    I really like the classified forums here at TB. Can anyone recommend a similar forum for electric guitars with a classified section?

    My recommendation would be the gear page.

    I used to love the Fender Discussion page. Met some great folk there.

    There is talkguitar.com

    at this point it is small but it is there. If its run by the same people of TB I'll glady keep going back. If not I'll probably not return much.

  9. With all due respect, TGP is kinda like TB, but not nearly as polite and respectful of users. I've found a few of the mods to be trolls and much of the behaviors wouldn't be tolerated here.

    So name one that's better.
  11. Better than TGP? None. Better than TB? None. As a bassist, the problem with the guitarist forums is that guitarists, the ones who make up the complaints in the band management forum.

    I'll stick to TB. No desire to ever go back there.

    I think we are on the same wavelength. There is a reason I hang out here. Still, for guitar players (especially PRS lovers), TGP is about as good as it gets.
  13. It would be utopia if it were run like TB, although perhaps a little hard on the wallet. I just felt that the vocal majority was a little passive aggressive and juvenile at times. There were truly some insightful and killer musicians there for sure. It's unfortunate that my negative experiences overshadow them. Guys like my guitarist are pretty cool. Egotistical know-it-alls, can take a hike. I'd never play in a band with them and see no reason to socialize with people like that.

    I must hand it to our mods for keeping things respectful all around.
