The prized possession thread had alot of people express how much they love their guitars. I though that there should be a place to show them off on GB, as even non-players can appreciate the beauty of a well crafted instrument. So get to it!
I'm considering getting either an Ibanez (SGE130), an Epiphone (Masterbilt AJ-500M), a Seagull (S6 GT) or a Blueridge (BG-40) guitar for my next acoustic which I'd like to buy in the next few months. All those guitars would be a step up from the one I'm using (an Epiphone DR-100 which I've pretty much destroyed in the years I've owned it).
" @nintendoeats: I've had 2 so far, what I've liked is they fair much better than other guitars at their price and usually work for metal music, but I haven't tried like a 1,000$ guitar before so my opinion's kinda limited D: "
" @armaan8014 said:haha :D no that isn't the case here thankfully." @nintendoeats: Thanks :) No it's not sticker - ish, it isnt separate.. "Nice. I have a mandolin that looks ok until you get up close and realize that the sound hole just a s a big plastic label under the finish. Not flattering. "
The switch on the top of the guitar is to turn on the 'rhythm circuit', which uses only the neck pick-up and has it's own volume and tone controls. The 3 switches at the bottom are 'bass inhibitor' on/off, neck pick-up on/off and bridge pick-up on/off. these three use the chrome volume and tone knobs.
@cnlmullen: Are you going with sunburst for sure? I personally can't stand sunburst. Actually, I would also never buy a guitar over the internet (got to play it first). "I don't like sunburst if the gradient is too sharp / the contrast is too pronounced. I'm leaning more towards a dark violin sunburst with the SGT130 -- I like how it looks. Darker colors match my clothing style / complexion better than traditional tan (I'd never buy a solid black guitar because I associate that with country -- I play fingerstyle folk). Also, I've played all these models in various stores, which is why I'm considering buying them (the local stores here price match websites, so unless the store model has taken a real beating I'll buy it there).
