[Hobby] Guitar

200 posts in this topic

Not sure whether to make a separate thread or not, but this is guitar land.

Thinking of getting an electric to go with my acoustics. First things first I'm no Jimi.

So it doesn't have to have every feature, price limit will most likely be around

I don't really know, I mentioned the bands I'm playing to give an idea. Don't know what different sounds electrics punch out.

I would go for the epi les paul. Such a versatile guitar and well built aswell

Cheers bud.

Oh yeah, whoops I missed that :laugh:

Yeah out of all of those the Les Paul would suit the style you're looking for. What amp have you got/going to get? That makes a huge difference ;)

Ok, so after looking at amps I would definitely like some advice with them. I didn't think it would be such an expensive item, I figured I could just 'get a cheap one'.

Best place to find a decent cheapy?

I think some music should be posted so we can take a listen to what gets produced with all this expensive gear.:yes:

I did try guitar (and bass) quite a few years ago, but my fingers have a life of their own and I didn't get very far. Maybe i'll try again sometime.

I have an Epiphone AJ30CE that I've been playing for about 8 years.

It's Sunburst on top with mahogany back and sides.

Any other guitar players here? I've been playing 15 years. I play mostly metal, but a bit of everything else as well.

I play a left hand guitar.

Could anyone suggest a good left hand electric guitar to start up with?

I thought starting off acoustic was a good idea, too, but now I regret it. I originally bought myself a Fender acoustic for around

I actually own two guitars, started playing earlier this year.

I currently own two electric guitars

  • Squire Strat (the one from the beginners kit)
  • Epiphone Les Paul Studio Custom

My amp is the amp from the kit but I plan on getting a Line 6 Spider IV 75 :)

I also plan on picking up either a Schecter C-1 or a Schecter Hellraiser C-1 this holiday season.

I'm still trying to discover my style though.

Guys I need advice:

I'm thinking of getting a guitar just for hobby. Not planning to invest too much since I'm not sure I'll be serious about it, just want to start and see how it goes.

1. What hobby guitar to pick?

2. Do I need an amplifier or I can just plug it into my computer? (I'll be listening mostly on headphones since the neighbors are a bit picky)

I've played guitar for five years now, when I first started I played an ibanez electric guitar (I can't remember which model).

A few years ago, I changed to playing acoustic guitar and I now have a Cruiser Crafter guitar; it's a beautiful instrument to play!

I've played guitar since I was about 13 but switched over to bass after about 5-6 years. Then took a 12-15 year break, just got back into it about a year ago.

My current gear is a Jackson JS3 Kelly Bird IV (Transparent Blue Burst), Fender Rumble 150, D'Addario EXL165 strings, Gaines Audio Balanced Line Interface box. Using Ableton Live 9 for recording and some AKG K99's for monitoring (and keeping the wife from bitching) Looking to get a DigiTech BP90 multi-effects pedal soon.

Well, I refuse to let this topic die (although I had hoped for somebody else to post). I know there are other players here.

NBD (New Bass Day) a few weeks ago. Snagged a used (but like new) Squier Vintage Modified PJ bass for cheap and dropped a PJ set of EMG Geezer Butlers in it. Wow what a difference.

Family photo:

L-R is my Aria Pro II TSB-400, the Squier (mentioned above) and my precious... a Jackson JS3 Kelly Bird and the Fender Rumble. 150 watts of chest pounding 15" low end goodness. I'd like a GK head in the 2-500W range and a 4x10 cab, but the wife (and neighbors) thinks that the Rumble 150 is enough, I disagree, but ya gotta comprise in life.
