Smoothest playing guitars ever made. Thin necks, super low action. Perfection.
I have a 67 Celebrity. Super low action, thin narrow neck. Great for small hands. You can effortlessly barre chord and play rhythm all night with almost no pressure.
Mosrites were hand crafted, fast action, electric guitars with driving sound made famous by the Ventures. Their low speed, zero frets, made playing a breeze. Their finishes appeared miles deep and are now prized by collectors.

Carvin is an American Company. They are great sounding and built as well as Gibson or Fender. The sound in many cases is better and they are very versatile in tone. I have an acoustic electric thinline with a cherryburst finish over a spalted wood body. It is one of the most stunning looking and best sounding guitars I have ever played. The price is very reasonable too.
awsm guitars nice performace good finishing and matirial use to make it
Gibson and Fender have been ripping the public off for years, they're not even close to being worth what they charge especially Fender with such a mass produced bolt on neck and lame finishes design. Carvin is a superior guitar in every way and what people fail to mention is that you can choose what wood and finish you would like as well as bolt on neck, set neck or neck through designs and their pick up's are impeccable. A truly great guitar co. With excellent customer relations and real musicians will all show respect for Carvin when mentioned if not already owning one.More comments about Carvin

You should really vote for Kramer!
It's a great guitar-brand, Eddie Van Halen played a Kramer! This guitar should be in the top 5 of best guitar brands! COME ON ROCKERS! VOTE FOR KRAMER!
I love Kramer guitars but they are now part of gibson corporation... so it's not kramer:D.
Kramer set the bar before Gibson. I have both and my Kramer seems to be a better quality and fit than my Fender.More comments about Kramer
Saint Guitar Company, is a custom guitar manufacturer in central california. Saint Guitar Company makes some of the best guitars ever!
Just check one out and play it... You're going to have a very hard time finding a better guitar.
I've been playing guitar for a while now and out of all of these, Eastwood is probly my favorite. I'd highly recommend one. I own the airline map and it's fantastic, great tone and sound and easy to play. Great guitars.
2P DXL CUSTOM airline. They bleed rawness and feeling.

Lakewood guitar is the best!
Have you seen them... You could even design your own in almost every way... Great sound but you would expect that when you could be spending £5000 on one but I'd say that's worth it for the acoustic of your dreams... Check out the site
Sungha Jung's guitar...
vEry niCE souNDD..!
I WANT ONE... LAKEWOOD GUITAR
They look great, sound great, feel great and they are a fraction the price of a gibson Linkin Park. Personally some gibsons can't compete and rely on their name. I prefer the Tokai.
wtf! gibson number 1 everybody knows that tokai makes waaaaay better guitars then gibson, the new gibson's are a piece of crap you just pay them because they are gibson but in the other case gibson has good old guitars like ones that he made in 1959, but today I think that tokai makes much beter guitars then gibson and aria my friend has an aria and it sounds even better than a gibson sg that my other friend has and when I started testing the aria against my japanese les paul the les paul won!
japanese guitars they are amazing
Good price, sounds good too. Reliable. Not the best, but you get what you pay for.More comments about Tokai
I sold my Gibson standard sg because it was collecting dust after I bought my first Spear. I now own 4 Spear guitars.
Amazing Guitars at Amazing Prices! My les-paul style Spear outplays any epiphone clone, hands down. Good humbucker pickups right from the factory, good maple top, and a nice heavy solid body. The set-neck is a plus as well!
I love spear guitars
they're like... the best
I own 6 alvarezez and each one sounds better than the next
I own 15 Guitars, including Gibson, Martin, and Fender. My Alvarez Yari is by far the better overall guitar than all the rest. Playabiity, sound, looks and overall quality of workmanship, and the lifetime warranty.
Alvarez makes pretty high-quality stuff for there price. They should at least be on the first page here.
I've been playing guitar for over 22 years and my DBZs are honestly the best guitars I've ever had. I currently own a Bolero, Imperial, and Barchetta. For once, I actually don't have the desire to trade them which is a big deal for me as I'm very selective and picky.
^^good sound really apreciate it keep up the good work
A really high quality guitar brand from England I believe they started manufacturing guitars in 2008. Only good reviews
Line 6 is my best brand because guitar produce great sounds and affordable has a great design.. Comfortable to use.. Strings are very original.. Made up of
Martinez acoustic guitar is best sound, best price and best model.
I have one $180 I got it new
Steinberger guitars are the most innovative instruments I've every played. no head stock, a transposing tremolo and a graphite neck for lots of SUSTAAIN!
Amazing guitars, I found them better than Gibson.. Probably one of the most underrated guitars of the last ten years
I own a Framus Tennessee the best, mellow or hard its up to you. Quality! Quality! Beautiful fast neck, superb hollow body, great humbuckers and tremm bar. Very good value for money.
Very unknown in the scene. But this is one of the most innovative guitarcompanies in my eyes. I own a Horus and I have to say I love this guitar never would change to another. I don't know all companies here, but if you need a custome guitar with an amazing sound and a very good qualtity this company is for sure not the wrong choice.
Come on. Seriously they are the nicest playing and sounding electrics made. Ashamed something of this superior quality is this far down
Danie high quality Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar gives you great quality for a respectable price. Great tone from a solid AA Sitka spruce top is given projection and bright highs by the mahogany back and sides. Indian rosewood fretboard on a mahogany neck plus laser-etched Engraved Rosette offer a touch of luxury. Chrome plated gold die-cast machine heads for easy and stable tuning.
-dreadnought body size.
-AA Sitka Spruce top.
-Mahogany back and side.
-Indian Rosewood 14-fret.
-Bridge Indian rosewood.
-solid chrome gold cast tuning head.
Amazing prize for guitar and prize.
love it so much
I have a Jay Turser Jt-50 and it sounds pretty good great guitar for its price range.
I own a floyd rose and it is without a doubt one of the best. The speed loaders are amazingly easy to use and the pickups are great too but be careful not to over do it because the parts ain't cheap.
I own a J&D electric guitar and it is awesome. Not even Ibanez or Leas Paul impresses me as much as this one do.
I'm probably a noob to say this, but my JD150 bass sounds sweet. Just not a very good sound when the action is low.
