Your favorite era of guitars?

Mine is the early 90's. None of my newer guitars come close to my '90 Charvel or my '93 RG470.

Late 80's early 90's is my favorite era. Lots of wild colors and pointy headstocks.

I had a '56 Strat. So I can definitely see where the love of vintage teles comes from.

But seeing as I currently own two '89 RG750s, a '93 Parker, five original Universes, an RT650, and an '89 floral - I'd have to honestly say it's "late eighties/early nineties".

My dads Hamer Daytona is probably the single nicest guitar I have ever played. I think he paid all of about $300 for it. :O

Re: Your favorite era of guitars?

Two Eras - growing up in the sixties when music was evolving at a faster rate and the cool Fenders and Gibsons and Martin Guitars.

The Present- don't know about real expensive acoustics or Arch Top Electrics BUT- I think some of the best Electric Solidbodies of all time are being made right NOW.

The CNC neck pockets , the ultra precision frets on the better guitars of today and the set necks and neck throughs were NOT this good in the 60s or probably the 50s either - just as with Amps ( ESPECIALLY AMPS!) there's a wide variety of really good precision instruments if you care and know where to look and what you need.

Now is a good time except as a writer/ player very hard to come up with stuff people haven't heard before............................THAT's the challenge.

Re: Your favorite era of guitars?

Well I would have to say mid 80's to mid 90's.....especially if they are pointy guitars. I have always had a soft spot in my heart for the B.C. Rich Ironbird and Warlock, Carvin X220(just like the v220 but pointier) and the Washburn AF40V(Ace Frehley model). I would love to see Washburn re-issue an updated AF40V as a bolt on with dual humbuckers and a better trem. It's hard to tell from looking at pics of it whether one could be made as a bolt on without too much body redesign.

Lately, I have been fiddling with the idea of buying a neck thru blank and cutting and shaping my own body wings to create my own updated AF40V. Of course I would have to send it away to have the routing done for the electronics cavity and pickup routes. Anyone know where I would send it to have a quality job done?

I think for me it would be the mid 80s Ibanez which makes me feel lucky to own 2 1986 Ibanez Roadstar ll RG530 models only offered in 2 colors and i have them both :-)
