My dad told me "You don't need to buy pedals or a new amp! whats wrong with my 15 year old Line 6 amp I gave you?"
#4
the classics:
"Les Pauls are for rock, Strats are for blues and cleans."
"Fender is for clean tones, Marshall MGs for rock"
"If it's Marshall, then it's good"
"The Line 6 Spider isn't digital, it's kickass"

Not so classic:
"With a MG and MT2 you could get a good acdc tone"
"Not everyone uses the marshall mg, take a look at this all tube AVT!"
"Why not buy a boss? they are the best out there"
"dumble? what's that? well what ever it is it's not heard of and this Ibanez TBX30 will blow it out of the water"
my gramps: "tubes suck, why the hell do you want a tube amp when you can use my 40W ss stereo amp with your guitar?"

We have a lot of idiots here

Turn up the gain? Scoop the mids for br00t4lz? The one Min said? There are too many choices, I've been given a lot of bad advice.

"some of the worst pedals come around from MXR and Electro Harmonix. look into boss and digitech for real pedals"

"mesa boogie costs too much. if you want real value for your money, stop looking into american tube amps. look into chinese digital amps like line 6. they make some incredible stuff"

and my all time favourite "if its made in north america, dont get it. chinese guitars are just as good"

'get an MT-2 and ur sound is complete...' i didn't fall for that one gladly.

"Nah, you don't need to adjust anything when you switch from 9s to 11s."

And the usual stuff about Spiders, MGs, toneblasters, yadda yadda yadda.

To be fair, to all old people "Solid State" means new, futuristic and awesome. Just like my grandpa's old "Solid State Food Dehydrator". Nothing like state-of-the-art beef jerky...

"Well, this Line 6 POD X3 rack unit is pretty good..."

Not retarded without the context, which was me at Guitar Center buying my first bass gear, and I said I wanted a cheap multi-fx for distortion and wah.

Its controversial, but beginners being told to have a better amp than guitar.

When I was a beginner i'd rather have a nice playable, quality guitar that I really loved to play and enjoyed playing than an amp.

but thats just me I suppose.

This applies when you really start with the lowest rung of guitars. You get guitars for under 200€ nowadays that play very well, though, so if you have something like a Pacifica or one of the nicer Squiers, you're pretty much set imo.

Agreed on having a guitar that plays well anyway, a good sounding amp won't help if you can't even play on the useless log you bought.

I actually can't really think of any bad advice I've personally gotten, because when I lived in Jamaica, I was the only one who knew a damn about gear among my peers.

either

"Marshalls are the only tube amps you can get any dirt out of."

or

"You don't want to try the gibson, this zakk wylde epiphone is as good as the gibsons. Actually better, because of the [passive] EMGs."

Both by people in a music shop. Needless to say I go out of my way not to buy stuff there.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.
