Need Wise Advice Concerning J-Custom purchase
I have a few guitars. *More than some, less than most. *Whenever I'm looking at purchasing a new guitar, I look at the guitars I already own more carefully. *Certaining the smell, and touch of a NEW guitar has been known to render men thoughtless. *However, I look at trying to find a guitar different from the others I have. *Either different necks, or woods, or electronics, etc.
Look around the used guitar market for sure. You'll get more bang for your buck. *DON"T SPEND IT ALL! *Glen's absolutely correct. *Save some dough for down the line. *You never know, you may use it to finance your demo some day.
Look for a guitar that can fascilitate you becoming a better player. *Look for a 7 string? *Look for a piezo equipped guitar? *Something that can help you broaden your horizons. *With your comments about classical training and Vai playing, you're in the right direction. *
Be sure to find people to jam with as well. *My mother always told me if you're gonna play an instrument, "It's better to play with a group, than play with yourself!" *LOL
Good luck and be sure to tell us what decision you make!
