i have a razorback, but the more i play it the less im starting to like it, and i think im going to trade it in. but, idk what to get.

i was always biased to deans, before i even owned one, but now that ive played the razorback, i just dont like it.


i know ill have to go to guitar center and try some **** out for myself anyway, but im just trying to get an idea of whats good.


i dont want:
another dean
a b.c. rich (already have one)
a double-locking tremolo (although if the guitar is badass enough, i can get over having a trem)


brands that come to mind are ibanez and jackson, but ive never played any of these so i dont know from experience.

so does anyone have any suggestions on what i should get instead?

ibanez s series prestiege if possible
pro tools operator certified
agile in-ceptor 727
gibson:les-paul studio
fender:strat
ibanez:prestiege s2170se s520ex
esp:ec-1000vb
splawn nitro kt88s
genz-bends g-flex

i was thinking about a xiphos...

but idk the reason i dont like my dean is because it just has this "thin-ness" to it, like the strings, that i just dont like.

and ive heard that when you have a double locking trem, you have to use smaller gauge strings.

i tried putting a set of 13's on it and i ended up ripping the spring tension adjustment screws out of the back of the guitar. but that could also be because im just a dumb****.

lol cool.

wow i just triple posted... oh well its my thread/


dont ever move to katy. it sucks ass here. its so boring. all anyone cares about is football.

Maybe, you weren't ready for a Razorback so just stick with your BC Rich, kid.


But try a Ibanez in the RG series cause they are simple for kids that are starting to learn guitar.


and yes I'm taking cheap shots at you. I was only kidding.
#11
lol.

well im not a total noob. ive been playing for about 2 years now.

and i dont want a crap starter guitar. i want something badass, which is why i bought the razorback. id rather just get the good **** now, instead of getting something substandard and then eventually getting something better and wasting money.

Sorry for taking you thread TS.

no its lemon oil. i use it at work to clean off the bar. ****s badass.

just look in the cleaning products section of your grocery store.


Bar?

I'll probably feel stupid if the bar is something that I know by a different name.

Man why would you want to trade your Razorback in? I'd kill to have one! Just put the effort in to play it and know it's a legendary guitar. But if you must trade it in why not a:

Jackson Randy Rhoads
Zakk Wylde Les Paul Custom //Bullseye, Buzzsaw or Camo.

well yeah i thought that too, untill i actually got one. im a huge fan of dime, and because of that i was totally biased to deans, but now that ive played it for a while, i just dont like it anymore. its not that i dont put in the effort or anything.


and it is a nice guitar, no doubt. there is zero friction on that fretboard. theres just something about it that i dont like anymore, and i want to try something different now.

bar=place where alcoholic beverages are served.

seriously homie, i bet thatll make a huge difference. and like, if your tuning to standard/drop d, or e flat even. why are you using 13's? you probably pick too hard (i used to like, beat the hell out of my **** back in the dizzle). if anything i think you should lemon oil your **** up and throw a duncan distortion in the bridge. fo realz. ive been playing for 10 years and am planning on getting me the exact ax in a bit. just bought a new synyster custom. . .
