Guitar

What is the best guitar for your session? I still use a Taylor because they really sound good and crisp on recording. It's kind of pricey but definitely worth it.

I like to mix it up, can't rely on just one guitar. My collection keeps growing and growing and I use something different for most sessions.

Man I wish I could play the guitar. I'd play bass if I had the time

Well it will depend on the kind of music that you will record. I mean if you think that you need a guitar that would sound dark for a melancholic song then you have to go with Epiphone. That's just my opinion because that's what I'm using. I also have a yamaha acoustic guitar and it sounds great especially on songs that would need a capo. It has this crisp that I really like especially when playing Goo Goo Dolls songs though Taylor is also great on Goo songs.

Anything in tune works for me. I just love to play and learn new techniques. I'm still learning, but I'm starting to get decent. Guitar is really one of the only instruments that gives you complete control over the sound.

The word "best" for most things is subjective, especially for musical instruments. It's all situational and will depend on the project or track.

I agree with the last post. I don't think you could easily use one guitar for every job.

No doubt, its good to switch it up every now and then. Using the same guitar would be like using the same synth in every song...not suggested  ::)

Exactly! I never thought of it like that, that would definitely get boring no matter how you processed it.

Usually, when it comes to recording, I use an Ovation 12 string acoustic, an Ibanez acoustic and either my Schecter or my BC Rich Warlock as my electrics.  Ovations have a nice deep sound, especially when plugged in to an amp and mic'ed at the same time.

I agree. It is situational. Every type of guitar sounds the best in different situations.

Every guitar is different, even down to the pick ups and the warmth or depth of the sound. There are some things in which you can't change digitally.

I don't really care what guitar I am using personally. Jack White is known to use very low quality guitars, and this brings something unique to the table. If you want ultra quality crisp clean acoustic, a Taylor would get the job done. I am more a fan of using anything I can get my hands on, and seeing what I can do with it.

I've got an old Yamaha in my closet, and that does the job for me. I think the sound is fine, and I don't do any serious playing, it's all just for fun. That being said, I don't really know many guitar brands or specifics you'd want to go to for whatever sound.

You know, I've played Fender Stratocasters and Gibson Les Pauls that were a bag of rubbish and were awful guitars yet I've also played on some beautiful ones too. I've also played on some cheap knockout practice guitars, like starter kits and things that weren't even a brand name, which turned out to be better to play than some of the top makes and models. I do believe that any guitar can be made to sound good but as to which types of guitar you prefer, I guess it depends on what types of sound you want to achieve.
