Ibanez (yeah, right), Gibson, Epiphone, Pearl, Yamaha, TAMA. You get the picture, crappest brand of instrument (any instrument, guitar, bass, drums, anything.)

This should start some fights.


Anyway, I pic ashton. australian brand, great for beginners but for someone playing for a while its pretty meh. i guess i should be patriotic and stand up for my country, but whatever.

Oh yeah, i couldnt be rooted doin a search, so if this thread already exists, oopsy daisy.

I dont think those cheap unknown begginer guitars should really count. There's alot of those that are obviously going to suck.

My least favorite has to be fender. It isn't exactly bad, but it just isn't my cup of tea.

Fender is shite, Yamaha is shite, B.C. Rich piss me off, Washburn are shite and Peavey also piss me off.

I myself still have my cheap beginner's guitar that oddly enough is still in one piece. ( I , on more than one occasion have someone dropped the thing from the bed of our truck and I think I kicked it off stage one day too....I used it for basically anything that may hurt my other guitar )

I also have an Epiphone Les Paul something or rather ( it's my guitar teacher's , I bought it off him yay!)

Fenders are okay if you steer away from the cruddy 'Strat' beginners guitars and get an actual Stratocaster.

The Stratocaster's single coils are godly for cleans, but I prefer humbuckers when it comes to distortion.

I dont like Fenders but Ibanez's rock. I have an offbrand but its a Les Paul rip off its kickass tho.

I also don't like Fender... its the was how they look, they're expensive (you have to pay sometimes to much for the name...) and the sound isnt that, what i'm looking for :p

My best guitar's a Yamaha. And I have a Les Paul and Stratocaster to compare it to. Sometimes the cheap ones give you a nice sound...

You can't buy class, but you can bluff it with a Gibson

HONDO.....


I agree 100%

Hondo basses suck ass, I feel sorry for anyone that buys one.
I still have my old one, it is pure shit.
There are two cracks in the wood coming from the bridge,
there is a crack on the tuning heads, and the electronics went out.
I always got pissed at it, and smashed it on stuff, so there's about six HUGE chips in it.
The only reason I still have it, is so I can try taking the frets off.

As a bass player, I'd have to say Fender, purely because their basses are either Jazzes or Precisions. There's 40+ Fender basses, and 98% of them are modifications on either the Precision design or the Jazz. "Closet Classic" my ass, it's a Precision that has better specs.

Stagg....for drum hardware anyway. Their cymbals aren't too shoddy for the price.

Only properly played fenders.

Played a tele, a jap strat, and a copy (squire).

Hope to get an american strat, 599. Possibly slightly paying for the label but fuck it, I need to stick to a fender for the moment.
