Top Ten Worst Guitar Brands

The Contenders: Page 3XW


Sounds like this person hates all guitar brands to me, why can't he own his own guitar company and come out with his own brand with top of the like guitars. Its no expensive to make the guitars, but it is to sell and when you buy that guitar your buying it with the brand name so that raises the price.

Totally disappointed in the workmanship.. No quality control.. the fret bars raised off the neck are so sharp that they almost cause lacarations in your fingers, they Pickups are the Cheapest you can get and I am very disappointed in the quality control and what product exactly they are trying to put out the door... maybe revamp your product and put out least worth getting a good review over...


I have a Kona Signature Acoustic with beautiful inlays in the wood. I believe the body is mahogany, decent resonant tone, and once I shimmed up the saddle bridge (which technically should have been replaced all together due to notching), sounds better than my Martin in many ways, where it better distributes the low, high, and mid-range tones. The Martin is too bassy sounding, but have ordered new bone bridge saddle, which hope it improves the cheap plastic one it came with...

I just bought a kona dakota and it looks good and sounds great. You do know what they say about opinions yes right that everyone has one. Just saying!

These guitars sound horrible. It was the worst guitar purchase I have ever made.

If someone has a supreme, and you ask them what brand they're using they will answer "uhm its some cheap one you know" because people never wants to admit that they own a supreme.
Supreme is a very cheap guitar though so the prize isn't a robbery.


Love my Mahar strat, best $24 including shipping I ever spent. Nice zebra stripes too.

The Aluminum neck stuff was Tre cool, the 'American Made' stuff was good, the Stryker line was wonderfully craptacular, though I did come across a Stryker that had a prototype Floyd Rose. --The Floyd was worth more than the guitar!

I'm getting an axe shaped guitar and it's a Kramer. Kramer's is acually a custom brand


Best used for beating hippies senseless. Other than that: useless.

I'm getting a Hondo revival 335 from a family member and I heard it plays better than a Gibson 335. Of course the Gibson 335s are still awesome.

My Hondo got its tires stuck in my grandmothers snatch...


These guitars are crap. The feel so light I would honestly not be surprised if they were made from cardboard and completely hollow. The electrics fail after owning it for a month or two. Very cheap and nasty brand

Yeah I had one, it sounded terrible, never stayed in tune and the frets came away at the sides meaning you lacerated your hands playing it - I'll take £800 cash today

I'm sorry, but all you guys don't know what a bad guitar is. This guitar is the worst piece of crap I've ever used, and I'll never use one again. DO NOT GET's fake...I mean, plastic. Yeah. It's pretty awful. And not to mention the horrible sound it makes, and how hard it is to play.


Hello, kiddies. Here comes me, the storyteller of the holy craps. Once upon a time there was here in Brazil a brand called as above - it translates into "Soundly King" but the only soundly thing about it was its crapiness. It wouldn't fall apart, for it wqas made of one single piece of scrap wood and just about everything on it was kept in place with - cheap - glue. It came standard with stripped steel cable wire strings and doorbell coil pickups. As it couldn't get any worse, it featured an inline set of two acoustic guitar bar tuning machines and its frets were made of copperwire clippings. One great day, this Manufacturing Empire of Evil went bankrupt - as expected - and crumbled upon itself as an imploded rotten card castle, and everyone was happy ever after. The end.

541979 Cort Classic.

Beautifully made and very solid. The neck never moves and I'd love to see if anyone could tell the difference between this guitar and a Gibson Les Paul Custom in a blind test. Cort make more electric guitars than anyone else and dry store the timber for two years prior to manufacture. In the end it all comes down to personal preferences surely?


I too have Java guitar seriously its sucks

Schecters are great, I'm just being a dick by putting in on the list.

Lol to the guy who judges the a guitars quality off of how many times it's on sale/how many you see on craigslist

Laugh out loud to the "Shecters are great, I'm just being a dick by putting this on the list." guy.

By far the most quality production guitars available. Each one has been crafted with dedication and love. The first time I played one (a real one not the cheaper ones) I felt my zipper break. The way the face is sculpted is incredible, it reminds me of a quality violin. I have never and will never hear or see a finer example of the perfect guitar.

Best guitar company ever. Wonderful costumer service and every American guitar they make is PERFECT straight out of the factory. Worth every penny. They aren't just pretty.

Overrated as hell!, just like Gibson, fender usa, ESP and any other company that produces cheaper and comparable copies of their own instruments

Pretty Rich Set

Had a Cameo Deluxe telecaster. Maybe it would have helped if I intonated it. Neck was on crooked and the low E string almost ran off the fretboard towards the bottom. Sold it
