K guys,if you've been looking at my other threads *other than the ice cream flavour and acoustic guitar threads* you should know i like rock...Songs like Holiday-Green Day ,The Hell Song-Sum 41 , but i also like songs like I Miss You-Blink 182 ...

Heres the problem...I absolutely love ibanez...but i like Fender too...There are only 2 guitars that i would consider;

-Ibanez S470
-Fender Highway 1 HSS

The fender is of course,more expensive..And considering the type of music which i play,which brand would be best? or in other words,which guitar?Take note that i can probably afford both.

Thanks

Rock is Pink Floyd. Rock is Led Zeppelin. Blink 182 is radio trash ****.

Did you just say hell song is by blink 182? I'm offended. But anyway go with Ibanez, so much more versatile, really nice bridge on that in my opinion and also it looks really cool compared to a strat.
#8
Since ur 13, i forgive u for listening 2 such bands only..........

both guitars are ok but its up 2 u to try them all n find ur favourite,although i prefer the strat
#9
That stuff you listen to is pop punk. That said, you should check out Epiphone/Gibson and Fender.

why would you need an ibanez with an Edge tremolo to play pop punk? do you even know how to change strings and tune them on a floating bridge system?

Oh my god. The grammar in this thread is HORRIFYING.
There ain't no moral to this story at all. Anything I tell you very well could be a lie.

to the threadstarter...

the ibanez is a good guitar for rock and metal. but the fender would be more versatile in case you decide to expand your musical interests in the future

Go back to the PIT
#23
yeah i like tons of music...but considering funk rock..*RHCP* the fender would be a better choice...and it DOES have a humbucker..*HSS* so i suppose that'll satisfy my need for rock/pop rock
#25
oh...if you are telling the other guy to go back to the pit then i'm terribly sorry,
#26
There is an 'edit' button for a reason...

Anyway. The Fender would give you more options if you wished to branch out into other styles in future, the Ibanez would be more suited specifically for rock/punk/whatever else it is you care to list that stuff as, I'm not going to get into that argument. You get the idea anyway.

That said, I would more suggest something like a Gibson LP, a Kramer super-Strat with a HSH pickup config, or an ESP super-Strat (probably an MH or M). Possibly an SG too. You'd probably find them more suitable right now, and things like the Kramer would have even more flexibility for the future than the Fender would.

Any guitar can play anything. Your amp, effects, and playing will make up 99% of your sound.

While this is true, there is a difference between 'can play' and 'can play well'. For instance, you could use a vintage Gibson ES semi-hollowbody for thrash metal... but it wouldn't do it quite so well as say, an ESP AX. Similarly, there's nothing stopping you from using that AX for blues playing, but most people would agree you'd be better off with a Strat.

it all depends on the sound you want. i like fender better imo. they have more options guitar wise. dont just think that a strat means an alder body with 3 single coils or sometimes a humbucker. they actually make many types of guitars. they even have mahogany strats with humbuckers and switching systems. i say just try a bunch of guitars out, and not just ibanez and fender, and see what you like. try not to be biased.

TS,chill out.How are we supposed to help if you keep flaming everyone?Blink 182 is not rock,face it.UG is an anti grammar error heaven by the way.

For the type of music you play,I'd recommend something with a humbucker.Maybe a squier stratocaster with HSS if you're a beginner?

sry man,but that guy really pissed me out...i already have a guitar...its a SSS one..
#38
I say HW1 HSS, versatile enough cos of the hum in the bridge, and you go the singles in mid and neck for a real nice bluesey tone.

In the future you could easily upgrade the PUPS, a higher or lower output hum if you wanted, and better singles.
