Ernie Ball Music Man is the best, but not many people know about them.

I masturbate while my parents are home anyway. Sometimes I invite everyone in the living room for a "family meeting", then spontaneusly whip it out and start beating it. I love family meetings.

I would have to say it would be a tie between a Les Paul or SG and a Strat. All the Greats in CR used a Les Paul, SG, or Strat.

Fender American Stratocaster

Amplification: Marshall JCM 800 100w
Straight 1960Lead Marshall Cab

les paul sooo many people use em


just because so many people use em doesn't mean that its the best guitar....if everyone was jumping off bridges..then that would definately be the best thing to do right???

I think it all comes down to personal preferece, and the type of sound you wanna get. Personally i like the Stratocaster the best.

We're talking about classic rock - I'd say the EB MM series if it wasn't. Definately the Strat. Eric Clapton, Eric Johnson, Jimi Hendrix, SRV.....definately the Strat...

Those are all pretty crapy, but the worst of them our the SG and the Les Pauls, the most over rated pieces of **** in music, they suck, they have limited frets, terrible movibility, they are just crappy.

It's almost a tie between LP and Strat, but I go for LP since that is what the guitarist in my band uses!

Step 1: Buy a Gibson SG
Step 2: Insert Green Ringer, EQ, 3 dead squirrels and a microwave into said SG
Step 3: Plug in and freak the **** out.

Cheapest of the Gibsons is still more expensive than a hell of alot of other guitars! Don't diss it, you're lucky to have the money to have a guitar at all.

Imagine if you were a drummer, and you accidentally picked up two magic wands instead of sticks. There you are, keeping the beat, the next thing you know, your bass player turns into a can of soup.
