Buying first guitar... help please
Choosing a guitar is one of the most important choices a young man can make in life. *Getting into a good college, staying out of trouble, finding a nice spouse and raising a family are all very important....almost as important as choosing the right guitar.
(Yes- I have issues. LOL)
Kidding aside, I concur with what Rich said. *Go and play all 3 until the store closes. *Only then will you find the one that you want to plop cash down on.
I've seen hardcore blues guys with JS1000's and shred-fu masters with LesP*uls. *Hell- David Allen Coe's been seen with a JEM!!! *Don't let someone else's stigma sway your decision- find a comfy one and you'll be happy for a long time.
