Guitar Manufacturer Poll.

Outside of Ibanez ,who I'm not including in this poll for obvious reasons, who is your favourite guitar Manufacturer? Maybe they are your fave even if Ibanez was included. Feel free to list guitars you own from your fave manufacturer and why you chose them. I could only list 15 options max here so apologies if I missed your favourite out.

My vote goes to Caparison. I used to own a Horus Blacknight GH model. Awesome guitar in my humble opinion. Playability was as good as anything I've ever played. I'm gonna purchase one again as soon as I get the cash sorted out.

Red face Re: Guitar Manufacturer Poll.

I'll get killed here, but my choice is Peavey...Simply because of the Cropper Classic they used to make! GREATEST guitar ever made without a Floyd IMHO I used to own 5, had to sell and it broke my heart. I am going to look for used ones right now!!

Re: Guitar Manufacturer Poll.

I've been most impressed with the top end ESPs I've seen lately. I like Suhr's a lot too, but although I really respect their construction, I find them all lacking in the "excitement" department, each guitar is brilliant, but I've not seem one that I simply "must have" or anything more "run of the mill" that there isn't something that does the job from someone else already.

Re: Guitar Manufacturer Poll.

Wow! I was surprised when I saw the poll, I thought I was in the minority for Jackson's.

Re: Guitar Manufacturer Poll.

Fender. I truly love my PRSi, but they're a bit too friendly (if you know what I mean). The Fenders fight back enough to let you know you've been playing.

As we all know, NO manufacturer makes that any more Hamer won't do super strats anymore, even for endorsing artists.

Re: Guitar Manufacturer Poll.

I chose PRS, why? Well, because I have to admit that playing one is sublime. I've never tried a Tom Anderson or Suhr and only lower range ESP guitars. Jacksons can be cool too. But I have played quite a few PRS guitars and I loved every one of them. However I think their prices are exorbitant and that they are a very ****y company, as represented by PRS himself. Not to mention that they have such a terrible roster of artist signatures besides DiMeola and Santana, and the Di Meola is a hideous guitar. But besides all that they are nice. But I still prefer my Ibanez.
