i know everyone like differant things. This post is not ment to bash any brand.
I played a PRS cu22 for a while and decided I wanted a Les Paul. Sold the PRS. After taking 4 differant les Paul's home I just couldn't connect with a LP. Found a guy that wanted to trade a PRS sc55 for my LP. I'm actually very happy the Les Paul ordeal is over.

I have an EKO ghost vi that I have a love-hate relationship with.

I got it cuz I was looking for a 3 pickups guitar that wasn't just a strat.
like the pickups and faux-bigsby

it's the neck and headstock I have a problem with
it's so heavy, when I let go of the neck, it falls south
and I spend energy just holding the neck when I play

so, I raised the action and use it as a lapsteel in E minor

I bought an American series strat 2001. My first "real" electric. I got it for 800 new. Wasn't wild about the color. I think they called it Aqua Marine Metallic. It had a satin maple Modern C neck. I hated the pencil thin neck, I hated the color. It just didn't have any life to it.dont miss it one bit.

About a year ago I got the lust for a PRS.
Bought a DGT.
It was gone inside of a month.
Couldn't really say a bad thing about it. Just couldn't bond with it.

I guess I was glad to get rid of my first guitar, a Sears catalog acoustic. The neck was warped and pulling out of the body. But, now, I wish I had kept it.

tried Les Pauls twice as i love the sound and of course many of my fav guitar players use them. just couldn't bond with either and i find them hard to play for some reason (tilted neck is big part of it.). fine with the 61 spec SGs but just can't play LPs.

A 2000 US Strat I bought new and recently sold. Sounded great (Rio Grande pups), but I couldn't get over the modern C neck no matter how I tried. 15 years worth of trying, and now a nice guy in TX has her.

I've had several EBMM guitars over the years. While they are very nice instruments, I am always never sad or remorseful when they leave. I am doubtful I will buy one again. They just don't work for me.

"I always thought red was a tone color..."

My first guitar. A Supro with one pickup at the neck with stick-on foil on the pickup to mimic a real pickup.

Biggest POS ever. The only good thing about that guitar was that it was red.

Early-mid USA strat deluxe. UGH ! Why i made the mistake of buying that thing i'll never know. Horrible neck, thin tone even after ripping out the noiseless garbage and putting in van zandts. Worse start i ever owned. My MIM classics have all been far better.

I had a MIM HH Stat of an undetermined year a few years ago. It was a buddy's guitar that I saved from a pawn shop. I liked the way it looked because it was the same color scheme as my Telecaster. I just couldn't get along with the pick-ups and eventually sold it back to my friend who was more than happy to get it back.

Godin LGX. Cool features. Sounded pretty good. It just wasn't the vibe I was looking for. Not a bad guitar, just wasn't for me.


(not mine, but it was similar)

Seriously. You see this at one of your better local emporia fresh in on trade. A one owner Casino in a unique factory torquoise and Bigsby configuration made at the fabled Peerless factory! How could you not buy it? Of course I bought it.
Big disappointment. Every piece of hardware on the guitar was worn clean out. Even after a great deal if setup, the Bigsby was unusable. The tuners were jerky and loose. The bridge wobbled and leaned. The nut was worn.
It would have taken better than $500 to bring it up to snuff with even average hardware. No way I'm sinking $500 into a $500 guitar.
Too bad. It's probably a decent guitar but the hardware was just awful.

Same here.. Steve Lukather is one of my favorite guitar players and I kind of tried to forced myself to like the "Luke" guitar, I owned 5 until I decided it was time to just go another route. And even thou I had some limited edition and nice color Lukes, I didn't have a hard time letting em go.

Still looking for the right Les Paul. I actually had a good one, a '90 Standard, but it needed a fret job. I was on the fence about being "a Les Paul guy" so I sold it rather than pay for a refret. I've tried a 2006 Historic R6 and a 2011 Traditional w/Bigsby since, and they paled in comparison.

I've gone through so many other guitars, looking for "a good one"......1987 SG Custom, 1988 ES-335, Mark Knopfler Strat, two Eric Johnson Strats, two PRS McCartys, CE22, Mira, 1964 ES-125 TCD....man, the list goes on and on....guitars that might blow someone else away that just didn't feel right to me.

Oh, hell yeah. I bought it the minute I saw it. Looked it over and saw the Peerless code. No brainer. Very unique color and Bigsby to boot. How could you go wrong?...

I have 3 electrics and 1 acoustic...I love them...I would part with any of them for the right price...

I don't get attached to things as they are just tools...

It was an LP p90 special. Liked the neck. And the lightweight. But not the pickups. Ended trading up plus some cash for a standard. Couldn't be happier. Tone is much better.
