Ok, a mutual friend just attacked me for owning a Paul Stanley custom guitar that was signed by him (picture below) and not playing any KISS music with it. It is a Lyon by Washburn and believe it or not, I bought it from Target for $180. Sounds like a lame, shit guitar, but actually it is the best sounding guitar I own or have heard from fellow guitarists. My buddy I play with has an Ibanez RGX something or other and I get better tone than him with everything stock. I play through a Crate 125 watt. But I digress, I don't play KISS music but rather hard rock/metal/metalcore music with it. What is your opinion on this? Is that wrong? I mean I heard that Bieber's guitarist uses a Zakk Wylde custom Epiphone or Gibson (can't remember which...)

yes, you should go to jail for not playing the music of the guitar's signature artist. its worse than rape.

seriously dude you did not just ask that question.

It doesn't matter what the guitar is,who plays it,or where it comes from.

As long as you as a player like the instrument then that's all that matters.Tell your friend to go blow a dog.

Totally agree here, maybe you just like the design or specs doesn't mean you have to play or become fan of the artist.

And in your specific case was luck to find a decent artist-designed for a low price. So go and play it.

I played Edgar Winters and a Jazzy Final Fantasy tune (Slam Shuffle) on my Alexi Laiho sig.

Then I turned around and covered the Munsters theme and led straight into the Pink Panther.
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"

I'm buying a PRS Mike Mushok baritone in a few days.

I had no idea who Mike Mushok was until I googled him. I have no intention of playing Staind songs on that guitar.
You know, you're probably reading this saying "Hey, I'm bored, maybe this'll be funny?"
It's not. Too bad. No, I am not refunding you those 6 seconds of your life. So :P

Thanks for the opinions everyone. This person is not actually my friend. She is a friend of the guitarist I used to jam with who is a big KISS fan. No, Bieber is not a band BUT he does have a backing band for his music apparently. I read it on the Zakk Wylde interview on the homepage. I don't care what people think about what I play with it really, I was just seeing how you guys felt about signature guitars and stuff.
#15
it would normally go hand in hand... i mean if you bought a paul stanley guitar, you'd probably be a fan and likely to play his music.. But its not a rule or anything.. lol... tell her to blow it out her ass... lol... j/k

and cmon guys.... you think just because that poor sucker is in Bieber's live band that he cant like real music... lol.... Hes probably a rocker that found a meal ticket, like most pop guitarists...

"OMG, i love backstreet boys and britney! im gonna learn to play guitar!!"
just seems so unlikely... lol... but you wanna throw a few hundred grand my way? i'll play whatever you want

The following statement is true. The proceeding statement is false.

Nowadays, Pete Townsend generally plays a Clapton Strat.

Division by zero?

Really, man, it's just a guitar. Someone's name being on it doesn't mean you have to be a fan of that person. Notably, the Les Paul is a signature model for, you guessed it, Les Paul himself. What does that make Zakk Wylde, Jimmy Page, or Slash?

No its wrong to buy a signature guitar juste because your a fanboy of the artist and didnt even bother to try it before buying it....and your friend is just jalous
#21
john frushiante(i hope i spelled it right) uses a zakk wylde sig wah, yet his style is nothing like zakk's. go figure.

I've got a Joe Perry signature guitar, but I have only bothered to learn one Aerosmith song and I can't remember the last time I played it. I've got a Richie Sambora guitar too, which I mostly use for Nightwish covers - when I want to play Bon Jovi or anything similar I use my Joe Perry model or my LTD, I wouldn't bother with the Sambora for that.

So.. meh. Sod it.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.
