A recent study shows that 92% of all teens have moved on to rap music. Put this in your profile if you are one of the 8% who stayed with the real music.

There will be smaller Luthiers that will make ten times the quality and workmanship than what goes into the mass produced guitars. Look around, the world's your oyster in America and everything is so cheap compared to the UK.
A recent study shows that 8% of teenagers listen to nothing but music with guitars in it. Put this in your sig if you're one of the 92% who isn't a closed-minded moron.

Ummm, petrol? Nip down to your local petrol station, buy a litre of the stuff and soak your balls in it, light them up and start playing with them.

I like Fender guitars the best, but i heard they use child labour...so thats why i dont really like them.
#14
Warmoth your parts(Any other place that sells high quality parts is fine) and have a luthier help you out with it, or have them make you a custom. That way you get an instrument tailored to your own personal preferences and not some mass market middle of the road guitar that most people would like, but not be 100% satisfied with. But still, no one brand is best, it all chalks down to what you prefer.

Just to spite you... Fender!
I'm all seriousness, besides direct from a luthier, is Carvin.
If you could blow up the world with a flick of a switch,
Would you do it?

If you could make everybody poor just so you could be rich,
Would you do it?

With all your power,
What would you do?
#22
^I agree with Carvin, you can almost completely customize your guitar exactly the way you want. It can be pretty spendy though, depending on what you pick.

It's subjective and completley opinionated. You're thread is going to start off flame wars between ibanez fanboys and....well....everyone else.

What do you mean? I was talking about why the threadstarted said "Don't say Fender"
From the past couple months being on UG and from seeing on how people's perceptions were about fenders..i would think TS would want to be different? That or he already has a strat.


Personaly, I quite frankly love strats/tele's tone, it's so creamy.

wtf. Wrong forum. Read the stickies, fool.

The kid probably just wants to look cool so he types out PRS when he makes a thread. Hes probably a n00b thats gunna end up with a Squire Bullet starter pack.
