Hey guys, I am trying to create my own sound, and I want to figure out how to do it form an unknown, unfamiliar guitar, that I will be able to form my own style and sounds from. I would appreciate it if you guys could find something for me, that even a guitar tech would not recognize. My budget for a guitar like this is $400 and under, but if I really love it I will pay up to $600 for it. THANKS FOR THE HELP!!

Also caught her playing fallout boy on my guitar, changed my strings and cleaned it the next day.

Just search for any old Japanese brand on ebay and then completely bastardize it with a load of mods.
A dwarf might hear you. What then?

Take a random piece of wood furniture in your house, cut it into a comfortable, but ugly shape, paint it in a strange manner, then find some random object to use as a pick, and voila, just like Brian May, you've got your own unique sound.

Yeah dude, pull a Brian May, build it. make something out of some strange ass body wood, or something.

Why do you think your unique sound will come magically from a guitar? Use your digits to achieve that

It's not unique, then he'd be copying Brian May.

Topic Creator, if you want a unique sound, well... the amp will make more of a difference, really, unless you wanna do something like John 5 and play a Telecaster for metal, which gives it an annoyingly twangy sound... a lot of your tone comes from your hands as well (this'd be a great time to make a racist joke about darker and lighter tones).

This - get an old Teisco or something.

I presume you want to be like Jack White with his National.

You could make an electric out of Spruce, the most common wood for acoustic tops... can't say I've ever seen Spruce used in an electric... wonder why.

Cost?

+1 to taking a chair, and putting strings on it.
