Yo, what's up? New, here, and if you dare...Don't be afraid to talk to me, lol. Just started playing my guitar I got a month ago from a friend, but after an hour of actually tryna play it, the gain on the amp screws up on me (bear with me, I'm just a n00b, literally, at it). Help needed! Thanks.

My frontman outright died on me once.

How is the gain "screwing up"? persay, like, are you not getting enough? or too much?
I'm Joel. I play guitar. I am a student. I look at the cost of tuition, not in a dollar value, but in the guitars I'm sacrificing now, to be able to buy later.

it's the amp death-ace.

if you're broke, pick up a $15 fab metal pedal and put it in front.

if you can save up for a new amp then that would be good.

Well, it's just giving off lot's of static, I mean I can still play it, but when I turn the knob, it just gives off a load of static. I am tryna sell a few things for an Epiphone Les Paul Special II when I head to Guitar Center in Dallas again, so I could try getting a new amp then instead. Also, the tone controls, won't work on the Squire Strat, so I might take it to get repaired if I can.

nothing to fix.

you just barely noticing the difference, because of amp, guitar quality, and your fresh ears.

The problem is, sadly, you have a frontman 15g

It will mess up a lot like that. Looks like it's time for you to learn clean songs

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
