Has this made anyone else laugh?

"Okay guys, I want to have the ultimate arsenal of versatility!! My uber-versatile cover-everything group of three guitars is going to be:

1) An Ibanez RG350 with DiMarzios

2) An Ibanez RG350 with DiMarzios

3) An Ibanez RG350 with DiMarzios"

I think you mistake me for someone who tries to impress other people on the board. I don't. I come here to join a community of like-minded and freakin' talented people and to have fun. I'm certainly not trying to impress you. I AM trying to impress UPON you that you need to change your attitude and behaviour on this board if YOU want to be taken seriously.

Funny thing is that you're not even the one who was asking for advice. You chime in, give your "preference", get offended at the advice of others, and then go off whining again and even tell people that they are full of crap. Was that really needed? Did you accomplish anything?

I personally think that the "you can't shine sh!te" is a bit harsh, as I don't think the < 5xx are that bad. But I respect people's opinions and will not attack them for saying that, even if I had one of those "sh!te" guitars.

Re: The RG-350 Experiment(s)

Since you are new, I'll explain how the boards work. If you ask for opinions, people will give them to you. You may not like what they have to say but that's no reason so get defensive. Remember, you asked for their opinion. Starting a thread here opens a dialog with one or more people, rarely will everyone agree on the topic. If you dont want to hear negative ideas about your plans, maybe you should reconsider posting them in a public place.

Absolutely agree dude. My point was exactly that...that people dont bother to look for the real message. And Ryan350 I dont even know who you're talking to at this point, lol.

There are people everywhere willing and jumping at the opportunity to misinterpret what you said and start some crap. As fun and informative as forums are that's the one thing i've always hated. No matter how innocently or literally you say something theres always a few people who are gonna take offense if you dont specifically point out that this is just in YOUR opinion. I guess because people see others disagree with their opinion and if it looks like it might possibly be meant that the person believes what they say is fact they feel threatened and have to attack. It's kind of sad because it should be obvious that something you say about a particular guitar or topic IS your opinion...maddox's article on that says it best:

Mods if posting that satire link isnt allowed or something lemme know and I'll edit my post. It's worth readin' for a good laugh, plus it's on topic .

I'm not shocked at all by this. This is the same schmuck who started a thread to show what a gear god he/she was by dissing someone else's MIM Strat, and then deleted his posts when he didn't get any support from others on the board.

That much I'll agree with...if you literally say "what do you guys think" then respect people's opinions. I don't agree with people that said stuff like "you cant shine s***"...because from personal experience and comparisons I've seen that a mid range RG with some high quality mods can be a great guitar that to my ears comes about 85-90% close to the quality of tone a JEM gets, but I respect their right to say and write what they want. Elcid's totally right on this one...when you ask for opinions dont whine that they're not all "yeah man that's totally awesome do it!".

My crap was crap written with me on your side lol. I had an RG350 with modded pickups and trem and it sounded and played amazingly well and only ended up costing me under 500. Dude, no one but you has to be happy with your guitars. I wouldnt have bothered with custom built guitars (that dont hold their value, and in many cases really arent even re-sellable) if I were satisfied with what stock guitars offered me, so ignore what everyone else says. I dont even understand why people say that crap about like "oh dude if you build a custom it wont have good resale value" when for almost everyone who goes about it the point of a custom is to get EXACTLY what you want in a guitar because what you want isnt offered in a Guitar Center store. You're not going to WANT to resell it if all goes well. I know I wouldnt part with mine for any amount of money, even though I know there might be prettier and higher quality guitars out there because these are 100% what I want, no more and no less.

You're gonna be playing the guitar, and all that matters if that YOU like it. It's certainly nice to get compliments on a guitar that you either built or customized, that always feels good, but whats most important is that you get what you want.
