Default Guitar forums

Just getting back into the electric guitar after 10 years trying to keep my hand in on a classical, (kids, space, money etc etc). Anyway, need a good guitar forum now so which is the best? The two that seem to have the lionís share of contributors would seem to be guitarists.net and ultimate-guitar.com. Are these the best ones to go for?

Depending on what brand/model of guitar you have, there are quite a few forums based on that info. Strat, Les Paul, PRS, Dean, etc.......

I looked at the two you mentioned, and I wouldn't waste my time there.

I think most of the literate guitar players hang out at The Gear Page, which is "non-denominational". As bloozestringer mentioned, most of the good forums are focused on a brand.

TDPRI is a Telecaster centered website, but there are sections to cover all types. Many pro players there as well.

If you want "cosy and close knit", there's a couple you might like to try:
Guitarist Collective
My own...

There are some great guitarists (and musicians) on both the above. Friendly help and advice is always available.
Experience is what teaches us to make a different mistake next time...

I'm frequently on the Gear Page and find it to be a great place. TDPRI is also a top notch forum. The Les Paul Forum has lots of useful info, but they're extremely touchy - post carefully as its easy to get booted out.

This looks interesting. DIYguitarist.com :: Index
I found it looking for BBD delay/chorusing effects. Has anyone here made any projects using BBDs such as SAD1024 or NM3207?
