What type of guitars do you all play?

Recommended Posts

I'm sure there's got to be a bunch of guitarists on this forum. And since you all have such good taste in DAWs I was wondering what your guitar tastes were.

 

I've got a PRS SE Custom which I love because I think it is the best $500 guitar on the market, and I like Paul Reed Smiths.

 

And I've got a Martin 000C-16RGTE that I love because I think it sounds exactly like an acoustic guitar should.

 

What about you guys?

I've got a nice, though modest compared to some, selection, all offering different sonic colours to my palate. Hope this pic isn't too large. The nylon string is a Hanika PC54, made in Germany, the OM is a Lakewood, also made in Germany, the one on the right side of the couch is an Ibanez Studio ST55. The rest should be recognizeable.

I play Pretty Ones. :lol:

 

Seriously

 

I like Deans and Ibanez's myself.

I've only played one Dean, and I didn't like it. But, it was a cheap one, so I can't really base my opinion on that.

 

I've always like Ibanez guitars though. Even the cheaper ones still play and sound good.

Modded Mexican Strat (my first guitar, and I just can't put it down for long)

1984 Westone Dynasty ... I got this one in pieces with no electronics and a replacement neck .... eventually I put it back together ... awesome tone, but doesn't play as nicely as I hoped that it would.

that cort bass looks pretty cool, seagate ... I don't know much about cort ... how is it??

 

I guess the pickup config is what appeals to me at first, but the offset fret dots are a nice touch as well. Is the neck more like a P-bass or Jazz Bass?

I've been an Ibanez user since 1977 so I better stick to that family tradition. I use an RG750 as my main workhorse but I need a second RG for live purposes (good to have two guitars on stage) so I'm looking for an RG2525Z or something similar.

 

What I like about most Ibanez guitars is the versatility, a lot of sounds from the humbucker/single coil configurations. That and the wizard necks are a joy to play.

I play:

 

Larrivee OM-03 MT Forum II Guitar

Larrivee L-03 Silver Oak

Squier Butterscotch Tele with a vintage strat size P-90 PUP in the bridge and the original PUP in the neck position and sperzel locking tuners. now I knwo what you are saying...Squier...blech...but I play it througha 1970 Fender Deluxe Reverb which is all original except for the speaker which I had to replace. I think the amp matters to your tone more than the guitar.

I use a MIJ Strat with a maple neck. I find Maple necks record better and work well with Guitar Rig 3.

 

I really like Jazzmasters. I find the pickups work well with recordings and have a good balance without doing too much work to them.

 

Again, I think they work well with Amp sims as well.

Ibanez RGA321 FSB (the blue one), strung with 12-52's and with SD Jazz & JB pickups. my main recording guitar.. it sounds nice as hell. it has a nice sustain and really rich tone. fixed bridge. i love it :)

it really has a great sound. the pickups are set low and are low output, so the string vibrate like crazy, and the overdrive is softer. which i prefer for recording anyway, it gives me a chunky fat sound. i love this guitar

flamed maple on mahogany

 

Ibanez RG2120X (the green one) my first good guitar. strung with 10's and equipped with DiMarzio AirNorton & SS. the tremolo is BLOCKED with a nice chunk of wood. :) its the best neck ive ever played (its a fat ibanez neck. its somewhere like average strat, but smoother). its really the best neck. i keep it because of the neck and PIEZO system. and because i dont have a heart to sell it.

mahogany. sounds nice, too bad it has a trem :(

 

 

Ibanez RG2027x (SOLD!) was equipped with same PU's as 2120x.

 

i also have an ibanez SR505.

amp: mesaboogie Quad into Mesaboogie 50/50 into Celestion V30+CL80

 

i hate tremolos. and i hate RG 550. i hate ibanez super wizard necks. i hate ibanez solidcolor guitars. :)

if i had money i'd get a PRS semihollow or Parker Fly.

Yeah, I sold all my amps year ago when I got really good with Guitar Rig basically.

 

I find super things strings, maple neck, really give Guitar Rig a lot more clarity.

 

When used with an amp, it sounds quite harsh though.
