One thing you dislike about a guitar

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I don't want to use the word 'hate' but I guess everyone has something that you can't stand seeing on an electric guitar. Mine is quilted tops. I really don't like em. The more highly figured, more I move away from it. For me, quilted top is simply ugly, tasteless and unoriginal. Maybe that's one of the reasons why I like Hamers.

What is yours? You don't need to give a reason, just tell me what makes you stay away from a guitar?

I can't do ultra thin necks.  Not a fan of gold hardware, either.

Ditto on thin necks. The only gold hardware I ever liked was on a Ruby Red Newport Pro Custom.

Attach one of those Fleshlight contraptions to it. Problem solved. 😆

Since the op is asking what we hate to see then for me it's a heavy relic, extra points for the finish over finish jobs.

I always rib a buddy of mine telling him to bring me his Tom Murphy, I have a heavy chain and will finish the job for Mr. Murphy.

Some headstocks turn me off... to the point of not being able to ever consider owning the guitar. The pointy PRS, Heritage, the 4/2 Gretsch Corvette, D’Angelico, etc.

Being over 50 & having arthritis, I’m not into heavy guitars (I try to keep new ones coming in under 9 lbs).

Chalk me up as another one who doesn't like gold hardware.  Also, anything Floyd like is a deal killer for me.

I know, I hate this thing.  How the hell did it wind up at my house?

I can’t believe no one has said ‘The Heritage’ yet.

Honest wear and patina is cool, but I don’t like to see purposely relic’d guitars.

Definitely with you guys on relics... I've got a few with some serious wear, but it's all honest. 

I've got quite a few things that I won't say I "hate"... they're fine for other people, just not my cup-o-tea.

Floyd Rose trems... I know a lot of guys love them, but to me it's a Rube Goldberg solution to problems that can be solved in other ways.

Red, wine red, or really red bursts...

A lot of things are certain combos... I don't like gold hardware on a lot of things, but it goes great with Korina and I wouldn't kick a white LP custom out of bed for gold hardware either. I don't like a flat (over 10") radius fretboard on a Fender-style guitar, but I'm fine with it on other things.

I could go on, but the doctor has shown up with my meds...
