basically i went to a guitar fair this week, and i always wanted a strat or les paul or something like that. i dont know why but they just always seemd to really appeal to me, but i played a few, a reissue lp and a 57 strat but i hated both of them, i just didn't like the necks on either (for different reasons) on the other hnd tho, i never liked sg's but i tried a gibson sg standard and thought it was good.

have u ever really liked a guitar and then hated it when you played it or vice versa?

I always loved the way LP's look, But i tried one out and it was the worst thing i had EVER played.

I always thought that Strats were way too generic but i ended up with a 1962 strat and i have never looked back.

I agree with the PRS , beautiful looking guitar and killer tone but it just really doesn't feel right at all. Les Pauls all the way for this guitarist.

EDIT: Any Ibanez. Don't know why, there's just something about them.

And this isn't exatly the same, but I've always loved the look and the feel of a superstrat type guitar (except for Ibanez), but after getting my first ML shaped guitar, it almost like I could never see myself playing anything else, even though the superstart used to be my favourite, the ml just fits me perfectly.

Yeah, I never liked strats, and like Aldente, I thought they were too generic, but when i borrowed one, i fell in love with it, and i decided to get one for myself.

for my birthday this year (november), all i've wanted since last year was a gibson les paul classic.

i played one for like 5 mins the other week, and i didnt really like it. i mean, i loved the neck, but i found it really hard to get to the higher frets. my SG has like the two holes for my fingers, and when i go up, i can still put my thumb around the neck if i feel like it, but with a lp, you cant....

i think i'll still get one though. i just love em...

I discovered something about me recently. I happen to love Les Pauls and Strats alike it seems. I primarily have been and will be playing my LP, but lately, when I play a Hendrix solo or something, I just unplug the LP, and plug the Strat in. Usually, I don't end up unplugging the strat, partly in due to laziness, partly because I simply like the instrument.

Overall, I'd have to go with a LP primarily, but man, IMO a guitar is a guitar. An awesome instrument, no matter who makes it.

I've tried Les Paul's and various Ibanez's and I just didn't like any of them at all. I'm definitely a strat person.

I hate the Les Paul. I wanted to like it.. But it was too bassy, too heavy, the neck was lame..

I hated everything about it.

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

Les Pauls, I played the best of the best (58 Blonde Gibson Custom) and it was clunky and felt awkward.
I'd go for a Strat, LC7 or Ibanez anyday.

This is why I would never buy a guitar over the internet. I always have to try it out first.

yesterday, guitarcenter, Dime Razorback, the one with the flames for $1000, i hated it. i then picked up a white Gibson Explorer and fell in love with it. . i thought the dimebucker would have been bitchin in it, but no.

Fender strats. One of my hero's is Ritchie Blackmore so I really wanted to play a strat but I just cannot get a good feel for the neck. I find them to flat, if that makes any sense, compared to the necks on epi's and gibsons. I am alright with most other brands that I ahve played around with, like schecter, but just cannot get into strats.
#19
I used to think I wanted a Les Paul, then I tried a few over time. Didn't like the neck, the weight, and the way it feels when you sit with the guitar.
And any Flying V guitar. Randy Rhoads is one of my favorite guitar players, but I just can't play a V.

I was going to get a Tanglewood acoustic a while back and it played well and it sounded great, but it had that glossy finish. I hate it when acoustics have that. However, it led me to my Martin and I can't say I'm disappointed.
