Default Favorite Guitar Company


I am bored. So I have decided out of curiosity and boredom to ask forum members favorite guitar company and why.

Personally my favorite is Jackson mainly because of the slim necks and overall shred feel (I know thats a poor description. Close runner up would be Washburn because of the great natural sustain and craftsmanship but the neck thickness gets annoying.

I like ESP's, I have two of them (an old 'Junior' strat-type) and an M-II. Similar to Jackson in regards to the neck thickness, they're slim and nice. I also have a Jackson 'Kelly' explorer loaded with EMG's which I use for other tunings (I usually tune my ESP's to D, and the Kelly to C). I also like Ibanez, but I sold the one I had some years ago.

I own an Ibanez and no matter what everyone else says it has a pretty good feel to it, and it looks nice.

I also own a BC Rich, and ever though it was under $200 it still plays very very nice, although the tone isn't too good and it's got a lot of splinters in the body.

I would like to own a Schecter. From what I've played, there guitars are top-notch.

Jackson are very good, as are ESP, but I've only played a couple of guitars from those brands.

Gibson, no matter what other people say, are very nice, also.

I've also heard that Schecter make very good guitars, and also within the budget of most people. They also look very good imo. Gibson is the granddaddy of them all, too bad they're so overpriced.

Personally I prefer Fender over Gibson think about it if gibson are so much more creative why is the stratocaster the all time number one design. Also I don't hate Gibson just some employees who try to brag.

Yeah actually I poorly worded that but still underlining it is a good point.

no, we are laughing because it's fucking retarded.

The stratocaster is the most overrated instrument ever among older people.

i like Schecter, because they have lots of great models but also some kick ass models for begginers that doesnt cost too much, plus they have a stock depot in montreal so when you want a guitar thats not in store it doesnt take too much time to receive!

I've never heard Gibson say anything of the sort, but you have to admit, when speaking of classic guitar designs, you have to take into account the effect the Les Paul, Explorer and Flying V has had on music, not to mention Metal.
