Why does used guitars sound better than brand new ones?
whenever i touch my 7 years old guitar, which is heavily played and abused, if sounds wonderful, the way i bend the strings on it, the vibrato is full of life, unlike my new jem though, its not like the guitar sounds bad or plays bad, the JEM is wonderful, but i just feel better with the old guitar, is there any other reason why old guitars sound better other than the fact that we get used to them?
+ i feel that the old guitar became an extension of my body. i hope this happens with my jem though.
i had a weird experience a few monthes ago, i went to my Ibanez dealer, and found a used rg3120 i just grabbed it and played and it felt wonderful, now i didnt get used to that guitar, but why did it feel so gr8? cos it is used?
