Ok ive been playing for about 3-4 years have 4 guitars"Epiphone les paul,epiphone sg,some spanish guitar(nylon)and a squier strat the les paul is so screwed up cuz my nephew the strat ok and sg perfect condition yet i cant be creative at with it.And its the only things that isnt so messed up by family i have been practicing with new tunings like drop c and whenever i tune back to standard u hate the sound!.and i suck at pinch harmonics cuz those are new for me i have digitech death metal without the adapter and a rp 200 without a adapter so there arent any new creative sounds coming and i have nnothing but thin picks(wich suck)And i have anger issues/.i can play about the intermediate -advanced level i guess but i just need new equipment to help me do something new .The sg is so uncomfortable .

Why are your guitars uncomfortable? Like Body Shape, Neck Feel, Tone, Weight?

Like myself, I hate the feeling of my explorer sometimes, so I play my strat, and vis-versa... sometimes just changing the strings on a guitar makes it feel 100 times better.

Maybe your guitars just need a set up. If you feel frustrated just stop playing for a couple days and take a break. If you want to upgrade you equipment that always fine, but remember its not going to make you any better at guitar.

Actually thats a good idea.BuT i dont know what i should get im thinking a b.c.rich or jackson or even a ibanez and im not complaning but my skill level and **** im just saying im pissed off at a waste of money guitar

yeah...

Right now I'm playing a target starter strat and a tiny pignose amp and I got all the tones I need.

Sure it ain't exactly versatile and the only sounds I can really get are ear shattering trebley and thin or muddy sounding with a bit of fuzz thrown in... but I make do.

Plus I'm able to squeeze a pretty good Eric Johnson Cliffs of Dover sound out of that sucker...


but hey... most of his tone is in the fingers.


So be happy with what you got.

um... why would you buy them then? i mean, considering you have 4 guitars and have been playing for only 3 years, i'm forced to think that it is just a problem with your guitar playing and not the equipment itself. so practice practice practice. your equipment isn't going to make you any better (unless it is next to broken).

If you're not gonna change amps or get any other effect pedals you're tone will eventually be limited and you'll be in the same situation you're in now.

$200 can get you a playable guitar...
yes, a more expensive one would probably be better quality, but you can still play on a $200 one. it doesn't hinder your creativity really (unless you're wanting a floyd rose or something, but i dont think that is the situation). if you could only play decently on expensive guitars, then somethings wrong. i don't think that is the case though.

all i will say is STOP COMPLAINING!!! you have four guitars which you hate, i have two which i love. if you dont like your FOUR guitars then next time buy something better instead of just buying something because you want a new guitar. you say you have two pedals without adapters... so get adapters for them. you say you have thin picks which suck according to you... so get thicker picks.

well if you have 3 that you dont hate, then why dont you play them instead of complaining about the 1 out of 4 that you do hate

if you dont have a question, then what is the point of this thread? to complain?

i do have a question wich i posted and its who has a epiphone sg that doesent like it?or who does like it?
#23
im actually in the same boat right now. i have only one good guitar, but its a hollowbody and cant get good distortion which i really want.

all i can see is that we're both screwed for getting ****ty guitars that we really dont need.
