Let's face it; the guitar is cool, whether you are into rock, metal, punk, indie, or country, trying to start a band without a good guitar player would be a pointless exercise. And what makes a good guitar player? Well over the years millions of people have played the guitar, ranging from people who just took a few lessons and didn't learn, to people who became some of the best guitar players in the world, and all of them would agree. To be a good guitar player you are going to need a good guitar, and the best known classic guitars are the Fender Stratocaster, The Gibson Les Paul, the Fender Telecaster, and the Gibson Flying V.
All of these guitars not only draw in people that have different personalities, but they all also have different characteristics themselves. The Fender Stratocaster is the most enduring and diverse guitar of the bunch: the Fender Telecaster is most known for country music, although Kurt Cobain used to play on one, the Les Paul is the hero of old school classic rock, and the Flying V is the most metal of the bunch.
