We love guitars. Here's a little appreciation.
you're among friends, i dont like ibanez either.
Woohooo! Don’t get me wrong, some of them are very nice, the majority play awful. I had an RG370DX (not the top model, I know) and it played awful. The floyd copy was shockingly bad, the neck was uncomfy and it fet very fragile!

Whats your favourite guitar brand?
Well, it’s very genre dependent and mood dependent. I really like the PRS brand for general rock, for metal I’m gonna have to say ESP or Mayonnes. Jackson all have a place in my heart because a jackson was my first ‘real’ guitar. I love all types really :) (don’t like ibanez though!)

“We all know ESP as the company that provides axes of destruction to the likes of Kirk Hammett, Stephen Carpenter and Andy James, not to mention the rest of us, courtesy of the lower-priced Standard Series. But at April’s Musikmesse Frankfurt, the company unveiled a major rebranding strategy that will see E-II on the headstock of the Standard, and no ESP. From 2014, the only ESP-Branded guitars will be Japanese Custom Shop models, whilst the current ESP standard series will halt production. The new E-II models will occupy the space between LTD’s more affordable guitars and the Custom Shop models. The ESP Standard series will still be available while stocks last, so if you must have a mid-priced guitar with ESP on the headstock, now is the time to hit the shops.

Voice your opinion below, Is it a good idea, is it not?
Been playing around on the Frank Montag virtual guitar creator. I wanted to see how true to live these guitars could be and I’ve gotta say, I’m blown away. I tried to mirror the ESP Eclipse-1 CTM Vibrato and apart from the fretboard inlays which looked better in gold, I’ve got it almost lifelike! Fantastic website if you’re bored and wanna play around with some guitars. Take a look here and submit any creations you’ve made!
RIP Jeff Hanneman. Thrash won’t be the same, he’s gone to the great jamming session in the sky!
Would you only buy someones signature guitar if you liked the guitarist/band, or would you buy it anyway if you liked it?
