Default I need to buy a guitar within the next few days: Which GIBSON?

Hey folks,

Im still havent choosen, which Gibson I would prefer. I mainly play "the jazzzzz" so I was thinking something like the ES 335?

I would prefer it would end up under $2000.

I have went through all local stores and didnt find one which suited my needs so Im prepared to buy online.

Your time is appreciated!

Cheers,
Thom

OK, here's what you should do: Quit jazz, buy a flying v, start the greatest metal band ever and then beat the devil in a rock-off.

You can follow my advice or you can just buy a guitar.

Your choice.

Why would anyone regress to give up jazz to play metal? Its like deciding on your 21st birthday that you want to go through puberty all over again.

Because Heavy Metal is the way little boys help themselves deal with the hormonal upheaval that causes them to hump their pillows in the middle of the night. Seriously, I love Metal to death (pun intended). I just know that Die-hard metal heads are the fundamentalists of the music world, so I feel the need to try to piss them off whenever I can.

Wow, thats pathetic.


As for threadstarter - Don't just look at gibsons. Particularly because their quality control is all over the place and you could very well end up with a total lemon unless you play hundreds and find a really good one.

Ibanez makes some most excellent guitars right now, they'd be my first choice.

Go down to your local shop and pick out some guitars you like the look of, regardless of brand, and play them. You may also be surprised at how good solid body guitars are for jazz, so don't just limit yourself to semi hollows like the 335.

For an example, my S2170FW is a solid body mahogany guitar, but its pretty much the most versatile guitar I've ever played, and jazz happens to be one of the places where it shines most

Ibanez never did make nice looking guitars. The ES 335s on the other hand pphhhoorrr! But yeah you should own one of these at least at some point in your life.

Um, what? That might have been true in the mid 80's when all they made were lurid coloured shred guitars in hot pink and puke, but methinks you need to rethink your opinion of ibanez, given their current models.
