OOO... OOO... Wowie... This is all turnin' into a competition!!
I have a limited edition John Mayer Strat (signed by him on the pickguard) and a PRS Santana III (Did I mention it's been DISCONTINUED?)!! I ALSO have a GA-45SCE : Natural with YUI signed on the 5th fret...
NAH!!!... I was just joking... That would be crazily good if I could have all those!!
Okay okay... Don't have to get angry with me... :P
Actually, I used to really want a PRS since it was considered a 'VERY GOOD' guitar. However, it was always so expensive and way out of the price range...
After watching so many artists who don't actually use one, I've found that it's more technique and also love for a guitar which fits you better.
Sure a PRS sounds good... But as for whether it fits me? Hmm... I don't know... I've only ever held one for a few mins and I prb. need more time with it.
My 1st VERY OWN guitar was a Yamaha APX-5A or something... That one has stuck with me through thick and thin for an all out acoustic-electric sound. If there's one thing I don't like about, it's the pick-ups. It sounds like a twangy electric when passed into an amp. I had to use a BOSS Acoustic Simulator (AC-3) before plugging it into an amp so that it sounded more like an ACOUSTIC even though it was one. Thankfully, my performance of "Iris" by the Goo Goo Dolls was alright... XD
2nd guitar was the Gibson Les Paul. Like I said, birthday gift... And I never understood it's true potential till I was more experienced. This one's probably my most favoured guitar and the sound it makes is just awesome. Suits me just as well as any dream PRS I have. The Gibson to me is like nataliejwong's Taylor to her.
3rd is an Ibanez which I HIGHLY REGRET because of it's stupid Floyd Rose Tremelo system. I just hate the darn thing... Broke 3 strings trying to tune it to BDDDDD. Jeezz... And I can't sell it either coz I can't find anyone to sell it too... HIGH HIGH REGRET... Should've gone with my idea for a strat... WHY...
I'm looking forward to a strat sometime sooner or later... Needa feel more like YUI and John Mayer. They make good music with a simple stratocaster and don't need high class, amazing wood guitars like PRS. Props to them!!
