What's your guitar??

I got a Schecter Omen-6 Diamond Series that I customized with an EMG-81 in the neck and EMG 64 in the bridge. And one very cool blue nob. I have gave it the name "God's Axe". What guitar you you playing?

i play a range of guitars, but the one i play most often also the one that has had the most work done to it is my epiphone les paul jnr special.....i completely gutted the guitar and rebuilt from scatch, it has 1 Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pro pickup (in the neck) that gives it a very grungy sound to it (slash from guns 'n' roses uses this) and a tweaked dimarzio norton dp160 in the bridge this gives me a more balanced sound that i use for playing melody riffs and solos, i dont use foot pedals so all the work is done by my pick-ups and a few tweaks on my amp........i've also got a gibson flying 'V' and a squier stratocaster, but they havn't been modded yet, they have just got your typical boring humbucking and single pick-ups, i gonna mod these some but that'll only be when i've got some cash........

damn, your stacked. I wish I had a flying V. Like the James Hetfield green lightning one he uses in Cunning Stunts. That would be sick.

you should talk to redwizard then, hes got a much better set than i have, apart from the 'V' the others are cheap guitars that have been modded or are in the process of being modded......thrice what amp have you got? mines just a simple 10 watt practice amp but when we (the band) play gigs we rent some hefty amps that do justice to what we play.........

I have only 2 guitars, being only an 8 month beginer. I own a metallic red Ibanex RG 120. Double-humbucker pick ups. And a Fender accoustic. 50 dollars, very good deal.

thats a point, i forgot i have a crappy spanish nylon strung accoustic guitar as well........its really a piece of shit but it does okay i guess.............can do a good metallica unforgiven accoustic with that all though it being a nylon strung guitar it has a totally different sound to a steel strung........

I only have one guitar...I feel so deprived now. Somebody send me one of theirs.
Mine's an Ibanez RG 170...I spent ALL my money on buying it and an amp...now I'm broke haha. Oh yeh but I steal my mothers classical guitar (she gets reeaaaaaally pissed off when I do that cos it was real expensive and she reckons I'm gonna break it) so yes.
Seriously though, you people up there with multiple guitars, either send me one or send me some money goddammit. Maybe I should get my lazy behind a job...
Stay metal \m/ \m/

i'm saving for a steel one, probably a yamaha or a fender.....i can't restring it because it would break my accoustic in half, they use different strengths of wood in steel (stronger wood) and nylon (softer wood) strung guitars......

I just started playing guitar not to long ago, but anyways I have A Squire Bullet with a Pevey Amp. Im saving my money so I can Get a line 6 amp and maybe a fender strocaster, but until then I have to learn more guitar. People keep telling me squire bullets suck because the pickups break too easily (or was that the squire strat?). Eh oh well, its a good starting guitar. I also have a hand made acoustic guitar that I bought in mexico.

I have a Takamine too. They are very good, dont you agree? There's just something in the way it rings that gives such an "Unforgiven" sound. And affordable

How much was that? It likes like a prize piece of work. You best friend. Check out my best friend I just bought after saving a shitload of money. Yes, The Kirk Hammett KH-2 ESP with the bones and skull frets. And its loaded with two EMG 84s. I have absolutly no buyers remorse.
