aIbanez


($4,000-$13,000, from Tom Lee Music)


'Ibanez guitars, produced by a Japanese company called Hoshino, have comfortable body shapes, nice finger boards and special floydroses, which generate a unique sound with great variety. My favourite models are Jem Steve Vai and JS 10th.'


Sha Lam, guitar designer


Silhouette by Ernie Ball


($8,000-$10,000 from Tom Lee Music)


'I play a variety of music from jazz to rock and pop, and this American-made guitar gives all the sounds I need. It's not shiny and has a beautiful woody feel.'


Guy Le Claire, jazz guitarist


Gibson Les Paul Custom


(from $16,000 from Tom Lee Music)


'The guitar body is heavy enough and generates a solid sound and its distortion output is higher compared to other guitars. The appearance is appealing and it feels very good when playing.'


Bond Xue, guitar collector


Taylor


($9,000-$65,000 from Tom Lee Music)


'These US-made acoustic guitars are manufactured to very precise standards so the consistency is the best I have ever seen. They have beautiful tones and are visually appealing. They are wonderful for live performances.'


Richard Glick, US-based guitar consultant

Vendenberg by Peavey
