Hey,

So I recently started playing on an old acoustic I had laying around but now I want to move on to an electric. Looking on Craigslist, I narrowed it down to a Dean Vendetta for $75 and a Shecter Omen 6 for $100. Both are in good condition.

For me, it's important that whatever I get is fairly versatile so I can play any genre I decide I like (i.e. blues,rock, etc. - haven't really found my thing yet).

Also, I was looking at the Roland Micro Cube for a starter amp- anyone have some
experience with it?

Thanks.

i'm not really familiar with either of those guitars, but it's hard to go wrong with a microcube. a vox mini3 or da5 is another similar type of thing which is also worth considering.

I saw in a couple of pictures that on Bucketheads Les Paul (only some pictures) that his neck pickup is painted in white. Can anyone explain to me why he would do this, and if there are any pros and cons.

The guy wears a KFC Bucket and a white mask during performances, and you're interested in the color of his pickup covers?

Those guitars are pretty much the same thing, and either would suit your needs. So go with whatever is more aesthetically pleasing. I've heard nothing but good things about the cube amps. Also check out Line 6 Spider amps.

What?
OP: If you see any Vox Pathfinders, be sure to check them out. I heard plenty of good things about them.

Having owned a Line 6 Spider, I would say go for the cube. Spider's aren't bad amps, but they don't hold their value at all and are incredibly hard to sell from experience, whereas cube's are always popular for a reason

edit; what am I saying.... definitely don't get a Spider. Just don't do it...

I'd get the Omen 6 and a Micro Cube. I used to have the 60W version of the Cube and it kicked ass! Great amp for the money.

i'd say the microcube or voxes are more versatile... granted if you only want voxy tones the pathfinder is quite nice.

Get a Roland Cube. I have one and I love it. Versatile and is probably the best sounding practise amp I've played.

I'm a student. I've got no time or space for an amp!

I think I'm going to get the micro cube and the schecter- while the dean looks a little nicer, it retails for about 1/2 to 1/3 of the schecter. So I'm assuming that means it's a bit better.

That schecter neck heel is awful. Just an FYI. If you play the Omen 6, I hope you don't like playing up high on the frets.

The more expensive Schecters have set necks and feel much nicer, but I'm not really a Schecter person anyway. The Omen-6 pickups are very bassy and muddy. Again, not my style. The good news is that guitar is built like a tank, and feels like it, too.

so would you recommend the dean over it?
