yes this kinda copys of of guitarnoize's (todays most under rated guitarists) thread but i thought this was a good idea. please least the electric guitar you think is most underrated today i think its the gibson explorer (not under rated to everybody but most people it is)

The telecaster on these forums - controversial of me i just dont understand why people only recomend strats...

Kramers and B.C.Rich. Very good value for money but dont have the best reputation anymore. Both shared similiar fates in the past.

Can't the Telecaster be used for pretty much anything? Strats have a very particular sound

No. Most tele's i hear are extremely twangy, most guitars have a unique sound, and are only good for certain types of music.

Jackson = They've kinda faded into oblivion, and their lack of endorsers and slipping USA quality isn't helping

Charvel = They're too exclusive anymore, and nothing special for the price Maybe the new MIJ will fix that in spades. Older ones still kick ass (Ask Shawn Lane)

Aria Pro II = Play one of these and then play that new Ibanez super strat. 80s Pro IIs totally kickass, but they're kinda unknown outside your 80s circles

Washburn = They build some slick guitars for the price, but you don't hear them talked about near as much as some others

Daisy Rock = I agree with whats been said. Ugly (to a male I guess) but they play really nice and are built well

My first guitar was a squire tele.
It was a really solid guitar, especially for a 9 year old
To be honest I'm still impressed by its tone now
Brilliant for the right genres of music as people have said

Yeah, i find it really annoying that people think of jaguars as nothing more than "some old fashioned surf guitar". They are actually very versatile, have a very distinctive sound, its just that some people are scared by the switching system and all the issues with the bridge. The saddle jumping and buzzing issues with the bridge can probably be solved by simply using a higher gauge set of strings than you usually would. they shouldn't be too tight, as it's a short scale guitar.

this is mainly for the benefit of people who are scared of the jaguars switching:

The pickup switching is actually very simple too. the switch on the top horn is a "circuit selector", which in the up position is the rhythm circuit. this is basically, the neck pickup, with the volume and tone controlled by the 2 roller pots next to the circuit switch. in the downward position you have the lead circuit which uses the standard volume and tone, and the 3 switches. these are simply - bass cut on/off, bridge pickup on/off and neck pickup on/off. its a lot easier than it sounds.

I never actually had any issues with the bridge on my jaguar, but thats probably becuase i changed to a hight string gauge the moment i bought it

sorted the bridge buzz right out

yeah, i guess some people just don't use common sense. i find that any guitar buzzes if the strings are too loose. my friend's les paul sounds like a sitar because he uses .09s for drop B... he thinks i'm insane using .10s for standard tuning, but on a jaguar i'd probably use .12s (i'm hoping to get a jag sometime soon)

i've heard of cort, i just don't see many of them around. never played one either, i've only seen their vaguely strat-like guitars.

Corts can be hit or miss. There cheapos are generally crap, but in recent years they've started building nicer guitars that are quite good.

personally, i'm a fan of the GP, but i'm also biased there, seeing as i own one
i also have yet to play an airline made by Eastwood, so i can't really judge
i just say they make some all around great guitars for the money
