I have this guy in my class who has recently purchased a Jackson KE3, ok good guitar it cost him £500, but he went with the crimson swirl wich costs an extra £100. He seems to think that its the best guitar around. I'm sure there ar better guitars around for £500 can someone help me find something very similar and better. He flames fenders and knows nothing about them. Though most fenders are made from alder just like the KE3. Any help would be great thanks

?... KE3 is a great guitar for it's price, just like all the Jacksons are. There's nothing wrong with it that'd make it suck, and it's not overpriced either; the rest of it is just personal preference.

Why are you so annoyed with someone having a good guitar, anyway? What the hell
Jackson DKMG & KE3, Fender Mexican Strat, Stagg Acoustic

Boss Compressor & Chorus, Dunlop Crybaby, Behringer Delay, ISP Decimator, Ibanez Tubescreamer

Laney TT50H, Marshall 1960A, Roland Cube 15

Looking to jam in Belfast, PM me!

he's probably just not ready a fender. i hated fenders until i got more experienced at guitar playing, now i rarely play anything else.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

so lemme get this straight. you want to buy a guitar just because the other guy in your class brags about his? that makes NO sence what so ever. if you play better than him that who cares. challenge him to like a "play off" of some sort. dont buy a new guitar cuz another guy brags about his. thats un nessicary money you'll be spending. besides, if your guitar if perfect for you, than its the best guitar around. wether it be a $50 strat copy or a $300 custom built guitar.

moonhawk u got it all wrong. he just wants to find a guitar in the same price range that is better just so that he'll stop being a snobby little biotch and won't be showing off his guitar like a freaking tard. i had the same problem with a friend of mine, except that his guitar really was crap.

No no no, i just want to show him that there are better guitars out there for the same price, because the crimson swirl cost 100. Please im very happy with my epiphone, and am in no way jealous though it would be interesting to know.
