hey guys..just out of curiousity here..

fender is mainly for clean,blues and stuff like that right? and a lot of other brand's guitar are for metal/rock,like ibanez?

but what kind of sound are epip and gib les pauls made for? arent those pickups humbuckers? or are they special ones? or are they just covered?

They make different sounds depending on where you place your fingers on the fretboard. Unless you have EMGs then you just sound like ****.

fenders are mainly used for rock too, ppl often just label guitars by how they see them used, if you have the skills, you can play anything on almost anything

that being said, you do get better tones taht are associated with a certain genre out of certain guitars

im sure more posts will contribute and clarify

fender/gibson.. more classic rock ish imo

ibanez/jackson/dean/ESP.. more metal

Semihollows.. more for jazz/blues and acoustic stuff

Musicman guitars.. rip offs

ALTHOUGH.. there are always exceptions

You're dumb.

I've seen metal band's use Telecasters and hollowbodies and people play blues on ESP's and Ibanezes.

Musicman guitars are not rip offs, that's how I know you are really retarded.

Who gives a **** how you look it's not a fashion contest. It will be as clean as your amp is. "Metal" guitars don't put off a natural distortion. My Ibanez has one of the best clean sounds I've heard... I love it.

I do like Dragonforce but my comment is a slight joke.

Also the Ibanez edge is a much better trem than the OFR and I can go into detail if you like.

lol,dudes,chill

anyways,i really don't know which is better for me? i used to have a crave for a Fender fat strat standard with HSS and now i want an ibanez s470 with HSH. But,i really don't think i'd be playing much metal and cranking the whammy bar much.

GAh,its just stupid moments..i've never been stable on what to choose...also because of the fact that i've been waiting bloody long to get a guitar...so i have a lot of time to dissagree with my own choice...

what do you people think? i'd probably be playing funk rock? punk rock? at most hard rock...

just go out and try them out, when u play the one that ur destined to, youll no
#20
I would go play them and pick the one you like better. Either will be good for music you want to play and the trem on the S is top notch so don't be worried about that.

Christ. Lot of retardation going on in this thread.


Any guitar can be used for anything. 'It's not what you've got, it's how you use it that counts'.
Yes, tradtionally, Fenders are more for blues, archtops are more for jazz, Les Pauls are for straight rock and super-Strats (ESP, Ibanez, etc) are more for metal.
But there's absolutely nothing actually stopping you though from playing blues on a Les Paul, metal on a Fender Strat (in fact, that's what metal first started on), or using super-Strats for jazz even.
#27
Well, youre generalizing by brand here.

Fender make more than just the strat and tele, which you know, with modifications you could use them for screaming death metal anyway. It's the rest of your set up that counts tbh. Yngwie uses a strat for neoclassical er crap, and Maiden have HSS strats. John 5 used his tele back when he was with Manson.

There's the showmaster, which makes a ducking awesome shredding/metal guitar.


Ibanez make more than just the RG and JEMs, theres the entire Artcore hollow body range, then the S and the SA which make awesome guitar for blues playing still.


I'm not going to make any comments on gibby, because i'm not a fan, but i'm sure you could churn up anything you wanted out of the LP.

yeah...but its just that you don't see many people playing RHCP with an ibanez

Doesn't mean you can't do that. Your amp matters a whole lot more than your guitar.
I bet you could get a great death metal tone if you plugged a standard Strat into a Framus Cobra or something.

i've seen the guitarist from poison the well (hardcore band) use a telecaster for his whole set...
and i've seen dallas from alexisonfire use a semihollow for almost a full hour and half set as well...
