What are your pet peeves about a guitar? I have 3. 1 is bolt on headstock, I can't stand them, and uncovered humbuckers (Just looks sloppy). I'ts whats stopped me from getting an ibanez for so long. Another small one I ahve is fret design. I can't stand seeing a beautiful guitar with simple dots, I expect vine designs and gibson style frets.

The curve on Strat pickguards bothers me.

As do floating, non-locking trems

And the word "by" in a brand name. That's just tacky.

1.Les Pauls are too hard to play after the 15th fret, especially with my girly hands.

2.Epiphone should stop cutting the corners off their headstocks. They'd have a beautiful looking guitar if they stopped.

3.Gibson needs to stop making pink and cozmo-purple Les Pauls, it's disgraceful.

4.Don't touch my guitar. Ever.

Understandably......

I really dont like jumbo frets, although I want an Ibanez so Ill have to takle that, also I really hate the shape of Fenders, theyre just so bleedin curvy and unnecessary.

-People who have their action really high...the other guitarists in our school band do, it's really annoying.
-People who never tune...again, the other guitarists in our school band never tune so they always sound even shittier than they are.
-BC Riches.
-People who use way too much distortion.

Edit:
Oh, and people who never change their strings. Once again, that applies to the guitarists in our school band.

- Dot inlays. I despise them to the point that I wont even consider buying a guitar that has them. I like my inlays to be extremely elaborate, or non-existent.

- EMG pickups. They have no tone...at all, just power, which is useless by itself.

- Jackson style headstocks, the ones that curve to an obscene degree.

- Floyd Rose. After trying Ibanez' new ZR Tremolo, i'll never touch a piece of **** Floyd again.

1. People who touch my guitar
2. Guitars with dirty and old strings
3. Guitars with the action to high
4. Feedback and fret buzz
5. Nice guitars with simple dot inlays
6. Les Pauls from brands other than Gibson
7. Scratches and dings in my guitar (There are none but if there ever was, I would be pissed!)
8. Workers at guitar stores who follow you with the guitar you are trying, and sit down with you when you try it on an amp. (The guitars are always out of tune, and they sometimes expect me to play something amazing with an out of tune guitar that I dont feel like tuning)
9. Out of tune guitars in stores
10. Guitars selling for way over there store list price and their factory list price.
11. Showoffs at guitar stores. (Not the guys who go in and sit at a fender and play some nice blues, but the guys who just blast the Marshall half stacks and play crappy music to try to get people to come watch them)
#20
when the trem goes outta' tune after one divebomb
the fact i dont have a floyd on any of my guitars
practicing and feeling like im not getting any better
glossed necks that slow down my playing (that means YOU les paul)

EDIT: i forgot bad upper fret access (you know who you are *points to crowd of guitars*)

I personally suffer from problem number 3.

but seriously bad switches (ie: my cheap jackson), guitars with too much finish... done to hide imperfections. guitars that stick to my skin because it's so humid pisses me off, too.

-people who say guitar players only play to pick up girls

-Straight black paintjobs. Ugly and boring.
-Guitars that look they were formed by someone taking an axe to a normal guitar
-the little practice amps that come with starter packs
-the girl who was playing greenday on her out of tune strat knockoff on her cheap, ****ty little practice amp WITH THE VOLUME TURNED WAY UP at my school today. I wanted to cut off her fingers and shove them down her throat.

I have three main ones;

#1. STRINGS LEFT LONG. I hate when people leave the strings long at the tuner. It just looks like a half-assed restringing.

#2. FEEDBACK. I hate guitar feedback. I stop playing a song with high gain and volume and SCREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE. Damn that's annoying.

#3. Tacky guitar straps. You know...those psychadelicly bright ones, or the picture ones...or those ass ugly tire tread ones. Anything like that. What happened to nice leather guitar straps?

my strat doesn't have 24 frets like I need for songs I wanna learn.

My strat isn't a beautiful blue schecter 7-string with mother of pearl inlays on the frets. (sounds amazing too!)

it keeps on getting random dents I don't know about (darned little siblings...)

people that play around with my guitar that can't play at all (literally)

when my strings go out of tune after one big divebomb

the person who had my guitar before me screwed up on the holes where you screw down the pick guard. That means I can't get a different pick guard unless I really want to damage my guitar.

when I first got it, a lot of parts were installed wrong or homemade. The nut didn't fit right, the tuners were loose, ^the pick guard problem, etc.

when at guitar stores, the guitars are either out of tune, or tuned to something other than standard E.

at guitar stores the employees practically line up to ask if there's anything they can do for me. Nice, but repetitive.

people at guitar stores that turn up the amps and shred a metal solo extremely messy for the sake of attention

I don't have a humbucker or two

flying v's - I can't stand guitars that I can't play properly sitting down.

too much feedback

those pink purposely girly guitars. ENOUGH WITH THE HELLO KITTY, THE FLOWERS, AND THE PINK SUNBURSTS!!! Guitars don't need to be made for girls!! They're awesome as they are! (no that wasn't sexist I'm a girl)

Rich kids whose parents buy them PRS Customs, which are played for about a week, and then thrown into the closet.

Metalhead posers that buy B.C. Riches because they think it'll make them more hXc, and act like they pwn everyone, but they actually suck.

1. Gibson due to its overpriced-ness.

3. People who bash on a guitar brand for no reason.
4. Jackson King V's because I hate Kerry King.
5. People messing with the amp tones after they're done playing by setting everything to 10 at guitar center
6. Missing strings on a guitar.
7. Painted necks.
8. High gloss necks.
9. Little kids who pick up guitars by the strings. 'Tsk 'Tsk
10. Ten is better than nine so this is ten.
