    I'm still not clear about pointy(er) superstrats i.e. guitars that are generally Strat-shaped but with a pointy headstock and pointier horns (which is basically all I have).

    Personally I think there should be a different thread for those because of the sheer amount of competition from certain individuals here but it'd be funny that when the time came they would be considered too pointy

    A pointy headstock DOES NOT make it a pointy. Must be body points. You are referring to superstrats. There will be a superstrat category.

    That was one guitar that I would not have sold had finances allowed me so. Had bills to pay and GAS to feed. On the positive side I sold it for nearly double what I paid for it. Yet at the same time I feel like I abandoned a newborn infant. I suck.

    Isn't that the worst? I let a couple of monsters go to prove to the EX wife that I could be fiscally responsible. A fat lot of good that did!

    anything you can't do on a Les Paul is because you haven't practiced enough or you don't rock hard enough.

    I feel I should add a disclaimer to the previous statement (before I get flamed) that I, in no way, agree with it

    Some seriously awesome guitars in this thread, but also some very very ugly ones. Some people don't seem to get what "pointy" means.

    My vote is to the Punshier Explorer because it looks nice and legal paper work from marvel.

    How much did that end up costing?

    I think he means the Parker and that Washburn that only has a pointy headstock.

    "Pointy" refers to Walocks and Warriors and King Vs and Rhoadses and Explorers and Flying Vs and those types. A pointy headstock does not constitute a "pointy guitar".
