Probably cause most people have never actualy played a really nice Fender just played shit Squires and assumed Fender's were the same. Hell, I hated Fender's until I played a super expensive Strat.

Fenders are pretty inconsistant in my experience. I've played some good ones and some crappy ones. But if you try before you buy (only a retard wouldn't) ya can't really go wrong. I want me a sunburst strat with a maple neck pronto.

Dumbass that is a classical guitar, use nylon strings or the neck will crack... and not the kind you were smoking when you wrote this.
#7
because they are too popular and everyone thinks they are godlike so everyone else wants to be "different" and not like them without trying them.. although they are exactly the same as the other people who do that so its just retarded if you ask me
#8
Because everyone on here is worthless and listens to metal/death metal. They all use B.C. Rich ... SIGH.

oh ya... and because they aren't a gibson.

Oh yeah, they're standard body shape get's old after awhile, gimme a Les Paul or and SG

i can't stand gibson. i love fender. great guitars. greater amps. most of the people here though are just a bunch of metalheads that want les pauls and marshalls and think anything without a humbucker pickup with the gain on 10 is just quaint.

yeah the fact that they arent gibsons is kin of a good point

I actually really like the strat sound, I'm considering buying one provided that I can find something I really like.

fenders have the best part of guitar which goes above everything including looks, style, action...ect

It has character and passion with the best sweet sound that can ever be heard.

There ya go.

I find Fender shit guitars, but amazing for playing slide on, while Gibson are amazing guitars, they are shit for playing slide on. That's my personal taste anyway.

totally different sound...

i dont think i'd buy a gibson... seen heaps of gibsons, only played a couple never owned one.

Was in a big guitar store last year, they had about 15 gibsons... and about 4 LP standards... All 4 of them seemed to have the same knot in the maple top at the same place.... they looked identical but in different colours so that seemed a bit fishy and yes they were real gibson USA's...

but yeah i prefer fender and strat like guitars in general... i guess gibsons are a bit more 'balls to the walls' but theres still something about fenders and just brighter sounding guitats in general...

oh yeah and the general thing about em on here i do believe is because the majority of people on here are metalheads... and its easier and stock to get high gain from a gibson...

like look around some other forums, and you'll find tonnes of fender players... which dont play shrilling hi-gain, but play stuff that isnt all powerchords in general and is actually harder to play... might not be as fun to play by yaself but in a band and ya laughin...

ps any South aussies after a band PM me lol

indeed, the reason im getting a fender is because it sounds different to gibsons
#23
Yeah as this was stated before, people hate them for their popularity amongst novice guitarists and such. Also because they don't have humbuckers. Personally I love my Fender, although a mexican made model.

sorry to add something else in here in such a short time, but fenders playing gainy music and what not can kind of be unique sounding in my oppinion.. so some of u gibson lovers try playing a strat on your settings and try learning that it will sound "good" or a bit more individual than a warm sounding guitar...

oh and i believe humbuckers and a warm sounding guitar will make you sound better than you are... along with gain... try getting some singles or lighter humbuckers and try playing something on clean.... which is what i'm currently doing... playing stuff on clean and getting away from metal... as around here noone wants a pub band that distorts the walls off..

When i was checking out new guitars, the Showmaster QMT was one of the ones I was considering. The only reason I didn't get it was cause it was 50 bucks over than what my cheapo dad would let me use. It outperformed the Ibanez RG2EX by at least 2 times. I loved it. =( There was nice low action (REALLY low) nice tremelo system, bends were like a hot knife through butter. Damn that thing was nice.

I'm not bashing metal when I say this, but you have to admit that the genre metal is usually associated with four guitar brands, Jackson, ESP, Ibanez, and B.C. Rich. I'm not saying those are the only four brands used in metal, but a good percent of metal bands use those.
