Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Hi, thread title more or less says it all. I'm in the market to buy a new guitar. After playing an awful Peavey Raptor for 15 years I'm looking to trade up to something a little more upscale (within a flexible budget).
I was first looking at getting a Gibson SG which, at about $1,500, would be the upper limit of what I'm able to spend. But I'm also not a very good guitar player and it's little more than I need - hence I'm drawn to the more straightforward Jr. or the Telecaster, which both also have attractive price tags (about $800 and $600 respectively).
I have played the Jr. at a music store (hadn't originally been considering a Fender until recently) and liked the sound, action, weight, etc. (but, like you might guess, anything would impress me considering what I'm playing now), so what I'm really looking for are general comments on quality/reputation, what I can do with either guitar (what I play is fairly diverse: punk, rock, alternative, indie, etc.) any limitations, etc.
Also, looking at getting an acoustic too, but unlike an electric have no idea where to start. Something decent that is priced around $500 or under would be good - getting both guitars for under $1,200 or so is somewhere to aim.
