We analyze feedback from tens of thousands of music gear owners and process that data with the Gearank Algorithm to produce rating scores out of 100 for thousands of individual musical instruments and equipment.
Our results and recommendations are presented and explained in Gear Guides like these:
The ratings are dominated by Ibanez and Schecter with the highest rated overall being the Schecter Reaper-7 Multiscale in the $500 to $1000 price bracket.
Elixir Strings Nanoweb Phosphor Bronze Light achieved the highest score in the light gauge category with a Gearank rating of 94 based on over 1,800 guitarist ratings.
We analyzed 60 models with up to 3 tiers, and more than 12,500 rating sources, to uncover the highest rated Single X, Double X, Table, Z, Column and A-Frame stands.
