In the past 36 months, I've had 97 different guitars. The cheapest one was $50, the most expensive one was $5,600. Still have about 30 of them. I've had fun buying, selling, trading, and playing them all and don't really give a flying fornication what anyone thinks about it.
Yep. Those that have the skills can play anything and make music on it. Those that don't...talk about it.
I totally agree. I played some fairly expensive guitars that day, and the little Mustang was my favorite by a long stretch. I didn’t buy it since I have an older Mustang already, but for the price of an effects pedal, I might go ahead and get one. Super fun little guitar.
This guitar is definitely a work of art.
Art is primarily to be looked at. A guitar is designed to be listened to. When a guitar becomes a work of art it’s a shame. I suppose I’d concede that some guitars are designed to be visually as well as aurally pleasing, but I would never put a mass produced Strat in that category. If it’s beautiful looking, and I think it is, it’s a side benefit of it’s practical design features.
had one of those, is it a bit like the old Honda 125? Always fancied a Benton Davidson.
You’re just a Strat guy.
You were, though, suffering withdrawal symptoms after so long away from your guitars back hone.
And that, Sir, sums it up!
Spent a week now playing my AmPro Tele. Just picked up my Affinity Tele. Nice little guitar, good value, looks and sounds OK but.............the only way to make it objectively play and look the same as the Pro would be to replace the neck, even if for one with the same dimensions but with rolled edges and better finished fretwork, replace the tuners with much lower ratio smoother ones, replace the pots with smoother ones, put a better quality guard on, put a better jack socket on so that the plug doesn’t regularly work lose and become intermittent and...................well, you get the idea, and this is only the stuff that equates to tangible quality, accepting that sound quality with regard to tone, is subjective.
Suhr Turd....................still giggling, love it!
Oh, now I get it, cocks........inadequate, it’s the old size discussion!
Tone is subjective, I agree. I had a great setup/pickups and strings put on my Squier Affinity. I love it. I could just never really get a sound that I loved on my Fender. That’s not to say I don’t like Fender. I could buy a new Fender and may fall in love with it, but the Fender I have just doesn’t fit the bill for my hands, or sound. It’s all a personal preference. Someone may find your Affinity Tele to be just the guitar that they were looking for.
Well my fender or Burny was still not good enough...for them.
If the neck doesn’t feel right from the get go, if it doesn’t feel good in your hands, then you’re almost, or I dare say never, gonna like it. I’ve heard more people not be pleased with high quality guitars than I have with guitars that are less expensive. There’s a guy that played in a famous country band for 25 years or longer. To my knowledge, Never toured with a super expensive guitar. I believe he told me he bought it new for $400 dollars? Used a Delta Blues 210 for 15 years all over.
That's ma'am... but I'm glad we're in agreement!
Sorry, no intention to be sexist, didn’t pick up on your avatar or the ‘rache’ (Rachel).
