What, in your opinion is the best guitar of all time?

My opinion is the Ibanez Steve Vai Bad Horsie Signature!

Me "Have you ever bled out your arse-hole?"

Her: Facial expression was priceless - "What??! Noo!"

Me: "Well if you want to keep it that way, **** off."

She then turned away and whimpered.

heh, that guitar don't exist as far as i know, you mean a jem maybe? mine would be ehm, soloist. but the pickups i want just don't exist, i want the true sound of a unplugged guitar coming out of the pickups so i'd better go with mics

Nope. It wouldnt have anything else. Just the unpainted body. The pickups that wont be attached to anyting because there is no pickguard. And the neck....with no headstock.....Cause those things arent attached. And thats it. No pots, No springs, No tuners, No strings, No Whammy, No Fixed Bridge, NO noththing. Just shred.

only downside with a soloist is that if the neck ever happened to snap it'd be a bit hard to replace therefore i prefer dinkys. a lot cheaper too

For real the Best metal guitar of all time would be an Ibanez Prestige S series with EMGs. In 6 or 7 string. ..........Actualy it doesnt have to be EMGs but its what most people prefer.

since this is a very general question, i will give a very general answer, the Fender Telecaster. The versatility and simplicity of it are amazing, not to mention its reliability and incredible sound.

Thats such a bullshit excuse.
Lets face the facts the only reason you would really want a dinky over the soloist is if you prefer the unpainted neck, the tonal characteristics of a bolt (more alder in the body) or you like the feel of a big hunk of wood in the upper registers (believe it or not, I know quite a few guys who like having that big block in the way.. it adds more "feel" or some shit supposedly)

Well.. supposedly I own two of the best metal guitars..

Ibanez S prestige (s2170fb)
and a Jackson Soloist (SLSMG)

I have to agree, with new pups, the S2170 shreds.

No. It's me.




You are a badass looking person.


On topic : For me :

JEM7VWH for leads and cleans
Takemine for acoustics
Maybe a Moser with an 81 in the bridge for rhythm
Mesa dual rect (not a guitar, I know)

Don't Ibanez S series guitars only have 22 frets? Best guitar needs 24 <_<


You, my friend, are an idiot.

Frets are really prefernece when you get down to it.
A 21 Fret neck will have the warmest neck position availiable, ala Stratocaster.
A 22 Fret neck, will have a warm sound, but with a bit more crispness, ala any Gibson Les Paul or, the Ibanez S in question.
A 24 fret neck, has an extremely crisp and brigt neck position sound, not as crisp or full of attack as the bridge, but for a neck, real punchy.

Its all preference man, and in the end, the "ultimate" guitar is about tone, not little frillys...
or at least, I'd rather take a guitar with amazing tone, and reasonable playability... especially if its just two semitones... then a guitar with 24 frets and a "meh" tone.

is there really a big hunk of wood vs a neck through.
