Re: Ever bought a guitar and hated it?
I hated the trem on my EX170 and have always felt that it hampered my learning, and that made me not like the guitar. As a kid, I was always fiddling with it, and thus going out of tune. If my first guitar had been a hardtail I think I would have started better. But....in the late 1980's and as a EVH fan there was no way I'd buy one.
When I was shopping for my first "expensive" guitar (that's relative, to me it was $800) I went into GC and played everything. I went with the "I don't care what it looks like, if it plays well buy it". I walked out with a Dean Dimebag tribute Dean From Hell. Played great, loved the sound....but the look just eventually got to me. I just couldn't get over the thought of everyone expecting me to bust out Cowboys From Hell. So I traded it on an explorer.
