(Sorry if something like this has been posted before, I went back about 8 pages and didnt see anything so I hope this is safe)

So I've been using my brothers electric guitar for a while but I kinda wanna get my own as not to wear his out (he never uses it anyway but still, I don't wanna break it and end up buying him a new one :P). It's a real nice cheapy practice guitar (a kramer focus or something like that) but instead of buying a new one of those, I would kind of just like to upgrade while I'm at it :D

First, what kind of guitars do Skillet use? I would kind of like something in that direction or similar or whatever if possible :D

Any other models you'd recommend that arent rediculously expensive but are still pretty good yet not a cheapy practice one?

Im still pretty new when it comes to guitars so I don't really know much about them. I've only been playing this one type and I dont know anyone else who plays guitar or knows anthing about them (had to teach myself -_-) so I was hoping someone here could help out :D

skillet uses GMP guitars...and those guitars are really really really expensive. the perfect guitar for you is a fender standard stratocaster mexican-made. just the standard is probably around $350. that is probably one of the nicest guitars out there for any kind of style guitar you play...and it's amazingly priced too. that guitar was my next step up from a cheap beginner hamer guitar. i got this one (http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Guitar/Electric?sku=511275)

That was me. ;D

Yeah, I am thinking about getting a new guitar--I practice on a crummy 7-year-old's, Wal-mart, generic brand piece of crap. It cost at most $50. It's seriously too small for my hands. So... yeah. I was thinking about a Jackson Kelly model or a Fender Standard Strat. Two completely different pieces, but... :afro:

I'm also looking into a decent distortion pedal... preferably one that would make that crunchy metal sound that we all love so much. 8)

the distortion pedal i own is a digitechgrunge distortion (http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Guitar/Effects?sku=150834) . that pedal has just the right amount of crunch in it and it sounds really awesome.

also, check out some of the Epiphones in musiciansfriend.com there are some really good prices on their. and check out the pawn shop around where you live. i bought a Kona that looks exactly like a Les Paul and i got it for $180. it plays beautifully and looks awesome. but check out the pawn shops and play on some of those guitars.

Beginners Guide To Buying A Guitar

What sound Are you looking for
For a Good Rock Tone: Go with guitar with a dual coild or humbucking pick up.You want the skillet sound buy a Schecter. starting priceof $299 to get their real sound upgrade to a Seymour Duncan 59 for about $80. Fender Telecasters get a good rock sound with a beefy amp or good distortion pedal. Also look at the Yamaha line quality gear.

my top five pedals:
Fullton Full Drive: $250
Jekyll Hyde O/D: $139
Boss Dual Overdrive: They dont make it anymore you can buy it used for like $35-50.
Marshall Jackhammer Overdrive: $90
Hao Rust Driver: $127

I know the pedals seem expensive but by the time you go through 3 cheap ones you could have bought something better.

edit: epiphones fall apart. I went through 2 and that was just playing them for worship at church. Y

I was using that same guitar 2 weeks ago. I broke a string at church so I borrowed that from the other guitarist. I wasn't impressed with it and I was running it through a nice marshall and some sweet boutique pedals. It sounded uber muddy through my pod the next day. The pick ups are way blunt sounding. Throw in a Gibson 500t or Seymour Duncan JB it can warm it up alot. Epeiphones just fall apart to quick. I'm getting a pink Daisy Rock tonight.

That's not an Epiphone, it's an ESP. I was looking at getting a Les Paul Menace (http://www.gibson.com/Products/GibsonElectric/Gibson%20Electric%20Guitars/LesPaul/Les%20Paul%20Menace/), but I coulnd't afford one.

