If you guys are free, please help me out. I have this subject called 'Design and Technology' in where I live and it will affect my GSCE O Levels grade. Thanks in advance. If I posted this in the wrong thread, I apologise in advance.

Okay guys, I have a confession to make. Not really a confession since it's something that's been bugging me for awhile but I've always been in denial about it.

**** you gilly, it's not what you think

I'm sorry to say this but that survey is really, really bad from a researchers point of view.

For example, question 3. Do you mean ...-style guitars? Like if I own a guitar shaped like a Strat, does that count as a Stratocaster? Or does it have to be a Fender Stratocaster?

Question 4; I buy a guitar when I feel like I need something new. Not because it has been 3 months since I bought a new one. Weird question.

Question 5; Not a good question. 'expensive' is subjective. Whether I find a guitar expensive depends on the quality and features. $500 for a starter guitar is expensive, but $500 for a quality custom made guitar is cheap as hell.

Question 9/10; What do you mean? I can change the pickups on most, if not all, guitars. Does that count as interchangable parts? You can change the neck pretty easy if it's bolt on, same with the bridge etc.

Nevertheless, I filled it out as good as I could, hope it helps you

The Dan Armstrong plexiglass guitars had this feature. And with the quick connect plug on EMGs they are easy to swap too.

EDIT: Question 3 is a bit tricky. Ive got an LTD Viper (pretty much an sg copy), No name Strat and Tele copies, an Ibanez Les Paul and an RG370DXL which I guess could be classed as a "fat-strat". None of these are the models listed but are so close I'm gonna have to tick them all.

Liking it wasn't one of the original criteria, you can't move the goalposts like that!

Check out the Seymour Duncan Liberator. Its not as easy as unplugging one and plugging another pickup in, but its a solderless system for almost any pickups.


Also, survey done.

Yeah, not the best survey at all, but if the answers serve your project.... Done!

There are loads of surveys being posted lately... Wondering about all of the results.

Thanks guys! And interesting points right there... I never thought about it. Changing it now though... You guys will have to do it again. So I'll probably stick to this one. Thanks!
You guys are awesome.

How often you buy a guitar isn't broad enough. You think the least frequently people buy guitars is 2 years???? At that rate I'd own 15 guitars!

Are you a guitarist? Questions were pretty wack.

And I felt discriminated against for owning 4 superstrats and no "traditional" shapes

The "How often do you buy new guitars" question needs "almost never" as a choice. I've had the same two guitars for about 6 years now.

"Do you find guitars in the market today expensive" is a kind of whack question. There's $99 guitars and there's $7,000 guitars. There's $1,500 Gibson factory models and $900 hand made custom luthier guitars. There's no way to answer this question with a yes or no.

And lastly... an interchangeable bridge system would be an absolute nightmare for tuning and sustain. It would have to be so rock solidly engineered...

I find the whole idea of interchangeable parts wacky. We spend hours setting up our guitars so they play to perfection and then we are going to swap parts and do it all over again? Dumbest idea I've heard for a long time. And interchangeable headstocks? Wtf for? What's that supposed to achieve?
