The worst guitar I've ever played? My school has a red strat copy (can't remember the brand) and it's absolutely horrendous. All of the frets are uneven (not a single pair in agreement with each other), five or six solid dead frets that CANNOT be fixed, a bridge that feels like it's made out of solid sludge and the tuning stability of a feeble badger.
Combine that with it's mile-thick neck and horrendous fingerboard, and the horribly harsh pickups, it really is an absolute abomination.

Oh let me tell you, it came with string gauges too low to handle drop Gb. What's up with that?

I havent played many guitars in my lifetime (only a teenager), however ive got two to fight it out for the title.
Firstly, my little brother recieved a guitar from Aldi a couple of months ago and it is the most pointless excuse for a guitar i have ever played. The action was terrible, the pickups were crap and the trem was shit to begin with, it kept going out of tune every time you used it, but then the whammy bar wouldn't go into the trem unit and that was that. I eventually tossed that guitar into a brick wall.
Then my friend Cody let me borrow his Squier vintage strat. It wasn't as shit as the Aldis one, but this one died in my arms after about a week of fierce playing. Two of the tuning pegs broke off.
At the moment ive got a Epi sg-310 and even though its a bolt on sg, it makes a mad sound through a fender amp.

Hm, I used to own an RG550EX and it was well built, Lo Pro and played pretty well. However, I never got round to changing the pickups, and I hated the rosewood fretboard. It was usually dry and never felt that nice to me. I did apply the works when restringing, oiling up, adjusting pickup heights but I never enjoyed playing it much.

Sold that, but I kind of regret not trying to block the trem so I could play with different tunings and string gauges.

Also, when I was younger, I had an Epiphone Les Paul custom. I used to love it but as I started to listen to shred music, I felt that the LP single cutaway was holding me back (excuses ) and sold it.

OMG the acoustics at my school are the biggest pieces of shit ever. the music teacher doesn't know ANYTHING about guitars and he hates guitar players and all of the guitars have holes in them and they are just patched up with electrical tape! this post has inspired me to start an anti my music teacher thread. keep an eye out.

I had this 'Gothic' Gibson SG. Satin black, no inlays. Was intended to be a project axe. Was gonna put in cool inlays, do a nice finish, etc. But 2 major things:

The neck was shit. It was incredibly thick, which is meh. But the fretwork was atrocious. Some of the frets were so snaggletoothy that you could cut your finger on them. I guess they aren't used to having no binding to cover up the sloppy workmanship.

Secondly, IT ....ING STANK. I don't know what it was, but the think smelled stale and mouldy. No amount of febreze, baking soda, air, ozone, etc could remove the smell from the case or guitar.

It sounded ok. It had a really smooth quality to it. Ended up trading for an outdated dSLR camera which saw way more use.

Gibson 3 pickup faded Flying V. Had sand paper and machining marks on the wood where apparently the wood shop kids forgot to put it through final sanding. Not to mention the horrid fretwork or the electronics that didnt work straight out of the box.

Esp Std s7. - 1. The tuner for the 7'th string could not fit a string bigger than a 56.
2. The electronics we're soldered by a donkey. It died within a month.


Ltd fx-400 - 1. Piss poor soldering again. 2. the fretboard we're not made correctly. i could not intonate it.


Ibanez RGA121 violin flat. - A super nice guitar, if you use light strings. sadly the bridge could not take thicker strings than 54's.

Man I feel that. It definitely wasn't the worst I've ever played but It's the worst I've blindly bought(stupid local guitar stores not having it). It had a horrendous fret job. Playing it just pissed me off which was a HUGE disappointment. Needless to say it was sent back 2 days later.

I want to see pictures of some really messed up guitars with the frets popping out or something funny on those lines. I have seen some really disgusting guitars being sold at a pawn shop with rusty green crap all over the frets and inlays and missing a truss rod plate. Damn pawn shops

I didn't play it, but I saw at a pawnshop one time was A BC Rich Bronze Series Warlock, with the horns on the top cut off of the head stock. They were selling it for $60 over the cost of a new one. I questioned hard what kind of ....ing retard bought it, and the same retard for trying to sell it for so much.

My Ibanez S5470 Prestige looked great, felt great, and sounded decent, but dear jesus christ it would not stay in tune at all.

If you palm muted the e-sting or picked it firmly, the guitar would drop a whole step gradually over like 5 seconds. It was like someone was twisting the tuning keys.
