Uni work help? ERG magazine project

So for my Journalism degree, I'm designing a magazine, specifically a magazine for extended range guitars. As part of the project, I need to do some research to back up my designs, and seeing as the subject matter is relevant I thought I'd ask you guys for help.

The questions are as follows, tick the corresponding boxes for each one. Also, feel free to leave extra comments regarding what you'd like to see in a magazine for extended range guitars. Just try to keep comments in good English and without swearing.

Cheers in advance!


A - Which of these names do you prefer?
1 - X-Tended
2 - ERG Player
3 - Extended Guitarist

B - What sort of music would you like it to include?
1 - Metal music only
2 - Metal and Jazz
3 - Any music

C - What sort of instruments?
1 - Extended range guitars
2 - Extended range guitars and basses
3 - Any extended range stringed instruments

D - What sort of look for the magazine?
1 - Traditional, classic – Guitarist, Revolver magazine
2 - Modern, stylish – Guitar Player, Zero Tolerance magazine
3 - Modern, gritty – Terrorizer, Metal Hammer magazine

E - What sort of colours?
1 - Aggressive – black, red etc
2 - Neutral – white, gray, light colours
3 - Cool – blues, greens

F - What sort of design for the features?
1 - Simple – white background, black text, a bit of colour and photographs if necessary
2 - More graphics – few plain white pages, simple coloured vector designs
3 - Graphic heavy – lots of graphics and textures relating to individual features.

God dammit. XD I didn't even realise. To be honest, I'm mostly tossing up (DON'T SAY A WORD) between the other two, so I just threw that one in as a third choice for shits and giggles.

Submitted my answers.

Graphic heavy is a must to ensure I keep the high levels of GAS going.

This is a really great idea man, i'd love to see it happen!!! Are baritone guitar players included as well? I myself consider them to also be extended range, though some may not.

I just wasted your time.

This is awesome man, what a cool project. Judging from the poll results, it seems like we're mostly on the same page, which is good because that might make the decisions easier for you.

Quote:
1 - X-Tended
That doesn't sound like the thing you mean on the bright side you can rent ad space to male enhancement pill companies and get some revenue.

I went with "ERG Player", because it sounded the least like it had anything to do with penises.

Quote:
E - What sort of colours?
1 - Aggressive – black, red etc
2 - Neutral – white, gray, light colours
3 - Cool – blues, greens
When I last looked at the poll results, these 3 were all tied, so I guess it's gonna have to be an ugly ass rainbow colored magazine. This combined with the new male enhancement ads is really not looking good for you, man, it's starting to look like a whole other type of magazine.

Quote:
3 - Graphic heavy – lots of graphics and textures relating to individual features.
Because you know we ERG players need our pr0n

EDIT: To be clear, I mean guitar porn. I guess I've ruined yet another magazine.

A - Which of these names do you prefer?
1 - X-Tended
(Despite the fact that it sounds like a male enhancement pill, it's the most unique and stand-outish of the bunch. You want that in a mag)

B - What sort of music would you like it to include?
3 - Any music
(Metal and Jazz are not the only genres that can benefit from ERGs)

C - What sort of instruments?
2 -
