Define high end brand. Almost every brand of guitar makes a guitar that's high end in it's own. Even the Walmart brand guitars will have some sort of high end.

Nar mate. I like Gibson because they make my favourite guitar the 335 and at the end of the day I know its stupid but I like it having Gibson written on it.

High end, meaning quality instrument, it can be any price make model shape as long is the tone sings.

Beautiful, and is like an improved Les Paul to my ears. Basically capable of playing any genre.

I've never had the oppertunity to play a PRS, how would you compare the neck. I've played the Gibson Les Paul double cut. Anything in that range, I hate those thick necks.

Wide, thin neck profile on the Prs is comparable to 60's neck profile I believe the double cut has don't buy without playing though.

I love Carvin. When in the stores, every instrument i pick up is amazing and rich in tone. Plus, they seem like everything they make is within reach of the average mans salary.

Haha there is actually. I talked to guy that said his band was signed, so I asked what guitar he played and he said a first act. I thought he was joking until he told me they make higher quality first act guitars. Never knew

I like Gibson archtops, and most any Gretsch or Rickenbacker... the classics, really. There are plenty of smaller luthiers doing interesting things, but at the end of the day I'm just in it for the vintage snob appeal. I'm such a superficial bastard.

That said, my next acoustic will have to be a Rainsong. Very cool guitars.

Yeah, my friend has the double cut and I can't stand the neck. It's to bulky for me, I'll have to find a PRS to play. They sound so jizztastic.

lol...what's gross about an S- Prestige/custom?

Just 'cause you can get them off the shelf does'nt make them inferior build/component/quality-wise to over-priced, vintage knock-off custom builds...

Nice...I'll take that over any of those over-priced strat, tele, LP knock-offs...

Does it matter? A guitar's a guitar. If it does a job well, it can better then any other high end guitar out there.

But, I do like Fender and Ibanez. Especially Fender.

High-end ESP guitars are excellent. I am personally a fan of the M-II, Eclipse, and V-II.

ESP Japan has a lot more interesting models than America does though.

Considering most Ibanez's are just copies of the strat shape/design anyways...

As for me, I'd go with PRS, Fender, Gibson, Schroeder, Ormsby...

I've always drooled over Parker's "Fly" guitars, simply because the design is so wildly different. Don't have any pics, but here's the MF link.

To those saying Fender, I prefer G&L: Theyre more "Fender" than Fender; Leo sold Fender to make loads of money, and continued making guitars with G&L: better quality instruments for the same price as fender.

I have played one, and the tone and sound may be referred to as "supersexmegajizztacular". Seriously though, they are awesome.

It's your opinion. I didn't like the G&L's I played. They're solid guitars, no doubt, but I just prefer Fender.

I also gotta say, I don't see the sound difference with G&L compared to a good Fender. It's solely up to the player. At the moment, no G&L comes to the tone of my EJ strat, to my ears

its nice to see someone who isnt massively opinionated, yeah it comes down to taste.

tat being said, I also like Gretsch and the very high end shecters.

Going by peoples' definition of ''high-end'' so far, I would say ESP or Mayones. Great guitars in the sub-£2000 range.
In terms of actual high-end though, I'd have to go with Fender. Gibson, PRS, ESP, Ibanez, Mayones, Gretsch, all these companies (and many more) can all make guitars that are of the same quality level so long as you have unlimited money to throw at them; however, Fender will equal them for the same kind of money as on of those other companies' standard Custom Shop models. Fender won't be objectively better than them, but equalling them at a fifth of the price is a helluva plus point.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

Simply because there cant be something better than building your dream guitar with as much or maybe less than what you'd pay for a Gibson or Fender.

Opeth use PRS too..... So add Progressive Death Metal to that list :p

But seriously PRS guitars are amazing; a cross between an LP and a Strat while looking better than high end strats(Fender) and not being as bulky and hard to access as LP's yet still having good sustain and thick tone. Basically THEY WIN!

Well the reason I started this thread is I'm rocking an Ibanez rg3exfm1 and I love the neck on this guitar, it's just time for something new. I want a hardtail, I have never been into FLoyd's or trem bars. I play along the lines of opeth, and btbam type material.
I love the higher fret reach, can you get that out of PRS's or should I look into a prestige?
#39
try a prs custom 24, the wide thin neck may work for you.

try some suhrs and andersons as well.
