roses on them. The one I have is horrible to take care of and I am having it blocked at the shop right now.

PRS Guitars feel weird to me. Like kind of like the action is a touch too high but the guitar still plays fine. Does that make sense?

about people who play them?

the idiots who buy 2 or 3 amazing instruments, when they can barely play. case in point, a guitarist in a pop punk band i know, owns the patrick stump gretsch, a mia telecaster, rerouted for 2 humbuckers, a jackson dk2m and a gibson sg standard, when he plays through a line6 spiderIII 75 combo and sucks absolute balls on guitar.

about the instrument in general?

floyd rose/floating tremelos

i cannot stand guitars with all this double locking nonsense, or people who fall over themselves to buy a guitar with one. i know they have uses, but i personally wouldnt want one.
#7
Finding a good guitar and amp is a bit of a challenge, plus that feeling of regret you get after making a significant purchase.

Or maybe I'm the only person that feels that way?

EDIT: Also, not exactly a pet peeve, but I know many people who have good guitars (Gibson, Ibanez Prestige, ESP) but cheap amplifiers, when they can afford better ones. It kind of defeats the purpose. It's like buying a Ferrari when all you can do is stand in traffic.

I cannot stand that so many guitar companies sucker new players into buying guitars with worthless trems that kill sustain and make the guitars harder to tune. Learning to play guitar is frustrating enough as it is—nobody should have to deal with the crap bridges that come on beginner guitars. How much more practice time would new guitarists get if those designs were all pulled off the market and replaced with hardtails with locking tuners?

Anyone who's been playing for more than a year and still has zero clue how to set up their own guitar.

People who think the truss rod is some magical fret buzz eliminator.

People who complain about the "out of the box" setup on a guitar. It's akin to complaining that you had to adjust the seat in a new car to fit you.

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.

It's like seeing people with top-of-the-line skis and crappy boots. (I'm a ski instructor.) Those skis will look hot and impress people, but without top-of-the-line boots, they're cannot use those great skis to their potential, not even close.

A lot of friends ask my advice when they decide they want to get into playing. Two even wanted me to go to the music store with them. I say take your available budget, spend 60% on your amp, 30% on your guitar, and 10% on misc (cords, straps, etc.) But then they blow it all on some amazing guitar and a month later buy a Micro Cube or something.

But, to be fair, it took me about 10 years to see the light

People who buy 24 fret guitars and don't shred

example: Hardcore bands.

personal prefrence of scale length and feel, and it just happens to have 24 frets?

EDIT: anyways, I get annoyed when people have the wrong EQ for the style of music they play, or when they complain about how they cant get a certain tone with a guitar and blame the pick ups immediately without trying to redo their amp's EQ.

As already said, people who grab the most whacked-out looking guitar, plug into the biggest amp, then proceed to utter noises only comparable to Bosnian child rape during war-time.

Of course, they have to play the same riffs over and over while cranking the volume to 11

I have a friend who does this all the time, and then he gets on me when I play the same song twice on an acoustic guitar....he's a singer, not very far removed from Axl Rose.

What really annoys me is people who think that the right to own nice/expensive equipment is based on playing skill alone. There are alot of players out there who only string chords together, yet have amazing quality guitars and amplifiers. If they've worked hard to get the money for that equipment and are quite ibviously enjoying the equipment they own then hats off to them, they deserve it.

If you were given a guitar based on your level of competence than beginners would get terrible guitars, stop playing and wouldn't progress.

I do however believe that Beginners who spend thousands on new gear have a screw loose. Thousands on well priced used gear is fine as it will hold it's residual value, but new gear on the premis that they are going to stick at guitar is silly.

Nothing bothers me hugely about the electric guitar itself. What does bother me are electric guitar players. Well, and acoustic guitar players too, and bass players. And singers. They're all twats. Drummers can be okay but they tend to be rather thick and can be just as obnoxious as the rest of them at times. Keyboard players are alright but usually rather dull.

Jazz players, they're pretentious twats.
Blues players, they're reptitive twats.
Metal players, they're repetitive twats.
Rock players, they're uninspired twats.
Punk players, they're obnoxious twats.
Country players, they're dumb twats.
Fusion players, they're pretentious and obnoxious twats.
Anyone who plays anything which they claim starts with 'post-', they're pretentious twats.
Prog rockers, they're vapid twats.


Basically all musicians are socially functionally retarded cunts with entitlement and immortality complexes with an undeserved sense of self-importance. The pricks.



edit: I forgot one. Indie players. Or at leats they claim it's indie, except it's actually not indie at all. They're the worst. They're sub-human cunts.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

My biggest pet peeve about the electric guitar is when my guitars crap on the rug instead of on the newspapers like they've been taught.

Seriously, isn't this a pointless rant thread?

^ The irony.
It would only be ironic if I had ever claimed to not be a twat, which I haven't. So it's not ironic.

That's another thing. People who use 'ironic' incorrectly, or all the time to justify shit stuff. My joke failed? Oh I meant it to, it was an ironically bad joke. This shirt doesn't look good on me? Yes I know, it's ironic.
**** you.
''Meta'' is another one. Every joke and ocmment these days has to be ''meta''. No. **** off.
'Literally', that's another word nobody uses correctly. When I say 'nobody uses it correctly', I do not mean that literally; some people do sometimes use it correctly, only the majority don't. See how easy that was?



"Could care less", there's another thing. Get it into your thick heads America, if you "could care less" about something that means you do care about it. it does not meant that you don't care about it. If you don't care about something then that means you "couldn't care less."

"Everything is subject to opinion" people, they piss me off too. You think EMG active pickups used through a Fender Frontman and a Boss DS-1 makes the best metal tone known to mankind? No, **** off, it does not. It just doesn't. It's not something that is open to discussion or opinion. There are some things which are just outright wrong from the get-go.

shred guitars that are trying to look so hard they dont even look cool. like warlocks. or 100% plastic/acrylic guitars. why?

oh and lack of care, like rusted pickup poles? why let it get that way?

Guitarists who think they are better than everyone else and know more than anyone else, who are closed-minded, and who have a constant "I hate the world and the world hates me" bad attitude. (*cough* MrFlibble *cough*)

But back to the subject at hand, I hate discovering things to late (i bought a Marshall MG, end of story) and people who saturate thier effects loop with reverb and delay and then play some crappy scale and people think they are amazing. Oh and +1 to the guy who said acoustic guitars without cutaways. I don't see the point in that either. Also, Ibanez. I don't know why, but i just don't like them. The look, the general sound that people who play them have/yearn to have, and the feel of them. I guess they just are not for me. I also hate it when people say that something overpriced just because it doesn't suit them. I don't like Ibanez, but i would never claim they are overpriced. They are generally quiality instruments from what iI have seen, they jsut don't suit me. Oh, and finally, when people patronize someone that is new to somethign instead of helping them. If you just call someone stupid without trying to help, then they aren't going to understand it any faster.
