I have an emotional attachment with the ebony Les Paul with the cream pickguard and Stratocasters, in general. The Les Paul's are just so beautiful and the Strats just feel so good.

However, I love the Ibanez Iceman...that guitar is visually ****ing cool and it sounds pretty good.

When it comes to Ibanez...i prefer the artcore...as i said

but i'm prolly gonna go out and get an Epi Explorer next....redo all the electronics and slap some EMG's or somethin on it.....

i think people seriously underrate the possibility of lower brand guitars...because they dont realize they can modify it and make it almost as good, if not just as good, as a top brand

i'd say:

Epi Casino (Vintage Sunburst)
12-String Gretch (Ebony)
Gibson Firebird V (Vintage Sunburst)
Les Paul (White w/ Gold Hardware)

all electric...

thats at the top of the list...

i should probably learn how to play the guitar decently first...lol

.... except you gotta pay almost as much to get the modifications to get it as good as a top brand....

No amount of electronic modification will give a guitar the same feel as a top end model from say, ibanez or even BC Rich.

Sure, you might get the sound a lot better, and you could spend a whole heap of cash on new hardware for it, but at the end of it all you're still going to be constrained by how that particular neck and body joint feel in the hands.

Strats are good guitars. Pretty universal, you can do pretty much anything on it pretty well.

well....i'd have to say that i'm quite use to really hard setups...so for me the issue of how it feels isnt quite as big (altho it still has a major effect on playing). the big reason i'm even getting an epi explorer is purely a cheap way of getting a nice metal sound, as every single guitar in my entire house is entirely made to play blues and classic rock. plus, it supplies what u may want to call a "beater" guitar. its just a cheap effective way of getting a guitar for something specific....and epiphone really isnt as bad as anyone says. if it works its fine for me.
