Members PumpkinDog Posted March 17, 2010 Members Share Posted March 17, 2010 hey guys... bassist here. I play some acoustic and electric where needed. I've got an electric guitar that I use for my home recording but live it's a horrid pain to get/stay in tune so I'm looking to get a new one. My current is a peavey straight from the 80s that I bought used in 1996 for $175. Aside from the tuning, it's actually got a fairly decent sound: gets an almost acoustic sound using the neck pups and a nice chunky sound with the double or single bridge pup. I'm not really looking to get a supreme guitar since it's not my primary trade. probably about $3-500 new or used. My priorities: 1) stays in tune 2) sounds good 3) feels good 4) cost 5) looks good. from CL: 2002 american made fender strat ($500). strats are good, right? how is this for staying in tune, though? Is a whammy bar a sign that tuning problems will be had? (peavey has whammy bar... if I touch the bridge while playing bye-bye in tune) In general: given my 5 priorities what guitar should I be looking for? What would you suggest I try out?
