Why do people hate Gibson? I don't understand it they are expensive compared to Fenders but why? why? why? why? Metalheads prefer Ibanez and Jackson but why??
#2
Overrated and overpriced imo.

jackson necks are better suited for metal/ shred players, although it is personal preference..
although, in my experience the neck on my jackson is much faster than my EPI LP.epi though
and with a gibby, u pay for name brand.

Overrated, overpriced, overhyped.
A higher end epiphone beats a low end gibson at the same price.
You're essentially paying hundreds of dollars more for the name.

I don't hate the guitars, I hate the insane price tags on them. Sure Gibson's are USA made and they have great materials and are handcrafted. Still...how the f*ck do you justify selling guitars for $2500 for an average model?

She's saying that this is basically spam. GGA used to be free to of most retarded spam.

I'm saying you're a bit of a moron because this is a pointless thread that isn't going to derail anyone's personal preference. You seem to like Gibson - Other people don't. Gibson isn't the end-be-all, top tier, best of the best guitar maker. Deal with it.
Certainly not the best guitar maker for everyone, as everyone has preferences.

I'm not trying to derail anyones opinion I don't work for gibson. Everyone knows the best guitar is a hello kitty strat. (THAT WAS A JOKE). Just wanted to know why don;t get why everyone is so touchy. I'm never said I rate gibsons never even played one.

you can get better guitars for the same price probably even a custom shop one if you look in the right place.

Spam ISN'T just advertisement. You've made a pointless thread that's taking up room- which by the way, belongs in the EG forum, anyway, not GGA - that also shows you're just trolling. You've never even played a Gibson, yet you're trying to incite people by asking why they hate them?

It is guitar related how is it pointless whats the big deal get a life! Incite people?? What is your problem?

^Yeah, okay. Now, you're just a douche. If you'd even listen to the music on my profile, you'd see it's not even related to fall out boy.

It doesn't matter if it's guitar related. This isn't the place for it. This is a forum for asking questions about effects pedals, amps, any kind of guitar accessories. Hence, GGA. If you want to start a spammy thread about why people Gibsons, go ahead and do it EG, people do it there all the time.
If you don't care for the rules, don't post.

Stop saying "get a life" or "what's your problem". Why don't you get a life? Don't you have anything better to do than post spammy threads?
#31
snazzy, you keep asking, "what's your problem."

i thought it was made pretty clear.

1. if you like a guitar, don't worry if others "hate" it.
2. this is a vague question. the answer was posted a few times, and it's in the wrong section.

i was trying to be nice, but now it's time for you to go back to the pit. ok thanx.

I own a Gibson. I love it' It's more or less the best guitar I have ever played. It is from 1998. But when I pick up a modern Gibson (actually the new ones are catching up, bt a '05-'07) I felt dissapointed. The crafmanship was low. It had none of the tone or resonance of my 98 Studio. Not only that, but generally everything just felt so-so. And would I have payed the price they had? NO WAY!

^ I haven't tried any 05 - 07 model Gibsons, so I'm not sure about them, but the Les Paul Standards and Customs that I played this year were awesome, and back when I first started playing guitar, I played a local shop owners '00 Les Paul Standard, and it was fantastic.

Gibson should take some lessons from their significant other, Epiphone.

but I have used my friend's LP for metal, and it suits me fine.

Quote by Taylor704
to me, Les Pauls are overrated, they arent the best guitar ever, they dont own the hell out of a Strat

They're overpriced for what you pay for, and i think there are better guitars to be had for better purposes, depending on your music


I own a Les Paul and a Start, both being VERY good ones too!

I can tell you that they are VERY different. Strat has a thin, spanky sound with a whole lot of attack. The Les Paul has a thick tone with more roar than bite.
