    real professional players use anderson guitars. most other brands are used because they get them free. Anderson doesn't do deals for musicians when buying other brands you are mainly paying for the guitars that others get free. With Anderson you get what you pay for TOP QUALITY!

    Here;s a few Rock Star examples:

    Gibson Les Paul (Slash, Peter Frampton, Duane Allman)

    Gibson SG (Angus Young)

    Gibson EDS-1275 (Jimmy Page)

    Paul Reed Smith (Santana)

    Fender Stratocaster (Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Mark Knoplfer)

    Fender Telecaster (Pete Townsend, Bob Weir earlier years)

    Schecter, ESP's and Ibanez are popular metal models.

    Custom Guitars (Trey Anastasio, Jerry Garcia)

    Fender, Gibson, Ibanez, and Dean are the big brand names.

    Yamaha was pretty big, so was Danelectro, but you don't see many people using them anymore.

    Also, there are smaller companies that a lot of bands use, as well as custom guitars.
