    Yep. Rock an ES and people think you're serious. Same goes for a 6120 in my experience.

    At my church, my friend's Ibanez Joe Satriani White pointy special got all sorts of attention immediately. My Fender Custom Shop 60's relic that I paid close to $3000 for almost goes unnoticed. That's it, I'm selling that POS! .... not!

    Despite my Gretsch, SG, and Sunburst Casino (with Bigsby), I still get people talking about the Classic Vibe Telecaster I played for 1 gig... 14 months ago...

    Guitars that sound good usually get the most compliments

    From non musicians: My flying V

    From musicians: My mid 90's ESP Mirage (It really sounds great)

    My Les Paul always gets way more comments than any other guitar I play ... for both looks and sound.

    My Eastwood Sidejack.

    Sad, I've had some nice guitars - Les Pauls, a ES-335, several telecasters, strats, etc.

    But this guitar just catches people's attention. Helps that it also sounds amazing now that I've stuck lollars in it.

    ^ Yeah, people love big semi-hollows and hollowbodies, especially in bright colors. When I started rocking my Gibson Tennessean this year, people started going ape over the axe.
