Guitars that AREN'T Fender or Gibson

Posted by DJ on Fri, 01/12/01 - 14:53:08.

I'm looking to add a guitar to my small playing collecton which is: 61 Fender Strat: 76' Gibson 335 :
80's Gibson V : 60's National lap steel. My question is what would the good folks here at guitarsite recommend ? I play mostly rock, some blues. I'm looking for something that will give me a different sound than what these give me, eg. maybe a 12 string,
or maybe a " jangly " sounding guitar like a Rickenbacker. Or just something eclectic and fun - Mosrite, old Danelectro, Gretsch, Dobro.
Any ideas ?

How about a Les Paul jr.(?)With the double cutaway and
soap-bar pickups.Nice,twangy and mean with overdrive!

Re: Guitars that AREN'T Fender or Gibson.OOPS ! !

Gretch and Ricks are very cool.Tons of personality.

Ive heard danelectro 12 strings are great for the price, they have sound samples at www.danelectro.com, they have a unique sound. I borrowed an Rickenbaker 360 6 string for a while, and although it could sound nice clean it was a bugger to play lead on and sounded too thin and spikey for most occasions.
You could try hybrid guitars that have say coil tapping and even special acoustic sounding pickups - e.g. PRSs, Eggles, etc - or even soundthing with a roland hex pixup (e.g. Godin and Roland Guitars) to blend in synth sounds.

I'd say look at old vintage Guild hollowbody guitars, or Gretcsh. Archtops!!!

Re: Guitars that AREN'T Fender or Gibson

: Buy a Rickenbacker with the toaster top vintge pick-ups. Twang, jangle and sweet overdrive. Don't get a Rick with the "Hi-gain" pu's. They suck.
