So I've been playing guitar for a few years (not many) now and the parents are offering to buy a new guitar or amp for the holidays. My current set up is an Ibanez GAX70 and a fairly small 30 watt line 6 spider 2 amp. I was wondering what UG would recommend for achieving a heavier metal sound. Guitar? Amp? what should it be? The price should be around $500, but $100 or $200 more dollars should be fine.
try to get a used amp. you can get a pretty sweet combo for about 500-700 bucks. if you say what kind of music you play we can help you a lot more.
