Devotion to one type of guitar



Devotion to one type of guitar

Postby psychopomp95 » Sat Jan 15, 2005 8:57 pm

Out of all the people here who own axes, is there anyone who will ONLY play Fenders/Les Pauls/etc, or inversely, who simply WON'T play any one type of guitar? ;) What's your 'flavour', basically?
I have a big preference for Fenders or otherwise guitars that have been modelled after Fenders (Ibanez is good in my book for heavier rock playing) - not that I have anything against others but the Strat simply feels so NATURAL to me! :D I like smaller guitars, ones that my hands can cover all parts of easily... and my favorite guitar tone, when it gets down to it, is a Strat, straight into any amp with a decent amount of distortion, the pickup selector at the bridge and the tone knob at 10. :D THAT is the sound of rock, to me!
There's no guitar I 'won't' play on principle, but some I don't prefer to - Les Pauls are one. Nice guitars and they get a great lead sound (very different from the Strat - not a natural guitar sound really, but it turns the guitar into an almost violin-ish thing!), but I just don't find them very comfortable. The weight imbalance pulls them down to one side which is rather distracting, and it just feels so much wider on the body side than on the neck, as well. :p My arm feels kinda 'lost' in these surroundings, LOL! I don't mind hollowbody guitars being heavier, since the weight DOES seem to be balanced more (it's not the weight that's the problem after all, it's the one side slipping downward!), and also, the sound is so massively different from a Strat that it's worth the extra weight! Whereas a Les Paul isn't so different that I'd feel compelled to use them. :P
Other thoughts?

Hi Psyco...

I recently started playing in a Yes Tribute Band, and I guess I've been unconciously planning this for years. Below is what I've accumulated, and so far almost all of it has come into play. I say anything that will stay in tune has a use. My stuff:

Ben Franklin discovered it, but it took Bob Moog to find it's proper use.

Fender Jazz Bass for me. While I love Precisions ( older makes ), nothing touches the Jazz. Rick's are nice, but since I'm not Chris Squire, I'll leave that rather unique sound all to him. Hey, is this an all 6-string thread????? Forgive the intrusion if it was meant to be.

Popular as the Stratocaster is, I've never been able to play one very well, as the volume knob gets in my way.

I don't have any name brand prejudices, but I will not pick up an axe that looks like a heavy metal weapon - you know, the goofy flying-Vs, the spaceships, the machetes, or whatever. The sort of guitar that automatically makes your lip curl and your hair grow when you touch it. Watch out for the designer stripes as well.

[quote="psychopomp95"]Looking for a singer/songwriter who likes all those bands too, Doc? :D England wouldn't be such a tough move for me! :p Heck, I've lived there once already!
LOL.... in all seriousness, if/when I do come back there, whether it be for living/vacation/whatever, we should try meet up.... we can jam to the aforementioned bands, have a few pints, and debate the finer points of Steve Howe and Trevor Rabin's playing. ]

That sounds like a really cool plan chap. I would love to meet up and jam one day in the future. Hell it has even given me some incentive to get playing again! A few pints and discussing the relative merits of Steve and Trevor? Now that would be fun ;-)

I have 4 guitars.

An Ibanez starter acoustic
A black strat
A Takamine elec/acoustic
A Gibson ES-175dSH

I find myself mostly playing the Tak and the Gibson. I do love the strat. It's easy to play, sounds great, and is excellent for sustained parts, but I find my self to be one of those tone snobs, so it goes without saying that on the 175, I have .012-.052s on it and I use 1mm picks. It sounds great plugged in with a clean tone (too bad I broke my amps' preamp board). It's got a really great jazz sound.

I used to have a Rickenbaker.I read an artical ln guitar player mag Where the reporter asked Chris What was in his floor pedal box.He said normal stuff and a few trade secrets.He has not changed much.My theory is Chris is the first bassist in proggesvie rock and laid out on the map :)

Psssst.

I've got a new PRS guitar everyone (well new to me!).

I've also got a Bad Cat Hot Cat 15 amp and a Line 6 POD Pro Live.

Now if I had:

a) a band
b) the enthusiasm
c) some talent

Life would be dandy.
