    Back when I was in a band I played a friends SG but I never liked the neck heavy weight it had so I got myself a Tokai Love Rock Les Paul and I fell in love. So much in love that I don't play it unless it was band practise or a gig as I didn't want it to degrade due to wear and tear.

    I think overall I have the best feel for a fender stratacaster shape. It's just got that feeling that makes it really accessible to play sitting down and standing up. For my next guitar I'd like to try my hand at a telecaster or maybe a really nice electric-acoustic.

    I'm a big fan of Jazzmasters/Jaguars, teles, Gibson hollowbodies (ES-335) and I tend to play somewhere between shoegaze and blues. Which is a lot of things.

    It's not mine, just to be clear. I'd give my right nut for it, it's Misha Mansoor's from Periphery. If you don't know Periphery, definitely check them out, their songs are one big epic riff and one of their biggest influences is Nobuo Uematsu who composed most of the Final Fantasy stuff. They're all big gamers as well.

    im a huge fan of rock n roll, i can leave metal at the door. Nothing appeals to me like good old fashioned rock. I play a Gibson les paul custom, acoustic wise i have a martin d28. Sometimes people give you a funny look in the club circuit when you rock guitars that are expensive like that but i've been playing for 11 years and i worked my ass off to buy the guitars i wanted so hey! If i want to wreck my les paul gigging in dingy clubs i will

    Been playing guitar for 5 years, and I honestly play anything from rock to prog to metal but lately been on a blues binge. My guitar is a Sterling Musicman JP100D and my amp is an Orange Dark Terror through a 1x12 Mesa Rectifier Cab. Sounds killer!

    I have two. My main is an Ibanez SA120 and my secondary is a Squier Telecaster Deluxe. The amp being used is a Line 6 Spider IV 15 watt with a few pedals such as a Crybaby Wah, Digitech Death Metal and a BOSS TU-3.

    I usually flip between Gibson Les Paul and Paul Reed Smith Custom 24 guitars, I have the great pleasure and honor of owning both.

    I love Firebirds as well.

    I play a lot of rock and some hard rock/metal stuff, but after years of playing those genres I've started playing songs with no guitar in them in the first place, Lady GaGa for example is a really interesting take on trying to make your electric guitar sound like a synth with octave, fuzz and delay pedals, while playing with a very percussive style of playing and doubling the vocal lines.

    Since there are obviously few very if any tabs for songs that don't have guitar in them, I have to figure out the stuff by ear, which is always fun. smiley0.gif

    I play a somewhat wide range of styles, usually post-punk based. I love using the delay pedal I have; you can get some seriously ethereal sounds to come out of that thing.

    I like to play Thrash, and I've only ever played a piece of shit Squier-Strat that I put an EMG into, but since I'm not really a competent player, and I'm not getting better, I don't really upgrade. I've actually downgraded in amplifiers for that reason. I just play for fun, or when I'm bored. It's more of a hobby than anything else even though I wish I were better. There's just the point of no progression when you are completely self-taught and can't read music, and I'm at the point. It's sad to say I've been playing for about 8 or 9 years now.

    However, I have taught 2 people to play and they've gone on to be really fuckin' good players and I'm proud of that! :)

    Edit: I think I painted a really shitty picture of my abilities there, so I wanted to say, its not like I'm complete poo. I mean after 9 years I'm pretty practiced and well versed in my instrument, and I can play well I'm just not getting any better, is probably what I should have said. I'm definitely better than any beginner, and I would probably say I'm a moderate or slightly above average player. And my guitar has served me well for these 9 years, so its not a complete dump.

    I don't only play thrash, I like all kinds of metal, and rock, and I play the blues when I'm in a particular kind of mood.

    Coming from someone who sang (often) before I played the guitar, I guess I play a little bit of everything, mainly things that I like to sing with as well. Music ranges from anything to everything, really. I stick to the acoustic unplugged sound for that reason, though I hope to stretch out of my comfort zone with some jazz and blues. Fairly new to the guitar, barely got my first one a few months ago. A big baby Taylor. I personally like how Fender's Strats sound too.

    I love Ibanez so much, their artcore range would have to be my absolute favourite. My favourite styles to play would be jazz, blues, alternative and hardcore, though if I had the choice of playing older styles like the 60s bands The Velvet Underground or The Doors. :)

    I have to say, for such amazing styles of music, they're so underrated these days.

    I love Frank Sinatra and Bobby Darin, I could and sit and listen to them all day, jamming along with my guitar or bass. :) It sucks because a lot of my friends don't listen to older music, but it's good that there is always someone online that appreciates that kind of music. :)

    Playing guitar is half my life! The other half Xbox of course. My main guitar is my s101 les Paul. It's damn near a Gibson but minor differences. It has a real deep sound too. Also have a jbp acoustic, an Ibanez, and a fender. I've been playing for 3 years. I'm alright I guess. Getting better everyday! I play anything from punk to metal. Currently in a band with no singer :/ it's hard to find one!

    Absolutely love guitar. Used to play A LOT of Rush but now I'm working on learning some Joe Satriani. I play a Paul Reed Smith Custom 24 SE on a Vox Tonelab LE multi-effects pedal through an Ibanez bass amp (borrowing from a friend).

    I play blues and classic rock and a bit of metal or whatever I'm in the mood for.
    I use a les paul but I really want to get a nice strat and a new gibson someday.

    I guess I've changed lately, and been really into learning finger style, such a challenging but beautiful style.
