I'm in the market for a new guitar and I want something out of the ordinary. My max is about 800 USD. I'm looking for brands that a lot of people don't hear about but make extremely awesome guitars. As you can see by my profile I want a Gary Kramer, but that aside what are some other brands that offer out of the ordinary guitars. Even if they aren't extreme guitars just brands that make quality instruments that aren't well known. Thanks.

I think a custom guitar would be perfect for you, but most would be out of your price range.

Maybe a Godin though? They are pretty well known, but you don't see em very often, and they make great guitars.

playing by yourself is like masturbating, sure it feels great, but it's nothing compared to the real deal.

If you can save a bit more Carvin customs are great. I have one if you wanna see it in my profile.

I also have another custom on the way... I've been waiting over a year for it to be finished...

Please don't tell me I'm the only one that clicked this thread thinking I would learn how to make my guitar sound like a grizzly bear.

Those are pretty sweet. Although I'm geared towards metal a little more.

Parker would be the first I would think of (if it also has to look different).
Also, PRS perhaps?
And G&L!

Heres a nice guitar



However its gonna cost you $6000

Maybe this even:



At $12,000 its quite reasonable

Is that enough abalone for you?
