I know this has been done before but I wondered has anyone ever owned or played a Grover "Beauty." The top half of the body looks like a Strat and the bottom of it is just a square. It's got 8 single-coil pick ups lined up between the bridge and the neck with only one volume control for the lot of them. I've bought it on e-bay and its rubbish. Its brown as well. All brown. Bought it for $300 so that's a months work down the pan.

Yeah, selling out totally changes your sexual preference.

Will get them up as soon as my digi cam is working again. It's the worst everything. The sound is just fuzz because of all the pic ups which I think are worth about a dollar each. The shape is freakin weird. It's like half a normal guitar but then half a table top. As for the sound, I play it through my Grover Amp (A.127) but what can I expect off of a 9 watt amp that only has a master volume control. Seriously though, I expected more from Grover.

Are you serious? No...just...no. Do you like Hendrix's tone? Clapton? Richie Blackmore? Buddy Guy? SRV? I'm all for personal opinion but that was just an ignorant comment.

The worst I've ever played was my brother's strat, but in a guitar store I'll only pick up stuff like Gibsons, Epiphones and Gretsches. I'm a man of taste.

I just died a little inside. No David Gilmour, Eric Johnson, or Gary Moore? Shame on you Pilgrim. You could at least have Johnson. He IS tone. But SRV compensates for all of that.

Warhead is on one of his anti Strat rampages again. He said his first guitar was a MiA Fender Strat and said he hated it . BTW I think the worst guitar is the wangcaster its just so stupid its not really that funny either. Or it could be that Epiphone guitar thats in the shape of America oh dear lord, there are some aweful guitars.
Looking to buy a Fender Jagstang, u sellin?

I would say the Epiphone Airscreamer, but it's so bad it's cool. Trailerpark santa would play one.

My first guitar. It sounded so thin, the neck wasn't very easy to move around and it felt like a toy. Also, The wiring inside it broke, the five selector never worked (only for the bridge Hum) and the machine heads were crap. I mean, when it was in tune, it was out of tune! I use it as a test subject now (like I basically take it apart and put it back together sometimes). I got a Fender strat now which is a MASSIVE improvement. To say that that yamaha guitar was holding me back is an understatement.
WHY DID I BECOME A HOBO!?

-Cough- I think the point was it was a squier hello kitty stratocrap. Not a fender strat.

Edit: xD Visions of Hendrix playing that jazzy looking thing. Awesome.

how can you say strats are bad. i just orderd a 2006 standrad hss strat. i played a few at the store but they didnt have one in chrome red(all sunburst, black and a blue one) they play like heaven. sure the pickups arent the best but with the price tag of $399 whos complaining? They really arent bad anyway. way better than all those epis i played (ill admit that some of their lps had great tone but i hated the neck. kinda slow compared to a strat's neck). im glad i chose a strat over anything else. im so excited i cant wait for my guitar to come!!! cant wait to be joining the fender family

anyway the worst guitar has got to be one of those plywood things they sell at walmart or best buy.

Not JUST a Paul. Have his performance at Wembley Arena? He was using a strat. But I can understand your assumption as Gary does use quite a few Pauls.

Moore also uses an Explorer.

But the Fender Performer is uuuuugly. Talk about 80's styling... in the bad way.
