Well, after discussing what constitutes a 'good' guitar with a friend after school today, he actually got me thinking about "What really DOES make a guitar or bass a GOOD guitar or bass?" And considering he doesn't play either, but is eager to learn guitar, I figured he'd be genuinely interested in what DOES make a good guitar. That is, as opposed to most of my other friends who just ask "Why do you have so many guitars?" or "Why do you want/need another guitar?" and honestly couldn't care less... I told him that every little thing counts; craftsmanship, wood used, electronics, active/passive, pickups etc. all add up to a 'good' or 'bad' guitar, but 'good' and 'bad' still end up being a matter of personal preferance. So...how would/do you answer people if/when they ask "Is this guitar good?"
