Hello everyone! I would like to buy guitar, but I need some help.

I tried some guitars in guitar shop and I realy like RGR321ex clean sound. But I realy dislike its overdrive. It's too noisy and dirty, may be it'll be good for some metal styles.

So. I play some "soft"-rock, post-punk, post-rock, indie and pop-punk (like blink-182). I don't play any metal and hard-'n'-heavy styles.

What guitars with such clean and less dirty overdrive should I try? I have 450$ and it can be used guitar.

Thanks for help!

Thank you!

But I've tried tele and strat and they are too "glassy" for me. I need something like that Ibanez modern sound.

SSH strat, epiphone Les paul or SG, a used Fender telecaster deluxe or more realistically a Squire Tele custom that ive heard good stuff about.
SMILE!

What amp are you using?


I've just visited shop and there were 3 lamp 50, 60 and 100W amp. I don't remember the names...

I've already tried SSH strat (Mexico) — it was good, but too glassy and bright. I like LP and SG, but there are no singles. I want to find something like this clean: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fqG4JoqapaQ

Thanks!

maybe remembering which amp you tried it through helps...


Also, it's more important to know how it sounds through your own amp...

ur right about the RGR321EX having a muddy sound on the distortion. Cleans sound fantastic on it, but overdrive...

What about changing the bridge pickup? Its a brilliant guitar for the price, but with a pickup change it would be better

Slicer666, I just remember that one was Ibanez and another was Fender. I'm going to visit that shop on Tuesday...

DegaDeth, you've got RGR321, but what other options you have considered? And have you changed you pickups?

Mr.DeadDuck, I'm going to try it =)

It's fine if you don't like the way the distortion sounds, but just be aware that it's 95% of the time the amp that decides that, not the guitar. It's almost never the guitar that will make some massive tone altering change. That's what amp settings are for.

Guitars don't have clean channels...amps do.

+1 to ibanez1973, also learn how to alter your picking dynamics and learn how to use an amp.

Offworld92, ibanezgod1973, steven seagull of course you're right, but if overdrive is dirty then, it'll be dirty in all setting I think...

I thought that problem is in pickups.

Not really. That's why different amps have different gain structures. A Triple Rectifier doesn't sound anything like an AD30. And amp also have controls so you can adjust volume, gain and tone.

JELIFISH19, ok I'm going to try different settings =)

It will be great, if it is possible to combine that clean channel and nice overdrive.
