    Default Guitar Opinion Question

    Hey.

    This will be a bit long, but bare with me.

    Here is what I currently own.

    USA Peavey Wolfgang STD
    Mid-90's Mex Richie Sambora Strat
    72 re-issue Mex Fender Thinline Special Run (color)
    Squier Classic Vibe 50's Tele.

    Now...I think I would like a Peavey HP Special USA. My question is filled with options, and is this. If I were to sell any of the above one or combo of the above guitars I own for an HP Special, what would you pick from these suggestions...?

    a - Wolfgang
    b - Strat & Thinline
    c - Strat and CV Tele
    d - your thoughts.....?

    Also...what would you recommend...a Flat Top or Carved Top HP Special?

    One noticeable difference between Judas Priest and Metallica...
    ...Judas Priest only has one gay guy in the band.

    If it was me id go with C.

    Sell the strat and squire tele.

    Do you record and gig?
    It's good to have different guitars around for recording & isnt the HP the same as a wolfgang?

    Don't sell anything and get what you want. Life is to short...

    Basically yes . except the trem can be set to float or you can lock it to only dive, and it has tapped coils. A really nice looking and sounding ax though.

    +1, unless you have a guitar you dont like, never touch, etc (in which case, sell that guitar) Otherwise save up, or finance, get what you want, then sell whichever guitar you like the least

    I'm guessing he might be selling something to help pay for the guitar he wants.

    Assuming you have to sell something, sell the one you play the least and don't see yourself playing much of in the future.

    I agree 100%!

    I still own my first electric guitar I got when I was 12. Haven't played it for years and it's a piece of junk lol. But I keep it for sentimental reasons. There are some that I did sell because I was stupid (needed money) and wished I never did sell. In the past year I bought a EBMM evh and a 5150 head. I listen to my wife for a little while, but it's worth it.

    So.. if you have a guitar that you don't play because of non-sentimental reasons... sell it.

    Regardless of what you decide, you should forget about the HP Special, and get an EBMM Axis.
