As my perfect guitar social experiment comes to an end, I thought it would be wise to share several virtual guitar building websites I have come across. Why? Well for a couple of handy reasons. Firstly, I doubt it will be easy to simply locate the perfect guitar in an existing guitar catalogue. Secondly—and more importantly—it’s a blog post I’ve been meaning to write for months now. I’ve been putting it off for so long now I’d started procrastinating on my procrastination. But no more! today I list the websites that many a guitar lover will lose countless hours on. I make no apologies.
I’ve been bitten by the blogging bug lately and this has caused me to investigate all-things guitar once again. I’m very OK with that. Who doesn’t love spending hours surfing the Interwebs looking at guitars? I’m sure that doesn’t appeal to some folks—I like to call those people boring. What is hopefully not boring though is this list of the five signature guitars I wish I owned.
Now to watch the next lotto draw and hope for the best. Or dream. I’m happy to continue dreaming. … Five signature guitars I wish I owned

Those lists—have-nots and wants—are massive. There are so many options to consider when looking at different guitars. Wood type, body shape, pickup type/configuration, fretboard material, bridge type and a whole lot more. What I’ve been looking into lately though—purely for my own entertainment—is the number of strings on an electric guitar. That is currently the one thing all of my guitars have in common. They’re all six string guitars (until a string breaks). So I’ve been looking into seven string guitars.
There are so many to choose from and many of them are damn affordable. Care to see which models I like the most? Yes? Well read on. Or just look at the picture at the end of this article. Either way … … 7 string guitars—what would you choose?
I love my Schecter Omen 6. There are many reasons for that. The most important reason is that this is the guitar my wife convinced me to buy (in a way that I’ll explain soon). Up until I purchased this guitar I had always researched my next guitar online in great detail. Not this time though. This time I knew I wanted another guitar, I just didn’t know what it was that I wanted. So I went to a local guitar store with the intention of researching what else was out there. That day I not only decided, I purchased. … My Schecter Omen 6 story

Twice now I’ve received a little sneak peak in my email that has implied something awesome is coming from the people at Schecter. I have to say the imagery that comes with each email has made me say “Dear God! That looks to be awesome!” The imagery looks like this the picture you can see below.
