Hey people!

I currently have around £200 in my bank account not a lot! but I'm saving as from today

Anyway my current gear is

PGM301- With Bareknuckle pickups
Orange 2x12
Laney GH100L

Backup guitar


Schecter hellraiser (i could probably sell this for around £300)

Now although i LOVE my Laney and wont ever sell it, I'm looking for something that is a bit more versatile,

I don't like the way the Laney only has one channel, however once i start saving up, which i will do soon i have three options

ENGL Screamer
http://www.guitarampkeyboard.com/en/76323
+combo amp
+easy to transport
+4 channels
+cheaper
-won't sound as good
-1 speaker

ENGL Powerball
http://www.guitarampkeyboard.com/en/76312
+i already have a orange 2x12 which will sound awesome with it (better than the combo speaker)
+will sound better than the screamer
-heavy
-not as portable

Ibanez Fireman
this http://marcsguitarblog.files.wordpress.com/2008/06/paul_reverse_iceman.jpg
+looks awesome
+will probably play awesome
+i LOVE my PGM so don't really NEED another guitar, however my guitar is signed by Gilbert so the more i play on it the more i risk it getting damaged

If you were in my position guys what 1 of the 3 would you get? I don't gig and am not in a band but maybe its something I'll do in the future

i would stick with the hellraiser and get a 6505 with a 1x12 celestion alnico gold (i promise you this combo works better than a powerball)..quieter indoors and good for recording.

The Powerball and the Screamer are both good.

I'd get the Powerball, but it is just me.

I don't need luck. Ibanez are far superior to Schecter(probably going to get a horde of 16 year olds telling me how awesome schecters are now), Engl's are tone machines and imo superior too peavey and Orange 2x12's are renown for sounding great.

and btw Dimarzio>EMG's

It's not that i don't appreciate the suggestion, i just don't approve of it....

too many generalisations here buddy i have a 6505 engl se 570 and ibanez s series hellraiser they are all good. dont rate the powerball SE or 6505 with the right mods (bias, sparkle, 50w and the emg 24v mod)
