Default The Shred Thread.

Recently, I've been guitar shopping/fucking around in guitar center and I've played some really REALLY awsome guitars. One of the most recent was the Ibanez RGA121. The thing is amazingly playable.....moreso than my ESP Custom...and it's got a great tone and everything....in my opinion, it's what I and most people I know would consider an extremely shreddable guitar.

Now this is not to say that my ESP doesn't shred because let me tell you....it shreds like a beast. I also have a lower end Ibanez RG350DX on layaway at Guitar Center. For only being 335 bucks....the thing plays like a dream. It actually played better than a PRS I played. (and this wasn't a low end SE PRS...this was the real deal.....about 1800 bucks worth of the real deal). The thing is amazing.

So...as a result of my shopping/fuckingaround, I have come to the conclusion that Ibanez guitars are officially the most shreddable guitars on the market today. If any of you beg to differ....or please share......and include pictures....


RG350DX>>>



RGA121>>>


Post also if you have an extremely playable/shreddable guitar as well....I want to see them...

i agree about them being the most shredable, a lot of shredders use them..me personally, i love the feeling, i can always feel like i can play faster.

I'm not big on shredding, not that I don't admire players that can use speed to their advantage (like John Mcclaughlin) I just dislike players who play fast just for the sake of doing it, or more or less players who feel the urge to play every note as fast as they can just to impress, without considering how damn horrible it sounds, like Rusty Cooley.

I do like Steve Vai, who has the abillity to play really fast but remaining creative and melodic at the same time, at least when he chooses to be.

But I'd be damned if I didn't admit that shreders tend to have the coolest guitars.

Few guitars beat a Fender.

The Powerhouse Strat is amazing.

I've always wanted a 555-BK.
I got to play one once at a show, and it was just the sexiest thing ever.