I've played Fenders.....eh......they just don't have the right punch and tone for me. I personally wouldn't use a fender to play Skillet unless it was modified. I know the TFK guitarist uses a Fender Strat. but his is highly modified with EMGs to get his Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier ta do what he wants. I have a Triple Rectifer and I've played a mexican Fender Strat. and a 40th anniversary american strat. and a 62' Gibson SG (all though we're not talking about SG's but whatever) And the Strats just didn't perform the way I like no matter the equalization. But again that just me I'm not saying they are not good guitars cause they are I just don't feel they fit Skillet's sound very well. I prefer ESP or LTD....I have an LTD H-1000 and my friend (who plays in my band) has an Schecter C1 Elite and he likes the feel of the H-1000 WAY over the Schecter, and uses my guitar for gigs (I play Bass, a Traben Phoenix 5-string, like John ;D) because it is like half to weight and movement along the fret board is so much more smooth. So I would recommend A decent LTD like a 400 or 1000 series (which you can find on ebay within the price range you like, and pick the body style you prefer) and out of my reseach of pickup's I like Dimarzio (I use a Drop Sonic in the neck and an X2N F spaced in the Bridge). They have a great punch, great for playing Skillet. I donno if this is more info than you wanted but it's just my recommendation. Believe me I really really like strats. just not for Skillet.

K.O.

DustinRocks
03-27-2006, 03:14 PM
you'd like my strat for Skillet. IT has a Seymour Duncan JB and and the pots have been modded heavy. I use it for playing hardcore and it will burn your face off if you aint careful. The only deal I ahve with ESP/LTD is they aren't conistent I went through like 30 differnat oens to find one that played well. The Schecters may have baseball back necks but they are consitent play good I change pick ups all the time and recomend a duncan 59 or a JB. IBANEZ 520 with dimarzio evolution pick ups thats the the stuff.

panheadko
03-27-2006, 03:44 PM
^That's sounds like a dang cool strat........I donno I just never found a schecter that I personally liked, both of the guitarists in my band have 'em but neither care for 'em, One is replacing his with a Fernandes Vertigo and the other plays my H-1000. I've just had alot experience with both ESP guitars and basses and I haven't purchased one that has let me down. Of course everyone has different tastes, different hands/fingers so it varies, it feels different to everyone......The only thing I don't care about Ibanez is that they are totally manufactured on a mechanical assembly line, which is consistent, but I feel that a guitar that has a human guiding it's development along the way to have better quality. The Evo's are good pickup, I like them alot.

skilletfreak101
03-27-2006, 03:51 PM
shechter guitars are probably the hottest looking guitars ever...but i don't like them that much anymore because the necks (well at least the neck on the C-1 classic) bend too easily. if you pull on the neck just a little bit the strings go out of tune...it's crazy.

DustinRocks
03-27-2006, 06:25 PM
I understand what you say about the Ibanez but my lead Guitar mods out allof his he has 2 520s and a 520 I believe, and they are amazing axes. me and Sam (lead guy) mod all of out stuff so heavy that you can't really judge by brand. But like you said of course everyone has different tastes, different hands/fingers so it varies, it feels different

You should be pulling on the neck of a guitar. Are reffering to bending the the strings. My bands schecters never have tuning issues we play 3 times a week tour and bend the mess out of our strings.

actually dude you are very wrong about me. i've played everything out there and i am a very serious musician. when i say fender is the best im not just some punk kid who's biased. i know what i'm talking about. and no i've never ever owned a squire. the guitar i mainly use right now is a Fender 50th Anniversary American Strat...that's right american is just a LITTLE bit different than a squire. YEAH RIGHT. actually this guitar is a collectors and they don't even make them any more. the price range was around $1,500. My backup guitar is a Fender Standard Strat. now obviously we all have our opinions and our own tastes, but im just saying..whatever you play...you can never go wrong with fender.

Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page used a Gibson Les Paul. That means that the best use that guitar, so shouldn't you?

Jimmy Page > Stevie Ray Vaughn IMO.

Think about it, Jimmy Page was at the head of about the best band ever, how many good songs did Vaughn write..?

stevie ray vaughan wrote tons of amazing songs. nobody could play guitar like him. if stevie and jimmy were in a soloing contest there's no doubt that vaughan would kill page....too bad stevie ray vaughan is dead :-(.

comapring them stylistically(sp?) is nearly impossible. Jimmy was way differant; a less is more player. SRV was a blues soloist. A good guitarist is not determined by solos. The guitarist from Dragonforce would blow away both of them if it came to solos.

listen to Fury of The Storm my personal fav
and he plays an ibanez.

that's true...but the thing about SRV is that he could solo for 20 minutes and he would never ever do the same thing twice. so the reason why i say he is the best guitarist is that he was really creative
