What iconic guitar just doesn't do it for you?

For me personally, it is Rickenbacker. I love the way they look, but every time I have played one I just despise it. They just feel wrong in my hands.

Every one I have ever tried.

Yes..I guess Rickenbacker, Except for Bass. I love the look but the feel and sound just doesn't mesh with me...

Firebirds.
I like them almost enough to put up with the ergonomics but why bother when other things fit so much better?
And Steinbergers. A 2 inch string spread at the bridge + a narrow nut, too? Why did you do it like that?

YES! - Except I LOVE the look of the "mean/ugly" 4001/3 Basses and HATE the look of their guitars, which look like a fretted flounder to me.

YES! The LP is along the same lines for me. The cost and ergos put me off too much today.


HOWEVER, my personal off-putter the Telecaster. I respect their versatility, but I find them very ugly guitars, and their versatility does little for me as I am a strict hard rock/metal fan who can do without the variety.

Strats. They just bore me. They are so common they're almost generic. I've owned a few, & nice ones, but they never get used, so I've given up on them. I only like the bridge/middle tone & even then seldom. I'll leave them to those who love them.

All of 'em it seems. I need a 1.75" at the nut neck, and the only way to get one is custom. I can't go in and by any factory guitar off the rack.
