    Watch this video !



    I am not particularly any fan of his music. But damn, if this is all true, it truly shows most of your tone is in your fingers. That's just a cool reminded when these days we have access to so much quality for both low and high budgets. Anything would sound good if you are a good musician, and it reminds me I should stop GASing online and just pick up my old guitars including my beginner one !

    Hahah first thing I thought too.

    I've heard about plenty of famous guitarists that they used shit gear on records that sound great, so this isn't totally surprising but is neat.

    Also slightly off-topic but I will forever hate Tom Morello for having written SENDERO LUMINOSO on his guitar, which is the name of a left-wing terrorist group that murdered about 40,000 Peruvians, most of them indigenous people. Sweet ideology, bro!

    The guy hasn't aged a day in 20 years! Budget guitars are great fun to play with and you'll find the odd winner. Hetfield's flying v is a cheap replica, he got ripped off by a guy who put the Gibson truss cover on it. Didn't stop him using it on RTL, still using it today even. Kind of annoying how Gibson must have sold a ton of Vs from Hetfield playing it though..

    The older I get the more I fucking hate Rage Against The Machine's politics. It was cool when I was a 16 year old fucktard who didn't know anything about the world. As a 30 year old fucktard who doesn't know anything about the world? Not so much! :)

    I agree with this, RATM seemed much cooler when I was an angsty teen. But at least bands like RATM can get kids to start thinking about politics, which is something. Overall I feel like they still had a positive impact on my life even if now I think Morello is kind of whacky.

    Plus dem riffs.

    I have a Gould Strat that i bought for about 150$ when i worked at the local music store, and its insanely sustain and sounds overall great(Although the quality of the fretwork and hardware isn't exactly what i would call top quality.).
    EVH's Frankenstrat is a shit build made of scrap parts(The body has a huge knot in it.), but it still seems to sound pretty damn good. ;)

    Had to be done :lol:
    I agree with OP. Having an inspiring instrument is very important, even if it's less than stellar build or quality, the 'quirks' can even add to it I think - not that nicely put expensive guitars aren't awesome! :D

    My guitars are kind of cheap, but I feel strangely proud about that haha

    One of my guitars was $300 with the case that I bought almost fifteen years ago. It needs some new electronics, and I've been thinking of replacing the neck with one from Warmoth, but I still play & record stuff with it.

    I got a 200 dollar Oscar Schmidt acoustic that plays a thousand times better than my old 599 dollar Martin. Sold the Martin. The OS is fantastic and has perfect intonation.
