    I write on guitar, but that's about it. This may belong in "Misc".

    Misc. would probably be the best place for this.

    I noodle on guitar, have an Ibanez Artwood acoustic that I do a lot of writing on. I feel a bit more at home on a Strat or Tele though.

    I also play a little bit of guitar. I don't consider myself a guitar player in any way though!!

    I play baritone guitar in a second band. We gig quite a bit, but I'm definitely better and more comfortable on bass. It's just that when we formed the band we couldn't find a guitarist who would shut up and do what they were told, so I switched.

    Yup, I do most of my writing on guitar. I have an old Fender Duo-Sonic reissue that's been modded almost beyond recognition. I really want a pair of Rickenbacker 360's, a 6-string and a 12-string. I love the 360 models, every one I've played has practically played itself. A Tele would be great too... I love me some Tele.

    I play a little guitar, but I'm pretty terrible at it. would love to own a telecaster and some sort of fender twin, though.

    I used to. I still know my chords, but my picking technique has become very sloppy.
     
  12. I still play. After I quenched my bass Gass. I got guitar Gass and bought a new amp (Fender Hot Rod DeVille) and a new guitar (Brian Moore)

    When I play guitar I play mostly classical guitar. I love the feel and tone.
     
  14. I play guitar better than bass, but thats not really hard, i only have an Epiphone G-310 (Black entry level SG), who needs another guitarist in the world tho

    I am a guitar player that switched to bass out of necessity. But i spend equal time playing both instruments equally. I am much better at bass but I cant get the guitar player out of me no matter how hard I try.
     
  16. I am an ex guitarist...glad I'm an ex

    I got 6 guitars (3 cheap, 2 moderate and 1 genuine "lennon" Rickenbacker - play through a Fender hotrod delux 40-watter) and 5 basses (only one cheap secondhand squier I bought of a guy at work for 60 quid - the rest are MIMs and MIJs - play through a trace 300-watter, but I'm saving for that yummy Kustom head...it just doesn't quite look professional enough if the bass player uses a combo...ya know what I mean...? - well...if you ask me I gotta at least LOOK LIKE I'm trying to compete with my guitarists marshall stack haven't I?)

    I am working toward a vintage mustang and a fretless P too...I'll be set for anything realistically then (I won't go onto my GAS list - I've had all the bits for the mustang and fretless hanging around at home for months and months so they're my gas at the minute...)

    I play guitar and I love it. Mostly acoustic. I'm working on my fingerpicking. Bass still feels more natural to me. I have a Heritage 150 (les paul) that should be here tomorrow. :hyper: I bought it on Talkbass.
     
  19. I play guitar. Mostly because i am in college and I dont have a pracicte amp/no room for my rig in the dorm. Also, I like the guitar for writing purposes.

    I always say "I play bass. But I play AT everything else."

    I have a few guitars. I have a customized MIJ '89 or so strat that matches my customized MIJ '89 or so fretless Jazz. I have a MIK Hamer archtop that I have modified till it's a Les Paul slayer. Somewhere around here I have a 6-string cutaway dreadnaught that I essentially quit playing the day I got my Taylor 355ce 12-string. There have been several months where I spent more time playing that 12-string than anything else.

    I also do some writing on keyboards, but I suck. Mostly I'm a songwriter. And mostly I use my 12-string to write. Then with the band I play bass.

    Go figure.
