Hey guys! I've narrowed my search to two very similar guitars, as mentioned in the title. I've always wanted an Explorer style guitar and have tried LTD's FX 260 Spalted Maple version (which, to my...

They sound bad. But that's not the biggest issue. Plenty of $80 practice amps sound bad. But they're $80 starter amps. MGs cost many, many X more than that $80 practice amp, yet sound no better. ...

In the high-gain br00tz department, I highly doubt it. I've heard a lot of people say that about the V3m -- not their cup of tea for modern metal/chugfest/death metal tone.

I'm thinking a different amp would make you happy. Can you afford to get another amp? It sounds like your Carvin is good for a lot of what you play -- just not the more modern sounding metal. I...

Have you tried an EQ pedal in the loop? They can work miracles. If it wasn't for my MXR 10-band, I'd have probably moved on from my 6505+, as no amount of eq'ing through the amp alone could make me...

I would throw a new pair of power tubes in there -- JJ 6l6gcs sound amazing and you likely need them anyway.

I wouldn't pay $20 for either of those amps. Seriously, it's ridiculous they can even think of charging those prices for such garbage. (I am a jaded ex-MG owner.)

If you don't already have an OD pedal I'd say that's a priority. By using an OD such as a Tubescreamer or Boss SD-1 clone as a boost, you'll get more cut, bite, and more "scream" on your pinch...

Yes, get an EQ pedal. I also recommend the MXR 10-band over anything else. Mine is sort of set purely for my high gain sound, and it makes a huge difference in tone. If you think your tone is good...

I think he'd be happy with a 5751 in both V1 and V5. They really don't reduce the overall gain that much. If he runs his gain at "3" normally, he might run it at "3.5 - 4" with the 5751s. They...

I would run it in the loop, because the preamp on a 5150/6505 series amp causes quite a bit of noise. By placing it in the loop, you're...
